SNOW








Snow














S.N.O.W.


Four little letters when combined bring the anticipation level to a frenzy...in young and old alike! Just the THOUGHT of the soft, fluffy, white flakes falling from the sky makes an ordinary Saturday a special day, one in which you wake up at the "crack" of dawn so you can jump up, part the blinds in hopes of seeing the ground glowing with snow, already anticipating hot coffee with the last of the Peppermint Mocha creamer, Sister Shuberts Orange Rolls (purchased for the snow holiday).....sitting on the sofa with a nice fire, all the blinds opened, watching the snow fall.......and knitting.


The weather man started talking about it 3 days ago.. 3 DAYS ago....SURELY to goodness THIS is serious.....SURELY this is a sign that snow is DEFINITELY going to happen!! 4 inches possible......could be as much as 6....could be 1 inch.....you know how weathermen are......wishy washy on the best of days!!


Despite the poor showing of snow......the fun of watching the white goodness falling from the sky, however brief brought a feeling of joy!!!! Wish it had been more!!!




























Bella enjoyed the snow from afar....or more like she enjoyed the show the birds put on while fighting over the birdfeeders!! LOL!!








Titania and Fire On The Mountain, purchased last year to make the Chevron Scarf that everyone was making last year in Farmhouse and Watermelon Tourmaline...which I absolutely LOVE....but for some reason went with these colors...hope it looks good!!


I completely forgot about this project until Tonni showed us the one she is working on when we all met for the Spin In.


Woo Hoo.....I love it when I remember something I bought to knit and forgot about.....sort of like having the joy of buying it all over again!!! LOL!!!




One Last Shot before I go.....it may be the last snow we see for another 6 or 7 years!!!!!

Ahh....however brief.....there is nothing like Snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh gosh Darlene the snow is beautiful and so is that YARN!!!

It snowed in Brookhaven, MS where my daughter is at too! None here though. Just rain, rain, rain...

Looks like you got about as much snow as we did. My nephew enjoyed it though. This was the first snow he had ever seen.

Cindy said...

You got some great pictures. I would have stood at your kitchen window all day and watched it.

Snow? Are you sure? I must have blinked and missed it. ROTFL

I'm so envious . . . no snow here in the tropics.

Emily said...

It's beautiful! Especially on top of the bunny and the bird feeder (the Bella picture is suitable for framing)! No snow here, but the plants are all inside in the fireplace.

Titania is one of the colorways I am looking at right now (I've got 10 tabs open in my browser so that I can compare and make choices).

Great pictures! We had orange rolls today. Hard to find in our area. Lovely yarn, too

Kathy said...

LOVELY IMAGES . I never take snowfall beauty for granted. Even in March when I am so sick of winter in Chicago.

I knew we wouldn't get any snow this time because they started warning in advance that we might get snow. LOL! Beautiful pictures, and yarn.

Beautiful snow pics!!! Don't you just love it. I too know about Sister's orange rolls......yum yum & perfect for a snowy day.

tonni said...

Ooooh, can't WAIT to see how those colors knit up for the chevron scarf! I bet they will look GREAT!

SNOW! Haha, I heard all about it from an AL friend. She sent me reports from the news and pictures of a granddaughter playing in it. I see plenty of it here, but it really is pretty to watch when it's floating down and if I don't have to be anywhere out in it. Get out the Hot Chocolate. And heck, put some Coffee Brandy in while you're at it.

Can't wait to see the scarf finished!
