Good Morning, Winter!

What a difference a day makes!  When I woke up this morning I could FEEL the soft heaviness.  If you live somewhere that  gets heavy snows, you know what I mean.  Everything just feels softer, weightier and dulled after a heavy snow.  Our sky is heavy today as well.  It's gray and leaking its contents even still.  It is time for me to get over autumn and embrace this other beauty... winter.

Talk about a late bloomer!  This poor clematis blossom looked like a frozen beauty.


You can feel the heaviness just by looking at this photo, can't you?


It also seems pretty quiet in our backyard.


Bode was pretty surprised about the overnight change.  
  

He got wound up for a bit.


He's quite a princess, though.  He had his fun and then wanted inside quickly.
Viszlas don't have an undercoat so I'll try to not make fun of him.

Steven's cat escaped outside, when I let the dog out -as usual. Funny thing, he stayed on the step and came back in with the dog. Thanks Anne, now I want cocoa. :)

Wow, you have snow already?! The earliest we get it is late November. I LOVE the still, muffled silence of the world after a fresh snowfall :0)
