I saw my first snowflakes today.
They were wet and slushy, but nonetheless they were snowflakes.
After I got home from work, I made some nice hot vanilla-flavored coffee and sat right in front of the window reading, occasionally looking up to watch the snowflakes fall.
I spent a very pleasant half an hour reading my latest quilt mystery. I am sure that five months from now I will not be nearly as excited to watch the snow fall, but I always love the first flakes.
I am dining alone tonight, so I cooked a chicken breast and made a nice colorful salad. It's probably the last time I will enjoy fresh garden tomatoes until next August. To commemorate the event, I sat at the dining room table which is all decked out in Halloween black and orange.
While it was snowing I noticed the maple tree still had a few leaves, so I ran out in the wet snow/rain and cut down a few more branches to refill the pumpkin.
My blog post was just interrupted by some political poll. I must be in a good mood because I was very nice and even answered all her questions. I usually just hang up on any person who dares to interrupt my free time with their silly offers, polls, etc.
I haven't visited very many blogs during the past week. I was out of town for two days and since getting home, I haven't spent much time on the computer. I hope to catch up with all of you later in the week.
I leave you with a quote to ponder:
“The future lies before you, like paths of pure white snow. Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.” ~ Source Unknown ~
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
