Little Gifts













Awoke to snow today. It wasn't alot, and I had reason to believe there wouldn't be a closing today, so we saddled up Linda's Subaru and she drove me in. Pulled into the parking lot...the big, wide, empty parking lot. I called the main number & heard the magic words that delight me even more now as an adult than as a child. We ran a couple of errands, came home to deal with clearing the driveway, and now the day is mine. Putting on fleece and settling in with a book. More recovered than not from the flu, but a day of rest is just what the doctor ordered. 

Linda took the photos at dawn;  the one above is our house taken from the botto of the driveway. The one below is the coop, taken from our front door.

Wishing you a peaceful day, snow or not!





















PS.....brownies are already baking!

Don't you love snow days and snuggling into warm pajamas?

I've a pot of Love Soup going on here...a great lovely bean soup...
while no snow falls from my neck of the woods a little is predicted.

Linda's photo's are warm and inviting...I love the blueness of them. :)

Brownies sound so decadent (sp?)! Yummy! He He He...

Enjoy your day of rest...and by the way...what are you reading?
I'm reading Wisdomkeepers by Harvey Arden and Steve Wall...it's phenominal!

I got a phone call this morning at 5:30 telling me school was cancelled. I was thrilled, but then couldn't fall back to sleep. It was a beautiful snow fall though. Great photo BTW.

I love her blue snow pictures, for I always think of snow as icy blue. What a gift you got this morning, I woke this morning about 4 am in the cold dark bedroom and couldn't figure out what woke me but then - there it was - total silence with some "white" behind the curtains... Snow, beautiful, fluffy, soft, downy snow all over my little village. I came downstairs and put the heat up to 70 - mde coffee and stood in living room looking out the windows at the white, sleeping village. AND I made the same brownies - I love this mix since I add chips, cracked up toffee, cracked old candy canes - anything I can find that will let me "make it mine" - but an afternoon of warm brownies and icy cold milk is sacred to me (LOL)... Feel better and love, absolutely love those photos!

Absolutely love the house and chicken coop.

The flu, an extra rest is perfect.

Take care of you.

Fleece + book + brownies on a snowy day = perfect

You house looks so warm and cozy, and is that really the chicken's house? I remember when you got the door, but it looks like a cottage!

Hurray a snow day! Wonderfully cozy photos of your house and the coop! Oh good grief, did you have to mention brownies, my absolute fave!?!? I think I can actually smell them baking. Get stronger and stay well!!

We've had some cooties here too, but I'm slowly getting better...glad you're on the mend.
Love the pics...we've got no snow. IN fact supposed to be almost 50 on Friday...crazy ass weather.

Ghirardelli brownies? That sounds delightfully decadent.

Can I come live in your chicken coop? What a great little dwelling.
