A (Little) SNOW Day

IMG_8426YES, that’s what we had yesterday afternoon and overnight, amounting to — ready or not — less than an inch accumulation. Yet enough for Grenville to go around humming Jingle Bells, even if he is feeling the lingering effects of a sinus infection the past few days.

He’s been getting lots of rest and homemade chicken soup and napping on his favorite futon. Doesn’t he look cozy?

Of course, this snowfall  was nothing compared to record snowfall amounts dumped on family, friends and fellow bloggers in the northeast US and Canada by snowstorm Nemo recently.

Still, it was a beautiful sight to see the snow in all its (short-lived) beauty early today. There wasn’t even enough for a snowman or snowball fight. Temps were still below freezing when I walked around the yard before breakfast. snow shovel1Snow, rain and then freezing temps caught the plants by surprise; some had been looking ready to bloom soon.

Your poor Honey...although he does look very comfy and I know is being taken care of with all those fairies that have been hanging around your house! I only wish I could send you some of ours left from last weeks blizzard...today it is sooooo windy and bitter outside, it will re-freeze! Hmmm Tuesday, we're in for more supposedly...la~la, ho~hum...:)JP

The cardinals are so pretty, and I hope Grenville is feeling better soon. It's good you like snow - I suspect you'll get a fair amount when you move to NH :-)

What fun images. It's good that Grenville can get some rest instead of shoveling lots of snow. Love those froggies in the snow and the Cardinals are fantastic. :)

Even up here, the first or even first few snows are welcomed (by me), so you are welcome to welcome this. You're welcome.

Nice tour around your yard and lovely collages! Too bad there wasn't enough snow for Grenville to get to shovel.....

Your one eyed frog (other eye covered with snow) looks rather disenchanted with the snow.
