Today has been busy. Put away the peanut brittle I made yesterday - this batch turned out edible - I cut up the fudge and tucked it away. Also managed to make caramel pretzels and oatmeal raisin cookies this morning. The kitchen is now clean and the rest of the day is mine for writing.
Oh, and it's SNOWING!!! I've been waiting for this day. I love snow. Hate driving in it, but love watching it fall from the sky. There's something so wondrous and miraculous about snow. The intricacies of each tiny flake, the startling cold of it as it falls onto your cheeks, the brilliance of it once it blankets the ground and the sun strikes it. And don't forget the way it magically transforms everything common and turns it into a fantasy world of pristine white.
Later this week I'll share with you one of my favorite memories connected with snow. But for now, I'd love to hear from you. Do you like snow? Have you ever seen snow? Would you prefer to never see it again?
Thanks to everyone (or anyone) who comes by. I know the word isn't out yet, but I'm here now, and I hope we'll share some great times together.
