Yes, I said “First Snow.” It’s October 27. I was so unprepared for this in so many ways. It seems like just yesterday, I was planting my garden. Tonight, when I look out the back window, the few plants that are left standing out there are covered with snow.
I think I can find my coat….but I have no idea where my boots are! Not that I think I’ll be trudging through feet of snow tomorrow morning, but they do help keep my feet warm!
Tonight is the kind of night where I just want to cuddle up under a blanket. You know…one of those cold and wet nights, where it takes you a bit longer to get home from work….and when you get home, you want to stay there. Oh, to put on my jammies and some thick socks, and have a cup of hot chocolate! Right now would be good, but unfortunately, I have to head out for an errand in a bit. Brrrrrrrrrrr….it is supposed to go into the 20’s here tonight!
When I looked out my window earlier this evening, I saw the little boy across the way staring excitedly out the back window of his house. He’s about 4 years old, and I suppose that to him, this is a GREAT day! I do have to admit, that as much as I don’t like the thought of winter starting already, it is really pretty outside my window right now.
I hope I can find the 4 year old inside of me…..it’s going to be a long winter!!
