Winter Wonderland


My morning routine is pretty set. After showering and shaving, and before I feed the cat, I try my best to enjoy my breakfast (which includes coffee) while listening to the radio.  Though they had stopped the practice for a little while, they have returned to updating the weather forecast and weather conditions.  Or so they thought.

They announced that it was actually a little rainy and that the rain would turn to ice. At 5:30 in the morning, and needing to catch the bus, this information was crucial.  I looked out the window but the glare of the streetlights clouded my view.  I also hadn’t actually drunk my coffee, so I believed the announcers.

At the appointed time, I left home, briefly thinking that my shoes would be better than my boots. My boots are pretty warm, and while waterproof, they are heavy.  If I don’t have to wear them, I usually opt for shoes.  However, thinking I had better play it safe, or perhaps still being somewhat asleep, I put on my boots–and I am extremely glad I did.

Those radio announcers had gotten it so wrong. Perhaps their studio has no windows, or perhaps they were so high up in the building that they weren’t actually getting a view.  When I walked outside, I walked into a fluffy snowy wonderland that kids and adults with a little child trapped inside them love.  If only I could have been skiing in that.


So, yesterday’s Perfect Moment is all about a wonderful winter landscape that I want to share with you.

    I am an all seasons fan. I also live a 9 iron chip away from the bike path. When it snows, the dogs and waste little time getting to the path for frolic away the time. Winter here, like where you live is often a wonderland.

    Let me try this again, checking my grammar before I hit send.
