Dream no more: it’s here! Deep drifting mounds of fluffy white snow. the kind that is soft and packable and holds the large crystal shapes in fragile sparkly points… just visible long enough to astound you with their beauty before they melt away.
I couldn’t help it- I had to go out into the hot tub this morning to experience it falling into my hair and the steam from the hot water. To sit in the bone mellowing heat while looking at the falling snow and newly white world was bliss. Pure bliss.
It started about 3AM this morning- I know, I was up and checked on it. By daylight it was perhaps two inches deep and steadily increasing. Still falling lightly, it may get to three inches, yet! I am so glad the Christmas lights went up last week- it is supposed to turn colder and no one wants to be fiddling with the lights and gutters, etc. in this weather! The cold should preserve the snow cover for a little while.
Our house is filled with the happy jumble of Christmas decorations being unpacked, we started our Advent devotions, and now I have a snowy scene to gaze at while I drink a cup of hot chocolate. Who says Stay-At-Home moms don’t have their perks? They aren’t the stuff of big bank bank accounts, but they sure feed the soul.
