Sundry Wonders recounts what I saw and thought along my walks with Ollie over the past week. Photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T4 (very much a beginner) or my Pixel 5 phone (if we walked in the middle of the day, or I was in a bit of a rush). I’d love to hear about and see what you experienced this week. Let me know in the comments!

First snow

We had our first snowfall last week. It started in earnest after dark, and by morning, dust covered the ground. Except for in dark places, by noon it had melted.

That’s exactly how I like my snowfalls, but it isn’t normal. Snow this time of year should stick around at least until three.

Spring returned

On Saturday, spring returned, at least in temperature. It showed up the week before, too, my sister and I sitting out on a patio without winter coats for hours.

One tree still has autumn leaves. The flowers, though, they’ve mostly left, husks dried out. A few roses remain. Mostly, though, the branches are bare and flow gently in the breeze.

Four more sleeps

Four more sleeps until Christmas vacation. I feel like a little kid. My friend and I walked to see the Christmas lights, and then she slept over on the couch. Just like the old, olden days.

But we do not have snow, and, even though I complain about it and call it names, I miss it. It doesn’t feel like the holidays without it, no matter how many light-up nativities I behold.

Let it snow

I say this and part of me shouts, Be quiet, you fool! We hate Deathflakes!”

Still I whisper, Let it snow.  Let it snow. Let it snow.
