What to do when one needs to catch one's breath and take a few new deep ones? Why, run away to Vermont for a few days! This is what was waiting for me...sparkling snow, dappled with critter tracks.
Have you heard winter storm Vulcan's forecast for central Vermont? Twenty plus inches of spring snow...on top of what's already on the ground. This morning I awoke to the distinctive quiet that comes with falling snow and smiled.
The wood box is filled, there are plenty of candles in the cupboard, there's soup on the stove and some hand sewing in a basket (a gift for a brand new grand-nephew named Liam)!
Check back tomorrow for pictures, unless you're sick of winter. :-)
