Yesterday was just lovely! Blue skies, new snow, sparkles everywhere. New snow makes the world seem fresh again.

Some days a person has to look harder to find the beauty.

We’ve had some cold weather and some snow, but not enough to make it feel like real winter. And now the afternoon temperatures are going well above freezing so the small amount of snow will be alternating between melting and freezing. No one likes that. Sky doesn’t like temperatures below ten so last week I took her to town and she picked out a nice red and black plaid fleece coat. I think she likes it when it’s cold. Hopefully it will get cold again and she can wear it some more this winter. Luna says she doesn’t like the sticky snow. It clings to her feet and legs and makes ice between her toes. She probably should get her legs shaved like a poodle. But with the current conditions, that won’t be a problem. The birds appreciate our feeders and give us endless hours of entertainment. Who needs a tv?

Lately we have had lots of nice snow days, interspersed with bluebird skies and cold temperatures. Perfect winter weather. Today I took the girls out for their own private photo shoot in a snowstorm on a frozen lake. I think they thought it was not such a good idea and we did not stay out too long. It was pretty. I like the unfocused snowflakes and the unfocused dogs.

The holiday season was a blur of events and meals and non-stop entertainment. A week into the new year and I am beginning to feel ‘normal’ again. So far the snow in the valley is less than normal but the groomed trails are in good shape for skate skiing and classic skiing. The Loup even opened up for New Years. Here’s hoping for more snow and winter fun in the Methow.
