The girls and I watched the sun come up the other day from the high school hilltop. We had gotten eight inches of snow earlier and then freezing rain. The dogs’ paws and my boots broke through the thin crust with every step, and so the going was very slow and tiring. We abandoned our usual route for the morning, and instead just enjoyed sitting and watching the world awaken.

It was cold, quiet, and peaceful. A great time to reflect on the year almost done, and the approaching bustle of Christmas week. Even the dogs seemed thoughtful, content to be sitting in a group rather than running in a pack.

Best wishes to all for a safe and healthy holiday week.
