First Snowfall in New England!

We are having our first snowfall here in New England. It is pretty to see all is now white and glistening like tiny little stars each with their own unique design. I love watching it fall but do not like to drive in it especially the first one. Everyone is not used to driving in the snow yet. Maybe after a few more of them we will get our snow legs ready to traverse it.

I would like to think that this snowfall will erase all the COVID-19 (China Virus) germs so that we will all be safe once again. But, time will tell if the cold will do anything to stop it. Bring on the vaccine. I’m ready for it and want to get back to normal whatever normal is. I have almost forgotten what it feels like.

For now I am snapping photos of the lovely whiteness and watching the birds flitter around in it trying to eat and keep warm – the poor things.

I hope wherever you live that you are staying safe and well. Take care. God Bless. Carefully watch you kids on Halloween and keep them safe too.

May you stay safe and well during this Pandemic. I pray that soon we will have a vaccine for this virus and be once again safe to get out and about. Take care!

Today is a perfect time to snuggle up with a good book, turn on the fireplace, grab a fluffy lapghan and dive in and get lost in a book. I have some suggestions – Jemsbooks for all ages.
