Snow Dontcha Know?

And here you have it - the top and the bottom of our house in today's snowstorm.  The picture on the left is our front gate this morning, and the picture on the right is our deck off of the third floor this morning.  Since these pictures were taken, we've gotten about half again as much of snow!

I know that this is wreaking havoc with a lot of lives, but I have to say that I am LOVING this!  I have been very disappointed in the past couple of winters, which have been very wimpy. 

As far as I'm concerned, if I have to put up with unbearable summers, and those who love them, I should be rewarded with a true winter.  This year - at least so far - I'm feeling fully justified. 

It helps that I walk most places, and don't need to drive anywhere, and that I'm not working today.  Yeah, I realize that, and know that I'm lucky.  So sue me.

The down side of this will be any ice that appears, as ice is my personal nemesis.  However, as Mrs. Santa brought me Yak Traks for Christmas, I may be able to function in a manner close to normal this year ...

So, you may ask, how have I been spending this snowy day?  Well, it started out well, with The Tim fixing chocolate chip muffins and a pot of tea for breakfast this morning.  I am doing laundry, working on some sewing projects, and enjoying a glass (or six) of wine.  Ahhh ...

I also photographed and entered a bit of my stash into Ravelry.  After I sign off here, I will probably spend some time knitting.  The Tim is fixing homemade pizza for dinner (his is amazing!), so you will hear no complaints from me today. 

Snow.  Wine.  Sewing.  Knitting.  Pizza.  Cats.  Cuddling.  Movies.  Saturday.

Now this is what Willis was talkin' about!

What a day! It sounds amazing! And homemade pizza?! It just made me hungry again- I just ate dinner! Take care!

You really got hit hard, with the snow! Very pretty shot of your gate.
T cleared the cars and driveway before he had to go to work, so no one made me brekkie. On the other hand, he did get me Starbuck's so I could make it thru the day. :-)

Are you getting more on Tuesday too?

Good for you Bridget! Chocolate chip muffins with tea, homemade pizza, wine (yea, I think 6 is good!) sounds like the perfect snow day celebration.

Much as I love you, I will disagree on the winter. We are scheduled for another 5-7" inches of snow. This may be enough to allow my dogs to walk over the fence and roam the whole county!

Hope you had a fun and restful day.

Aw man, I want snow! See, our past 2 winters have been great for snow, but this year? Hardly a sprinkle. ...sucks...

Your Saturday ROCKED, lucky you!

We never get snow down here in south Georgia. I'm jealous (but not too much). Having the day off when it snows is so great. I'm glad your was good.
