hello december!

December 1, 2010

this morning, I woke up to a world of softly falling snowflakes.  for me, a quiet world filled with swirling snow is even better than a sunny morning with a temperature around 70*.  I think that this is a result of many mornings waking up to a winter wonderland and praying that the roads were bad enough for the buses to stay in their garage.  despite being in Vermont, snow days didn’t come very often (they preferred to give us 2-hour delays), but when they did, you can bet that I spent the whole day in my pjs, sipping on hot chocolate, and watching daytime TV until the snow was sticky enough to act as a construction material.

snow men, forts, and a few very necessary snowball fights.

and if we already had a little snow on the ground, we could pull out the saucers and speed our way down the hill on the side of our yard.  afternoons usually meant a few laps of cross country skiing before the sun went down and it got too spooky to be out by the woods.

and the best part was the night, because you’d already done your homework for the next day.  everyone knows that if you don’t do your homework then you will most definitely not have a snow day.  snow days only happen when you’re 100% prepared to go to class.

so today’s little gift of snow was a wonderful way to kick off December.

how do you feel about those gorgeous little pieces of snow?  friend or foe?

    I love snow when I’m looking at it from my breakfast table. I hate when I’m walking through it in the bitter cold at night or commuting in it.

    All we got here yesterday was rain and 60 degree temps :( I would have loved some snow!! We have a huge hill in my backyard, so I used to love sledding for hours…

    I HATE snow. Passionately. I have a lot of bad associations with it (things I’ve wanted to do were cancelled due to snow, when I worked at a horse farm the snowiest months were the most taxing, my best friend and I got into a huge fight during the snow storm last year). I don’t mind the first snow fall (provided that there is very little of it) since it is often very pretty and relaxing. But that’s about it for me. Truly.

    Can’t wait to move out of Pennsylvania into somewhere warm and sunny! :)
