There are some positive things to say about snow, lol.
That's what I like most - silence, purity. I like those moments you go outside, just stand still and 'blend' with the surroundings :)
Not a single snowflake here though - and I won't complain, lol

Thanks Kasy, it makes me smile when it's just me and a silent world and it's so pretty when it first comes down. There are now two or three inches of snow here but the roads are fine, I don't think it will stay long.

I agree...the silence brought by a fresh fall of snow is magical. We haven't had anything noteworthy this winter so far, but I'm not complaining about that. When it snows here you know it's really serious and coming from Siberia, which means trouble for all of us, and for our gardens.

You're right Karen - those from Siberia are nasty ones. I know them too well, lol

Hi, Sticki, what a romantic person you are...:) Again one more sleepless night? I am not friend with a snow. Only one day in a year snow is romantic issue for me and it is on Christmas Day.
We had some snow yesterday, too, roads turned slippery and I almos fell down, nothing romantic on snow at all. I am looking forward to the spring.

Lovely picture - it looks like an illustration from a very expensive fairytale book!

Interesting picture Sticki.

thanks melchi thats a lovely idea ~ now a very expensive fairytale book would be really what i would love.

i do have a very nice one that my son bought me for christmas 2011, it has notes about the stories in ~ fascinating.

Deep pink sky this morning, snow expected this afternoon. Going shopping to get some food in.

13 Feb, 2013

 

guess what - snowing here now!!!

13 Feb, 2013

 

snowing here too! but its supposed to turn to rain later?

13 Feb, 2013

 

Managed to get the shopping done before the snow came down and its still snowing now. Lasagne for dinner with apple crumble for pudding tonight. (Home made) so I know what's in it.

Sticki ,that is brill , you really are gifted .
If you have to go to work though you ought to get your sleep in , but then you wouldn't have captured this !
There is an update of Grimm's Fairy Tales by Phillip Pulman , I've been meaning to get a copy .

13 Feb, 2013

 

lasagne linda? best to make your own although its the one pub meal i really like!! apple crumble will be good too ~ ice cream, custard or creme fraiche with it?

oh, driad, you are much too kind; last night i slept better for which i am thankful, but i think i have been missing too much sleep ~ i keep forgetting things ~ could that be lack of sleep?

oh, phillip pulman on fairy tales ~ that should be good, wonder if i could get it from the library ~ thanks for that driad. sort of thing i would love to look at.

The trio of stories of the golden compass are a good read.

13 Feb, 2013

 

i have seen some of those but i couldnt get into them, which was a shame because i wanted to like them!

Isn't it special when our children buy us books? It shows that they have listened, and it also shows that they have come to appreciate us as individuals. No matter what age they are, or what the book might be, I always think it is such a mature gift.

13 Feb, 2013

 

I was really delighted when my youngest gave me the fairy story book. Its a bit special when people give you a present that is perfect but you didnt ask for it.

13 Feb, 2013

 

Definitely!
