It isn’t exactly the first day of snow this year. We’ve had a few dustings. But it is the first day I have had to go out and shovel the walk. Winter is finally here. Almost a full month later than last year.
I expect lots of early morning winter exercise ahead. I’m looking forward to it. Shovelling the walk in front of your house is the traditional way Canadians meet their neighbours. Everyone says hello and has a comment about the weather. Our shared experience.
And of course the other good news is that I will not have to bother about the garden again now until the Spring.
