Weekly Photo Challenge: Winter

January 1, 2012 at 8:15 am (Blogging, Weather) (, , , , )

Winter; it’s finally here. The snow was too late for the holidays. There was no skiing or sledding then. Even today, there is less than an inch of snow shadowing the sidewalk that my front window overlooks. However, that hasn’t stopped the neighbourhood children from having fun. There are a chorus line of snow angels, made perhaps by a two or three year old child, cavorting down my sidewalk.

Someone is having fun.

I’m sitting here wishing for snow (a blizzard). As I write this it is New Year’s Eve but I am expected no where tonight or tomorrow and wish to be engulfed by a million snowflakes as I sit inside and read.

Winter: Five Windows on the Season is a Canadian book praising our coldest of seasons. Here are a few reviews. I’m not reading this book  now – I’ll save this one to read on a hot summer’s day. Right now, I’m immersed in steamy mysteries.

Happy New Years. Go and enjoy a walk outside where-ever you are.

    A blizzard? You want a blizzard? What is that you want to do so much at home that you could want such bad weather?
    Or is it that there is somewhere you really do not want to go? I could be with you on that one!

      To be more accurate – I just want lots of snow; a brown, cold winter is depressing. So, I’m hoping for a snowy January.
