Snow Day!



Well, looking out my kitchen window...
...it's a beautiful world!
....still in my pj's...no office today!



Santa Baby is doing his thing....shoveling and snow blowing our long and winding driveway...
...at 3 pm we had just under a foot...as measured with the yardstick on the table.
...still snowing!



Yes! Yes! A sight for sore eyes...
I took these snapshots at the market yesterday!
... Calla lilies are daughter Kate's favorite flower...



6 more weeks of winter...



And then we will have beautiful, glorious spring!

I am getting excited with Valentine's Day coming up on Sunday...
... and Evi's Valentine's Day Luncheon on Monday!

Guess what else Monday is?

Unbelievably, incredibly....
...Monday will be the one year anniversary of the birth of
52 FLEA!

It will be time for me to Give-Back....
...to all of you who have been so kind to me...
...stay tuned for details!

Meanwhile....I must make something warm and delicious for Santa Baby who is about to come in from the cold and snow.

...Poor guy...
...feeling just a tad guilty as I let him "play" outside all day.
...I just may have to throw in a back rub!
:)

Everyone posting these beautiful pictures of snow makes me long for home.
Enjoy it and I would be in my jammies too if I were stuck inside.

Hi Laura,

So glad you're ok. What a mess for so many people. Being an Upstate NY girl, I have many memories of big storms. I'm not exactly homesick, but it sure lots pretty in your pics.

Have fun at Evie's luncheon,

Love,

Marjorie

Here in Southern Maine and received barely a dusting of snow. The south has had more snow than us this winter...very different. Am new to your blog this week and enjoy your style!

Stay warm my dear. Hopefully the white stuff will stop tomorrow but a day at home isn't the worst thing for us is it? :) Congratulations on your upcoming 1 year anniversay as well!

Chatelaine said...

Don't you just love a snow day? We got just a dusting here. Boy, did they get it wrong! The prediction was for 5-9 inches. Mother Nature had other plans.

Love your snowy window pic.

Lisa said...

Oh happy snow day! And Happy one year! Mine is in March! I felt so lost when I started but it seems I was right there with at least half of my sweet blog buddies! I cannot wait to see what you "give-back" next! I still love all my sweet goodies I won!
Happy Valentine's Day!
Hugs, Lisa

I love snow days when I get to stay in and keep warm! Seems it keeps going right below us though and all we are getting is the cold! Did get some snow today but nothing like what you seem to have gotten! I too am yearning for spring ;)

Florence said...

Congratulations on your one year, that is so awesome. I have been thinking about you all with all that snow. Last year at Christmas we had a lot here, we had to do a lot of shoveling too. Enjoy the solitude. Florence

Lululiz said...

Oh goodness, I thought our 4 inches of snow this morning was quite something, doesn't quite compare with yours, lolol. Looks rather stunning though, the scene beyond your kitchen window.

Greet said...

Beautiful snow pictures Laura!!
And congratulations with your blog anniversary!!

Floss said...

Aw - we have a fine dusting of snow here today again - enough to cause minor chaos outside the school this morning (again). Yours looks beautiful, but your flowers are a wonderful hint of what's to come! Thanks.

Zita - Mlle Magpie said...

So you're going to have a pajama day, Laura? Well us up here in snow country, we have barely had any snow in the last six weeks - very unusual.

vomFeental said...

O yes, dear Laura, spring WILL come, and it must be glorious after this never-ending winter. Here in Germany we had also large quantities of snow.
Warm regards

After seeing the snowy photos, the flowers look that much more beautiful! Happy One Year Anniversary, Laura, with your wonderful blog!

Sara Ballstaedt said...

Love your pictures

Jacqueline said...

Dear Laura,
WOW, So many comments have gone before me !! I'm a bit late on this one but many, many congratulations on a full year of blogging.
You were definitely meant to have been a blogger. You have made so many friends and have given so much of yourself through your posts.....AND, you are nearly at 1000 followers!!!!!!!!!! I think that you should have a party when you reach 1000 !!!!
Back to the snow...what a lot you've had. We had another flurry last night, but nothing like you've had.I am definitly snowed out now and want the Spring to arrive, although I think that we have got a while to wait, like you.
I love the photograph of the table and chairs. , although I don't envy Rob's job of shovelling snow !! Mind you, I think he volunteered, knowing that there was a good chance of a back rub in it for him !! haha.
Have a lovely weekend, Laura. XXXX

June said...

Laura your world covered in white is gorgeous. Isn't it funny how our guys like to go out and play in the snow...always little boys, it's just that their toys get bigger and louder as they age.lol
Your pictures from the market brought a huge sigh from me. Just beautiful.
happy one year anniversary Monday. I've loved every post!
hugs

Nothing like a snowday to bring back childhood memories...
Did you ever imagine that in the short span of one year that you would meet so many individuals from places near and far?
