February seems to be the month that we get snow in the Oregon valley. We didn’t get very many days, but what we did get was fun. I love how snow makes everything look magical.
When we had mid-week snow, I was sick with a cold. So when school was canceled, it was the perfect excuse to stay home with my boy and enjoy the snow. Piglet had a playdate with his two best friends from kindergarten. It was so nice letting the boys run off and play while I rested.
This past Friday and Saturday we got our real snowfall. I went out with some friends from work, and downtown was basically deserted. I had a great evening with these ladies, where we asked each other loaded questions and got to know one another better. On Saturday, with my cold finally gone, I ventured out with my boys and really enjoyed the magic of snow.
A friend of mine has some property just outside of town, and he let us go up there and play in the snow. We sledded down the hill and threw snowballs at each other. Playing on that property made me wish we could afford to move to the country. I love our little house and our neighborhood friends, but sometimes I wish we had a little more nature right outside our door.
At home, our chickens thought the snow was pretty weird. Scamper is going through a molt right now, so she’s so ugly she’s cute.
Do you get snow in the winter? Do you love it? I’m sure my East coast readers are rolling their eyes at our small amount of snow!
