After a strangely mild beginning to winter, we've suddenly been hit with deep snow and ice cold temperatures. Most people are complaining, but I think it's about time we had some snow. I think it's important for the trees, the animals, and the ground to have a good freeze, the way nature intended it for this part of the world.
The morning walk was impossible today; we turned back towards home after only a few steps.
Cabin fever set in. The dogs were restless. Thankfully Rafael and I had a lot to babble, smile, and laugh about. By the end of the day, though, we got pretty grumpy, too. We are so used to our walks in the fresh air every morning.
One helpful thing I have learned as a new Mommy is, hard days always end, and you always have a fresh start tomorrow.
