Marshmallow World

The first real snowfall of the year is always enchanting and beautiful.  Last night it started snowing and it still is as I write this at 3:30 p.m.
The south forty is particularly beautiful, causing secret, quiet places in the hushed whiteness.
A snow ball dog.  After he's been out in the snow for a while he has snowballs hanging all over his tummy, it's very humiliating to him.

St. Francis of Assisi wears a snow shawl.
Soon winter will get old and tiresome but today every thing's white and clean and looking like a fairy tale.

All that snow creates a world of beauty. I think that each tree looks like fine lace.

So nice and pretty! We got a little snow, but mainly wind and very very cold. More expected tomorrow. Some folks were grumbling but I like it. I came home and curled up on the sofa with a new Christmas magazine. Kit
