A Change of Season ~ December 3, 2016

While Checkers napped, the cold winds blew, snow began to swirl and accumulate, and Autumn gave up its last long hold to Winter. Just before Thanksgiving, Winter made it's frosty presence here in the Northeast, howling and blowing, making a mess of the roads and cancelling school for not only ours, but many of the neighboring districts. There's just something about that first, wild, crazy snow storm that gets everyone kind of excited about what's going on outdoors, despite the chaos.

I had hardly just finished raking up the leaves strewn around our yard, when the storm winds blew leaves from yards round about us back into our own yard. As the snow began to accumulate, I found the two together made for a pretty picture.
But when the winds picked up later that afternoon, howling through our trees, visibility was quite compromised, and I was glad for our safety indoors and the cozy fire crackling to keep us warm. 

Shortly after Thanksgiving, the air warmed again, melting all our snow, and bringing out some Bluebirds that I haven't seen in at least a few months! One was checking out the clay pot Dean and I made into a simple nesting spot for birds such as Sparrows and Robins. Hmmm, who knows? Maybe the Bluebird will decide that's just the perfect home for it, and will plan to move in next Spring!

No matter the season or weather, I always enjoy those times when I can capture pictures of moments of all that's going on around me, both indoors and out. ☺

I hope you're all happy and well, my friends! What's been going on in your world these days?
