First snow

It’s Saturday afternoon.  After checking off on my weekend chore list, I finally parked my butt in my comfy chair which I turned around to face the big living room window.  With a warm coffee mug nestled in my hands and the classic Xmas songs whispering  in the background, I entered a  transformed view of the back yard christened with first snow of the season. In the midst of getting lost in the looping Gif of falling flakes, it dawned on me that  snow has power to beautify everything, even my neighbor’s normally unsightly shed.

I hear kids yelling and wife just got home and  abruptly, I’m ding-dong back to reality.
