It has been snowing lightly off and on all day and evening. We probably don't have more than a few inches, but it is cold enough that it is sticking. It is so beautiful. Here is a picture of my little house in the snow this afternoon. We have more than that tonight. I just went outside and took a picture of the snow on my car and on a bush by the front door. I love snow, especially right as it starts. It is so quiet and there is that heavy, expectant feel to the air. I wouldn't like to live somewhere where I never had any snow. It is nice here along the coast because we get a little bit, but it doesn't overwhelm us.
Beau had his little coat on tonight when I took him for our usual walk. He doesn't usually like to go out in "weather", but he didn't mind it much tonight.
I was going to start my Christmas cards today, but ended up doing everything but. Look at this wonderful "Lodge" brand iron dutch oven. I found it in a thrift shop for $25.00. That sounds high for a thrift shop, but I think they go for triple that usually. Tonight I cooked a pork tenderloin in it and it was perfectly browned outside and so tender inside. I oven roasted some potatoes with brussels sprouts and carrots and even baked a pumpkin pie. No special occasion either! I was just in a good mood -- probably from the snow. I was in an awful mood on Monday when the wind was blowing about 50 mph. I hate wind -- it scrambles my brain!
