“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
It’s almost 4:30 a.m. and I just peeked outside. White. And so it begins.
If the weather forecasters are correct, and it appears they are, we’re in for the first cold snap of the season. Break out the quilts, books, reading socks, and hot tea. And snow shovels.
I’d love to hunker down at home all day but we are headed down the hill early to Gerry’s appointment at the vascular improvement program, followed by a bit of shopping. Maybe we’ll hygge this afternoon.

In other news, I’ve been working on a project to download all of the posts since I started blogging in 2008, and compile them into a format I could keep for my personal records. I decided to create a book for every year and the first, for 2008, arrived this week. I’m very happy with how it turned out—nothing fancy but it serves my purpose—so I’m moving forward with creating books for 2009 through 2016. Fun stuff!
