That's right, Minnesota's first snow of the season! And it was a beautiful snow storm. We went to bed on Friday night to a brown, dead yard and woke up Saturday morning to this:
Although it was complete with a most-of-the-day-power-outage, broken tree limbs and lots of shoveling; it was a beautiful start out to winter. I just love the grey-silvery colors of winter. So sophisticated.
And with the power out on my typical-get-a-million-projects-done-Saturday; I didn't get anything done that I wanted. It made me really appreciate electricity....I mean really appreciate it. It also felt kind of good to have one day that I didn't feel like I had to get everything checked off my list. Sometimes inconveniences can be a blessing in disguise -- a reminder to slow down and enjoy things like snowstorms:
Or deer walking through your yard.
And with Thanksgiving around the corner it's good to be reminded of all the things I have to be grateful for.
What are you thankful for??
