Snow!

Snow!

We got our first snow — just a light dusting of tiny snow-pellets. My wholly unreliable thermometer (that’s what you get when you only spend 3 bucks) reads 20 degrees this morning, and I think this is certainly the end for the late-season cosmos, the asters, although I have a hunch that the unstoppable chard out in the veggie garden will somehow survive even this.

I love my little house in winter. It’s so cozy and warm. My only heat source is this freestanding gas heater in the living room. I am very fond of this heater — it goes tick-tick-tick-tick-whooosh every so often, and is highly companionable. So this morning there’s snow outside, tea and a pile of dogs on the couch inside, and all seems well.

One thought on “Snow!

  1. Hey Charlotte – nothing like a pile of dogs on a cold fall winter day…we’re working on accumulating our own…we’ll be getting our second retriever as a graduation present for E in the spring…thanks for your comments and for stopping by my new blog… all of what you’re going through with Patrick’s passing has really hit home with me as my little bro who lives with us almost died of an overdose a few months ago…all those long days while they couldn’t revive him…I can only imagine… I’m glad you are finidng comfort in your welcoming home, pile of dogs, and sleepy garden…
