Let It Snow

The snow has been coming down all day. And I'm finally starting to feel just the slightest bit festive.

We bundled up, stuck Zoe in the stroller, and went for a walk around the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights. At the end of a cul-de-sac, we met a couple of golden retrievers who were more than happy to shepherd us around. One was only 9 weeks old, and a complete fluffball. Zoe received many slobbery, doggy kisses.

Now we're home, attempting to set up the tabletop, fiber optic tree. (the real tree will come in a couple of weeks - I fear fire, and don't want it too dry) The bulb is burned out, though, and Danny braved the drive to the grocery store to find a replacement.

We've also got a fire going in the dining room fireplace. Nothing like a roaring fire on a snowy night.

And once Zoe goes to bed, I'll settle in at the table and do some drawing.

I love nights like these.
