Winter Wonderland...

Wow, woke up to at least 6 inches of new snow...I had not heard a weather forecast for the last day or two so was surprised to look out and see this...also have a winter storm warning in effect until midnight...our church was canceled so we just spent the last couple of hours plowing and shoveling. We're supposed to end up with as much as 12 inches by the time it's over! It's beautiful,though, don't you think?

At least the cold temps are gone for was 26 above this morning...yesterday morning, it was -16...warmed up to about 15 above. However, the cold temps did not stop me from going to an auction yesterday--or lots of other folks. It was packed! I did get some bargains though...I'll try to post some pics once I unload the Durango.

Since I didn't have church this morning, I mixed up a batch of whole wheat bread--it's just about ready to put in the oven. I have a crockpot full of minestrone cooking...smells yummy! Fresh, warm bread and piping hot soup for lunch...what do you say, wanna come join us?


  1. It is beautiful! 12 inches is quite a bit, I think my dad is expecting some there in the mountains too. We haven't had snow here, we normally get very little.

    I hope you had a good time at the auction :)

    I'm working on some chicken soup for my bunch, but your soup and homemade bread sound much better, so yeah, I'll be right over lol! Do you think I could get down the driveway in all that snow you have?

    I hope you have a blessed day! Stay warm! :)

  2. Sharon, we did have our driveway all plowed out (although we have gotten more snow throughout the day). The township has been slow getting to our road today. Our house sits on top of a hill with a driveway that is 3/10 of a mile long. To get here, you may need 4-wheel drive--once here, you can always slide down to leave!

  3. Good Morning!
    Thanks for visiting! I had to chuckle at how your husband compares you to the ducks! Cute and funny! I am a happy girl today...woke up to SNOW...FINALLY here in NC! Will be posting pics later! Have a glorious day!
