A Snowy Day and Chicken Soup


Avery~ A Primitive Portrait on Early Work Mercantile

We had another snowfall yesterday. It was the "perfect snowfall"; for me at least. The big fat flakes fell from the sky and mounded on the grass, but not the streets...it was too warm to stick there. And then, after a few hours the rains came and washed most of the snow away. So we had all the "prettiness" without all the mess! :)

"Update days" ( ie, the 1st of every month for me) are usually long and take me quite awhile! Editing, cropping photos, putting watermarks on photos, writing somewhat coherent descriptions of my items, then hoping the internet cooperates so I can upload everything. So, after church, it was nice to sit and watch the snowfall while I updated my website, and online markets.
I sat by the window with my computer in my lap watching the snow fall while my husband made homemade chicken soup...from scratch! So yummy, and the house smelled wonderful!
(I'll admit it, I'm a little spoiled when it comes to not having to cook...not my favorite thing to do! But I love to eat whatever HE makes! :)

Good morning Suzanne. What a lovely day...homemade chicken soup (that hubby made for you) and snow....just perfect.

I am the same way..it literally takes me all day to do the photo editing, writing and uploads!

LOVE all your new offerings.

Wishing you a wonderful day,

Suzanne - it sounds like you had a perfect day. I love it when my hubby cooks (although he's not that great at cleaning up). Your painting and your bunny are wonderful. Have a great weekend.
