Hi Gini: I never used to like the dark dull days but now I'm enjoying them as it makes everything cozy. I can do my knitting, counted cross stitch and quilting and not feel guilty because I'm not dusting (which is not my favorite thing) because as long as the sun is not shinning and the day is dark and cloudy and drizzling no one can see the dust. As for the snow I like as long as I can stay home and look at it. I get mad when it snows just when I'm gong to bed because I love to watch it snow. Lived in Spokane for awhile during a winter and there is a lot of snow there and we went to Idaho many times. So nice to talk with you.
