neige

Woke up to about 2 inches of snow this morning, i loved it! it's the second snow in 2 weeks and we haven't even hit halloween yet. all i've heard is complaints, i must be the only one wanting more. on the news they always say "but don't fret, by the end of the week we'll be back in the double digits". this is canada, it snows here....every year.

i adore it though, that white blanket out there on my lawn is magic to me. it's even better when it's a surprise, like an unexpected gift. my favourite snowfalls are at night, watching it fall in headlights and streetlamps, going for a walk in the stillness and coming back inside for hot chocolate (with marshmallows of course) or tea.


snow conjurs up thoughts of fires, baking, the smell of cloves, snowflakes on mittens, christmas shopping in little villages, mulled wine, rosy cheeks, cuddling up, decorating the tree, twinkling lights, cozy pubs, cobblestone streets, blizzards that keep me housebound (from work, yippee). i could go on but there's already too many commas.


bring on the brrr.
