Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really HATE the snow ---I just hate that it makes a mess of the roads, people drive like idiots around here because they’ve never lived in really deep “Long-Term” snow as we did in Minnesota when I was little, or for the many years we lived in Oregon/Idaho where snow comes in October and stays until May.
The snow is beautiful. The air is crisp and clean, and nothing glitters more magnificently than freshly fallen snow enhanced by the clarity of a blue sky and yellow sunshine.
And as long as the roads clear and the snow just stays in the woods, on the lawns, in the fields – I’m fine with it. This snow however, will probably be gone by afternoon, so yes, I admit it – there I was in my jammies and my running shoes with my coat thrown over, going outside like a crazy woman trying to get a picture of the snow while it’s still pretty.
How’s THAT for roughing it for ya? :cD
I made it to the top of the crusty icy driveway without breaking my neck. This is why I chose the running shoes over my uggs. They have TREAD!
Don’t you agree that the only thing missing from this photo is a curl of winding smoke coming from that chimney?
From the bottom of the front steps looking up toward the top of the drive.
Off the back deck toward the creek at the back!
((I really love not having a fenced in yard…just wide open space!))
Morning sun through frosty trees!
We sat in the hot tub in the gazebo last night, watching the snow fall ---as long as it is not windy, this is bliss!
Not a stitch got sewn yesterday, and I’ve got a gazillion more things on the plate for today ----and I’m only a bit backward in my timezone thing ---last night it was 1:30am before I could close my eyes – I’m afraid I’m still on AZ time – but working on it!
I’m pretty sure that Quilt-Cam will work for tonight ---so get that project ready! I am DYING to treadle….I haven’t sat at the treadle for a long time, so it might just be some simple string piecing for me……and that’s just all this girl really needs!
Have a great Friday, everyone!
