This is what we saw when we all eventually got out of bed this morning. (Yes, I suppose I should put the lawn furniture away.)
The child and I even saw the family of deer making their morning crossing. Our land is situated between two woodlots, and across the road from a good 150 acres of land that is nothing but Deer Haven. Surprisingly, though, there aren’t many deer at all (and I am very grateful for that). This small family of three tends to sleep in the wooded half of our lot, as it is very private there. (My husband has been known to hammock in the nude in the same location, so that’ll give you an indication that it’s fairly safe for a deer snooze, too.) Anyway, we always see their tracks, and sometimes see them, too.
I am just glad for the snow, even if it’s just a bit of a dusting. It makes the world much brighter. And then there’s all that about a White Christmas and all (humbug humbug).
