Winter Wonderland

Finally we got some significant snow!!! I love the snow but hate getting out in it to go anywhere. I love staying at home snuggled up with a cozy blanket with the girls and animals on the bed doing school. I am also very thankful to my sweet husband that DOES brave the weather and goes out into the cold and snow to earn a living so that I can stay home with our girls. Thank you sweetie!

All though this picture could be considered morbid, I think the graveyard makes an awesome picture. It just seems to express how cold and still everything is...

Then you have someone that LOVES the cold and snow...our Siberian Husky Sigma!!! She loves playing in the snow and bounces around like a kangaroo waiting for the girls to come out and play with her.

Oddly enough, this is my lilac bush. It has old blossoms as well as new buds coming...a haven for the birds.


Dust of Snow
by Robert Frost (1923)

The way a crow

Shook down on me

The dust of snow

From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart

A change of mood

And saved some part

Of a day I had rued.
