Though there was no frost on my window pane—I was bewitched by the way it had settled on the trees outside my window. It was very quieting, the way a fresh blanket of snow inevitably silences the world underneath it. Unfortunately there is no fresh snow, just frost—but it is beautiful just the same.

That reminds me - this last week I saw the most gorgous sight I've seen in a long time. Its been really cold here...and we'd just gotten back from Michigan so I had to wash the car (road salt!). Anyway, I guess it was still a little wet when we went to bed becasue in the morning I went out...and the MOST beautiful frost had descended on it. It was almost 3d - like little palm leaves reaching out at angles from the car. I actually made the kids come out in their stocking feet to see it (they had a snow day) before I left for the day.
