We had a surprise white Christmas this year. Though the weather forecasters predicted rain, we were instead treated to a fine, light snow on Christmas Day. It made for some slick spots on roads and contributed to a few accidents, but all in all we were lucky. The snow sparkled prettily, but didn't bring any festivities to a screeching halt.
Indy is pictured above wearing his warm sweater, a hand me down from the very first Schnauzer I ever owned. I don't dress Indy to make him look adorable (even though, of course, he is). Since he's an older gentleman now, the sweater helps keep his joints from getting stiff in the cold. In fact, just after I took this photo, a blast of icy wind blew snow in his face, so he ran for the door at the speed of light with his legs slipping and sliding every which way. But now he's warm and dry, cozied up by my feet as I type these words.
The snow is still falling and makes me shiver to watch it. Ahhh, winter. I think it's time to snuggle under a warm blanket with a cup of hot cocoa and good book. Lucky me, I got several new ones for Christmas!
May this find you enjoying similar comforts!
