A strong front blew through on Friday night, gusty winds tearing most of the leaves from the trees, a few flurries warning us that this was the end. The cows sleep in the barn now, and they will until spring. Soon, we, too, will tuck ourselves away in the warmth and glow of our own little home.
Things to Look Forward To In Winter:
Ice covered trees;
Long evenings of reading aloud;
Three winter birthdays!
Cold air in my lungs;
The scent of the pines on the coldest mornings;
Shattering the ice on the cows’ water tanks;
Firewood stacked near the porch;
The hush of a sleeping, waiting world;
The first haze of green on the wooded hills when at last we’ve reached the end.
What do you enjoy about the winter?
