Not Ready Yet

We had a full day of snow last weekend, and now it’s snowing again.  We’re supposed to get several inches today, but I’m just not ready yet for a snowy winter.  Maybe it’s because we recently had a fabulous ten-day vacation in the City.  Maybe it’s because I’m recovering from a cold, so I don’t have the energy to shovel or play in the snow.

it's snowingI am starting to get excited for the Christmas season, for baking, decorating and giving.  We have started our Advent calendar and bought a pretty poinsettia for a centerpiece on the kitchen table.  I love the red and green colors that decorate this time of year.

I am also looking forward to seeing the blue lights illuminating our trees outside. I love how mystical blue lights look with the glistening white snow, especially at dusk when the world rests in a blue calm.

Dave's new toy!

Apparently now he’s ready for a big storm!

I hope you are enjoying the warmth and coziness of nestling in this time of year.

  1. I just love your blog! Nice pictures and your projects are soooo cute! I’m jealous of the NY trip. It looks much more fun than San Francisco! We have relatives in Fridley, and they phoned us here is foggy northern Cal to boo-hoo about the snow. Happy Holidays!
