First accumulated snowfall

| canada

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.
