Today's blessings:

     t'DoL in my dreams this morning, which got the day off to a wonderful start. I slept right up to the alarm, which hasn't happened in months--no wonder I didn't want to wake up! ;)

     A simply gorgeous walk to the bus stop this morning, with the snow coming down in buckets, sticking all over my face and hair and glittering like shattered crystals--ah, how I've missed its beauty! Too bad it was too dark for photos--my boss was lamenting the same with her sight of white snow on crimson maple leaves. It really was sticking everywhere! And nearly the entire workday was a surreal treat with the snow coming down until nearly 3 pm. Like taking a leap forward to January in the middle of October!

     Finally got rolling on my 700th post celebration picture this evening. Seeing as this is post 686, I am getting a little pressed for time...sure feels great to have that project kicked off!

Wow, it sounds like it was a really lovely day! I really enjoy hearing your wonder at the snow. It makes me feel like I'm missing out by living where I do (not that I would trade it at all, knowing how I do in such cold weather!).

To each their own--I could never stand to live in a place without snow and 'real' winter! =)

But then, you've got kangaroos and cockatoos, so I'm the one missing out there!

What a lovely dream. Do you remember the details of the dream?

The snow sounds so beautiful. So glad you got to enjoy it.

I wrote some of them down in my personal journal, but since the dream was all mixed up with some Sharon Shinn books I've read this year, I figured it would be quite confusing to try to briefly explain to people who haven't read them.

Yesterday was quite a treat! They're talking more snow Wednesday and Thursday, but it will be mixed with rain and won't stick. At least all this is helping against the drought!

Ooh, I am jealous! I hope that we get snow up here soon, but it doesn't look like it, so far.

Character dreams are always interesting for me. They are always pleasant, and always strange and abstract for some reason. :)

Well, it's all gone now, or nearly *sigh* But still incredible to have snow so early in October--definitely a day for the record books. Personally, I much prefer early snow to those winters that stay ugly and brown almost to New Year's. Hope you get some soon!

My character dreams are nearly always set in 'my own time' rather than the time in my books. This one was different, because it was set in somebody else's book! =)

Good to hear you had such a great day, hun! I'm with silvanime on the cold-front, but I'm glad you enjoy it so and live somewhere where you get such temperatures (and sights!). ^-^

May you find many more days like this in the coming season!

It was marvellous, though I won't mind it warming up a little this weekend so I can clear out dead flowers and take down the cat enclosure--always more enjoyable when I can move my fingers!
