It’s Starting to Look a Lot Like Winter


We got our first real snow fall on Saturday. It was coming down pretty steady all day, fluffy-fat flakes of white stuff. At this point, it’s new enough (and late enough in the season) to be pretty.

We didn’t get a huge amount, but enough to cover everything in a blanket of white. A lot of it is gone already, the rest may not last much longer, but I think winter is here.

Sunday morning was actually bright & sunny. Husband and I were sitting in the living room and I happened to look up and see a fox trotting down the hill and across our neighbor’s yard. I was wishing for my camera, but it was down in the basement on my desk. It was a pleasure to see though, and we’ve watched several deer saunter past, close enough that we can see they are wearing their thick winter coats.

I’m feeling pretty good about November. Last week I was not feeling so great, starting around Wednesday. Went to the doctor on Friday and ended up with a prescription for antibiotics. Felt really crappy on the weekend, but feeling much better now and looking forward to December.

Starting Monday I have 2 weeks of work left, then I’m on vacation until January. Can’t wait!

brrrrr snowy cold! I like having about one snow per winter, just for the pretty, but am glad it's not more frequent. I am a winter wussy. :)

I love your yard in the snow! Happy December!

It was pretty while it lasted, but it's all gone now. It was 8 degrees on the way in to work this morning! Not complaining, I'd much rather have warm weather. :)

Put together in a list like that, your November exercising looks incredible! It's amazing how much exercise gets done when you just do an hour's worth of exercise each day. I am impressed.

...when I look out my window, my reaction is more of a "oh crap that looks cold". Somehow photos always look more pleasant than the view out the window...

Nice job on the workouts!

Merry - I like seeing these monthly summaries; gives me a sense of accomplishment (most of the time anyway). :)

Carla - Some hanging out at home with Husband and the felines, plus a trip to Nova Scotia to visit our families. Looking forward to it!

Sagan - It did make for nice photos, but I can't say I'm sorry it's all gone for the moment. I'm not in a rush to be snow bound.
