Even with the time change, it's very dark when I get up in the morning. As I was going about my morning routine building the fire, heating coffee water, feeding the cats & dogs, etc., the sky was trying to brighten up. No sunrise today. About 6:30 a.m. it started to snow :) Being the snow lover that I am, it simply made me happy to stand on the front porch and watch the flakes fall to the ground. It smelled so good - like winter. That cold, crisp, fresh air smell. I didn't stand there long, it really was cold. It didn't accumulate and later on turned to rain and the rest of the day has been dreary and I've spent it inside doing housework :( I love a clean house but I wish I could achieve that without having to scrub and vacuum! It does look and smell nice and I'm glad it's finished.
I'm so excited that my jasmine plant is flowering again. One single, white blossom. I can always tell it has bloomed as the fragrance is so strong it permeates the entire house. Another wonderful smell. The blooms only last a day or so but are well worth the wait.
It's thankful Thursday at our house: Hubby comes home tonight after being away all week. I am always very grateful for that!
