Winter Wonderland!

Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.  ~Pietro Aretino
Winter weather in the Midwest is so unpredictable. One day it may be snowing and 25 degrees and the next sunny and 45.
When it snows my kids get so excited. They rummage around finding snow pants, hats, and gloves that are usually mismatched. It's a race to get outside to catch snowflakes on their tongues, make snow angels, and have snowball fights. These times are priceless.
The snow covered trees are so quiet and beautiful.
Shortly after, the air warmed, snow melted, and I went out on a hike with my dog Betty.
And a river runs through it.
My husband is fishing in January and caught a few!
Some favorite things: Hiking and taking pictures.
The trees are saluting to the sun in the western sky.
Sun in January is a gift!
Smile quick - a self timer shot.
And a spectacular sunset to end the day! Thanks for reading. Kathy
