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?!)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. 🙂
My 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!
