There was a dusting of snow last night, a fine sandy powder that is slippery. I swept the front and back stairs and the sidewalk. My broom trails created a pretty design. I took Lily for a walk in the 20+ degree sunshine - it was warmer than what it has been lately. I was grateful to get out a bit further than in the past few days, walking all the way to Precious Blood Cemetery. I saw another couple walking and said hello. The woman wore bright red knitted gloves. The pond was in view, frozen solid. The sunshine bounced off the snow. I was wearing sunglasses. When my fingers started to cry in pain from the cold we headed back. When we got home Lily curled up in front of the quartz heater next to the cat.
