And More Snow~

I positively adore that when it snows at my place…

IMG_1037

it makes everything look so Christmasy.

Like I’ve been whisked away to a ski lodge high up in the mountains.

The backyard is an untouched wonderland…

and the shed looks positively buried.

Apparently some creature has found it’s way here. Dog? Cat? Raccoon? The mailman?

We’ll never know.

Here’s hoping the white stuff stays til Christmas.

First Snow

Wahooooo! SNOW!!

IMG_0890

Not a ton, yet…but I’ll take it.

So, this house is exactly 9 minutes from my daughter’s house and she didn’t get any snow that stuck.

You know what I think?

I think my little house is magical.

Odd Little Storm

So, it’s April, and we have our green leaves and budding trees and flowers popping up all over the place and POOF!

We get this.

At first we thought that it was just a flukey little fly-by storm…

but it just kept stopping and starting, over and over…

for two days!

I kept thinking, “Oh, sure. NOW it snows.” Just when we’ve given up on any winter and started wearing flip flops.

Don’t get me wrong–our poor mountains can use the snow pack–we’ll take it. But we watched for snow. We begged for snow. We prayed for snow…3 months ago.

Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor.

Sincerely.

Just a Smidge~

…of snow this morning,

003

but ohhhh…what a happy sight it was.

True, it didn’t last too long, and it didn’t stick…

002

but we’ll take it.

Mother Nature could we have a bit more of that…please?!!

Sheesh.

Mmmm~ Winter

018

Positively my favorite weather ever.

Why, if I could just make a pot of hot chocolate, and grab a crochet hook and stay inside while the snow came down like this for a week, I’d be happy.  Mind you, I don’t have to drive in it much, and so that gives me the liberty to sit back and revel in the toasty indoors, while Jack Frost does his beautiful thing outside.

And at last, I have a new coat and fluffy warm boots this year too. That’s a first in quite a few years, I’m afraid. All the better to love the snow with…wouldn’t you say? For when I do have to go out, I mean. But for now, I’ll just sit here and look at it from my rocking chair…with my crochet hook…and a few new Christmas projects on my lap, perfectly happy to be right here, right now, this winter.
