First Snowfall!!

"Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling, "Yoo-whoo!"...........from the song, Sleigh Ride

Well, if they are out in this, they must have to go to work this morning, 'cause its a "stay-inside by the fire" sort of day!
The first snowfall is always so pretty. You always seem to forget all the perils from the previous year....the slippin' and slidin' on ice sheets, the dirty, grungy, sludgey mud/snow that sticks to your boots and tracks through the house.
But for today, I'm going to enjoy watching the snow softly fall outside my window. And if I stick my head out, I'll enjoy the hush and quietness that comes when it blankets the ground. And enjoy the white freshness it brings to everything.

(Roscoe isn't crazy about the snow, but he has to do what he has to do......poor thing!)

(I zoomed in with my camera for this photo....I'm not as adventurous as Roscoe!)

(If you look to the right, against our neighbor's house, you can see the flakes falling.)

Watching the first snowfall, scones with butter and jam, coffee, and a nice fire....that's a perfect morning!

And does it not fill one's heart with memories of angels in the snow, tobogganing on the hill and wet mittens warming on the heat register.
Enjoy your snowfall and your scones.

This is beautiful Suzanne.

We had flurries last night. We turned on the outside light and watched. It was so pretty but it's all gone today. Usually by this time we have a pretty good snowfall. But so far, just flurries.

How pretty the snow looks! All we are getting here in Norwalk Ohio is some pretty heavy winds, and a slushy snow/rain mix! Congrats too on getting listed in the holiday directory of Early American Life! Way back before children I used to subscribe to it, maybe I wil have to start getting it again...

So lovely! I also love the quietness that comes with snow, but not the mess.
