A WELCOMING WHITENESS

Softly powder falls on this early December day. We are reminded yearly of nature’s breathtaking wand that sprightly whitens the landscape within all but hours. It is nothing less than a magical painting.

I peer out over the view afforded freely by windows, twice arising old notions. The first is quietly comforting. I have nothing to do and all day to do it ! The snow silently descends and nearly beckons me to further relax and put another log on the fire.

Yes, that is for real. We burn a real fire every day. No gas. No valves or knobs; all logs cured for three years, hard wood only. Yes, that is notion #2.

As a farm boy, snow wasn’t always this luxurious. It just made all the work a little harder.

OK . Notion #3. And, why am I counting?

One thought on “A WELCOMING WHITENESS

  1. I think this is my favorite one yet. And I love this line, ” I have nothing to do and all day to do it!” Can’t wait to sit by that fire at the hubbub! xoxo
