It was nearly 60 degrees today and raining.
Hello?! It’s January! I don’t know about you, but I want a good, heavy snowfall. The kind that makes everyone run to the store the day before for milk and bread, in fear of being housebound for days. The kind of snowfall that turns the world white and makes the outside glow at midnight like it was a blue day, that covers everything with a hush so the smallest twig cracking or flutter of birds’ wings can be heard clearly. The kind of snowfall that would enable Violet to make as many snowmen and snow angels as she wants, instead of having to pretend she’s making snow angels on the kitchen floor.
You may think I’m crazy, but I don’t care. I love each season and that includes Winter. Budding flowers, thunderstorms, falling leaves and yes, even blizzards are all wonderful to me.
As long as I have enough milk and bread.
