I Love Snow Days!

We went to sleep last night with snow lightly falling and high hopes that school would be delayed or closed today. At 5:30 a.m. the anticipated phone call came. Schools will be CLOSED today!!
I jumped back in bed, thrilled with the free hours which lay before me. My mind began making a list of possibilities. I briefly considered getting up and making the most of this gift of time... you know.... being PRODUCTIVE. I turned over and adjusted my pillow. The next phone call came.
It was now 9:00 and Holly was calling. I lost a few hours, but I feel refreshed. The snow is just beautiful. It looks like God painted the trees with cotton.


  1. I had to comment...I just came across your blog and love it! I love the hearts you made out of your red boiled wool coat - so pretty. I have to tell you my coat story... about 15 years ago, I bought a faux white tiger fur coat. I was so excited and LOVED it. I had to have the sleeves altered, and when I picked it up I couldn't help but wear it RIGHT AWAY! I wore it once and only once. Immediately three teenage boys started making meow sounds and laughing their heads off. I brought it home and my entire family laughed hysterically at my new coat. It still hangs in the closet and sometimes I get it out and use it as a blanket. I really need to cut it up and do something with it. White tiger hearts maybe???


  2. Beautiful photos!!!More of the white stuff is coming - down here in the valley - we have had 25" so far - usual amount is 13". Now maybe 3 feet more this weekend- Yikes!!!
