Thoughts of snow

December 6, 2007

I can't help it. I think in book titles.

Yesterday was A Snowy Day.

I do enjoy Snow.

When I went out with our dog, I heard glorious Snow Music.

I wondered who made the Tracks in the Snow and thought about where birds and animals went to stay warm.

It was windy and cold and also brutal. I felt a little like Irene, La Valient as I delivered the trash to the bin (Brave Irene sounds especially strong in Spanish, I think). Like Irene, I fought the howling wind for the greater good of the family!

When I came inside again, I was Stone Cold but happy as I cozied up with a hot cup of tea and a good book!

What was your winter day like?
