Glorious Snow! What a beautiful gift for the December days as they draw closer to Christmas. Despite the fact that I could not mail my packages and run my errands today, it was so pleasing to be home bound. Rather than bustle around, I wrapped presents and baked, and walked in the silent white landscape that only somewhat resembles my neighborhood. Happy passers-by bundled to the tip of their noses pass by, waving cheerfully, walk their dogs and pull children on sleds. Vivienne is most eager for the baked apples we will enjoy, a family ritual for the first snow of the season.
