Winter Wonderland


I woke up early this morning, at six o'clock. It was still dark outside, and I felt like it was a lot earlier then my clock told me. I reached over to the ground, where my books were. Picking one up, and I started to get to work.

I finally finished what I'd woken up early for--to get a head start on some of my work--and I slipped out of bed to get dressed.

And...

I glanced out the window.

Snow flew down in little white flurries, like white fairies dancing down to the ground. I grinned rather broadly, almost not believing it. Snow! On October 4th! Excitement raced through my veins. I loved snow so much. Everything always looked so clean and pure and cleansed. I've always loved snow because of that reason.

I couldn't believe it was actually snowing! I grabbed a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt and quickly got dressed. I ran up the stairs and threw on my winter clothes. I felt like I'd been doing this for months already as I plopped on my hat, pulled my hood over my head, wrapped a scarf around my neck, put on my coat, a pair of rubberboots, and my gloves and headed out the door into the wetness.

I walked down the path towards the barn, leaning down and, with my gloved hands, picking up a small pile of snow. My tongue came out as I licked the cold flakes. I smiled, letting the rest of the snow fall. I'd tasted the first snow of the season.

As I came back from the barn, the snow was flying harder, hitting my eyes. But I didn't mind. I couldn't help but smile as I mounted the porch and pushed open the door into the house, thoughts of beautiful snow in my head.

I love snow. Do you?

Part of this was fictional. Just a part. Most of it was real. Like I didn't quite run up the stairs. I mean, come on. I had to do my hair and stuff, right? ;) And I was walking, because I was carrying armload of pretty heavy books. Otherwise, mostly true. :)
