Winter come-eth...

When I took the dog out for her morning walk yesterday this is what our sky looked like.


Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!









10 minutes later it looked like this. Doesn't that picture just say "Chicken soup......roaring fire in the fireplace.....warm toasty socks.....candy canes.....getting under a warm quilt and reading a book". The wind was blowing and there was promise of a storm headed our way. People were getting slammed with snow....which means my kids wore their PJs inside out and backwards last night. What?? You didn't know that's how you get a snow day to happen??
This morning I woke up to snow. About an 18th of an inch....but still! Snow! Now I just need to get that chicken soup started. :)


This guy came to visit me and wanted his breakfast today. Sorry the picture is blurry but they sure do move fast. I started to call them before I put food out over the summer. There is a big one that comes running as soon as I call now. It's pretty neat. My husband didn't think it was so neat though when he came home the other day and found the squirrels eating bits of pound cake. Sigh. Does the man not know that even squirrels need a little sumpin sumpin now and then??

Stay warm everyone!!

Hope everyone stays warm, the forecast for you guys looks gruesome. Shall I tell you what it is in SoCal? Actually very cold for us, in the low 40's at night with some rain...goodie!

That sky looks spooky! A definate stay inside with comfy clothes, socks and blankets! I haven't made chicken soup in too long! I need to do that.

stormy skies are so cool - we haven't had cool stormy skies since summer - it just gets an eerie whitish-grey and the snow starts ... but today the sun is shining in a clear blue sky and it is very cold outside, but lovely just the same!

Sad thing is we haven't had the snow but our sky has been grey, it's been wet and freezing cold and it's summer here!!!! Lucky squirels - have you named them yet??

Just looking at those pictures makes me want to put the heater on.

An 18th of an inch, just enough snow to look pretty for awhile and enough to melt in a jiffy. Today it was 38 degrees and I now see grass and I'm totally on board with that. :) Shivering is not my forte.
