I love the Snow Season (I won't call it the Winter Season, because the season of Snow spans beyond the season of Winter here in Ontario). I love that when I take deep breathes of the crisp snowy air I feel refreshed and grateful for being alive and able to enjoy its freshness. I love how the snow twinkles in the sunlight, and the moonlight. Some people run and hide at the first sight of snow - I smile with excitement like a kid in a toy store as I watch the snow flakes (the snow fairies) dance their way to the ground, and hope enough will accumulate so I can go play (to make snow angels with the kids, to slide down the hill, to go snow-shoeing on our trails, to make snowmen or have snow fights with Marley and the kids - Marley likes to play in the snow too :)). The Snow Season is a perfect PLAY season.
Then, when I'm all played out, I stomp the snow off my boots, and make my way in the house to our roaring fireplace. There, I curl up on with a soft fuzzy blanket on the couch and smile at the warmth of the fire, and at the site of the snow still twinkling outside. And sometimes, I even catch a glimpse of the birds and bunnies feasting on the fresh birdseed I put out for them.
