First Snow

Eating Snow

We woke up this morning to a shiny white blanket over our entire house.

Just seeing the first snow puts a smile on our faces!  We know we are trapped together, forced to watch too much tv, work on some crafts, play inside, and yes, eat, play, and investigate in the snow! 

One of our favorite things to do each snowy morning is to go out and follow any footsteps we find - animal tracks lead us to secret hiding spots, encounters with other animals... imaginative explorations!

I guess that's what the snow does - it forces one, whether inside or out, to live in a creative life, stuck with those you love or by yourself you have to think of new ways to kill time or savor it!  I may feel different after the sixth snow day...  I'll get back with you on that.
