First Snowfall of 2012 + Looking Out of Windows…

If ever I needed a reminder to take time out of burying my nose in a book or staring at the computer screen, last night would be it –it’s 1 in the morning as I write this!  I was so engrossed in my little tasks that it was only when I logged in to check my email that Gmail ‘told’ me that the steady patter of rain had been replaced with snow!  (I have a theme that displays appropriate backgrounds depending on the local weather forecast, nifty isn’t it?!)Gmail - SNOW!!!!Of course, I immediately pulled back the blinds screaming with joy at my beau, “It’s snowing!!  Lookie-look!!”  How much nicer would it have been had I decided to take a few moments to appreciate the beauty outdoors and seen the marvelous sight of my own accord!  Definitely a reminder for next time. 🙂

First Snowfall of the Year 2012 -- Snowed-on CarMy man took these pictures of me… they can’t boast of wonderful lighting, and they are very grainy (I used my usual camera, Canon Powershot G9!) but I like them so. Nightfall’s winter magic is so elusive –it’s quite hard to capture its essence in a photo!
