We’ve decided to make hiking the Cowiche Canyon an annual event. We hiked it last January 1st and made a return trip today. It’s becoming very popular!

May the Lord bless you and your family in this new year of a new decade.

I might be slow, but I finally figured out why all the New Year’s Eve parties were 20s themed. May your 2020 be filled with roaring good fun and great health!

frosty shimmers glow

tips of ice knife through frigid,

Haiku Moment: remember summer

DSC_1232

winter winds blow brisk

dark skies strip warmth, steal hope, joy;

remember summer

 

hold tight, my dear ones

bundle and cocoon yourself,

summer will return

blaze of summer’s last

fling; scarlet burns in sunlight

leaves aflame with light

Haiku Moment: sixteen degrees

7C67B650-625B-4341-A3D2-AD1A8EA980CC

october? sixteen?

leaves, pumpkins, frosty fall-yes

but not freezing temps

 

dig out the hats, scarves,

mittens and gloves, heavy coats

cheers for toasty drinks

Brr, baby, it’s cold outside! Low teens in October? Frozen pumpkins, water sources, fingers, and noses. My grand thinks now it should snow and there will be icicles and sledding. It’s definitely cold enough, but clear blue skies portend otherwise.

To a week complete with an earlier tiny window of snow flurries (we saw nary a speck), come on winter, we’re bundled up tight.

How’s your weather? What’s your favorite cold weather toasty drink?
