With unseasonably warm weather during late January and much this month I had begun to give up on winter and was preparing for an early spring. After last year’s snow and all the fun Kali and Kloe had romping around in it I was hoping that we’d get at least a few dustings by now.
The Golden K, at about 3100 feet elevation, is just high enough to get a few “snow days” a year. Enough to enjoy but not so much or so often that it’s a burden. Just when I had given up, it snowed off and on this past Thursday afternoon and most of the overnight hours. We woke up Friday morning to a blanket of snow that was too beautiful and inviting to pass up.
After coffee and breakfast Holly, Kali, Kloe, and I headed out to “play” in the snow. Kloe took charge of the majority of true play body surfing and “tazzing” (think Looney Tunes Tasmanian Devil) through the soft powdery snow. Kali moves slowly and methodically and seems ( I may be projecting here) to really appreciate the beauty of The Golden K when it’s freshly covered in white. As we walked around our homestead we stopped often to breath, to admire and to appreciate the artistry of mother nature. Along the way always counting our blessings for some special time with girls.
