Snow and Trainers
Yesterday the snow floated through the air, as graceful as a ballet dancer performing a pirouette, transforming the world into a fairyland. It was the kind of day where you just want to fix a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, grab a book, and snuggle up on the couch with a blanket or in your bed to dream. It was the kind of day that makes you wish you had a library with a large picture window between some of the bookshelves and a big, roaring fire and a comfy chair so you could watch the world transform in snatches between chapters. It was not the kind of day that makes you want to go outside, clean off your car, and go to work: but such is life. Sadly, it was not the kind of day to go for a bike ride unless you have a mountain bike with studded tires. Even more sadly, it is no longer pristine and picture perfect but will be here for quite awhile, so I had to get on the trainer with Coach Troy tonight:-( Maybe next Christmas I will ask for those studded tires.
