Nothing like a Snow Day to force some "rest" upon us. However, we did venture out and enjoy it for about 2 hours, despite temps below 20 degrees... something most of us Missourians do not really enjoy.
A walk in the woods behind our new abode was for sure in order. There's so much underbrush it's nearly impossible to see and explore it during the other seasons, so we had a little adventure.
“A cold wind was blowing from the north, and it made
the trees rustle like living things.”
Above us, below us, all around us... was the wind and the snow...
I dare say, it made my daughter very happy (even though without her, I most likely would have NOT ventured out today).
“The snow was endless, a heavy blanket on the outdoors; it had a way about it. A beauty. But I knew that, like many things,
beauty could be deceiving.”
The details of the woods really stood out. There were things that normally go unnoticed when we are near these areas that stood out clearly. One leaf still hanging on, a berry that hasn't completely faded, and steps leading to nowhere... at one time a deer stand or perhaps a treehouse? One can only guess...
By the time we were wrapping up, the fire I lit had taken off... and it was time to get warm, before we took off for more adventures in our Winter Wonderland. No Snow Day goes wasted, does it?
