First snow in the valley

This morning I walked H to school in a light fall of  rain and a little super-wet snow.  As I exited the school, the air was full of fat, fluffy flakes.  It even seems to be sticking the tiniest bit now. The leaves are only maybe half fallen from the trees, and the snow is forming a new (spotty) carpet over the old one of green grass and yellow leaves.

Baby C was either bored with it or too overawed to really react.  Or maybe his coat is just so puffy that he would rather hold still than try to move.  I’m leaning toward the last explanation for his stillness.

T-minus four days.  I’m living in rooms full of boxes and clutter.


About sayingthings

K lives in the US with her man and kiddos, knits, cans, dehydrates, bakes bread, (but doesn't cook regular food, particularly), crochets, spins, gardens, studies for a degree that never seems to end, and um, works. Sometimes she wastes time online. Also -- and family, she's looking at you here -- sometimes she swears and says things you might not agree with. But she still loves you.
