An Invitation I Couldn't Refuse..and I'm glad I didn't

Western Washington has been covered with snow up to 15 inches deep the last couple of days.  Everywhere, it seems, but here. We looked forward to the promised 6 to 9 inches, and were unusually disappointed in yesterday's consistent sun!
Last night the weatherman promised 'at least' 2 inches.  We received no more than a dusting.  The scene we awoke to resembled cloud dandruff rather than the beauteous, softly falling flakes we'd been hoping for.                                             
As the day wore on, we saw more snow, finally some heavy and pretty to watch, but it wasn't accumulating...until it started to get dark and the temperatures fell.  Prince CuddleBunny had been yearning for a snowball fight all day, his siblings were fighting or recovering from a virus, so I was invited to join him.  I started some bread rising, mixed up meatloaves, and layered on some warm clothes.  

Our dog, Rosie, joined in for awhile, snowplowing through the yard, but gave up and retreated to the warm house before we were ready to go in.  Her loss.  :-)

It's a sorry snow angel, when grass shows through!

Throwing snow
A welcoming place to return to


  1. I haven't been in a snowball fight in ages. I think WD's a little afraid I'd tackle him and dump him in a drift. Looks like you had a blast!

  2. Unfortunately, it wasn't very good snowball snow, but we had fun anyway.

  3. Fun whether the snow is packable or not. Look like nice light snow perfect for skiing and making snow angels. Rosie was energized!

    These are the first pictures I've seen of your beautiful house. I love the design, and especially the front door and the porch.

  4. Thank you, Cotehele!

    Rosie liked snowplowing and running, but didn't like to be around when we were throwing snow. That's when she headed for the house.

  5. You are such a sweet mama and your home really looks warm and lovely!
