At 8 o’clock this morning, something soft and furry came to wake me. George was so excited, he and his damp little paws jumped into bed with me. (He’s usually not allowed on the bed).
Do you remember what it felt like as a child, to awaken to a world of white? Well, that’s how I feel this morning. It’s wicked out there, though! The snow’s been coming down since around 3 am and now is blowing sideways. The birdfeeders were filled yesterday in preparation for the big storm and we’ve already refilled them once.
And when I say we, I’m using the term loosely. I’m still in my pajamas, but my husband and George have been up since around 6 and have already taken a big walk around the property.
I’ll head out later on but for now am content to just take pictures from the windows of the manor house on the hill.
This is from the kitchen window.
The dining room window.
The living room window.
The breakfast nook window. Please try to contain your excitement. It’s just that it doesn’t snow all that much where I live, so to us this is a treat.
That’s a flock of red-winged blackbirds on the dogwood tree.
The wind is really blowing.
And from where I sit, my world looks beautiful to me.
From where I sit in the living room, I just had a cup of fresh coffee delivered to me in one of my favorite mugs. The lights of the tree my husband created for me are glowing and the pine-scented candle is lit. George is asleep at my feet and scattered around him are a half dozen of his favorite toys.
And life is pretty ok.
Hope all is well with you out there.
I’ll announce the winner of the giveaway early this evening. Until then, my friends . . .
