Snowy Morning...

The weatherman called for snow this evening but it looks like it arrived early! If you have been following my blog you know that I love the white stuff! I woke up this morning and noticed the extra quiet in the air and just knew that it had snowed. The flakes are still coming down. The weatherman said it has been 20 years since it snowed this early in the year.  While I love the snow I don't like driving in it, I am sooo glad it is snowing on a weekend.

I love to sit and watch the snow fall with a cup of coffee in my hands. The snow falling on the dry brittle leaves is like a whisper; I love listening to their softly spoken message. 


My sweetie decided to sleep in late, I waited as long as I could and then ran into the bedroom to share the good news with him. In honor of the event we made pumpkin pancakes and invited the GKs up to enjoy them with us. They were delish!

We do need to go buy some gas for the generator just incase the power goes off.  I don't know why but when it snows I want to go shopping....how sick!

I will be painting most of the day.  The house needs some cleaning but that's not restful...I'm planning a restful day.  I hope you have a restful day too.

Til next time...

Magical photos Willa - and I do love that hush that a good snowfall brings to the world - but it's too, too, soon.....There's something just wrong about a "White Halloween!" But the pumpkin pancakes with the GKs sounds so festive and cozy....Have fun painting....Happy Saturday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

so beautiful! I love snowy scenes, especially now that I live so far away from it! {I miss the snow}. What state are you in? --Pennsylvania?
I know that when we were in Vermont {my first 40yrs!} we had snowfalls around Oct.23-my youngest daughter's birthday, almost every year!

I found you from Brenda {Rusty Thimble}'s page. Hope you don't mind me following you! Enjoy your snowy day!{esp. with GK's!!!!} ---oh, here in Sunny Florida, I made pumpkin pancakes for my hubby this week! So yum!

Hi Victoria, thanks for stopping by for a visit. New followers are always welcomed here. I live in the beautiful Shenadoah Valley in Northern VA...about 75 miles west of DC. I hope you will stop by often.

Robin, a white halloween doesn't sound right. I think the snow will be gone by then.

Thanks for stopping by Annie.

Holy Moly!! Snow already?! Wow, it sure is pretty though. I love your white pumpkin, it looks even more lovely against the white snow.

Sorry you've not been feeling well. I hope you recover quick!

Have a warm and relaxing weekend~
