Does anyone remember the unseasonably warm December we had? The one where everyone was wondering whether we'd have a white Christmas?
I miss that.
I mean, I'm glad we have snow now, but we've hit the part of the winter where it's cold. I'm taking the Sparks to camp next weekend, and our camp planning contained a lot of "... and if it's too cold, we'll just do that inside". We'll still spend time outside, but it'll be active time - no sitting around the campfire.
The snow has also made it clear that I should have done more trimming of the bushes and trees around the house. The snow makes the branches bow down and block the sidewalk. On Friday, I took the clippers outside and lopped some of them off.
That's right, I'm gardening in winter.
I hardly recognize myself.
