Snow Days!

These pictures are a couple of years old, but it's looking a lot like this right now (though not as cold). It couldn't be better timing since the kids have midwinter break. The snow is melting fast, but another wave is beginning as I write this post. I love this time of the year because the tree frogs begin to sing and the hyacinths poke their heads out of the ground, and I always remember how it was twelve years ago, waiting for my first baby to be born. Time flies ...





Don't you love my crooked filbert? It always fascinates me how the branches curl -- this plant really comes into its full glory once the leaves fall off.

The kids are busy playing outside, I'm deep in revisionland, the progress slow and steady. A lamb stew is simmering in my crock pot. My health is incredibly good, just in time for baseball season to begin. I'm full of thanks and praise to God.

Have a beautiful day today.

ETA -- My husband just came back from work and says our hill is the only one with snow. Strange how localized the weather can be.

It sounds all cozy and warm. I can smell the lamb stew. I am, however, glad to done with the worst of the cold here in my neck of the woods.

Great pictures! Last week we had enough thawing to see the lawns, and now we have 15 inches of white stuff again. And, really, I'm glad. Deep in revisions and something warm in the crock pot -- two of my favorite things. Celebrating your good health with you!

Molly, Bish and Marcia -- more snow today! So pretty with the sun. I love crispy, cold days like this. This snow is here to stay so the kids will be out sledding and playing.

Marcia we don't get a foot of snow, but my kiddos still have fun with 2-4 inches.

Thanks Medeia ... I love the Pacific NW. It's got a bit o' everything, should you decide to visit. We also have a great regional SCBWI chapter and the annual conference is coming up in April.
