A Winter walk...finally


So far, this winter has been quite green and warm...almost spring in December! Shortly after Christmas, we were finally blessed with some cold weather and glorious snow! I know, most of you are muttering through pursed lips and wondering just what kind of a lunatic I really am...but I love winter!!

Since, my whole family loves winter too, I traded my apron for a pair of insulated overalls, plaid coat, a toque and set off on a family walk (with James calling me a hillbilly under his breath).

Even though, there wasn't a ton of snow, it was still nice to feel the frosty air nip at your face (and feeze your nose hairs...not that I have lots though!) and to hear the crunch of what snow there was under foot...

...and to make like an otter, sliding down a snow covered slope..Isabel was much more graceful gliding down this hill than I was!

The beauty of a snow and frost covered landscape always makes me take a moment to breathe it all in...a fresh white blanket under a clear blue sky, glistening in the afternoon sun...although, it isn't that pretty while trying to maneuver a vehicle through a raging blizzard, I'll give you that!

...but still, I am very grateful for all of the seasons that we are lucky enough to have...especially winter!
