Snow, snow, snow!

This has not been my most favorite week ever, to be honest. :) It rained steadily, pretty much non-stop for four days straight. Monday through Thursday: cool, wet, and downright gloomy. I couldn't walk outside, and besides that I couldn't get motivated to do anything productive. A couple of other little annoying things happened: I wasted $25 on misprinted checks that are unusable, plans for my dad to build me a big bookcase fell through because wood is so expensive (I can't spend $140 on a bookcase!), etc. Trivial things, I know, but they piled up and made me a grumpy girl.
But then...last night it started snowing. And this morning, when I woke up, I could actually tell it was morning (unlike the last four dreary mornings). Sunlight was shining through my windows and there was a couple inches of glorious snow on the ground outside.
After this rather crummy week, it was such a beautiful morning. :)
So after breakfast I bundled up and spent some time stomping around in the snow.
My favorite things about snow: the amazing quiet that comes with it, the interesting shapes that appear everywhere, and the fact that everything looks beautiful covered in snow (seriously. Even briar patches).


And when I got back inside, the whole house smelled like chocolate cake because my mom was baking one for my grandpa's birthday celebration tomorrow. A perfect day. :)

Until next time,
