Serene Snowy Sunday...

 Good Morning Winter.  You are so beautiful and fresh and ethereal with your white fluffy snowflakes falling softly around me.  I went to bed last night with a hint of tiny little snowflakes falling but nothing really sticking.
 Throughout the night I would get up and look out my favorite window to see the progress.  It was slow and steady.  The rain soaked ground very slowly turned from muddy brown and fresh green grass to this white that does not compare to anything else on earth.  Snow has a beautiful shimmer and glisten to it.  It is pure!
I have spent years living in this wonderful slice of heaven yet dreading the snows of winter.  Having to get up very early every morning and traverse this treacherous slippery stuff is not what I enjoy.  However now I can  truly enjoy every snowflake and every inch that accumulates while I stay inside and and sip a cup of my favorite tea.  There is no place I must be and I am enjoying this winter scene.  My daffodils are smashed down from the over 12 inches of rain we have just received in 4 days and nights and now this layer of snow which is about 6 inches at this time.  It happens every year so no surprises.  Winter has been very mild this year so we are blessed to have rain and snow for our water tables and fire suppression.
Welcome Serene Snowy Sunday.  I hope you are enjoying your day sitting back and relaxing.

  3. I am shocked! This winter has been the strangest winter ever...usually at this time in March we have a foot of snow and many blizzards, flurries on a daily basis as we hold out breaths waiting for spring. Today, I am on my back porch for the first time, sitting in the 72 degree sunshine. Very strange indeed. There are flowers and the pussy willows are already blooming and big and fat and yellowy. I wonder if we will get your snow next, though, Sherry!!! Stay cozy!

  6. I love winter and snow. It's almost 80 degrees here (50 miles south of Chicago)... very unusual for this time of year!

    I see more snow on your deck now than we've seen all winter!

  8. A week ago we had snow, and today it is 68F outside, the sun is shining, and spring has arrived. What is it about the change of season that energizes?
    Enjoy the purity of the snow from your cozy home. Your view would make a lovely Christmas card. Stay warm.

  14. Goodness, say it isn't so!! I always said when I lived in Minnesota, I wouldn't mind the snow if I did not have to drive to work...So glad you got to enjoy it and sip tea!

  16. Your so lucky you don't have to go out in this stuff. I hate hauling my paint, ladders and supplies through the snow. It never fails to be the worst on days I work. LOL

  17. I'm a Colorado girl, born and raised - living in Vegas now. I must say that I know how wonderful it is to wake up to this, like you say...I don't miss the shoveling and below zero temps, though...OK, when it's 127 here I might! :-) I do miss my mountains in the summer!
