Hello everyone!  I hope 2010 is off to a marvelous start in your neck of the woods.  We’ve enjoyed a delightful combination of activity, amusement, introspection, and joy.  So much so, that I don’t quite know where to begin.  Some photos, perhaps then, of our red roof house under a blanket of snow.

We were surprised by it, for there was only rain in the forecast.  Sitting in the living room at Bridget’s, it came on rather delicately, a few giant flakes until there were piles of them, and so much laughter and giddiness (Snowsuits!  Boots! Hats! Mittens!) on the part of children and adults that my heart filled with joy at their excitement.  Snow in the Pacific Northwest is quite different than anywhere I’ve experienced it.  The tiniest bit inspires paroxysms of glee!

Back at our house, it was peaceful, of the variety that only a blanket of snow can bring, and the light of evening, exquisite in its beauty.
