Good Morning Maine! First Snowfall on Mount Desert Island, 6 inches…

Words that come to mind for others when winter arrives: dreary, nuisance, gloomy, grey, long, cold, housebound

Words that come to my mind: peaceful, beautiful, bright, crisp, clean, soft, silent, cozy, soup, stew, cookies, baking

I grew up eager to play in the snow with my dad and brother. Mom would be inside making homemade Nestle’s Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies, woodburning fire roaring in the family room (they used a tray full of lighter fluid to keep that thing roaring!!). We’d go build snow forts (and help shovel if we had to) and then we’d come in when our fingers were frozen and eat cookies and drink hot chocolate. So I associate winter with warm fuzzy feelings! Besides, its the perfect reason to stay inside and bake or cook something to share with others! On the other hand, it’s a great time to go out and get some great winter photographs, especially when the sun comes out. My bio reads that my glass is always half full…
