it's not officially winter here yet, but we know it's on its way...
Soon, the leaves will be gone, and a cold white blanket will cover the earth,
& the little birds will find a place to huddle & cuddle away from the howling of the wind.
I know that for many of you, winter means having to put on a sweater, but here in Eastern Canada, winter means heavy coats & boots, thick scarves & mittens, and frozen noses.
And yet, i look forward to it almost as much as i did when i was a kid, when we'd spend days outside, on our "super slider snow skates" - red, hard plastic little ski-like contraptions that would attach to our boots and make us look like drunk idiots on the snow. Like wearing Crazy Carpets on our feet.
...so much fun. :-)
