It started snowing yesterday afternoon..then I had a nap..when I woke up the ground was white. I thought it might be an apparition or a nightmare..but it was not.
This is our first snowfall of the winter. I have been wearing my crocs with socks..it may be time to put them away. Winter doesn’t officially arrive for another six weeks or so..I knew it would be early again and it was only a matter of time. I have to go upstairs and find my parka..and my mittens… and maybe my cheerful winter attitude too.
I am so not a winter person..I like it 72 degrees year round. I like sunshine and warmth…not cold and darkness. Since some idiot decided to change the time..the sun sets at 5PM. I think I would like to hibernate like a sleepy old bear..or a stinky old skunk. ( I am hoping that all the skunks are sleeping away the winter..I let Chance out this evening off lead.)
We started the outdoor woodstove this year on October 30th. The woodstove keeps the house and the hot water toasty warm. Far Guy is still cutting wood for the woodshed, he has enough cut for the winter but would like to fill it up …it must be a guy thing.
**** Area News: Someone I have known for years ( since high school) is growing one of those Jack Pine Savage beards. He looks like he is impersonating someone who wears a hat and has a horse and buggy. I wanted to get a photo of his beard..since it was so interesting looking with multiple colors..brown, blonde and grey. He was fairly uncooperative. He only let me look at his beard when I put my camera away.
In our Senior Class in High School he was voted the “guy with the prettiest eyes” and “a wolf” ..
I did get a shot of his other assets:)
