First accumulated snowfall

When I opened the door this morning to freezing rain and accumulated snowfall on the ground, I nearly turned around and walked back in. W- gave me a big warm hug, which is good because sometimes I have very few other reasons to put up with this weather.

The subway was packed packed packed, and I left my lunch bag on the eastbound train. =(

Time to dust off the parkas and bring out the toques. Winter is here.

Not everything is gloomy. I'm looking forward to toasting my toes near the fireplace and warming my lap with, well, a computer. ;) It's time to bake lasagna and make hearty soups, time to fill the house with the comforting aroma of chocolate chip cookies when J- is out and peanut butter cookies when she's in. I'm looking forward to tobogganing down the slopes of High Park, too. I guess that'll be my winter sport—that, and enjoying hot chocolate!

I still think the Philippines does Christmas better, but at least winter gets a little bit easier to manage each year...

I really want to work out this working from home bit.
