I woke the other morning to a gorgeous sunrise…
… and so much snow that I was snowed in, until I could get my road plowed anyway.
Out here in the country, high up in the mountains, we don’t get mail delivery to our homes. We need to go uptown to the post office to pick it up every day, and only between 9AM and 1PM–a rather small window of time some days. This wouldn’t be important except for the fact that I depend on Netflix for my evening’s entertainment. So I had to walk out…
…which turned out to be pretty cool because I got to see the historic old buildings in my village, once again, at a walking pace–meaning I had the time to appreciate them.
This old church was built in 1754 by the first colonizing families to arrive in Truchas:
And these old adobes were part of the original plaza, forming a solid wall around the church so that all the people of the village could close themselves in, along with all of their animals, for protection during Indian raids:
Then, Netflix securely in hand, I headed back home again to fully enjoy the peace of being snowed in, with more snow on the way, and movies for the evening.
Love to you all,
