I am loving winter this year! Snow is always welcome at Christmas, but usually mid -January I am ready for spring. We have had a string of beautiful sunny days and we have delighted in wintery walks with our new dog. I was thinking today about the beauty of a fresh snowfall and the quietness that settles over everything - Until my crew shows up that is! But the noise and chaos is worth it when I can look out my window at the menagerie of snow creatures that populate my side yard. We have the classic snowman walking a snow dog, a snow lion, a snow chicken in a snow nest, a snow mouse and a snow skyscraper. What fun!
