Ani’s advent… Christmas came early!

Dear Santa Claus, I woke to snow!

The world’s all white for me!

The garden is a wonderland

With snow on every tree!

She let me out to play a bit

But had to go to work,

I think she’d rather stay at home

But said she couldn’t shirk.

She got the car out from the snow

And headed off quite early,

“I’ll try not to be long,” she said,

“And then we’ll play, my girlie.”

The Sunday morning roads were bad,

And cars were getting stuck,

I thought she’d never make it home

And I’d be out of luck.

I sighed and watched each snowflake fall

She seemed to take all day….

But make it home she did at last,

I couldn’t wait to play!

I rolled my ball and buried it,

And made her chase and throw…

And soon she’ll put her wellies on

To wander in the snow!

We seldom get good snow like this

And snow is never boring…

So soon as she has done some stuff

We’re going out exploring!

    Enjoy the snow Ani! Dot is a Spanish dog and doesn’t like snow at all. DoesnΒ΄t like getting cold either so she has a warm coat for chilly evenings.

  13. This looks like the first “serious” snow you’ve had in a while. We got ours, though by our standards it’s a very small one. But it’s just early December, so there are plenty of winter weeks to go. A lot of places that should be getting snow are dry and hot when they should be snowy and cold. The climate is changing and FAST. So many fires out west and in the tall mountains in Utah … not only no snow, but it’s HOT. It should be icy and snowy and winter should have come. It is worrisome, but I’m glad there is snow somewhere. Including my driveway.

    The dogs are SO happy. They do love these early snows, before it gets deep.

      We don’t often getsnow at all down here and December is very early for it too. There was a fair bit falling… there are snowmen sprouting everywhere…

      Oddly though, it has been very mild here too, right up until the past few days, and apart from the odd frost. The climate seems to have shfted a lot in our lifetimes.

      Bur yes…Ani is over the moon with it. Finally exhausted after being out either with me or in the garden…with the doors open…all day. She is asleep on the sofa, snoring, but her tail is still wagging hard πŸ™‚
