Finally. Other than the big snow dump in late October we’ve barely had a dusting of the white stuff. I thought it might be an entire winter of bare earth. But now this.

Walking out of the village we watched children sliding down the good slope at the country club, and one teenager attempting to ride his snow board with little success. The trees stood out in monochrome, each one clearly showing its unique structure.

We turned around at the house with the “BEWARE OF DOG” signs (that always make me think of this) and hiked back up the steep hill, feeling virtuous and looking forward to hot tea.

    There is beauty in snow covering the earth, pristine at first.

    Hey, I recognize that view! Snowy here too. Happy’s doing her trick of running full speed with her head down and her tongue out to scoop up a mouthful.

    Tell us more about feeling virtuous. (And the tea. What type of tea?!)

    Post-exercise virtuous. Yorkshire Gold tea.
