today, the sun came out and it is so nice outside. yesterday and the day before, the snow made the outside so very very quiet. i almost wanted to whisper when i went outside. today, with the sun, the snow has become very noisy. it’s pouring down the water spouts and forming brooks and streams in the street, yard, and gutter. it sounds merry. kinda’ like the phrase from ‘the sound of music’ - (my heart wants) to laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over stones on its way.
