A snow day

They said it was coming and it did!  We woke up to this a couple of days ago.
My camera was by my bedside, so I took a few pictures from my bedroom window.

I am more of a sunshiney, warm weather gal (of course, you know that) but the fresh snow is just so beautiful especially before it has been trodden by foot or wheel.
I decided to head outside before the children went to play in it so that I could grab a few shots.

5" from the storm!
Lots of people are pining for spring weather to come - colorful flowers in the garden, warm days, and sunshine.  Honestly, I feel the same way, though I know I should not complain.  It is hard not to after what seems like months of gray skies and frigid temperatures.  I don’t want to be a whiner or complainer though.  It sets such an awful tone for my home and horrible example for my children, who are quick to emulate my attitudes.  Motherhood is a heavy responsibility.  And anyway, I want to show a heart of thankfulness and gratitude because I have so much to be thankful for. 

Happy Days 😊

  1. I was quite grateful we just got the rain....I've seen enough snow this year, and it just cripples us because it's not normal here.

    It is beautiful, though.


    1. Hi Jill,
      Yes, I've noticed that you've gotten quite a bit of snow and ICE this winter. Your photos of the ice have been amazing. | so there is one good side to the weather ;-) |
      Can you believe though - it has all melted already. I'm ok with that.

  2. Very nice photos of the undisturbed snowfall. The close up reminded me of Amish laundry on the clotheslines.

    1. Thank you, Gayle, and thank you for stopping by. :-)

  3. We got another dose of snow too last week! Luckily it only stayed for a few days.

  4. I'm one of them who longs for spring and colours... but honestly since it's still only February and two months or so until I can expect some kind of spring, some snow wouldn't hurt. Just to see some variation outside!


I always look forward to reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time to leave one. :-)
