And now I turn the last page of the calendar. Tomorrow begins as a different year. Well good for me. Several inches of snow fell in the early evening yesterday and the sky cleared letting the full moon bring out every sparkle of the dry fluffy snow crystals. What a lovely scene that was! Breathtaking natural winter beauty. Ashton left at eight this morning to pick up Bracken and head for Mesa for a couple of days with her uncle Steve. She and I have been working on a jigsaw puzzle of a family of wolves in a meadow. I worked on that for a while after my tomato juice, coffee and oatmeal. Made my bed and did the dishes and, of all things, I vacuumed. Snow began falling about ten this morning and now it stopped. Snowfall was steady and heavy. By two fifteen I tried to sweep the sidewalk but gave up because I couldn’t keep up with it. Well it was all too pretty to just merely sit and look at so I went for a walk. No one else had cleaned their walks all week so in my hiking boots walking was heavier work than it should have been. I went east to Aaron and back. Just me and a dozen dogs. Whoopee! I made a snow angel in the driveway and got so wet I had to change into dry clothes. That does it for another year. Looking back it was a pretty good year. Plan to begin another good one tomorrow. Hope you all will do the same.
