The snow came during the night. All day long, the snow came down. Today, the second day--the second day of the first now fall this year--the ground is white, the sky is grey, and movement is minimal. I have only walked the dog in it, and avoided any other outdoor adventure. Choosing to stay indoors, we've started putting up the Chrsistmas tree. Not much else to do. Well, of course, that's not true, as there is so much to do if one is creative about it. I'm thinking chocolate chip cookies would be a perfect pastime, followed by hot chocolate. A trip to the shopping internet meca is also a creative endeavor, of a sort. My mission at the present time, is sipping hot cream of wild rice soup while trying to get the internet connection to fail so we can objectively rule out the causes and once and for all fix the problem. Nothing's happening so far.
