snowy day tea

we have a lot of snow right now
and it's a big deal
(it's hit or miss from year to year whether we'll get a big snow or not)

(bengal spice tea again)

we had 6 inches on Sunday


school has been cancelled


and more snow (they say 6 more inches??) is in the forecast for Wednesday


definitely something to smile about
:)

Poets may write about a man and his dog, but I say you've got it right - a dog and it's girl are precious!

I heard Seattle is due for an enormous record breaking amount of snow!!! That adorable dog must come in covered with mini snowballs!!!!!
My tea post is up and early!!!

Apparently I was channeling your snow into my tea post today. Of course, my thoughts when I saw these adorable photos were "where are her mittens?" This is a really FUN memory you have created today.

I guess the irony of our two posts, you with the real snow and me with a fake, is what puts the smile on my face. Happy tea today, dear friend.

In 2004 we got 6 in. of snow on jchristmas morning. First snow in recorded history I think, this far south in Texas. We were not here though, we were further north in central Tx. where they did NOT get any snow. The snow was so uncommon that most had never seen it, and one woman wrote a couple of books about it. Everyone got photos, because no one would believe it if you told them. Remembeing that makes me smile this morning. :)

LOL What a great picture of them out in snow. They both look so pleased to be there. It's snowing again here, too. But, frankly, by this time of the year, in Wisconsin, we depend on some snow for our snow industry. Me? Snow can't keep me from the studio. So, I'm off to enjoy my cuppa and play with some paint or fabric. :)Bea

They both look quite content to be out there lounging in the snow. All I can think is brrrrr! I saw on the news that Portland got a bunch and Seattle is to get more. Stay warm and cozy. And have a great rest of the week. Tammy

Looks (and sounds) like you've GOT the snow this year! Just a dusting here last week, then a thaw over the weekend and now c-c-c-cccold again.
Keep the water on the boil and stay warm!
The color RED is putting a smile on my face today!
I'm having tea in a RED stripey mug today.

What precious photos! A dog and his/her girl...can't beat that. What's making me smile is that we might get some snow tonight. Nothing much to speak about snow-wise in the Northeast of late, and I miss it.

sukipoet said...

great photos and a winter to remember for sure. i am always happy to have NO snow, but when you rarely get it it's a treat. Esp. the no school part.

Becca said...
