I’m going to be wary of beautiful sunrises!! The weather system started as rain and changed to snow. I think we had 5″. It love being outside when everything is covered with snow, it’s SO peaceful and calming, as long as the wind isn’t howling and I’m all bundled up and not freezing.
No patio dining.
I love sunrises. Mornings are my favorite time of the day! I also like afternoon and sunsets and stars. I really like all the day!
It’s was a beautiful start today.
Makes one wonder what the weather has planned for us. There is snow in the forecast. Hopefully it won’t be like the blizzard that we had a few days after Thanksgiving.
I had planned on going back out this morning to get some more photos of the snow covering the trees. The snow fell so gentle and blanketed the trees, they looked like flocked Christmas trees – only much better!! We ventured out early, but the wind came up and it was more like a blizzard, so enjoy these photos from yesterday.
Native (some say invasive, but I like them!) Red Cedar
I don’t know what model this old red truck is, but it was so pretty in the snow.
It’s a beautiful autumn day, or maybe a winter day. Started snowing early this morning and has been snowing all day.
Dinner tonight won’t be on the patio.
Wylie likes to ride with his head out the window.
It was such a beautiful day Saturday and of course Wylie and I spent the day hiking.
This is what we stepped out to this morning. What happened to autumn?
A quick powerful winter storm moved thru yesterday. Started out with freezing drizzle then changed to snow along with 40 mph winds. Made for some pretty good drifts.
Please use the back door, I haven’t shoveled the front walk.
A great day to stay inside and bake some bread. This is a starter that my mother had used years ago. She gave it to a friend of hers and he has been making bread for years. After she passed away, I called him, he was still using her starter and he gave me some. I bake bread weekly and also make a wonderful chocolate cake. Makes the best pancakes too! I love the end of a loaf for French toast and also make Panzanella salad.
Oh my gosh, I am still learning how to post on my laptop, I think it is easier on the phone (Jessica!).
Today certainly hasn’t felt like autumn, the temperature is in the 90’s, the air conditioners are running again, and there is a strong south westerly wind, blowing in the smoke from the wildfires out by Pueblo, Colorado. Come back Autumn!!
Praying for the safety of the firefighters and everyone who is in the path of the fire.
