Playing Catch-Up

Hello! It's been a while since I've posted anything on my own blog, although I've posted on almost everyone elses, lol. So, I have lots of pictures to share, though it certainly doesn't include everything. But, so to spare everyone a marathon post, I'll have to make two :) And now, on with it!!

We got snow last week! And not just a few flurries like we had been having, but real accumulation! It was so lovely to see, it certainly is a treat to see the white stuff around these parts. I'm thankful I didn't have to drive in it.

These first few pictures are of the snowfall the day it occurred. I couldn't get any good pictures, but we have a family of squirrels in area that seemed to be enjoying the snow as much as I was because they were all over the place! Their dark coats really stood out against the bright white precipitation and it was an added joy to watch them scurrying and jumping from tree to tree

DH got a sweet little picture of some little footprints, I thought they were darling :)

And the fast falling snow couldn't deter some hungry little creatures from a free meal!

And what could be better than homemade pancakes on a snowy morning? Recipe to come!

And it seemed to disappear just as quickly as it came, here are a few shots from the next morning

And every now and then we have a brave critter come to call. I was quite surprised to see this guy, though! He was amusing to watch, I just wanted to scoop him up!

Nevermind the garbage bags, they're full of leaves and I have about 20 of them on the porch!

And at choir practice week before last we played a little game for prizes (we usually do this when our director has old music to get rid of, LOL) and I was the lucky gal who won these pretty-hued eggs. I have greatly enjoyed them :)

Well, I guess that's about it for this evening. I already have more to share, but it's getting late and I would like to have at least something to share next time. Hope you all have a blessed rest of the week, and may you feel His love and grace in all things.

Love and hugs,


  1. Thanks for sharing such lovely pictures sweetie.

  2. What a blessing those eggs were. With the rising food costs this is something to sing about for sure.

  3. I'm glad you enjoyed them Mrs. Denise :) Your comments make me smile.

    Oh the eggs were so good! It's been so long since I'd had *real* farm eggs, the shells are much stronger than the white eggs I buy from the store, and so tasty :) And the sweet woman who brought the eggs, she's offered me a couple of chickens now! My cup runneth over!!
