Winter Wonderland

I love snow! I love snow a lot! I love the way the air smells when winter has come. I love walking outside, feeling toasty warm in my jacket and the cold on my face as each snow flake hits it with a lazy kind of grace. I especially love listening to Christmas music as I enjoy the first real day of snow. I want to share with you what I saw today. I know many of you are dealing with typical winter weather, with tons and tons of snow. You either love it or hate it. But try and remember back to all those perfect winter days. Just the right amount of snow, you don't hate it yet, and remember how good it feels to be alive!

This was my view out of my living room window this morning. I had no idea that it was going to snow. As Luke was leaving for work and going out the door he called back, "Go look out the window!" In the distance you can see Ohira castle.

Outside our front door are some beautiful flowering bushes. I was surprised at how late they were blooming but you can still see buds forming in the left.

The empty rice fields across the street from our apartment.

Ohira Castle

Many trees still have berries and oranges on them.

The garden at the kindergarten

It's too bad this car is in the driveway. Every house has a beautiful garden. The architecture of the trees is breathtaking...then add snow...magnificent! The houses may not be pretty but who's lookin' at the houses!!!
