Wordful Wednesday: First Snowfall

We've had a dusting of snow already this season, but it wasn't until yesterday evening and into the night that we got our first real snowfall.
I love snowy white winters, at least until February or so, but lately it seems like we just have cold winters that are dreary and bleak. At least snow makes everything look so nice. Until you look at the slush along the roads. Still, it's prettier than a brown, empty field in January.Here's the holly tree in the backyard, the source of many gift-wrapping embellishments, and also the source of summer curses when I'm trying to plant things bare-kneed and keep getting holly leaves stuck in my skin.

We're headed to grandma's to bake cookies, so maybe I'll take some more photos of SoJo in the snow.

For more Wordful Wednesday (and more of us who can't simply post a picture without blabbing), visit 7 Clown Circus.

  4. I LOVE how clean everything looks after the first snow too. Snow is always so nice if it's not accompanied by ice, too! :)

  6. I love the snow pictures and it does make everything look pretty. I've never lived with snow so I can't imagine what it would be like. Something tells me that I would get tired of it pretty quickly. :)

  8. Your neighborhood reminds me of the one I used to live in when I was in Chicago. I do love looking at new fallen snow.

  12. After 36 years, I'm still not a fan of the cold and snow. I keep trying to tell my husband that absence makes the heart grow fonder and we should move to warmer climates for a little while, but alas, no go.... :-( lol
