We had a beautiful surprise snow storm last night to bring in the new year. Woke to a winter wonderland. Now it's just past noon and as promised by the weatherman the Sun is shining and the snow is melted. except in the shadowed areas. With luck we will see the sun each day for the next week. How about you, do you just feel better when the sun shines in the winter time? We get a lot of fog and so blue sky is really appreciated.

The only time I want to see snow is on Christmas Day, sadly we didn't get a White Christmas, and I hope we are not in for a freezing January. Today was my first day back in the gym for the New Year and as expected, like all other years, the gym was packed! Come February it will have emptied out again, new years resolutions for most I guess.

I think this happens all over at the gym. I know it does at the one I go to. It's always nice to see those people who only show up early in the year, I wish I could remember their names, but they seem happy to be greeted with a smile.

There is really nothing that I love more than having the opportunity to see the sun during the winter. The reason that it feels so important for me to have the chance to see the sun during the winter is because of the fact that the days are so very young during the winter time. Us, we've had a few light snows during the course of the last couple of weeks and that has been nice. However, the thing that I think has been nicer is that we've had a fair amount of sun as well.

Hi savypat, That is what happened with us on Christmas Eve. Rain and mild temperatures had taken away all the snow but on Christmas morning we awoke to a light dusting of snow and a white Christmas. It didn't last long however and we had rain for New Year's Eve. The sun was shinning for awhile this afternoon however, and I went for a short walk. I ALWAYS feel better when the sun is shinning and the sky is blue. Blessings.

So far we have been lucky and have not gotten snow. I know it is still early in the winter yet. There was snow north and west of us. I hope this stays this way all winter. We are actually having some mild days here. I like it that way better then all that snow.
