First Snow

This morning we woke up to quite a sight - snow! How do the seasons sneak up on us like that? Just yesterday I went grocery shopping and heard Christmas music playing throughout the store. Wasn't it just October a few days ago? Aren't we still three weeks away from Thanksgiving? Though there's nothing like sitting by the fireplace, drinking hot chocolate and watching the snow come down outside, I am not a big fan of shoveling the snow off our driveway. This is true especially when I'm pushing the plow and it hits an uneven part of the driveway and the handle hits my stomach and catapaults me into the air like a pole-vaulter. Who knew you could get a bruised stomach shoveling your driveway!
