Yesterday, the winter weather seemed to spring upon us suddenly. The temperature had dropped dramatically, and there was that crisp, biting cold in the air that is normally associated with winter.
This morning we awoke to a sprinkling of white upon the cars and the rooftops, the grass glittering in the pale light and crunching underfoot. I am thankful that I haven't had to leave the house at my usual early hour. I noticed that my mother spent some time dispelling the frozen vapour that settled across the car, before setting out.
I'm planning to complete my Christmas shopping this afternoon, when I meet another friend in town. I can't believe we're into December already!
