A Beautiful Sight

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
On Providence Lane, snow is glistenin'

Week # 50 LIFE'S simple pleasures - winter

A lot of people all over the US got a strong dose of winter weather over this past weekend.  Mother Nature and all her furry dumped lots of snow and frigid cold, closing schools and cities in the south. They got their first look at power outages and black ice of the winter season that has just begun!

Watching the snow from inside, as I dream by the fire with a mug of hot chocolate, is the best way to enjoy winter!... a beautiful sight.

The lyrics to Winter Wonderland were written by Richard Smith with music by Felix Bernard.  It was  released in 1934 and has been recorded by over 150 musical artists.  It has a seasonal theme (winter) but it never mentions Christmas, although it is a classic song sung at Christmas time.

Maybe in our back meadow I can build a snowman... and pretend he's a friend of Cooper Brown....
I've already heard it.  Our first snowfalls, cold temperatures and holiday bustle ... and people are tired of it. We need winter so that we can appreciate spring a little more.
One kind word can warm three winter months.
- Japanese Proverb
Go check out the snow, the Eskimo way... oh no, is that politically correct???
