Tomorrow is officially the first day of winter and we've already had two snow storms. This one was serious, though. I think we got 16 - 20 inches! I'm grateful to have a warm, comfortable home to snuggle into and my husband to keep me company.

Because of the timing of our sojourn in Brisbane, Australia, and because their seasons are opposite to ours - we experienced spring and summer 2008 in the U.S., then spring and summer (08-09) in Australia, then spring and summer back in the U.S. (09). So, we've had a bit of an adjustment to the cold fall and winter weather. The snow is beautiful, though . . . from the comfort of our living room. :-)
