I know winter has its unpleasant moments and not everybody likes it but I LOVE it. I love the drama of the storm predictions (even though I always get let down when we don’t get tons of snow and ice) and how beautiful it is and how wonderful it is to be at home when its snowing out…

Anyway….no snow yet but we should get some. Of course we NEVER get a lot–always seems to go north or south. It’s gorgeous outside right now though—-just a thin layer of ice covering all the bushes and trees.
