Well this morning I got up to about 4 inches of snow on the ground. The trees are covered in a pretty layer of snow with white topping the gray brown of the trunks. The evergreens are frosted with snow. The world was somewhat silent but a neighbor is snow blowing their drive now and the hum of a working motor interrupts the peace of the picture outside my window.
It’s still snowing. No wild wind, swirling blizzard but the snow keeps falling. I’ve not been out in it and am hoping to avoid it for as long as possible. There’s a fire in the fireplace in the family room and the house is a comfy haven from the cold outside.
It almost seems holiday like with this first snow. Our holiday will be early this year. Gin and Stephanie both have enough days off in a row that they are going to come home. I can’t wait to see them and hug them. We will be able to share a family Christmas with Beth. It will be the six of us just like it used to be. Really that is the BEST present I could have. I’m very excited to see them and to have them spend a day with us. I’m sorry they will spend two days driving to get a day with us but I’m glad they are coming home.
