The snow came down for hours yesterday - silent, soft flakes. I'm tired of the snow, but it still works it's magic. You can't help but feel the world is enchanted for those few, quiet hours when everything's covered in a pillow of pristine powder.
This fall is the best fall. Today is the best day. I went on a meandering walk through my neighborhood this afternoon and discovered the loveliest views. It's 65 and sunny. Neighbors are raking leaves, listening to music, and taking walks. The roads are quiet and the squirrels are out in crowds stocking up for … Continue reading a beautiful day in the neighborhood
