i woke to a light dusting of snow, which was gone
by the time he and the dog got up. . .
it put me in the mood for more however and so we drove
up towards the mountains and found some.
today i noticed ::
the snow and the sky; the sky was a party all of its own today, a large heard of elk, which we watched for a good long time, dogs for Basil to play with at the base of a beautiful, snow-covered mountain, muddy dog prints in my clean car, hail, the smell of pumpkin bread baking and a waterfall, worthy of a small little hike in the cold.
