Beautiful winter ~

Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery toed slippers of snow
and we were children once again.
Bill Morgan, Jr.


It has been a delightfully wintery winter here~
Cold, and sharp with brilliant blue skies, just the way New England is supposed to be in winter.
  snowing and blowing at times...
and cold enough to keep the snow, so that is squeaks under your shoes when you walk.
A brown, crunchy, cold and snowless winter is just not the same.
Of course I realize some of you are shaking your heads at me, go ahead ~ I don't mind.
Spring will be here before you know it, and the cold just a memory; so I will embrace it while I can.
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food, and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.  ....
