Houston, We Have. . . . Snow.

Well it's about time! Sheesh! The month is almost over.

But first we have a WIP pic of the first sleeve of the lace cover up. I will probably finish it tonight since I'm well into the cap shaping. Woo Hoo!

When we woke up this morning, the sun was shining on our first real coat of snow for the season. We got about 6 inches at the Parkarosa. The sky was dark and cloudy behind the sunny trees. It's so pretty when that happens I had to take a couple pictures so I could share. The view north of the house.

The view west, down our driveway. Some blue sky in the distance. Yes, that's our trash can at the end. It was garbage pick up day this morning. I swear, it was well off the road. This is just before the snow plow came by. After the plow went by, the can was lying on it's side, in the middle of the road (sigh).

Morgans response to the snow. "Cover me up. I'll see you in the spring."

Tommy couldn't stop looking at it. He must have sat in that chair for at least an hour, just staring out the window. You'd think he's never seen snow before. I distinctly remember having some last year Tommy.

Heard from daughter Ruth this afternoon. Seems she and her two room mates have caught a case of ringworm ---- from Lindamon. Oh boy! And we just had her here for a week. You know, I'd like to have a dull moment just once. Me and the fur kids aren't showing any signs yet. Keeping our fingers crossed.


  1. fabulously gorgeous pictures!!!!

  2. Your snow is so pretty - but glad it's yours.

    Is there snow in Coeur d'Alene? Good Morning America is broadcasting from and about the resort tomorrow and snow would make it so much prettier. John, Anne, and Sydney are getting their 15 seconds of fame waving at the camera with Santa Claus. That part is already filmed.

    Actually it's more like 5 seconds of fame but I'm getting up early to drive to Mom's a watch it.
