How lovely...!

Oh my! What a way to start the day! Here it is October 10th and I got to wake up to this sight! It was snowing with big fluffy flakes. Everything was getting a lovely white coating of snow. And it's the kind of snow that my honey likes because it melted away to practically nothing by the next day. No shoveling to be done. I believe it snowed about 4 inches on Saturday. And right now, as I write (because I didn't have a chance to post until now), there is snow falling again! But it's far too warm out to collect up on anything. It's melting on contact, but it's lovely to watch. I was sitting in my studio with a cup of coffee and enjoying the sight. And wouldn't you know... a friend of mine called to make sure that I was enjoying the sight. I love the snow!

This is my deck all covered in snow. As you can see, we didn't get a chance to put our chairs and tables away before the snow. We normally don't get snow until MUCH later in the year! This year is going to be interesting I think. I am really hoping that we get more snow than ice. I don't like the ICE!

I absolutely love seeing all that snow. And it is so nice to look out my studio and see this.

We spent a good part of yesterday working on adjusting the vents in the house. We both tend to like the cold upstairs in our bedroom and the warmth down on the main floor. We have those huge black vents that is in the wall and they have flappers so we have closed nearly all the flappers down in the living room and dinning room which actually pushed more air into the kitchen and studio. (Yay!) The studio, with all those old glass windows was getting a bit chilly. But now it's just right!

So this morning, I was sitting in my studio, sipping my coffee, as usual, and I saw fluffy, flakes falling down again! I just love this house and I think we may have a wonderfully snowy winter this year! What a wonderful way to begin our first winter in our new house!

To all those who love snow... enjoy. To those who do not...try to get through it. ;-)

I know what you mean. The first winter I spent in Tampa (having moved from Stuttgart) was sooooo hard for me. I missed not being able to wear a coat or slip on a new pair of boots. I'll think of you when I do it here! ;-)
