Well it is that time of year again. Snow has begun to fall all over the country, even as far South as Texas. For some reason this year mother nature decided that our side of Michigan would be spared for a few days, while the rest of the country got dumped on. Finally, our luck ran out last night and by this morning we have about 6-10 inches on the ground. More is falling.
What is December without a snowfall? It kind of chimes in the holiday spirit, and makes the season seem right. I can remember Decembers where there was no snow and others where there was too much since I have lived in Michigan. It does make life more interesting after the first real snowfall. One tries to remember where one stored their snow boots, where that rug went that is supposed to be near the outside doors for boot removal, and even the last location of the snow shovel.
Ah winter! Ah the snow! I think I will just brew more coffee and blog! All of those other things will work out later. It is a reminder of another year approaching its close, and the a time to just be happy that one has a warm home and food in the refrigerator, as well a friend or two to share life's experiences with. Here is my buddy Blue as he snuggles into a snowbank trying to figure it all out in his first winter of his young life.
Enjoy your day, and treasure the moments in them!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain
