Snow ~ Snow ~ Snow

Happy Saturday Friends,
I'm home today snug as a bug in a rug.
cause its mighty cold out.
We had a couple of snow storms here
at the cabin this week.
Not real big storms like parts of the country had,
but enough snow to make everything look pretty.
And for the Mister
to plow & sand us and his accounts.These two photos, are from my front porch.

A "snow day" is almost as much fun as when I
was young...except now I stay in doors all day
to play, decorate, bake, & catch up with friends
who are not normally home.

I like alot of my Blogger Friends keep changing,
rearranging, and decorating right up to
the last minute, like the 24th lol
I'm either adding, taking way,
changing a spot, or refreshing.
(due to the use of natural materials)
But I love it....to me its another Joy of the Season.

This year I have used all old favorites,
I can hardly believe it but, I don't think I purchased
any new decorations....not even a new ornament.
Hmmm may have to rectify that. :-)

I'm mostly done with my baking...but that too will go
right up to the end.
I find you gals have some fabulous recipes that
once I read I feel a need to try.
Thank You all for sharing your new, and old recipes with us.
My cookies, are more my families favorites than
they are Christmas Cookies...I just make lots more of them
at this time of the year.

Money for alot of us .... is tighter this year
but the rest of our Blessings are in Abundance.
I'm hoping its the same for you,
that you are all in Good Health, Good Spirits,
and EnJoying the Simple Joys of the Season.


Sending Blessings & Warm Hugs from the Cabin ~~Connie xox

Hi Connie,
Loved your snowy post. Sure looks pretty. Glad you talked to our friend. Can you imagine a new baby coming a few days after Christmas? Wow! That'll keep her busy.
We're all ready for Christmas here and then will be heading south after the New Year. With the temps this past week, that's looking good to me!
Hoping to get to your place one of these days when we're down your way.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
All the best...
Joanne
