Personally, I have a love/hate relationship with winter. It can be the most beautiful time of year with the contrast between light and dark. At the same time, *s*n*o*w* is a 4 letter word! It makes the roads slippery and icey with a lot of accidents. The same day I took this picture my sister was rear-ended. Just over $4,000 damage to her vehicle. She is stiff and sore - so yes that is the hate part of winter along with the COLD weather hm mm another 4 letter word. Back to my love/hate relationship. There is nothing better than being at home with no place to go and watching the snow fall. We don't seem to have the good old fashioned blizzards like we did when I was young. Two years ago we had a good amount of snow but no real snow-bound days. I'm not sure that people could take that anymore. You know what I mean, you would have to stop running and sit still for a couple of days. Eat popcorn, drink cocoa and fix puzzles. I think it might be time for a memory moment. Before bedtime I think I'll make popcorn and cocoa.
