a bit like gold










here... a decent snowfall is extremely rare. the odds of one snow day are pretty likely, but any more than two is nothing short of a miracle. here... school will get canceled because of an inch or two. i love what a blanket of snow can do. a little white and suddenly an old fence, a cluttered yard, and a garden of weeds become a winter wonderland. sigh. just beautiful. it almost makes me wish i lived somewhere where i got more of it.... almost. i am pretty in love with my year round green though. it's amazing how a little of this real winter weather can suddenly make you sooo thankful for that nice woodpile, and warm blankets, good books, soup, warm wassle on the stove all day... lovely things. in fact, i think i had better go get some wassle going, i have a great book on the way, and i think today is the day to try that creamy potato soup recipe from the rhythm of family (link in my sidebar). oh... i suppose i do have a lot of love for winter.
