It's snowing...again! The trees are covered in white, the branches looking as if a thousand children decorated them with giant puffs of cotton. From my parlor window, I look out onto the porch and see occasional splashes of color - a crimson cardinal, and his gold breasted mate, and the rich green of the pines beneath blankets of snow.
I'm a summer girl, but there is something so peaceful in this scene. It's the snow of childhood's past - the deep, fort forming, snowball making, snow crunching kind. The kind that tempts me, even now, to grab a trash can lid, and go careening full speed down my small hill. Of course, there will be a mug of hot cocoa when I return. Some things I'll never outgrow.
Wherever you are, I hope your day is filled with joy and happy thoughts.
