Our wintery front...before the BIG snowfall....always a ready chair front and back because I do sit out there, even for a few minutes from time to time, with a big mug of tea, wrapped in a wooly scarf and sometimes I even bring the car rug - my grandfather's old wool plaid blanket - out with me.
I agree with my pal, that this will be a long winter...but maybe not! Maybe it will end early - like this week with a forecasted meltdown due. Crazy weather. The snow is pretty if one does not have to drive anywhere. I love the quiet muffled hush of the snow covered earth.
