Snow Diamonds

When I got up this morning, the sun had turned the snow into a sheet of diamonds.  It seemed that every snowflake had been polished into a glimmering brightness.  On a day like this, it is easy to see why diamonds are often refered to as 'ice'.
Our little dog, Heidi, semed mesmerized by it all and just sat on a snowbank and stared.  Usually, she chases imaginary prey and investigates any new smells that have appeared through the night.
I have always enjoyed winter and days like this confirm my belief that this is the loveliest season. I will go outside later and take the dog for a walk but, for now, I will have to just enjoy the scenery.  I have to work on a quilt that has been sold as well as some other inside duties.  It is supposed to be just slightly below freezing today so the ice crystals will wait for me.
