First Snowfall 2023

paired with a mountain survival read!

Katie Michaelson challenged me yesterday to write about a “snow day”.

The first snowfall of 2023 was this past week. I stayed inside, wrapped up in a warm blanket and reading Breathless by Amy McCulloch.

It was a tad bit ironic that as I’m reading a snowy mountain thriller, here comes the snow!

Yet it also made me think of past first snows. There were a lot I spent in the drive thru at my old job. There was the time six weeks after I was married. The snow making me feel the new season, making me happy.

Snow draped landscapes are beautiful. They’re always reminding me of a blank page. A page that could have anything written on it.

*and in case you were wondering, I gave the book a 3/5.



Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
