POOF!! And There It Is !


SNOW   just a dusting but snow none the less . Why Friday was warm sunny  and 20C or 68  . 

Yesterday Papa and I had to pop up to town to get a few things . I really needed new winter boots as mine were old and have had it  . The weather  all started to go down hill first thing in the morning  as it rained , sleeted and rained some more the winds picked up all day and through the night and got very cold  .We woke to a dusting of snow cold blowing winds and ominous dark clouds with the odd pop of sunshine.   I think old man winter has arrived all though not officially by calendar . Our first snow fall well ok dusting of snow lol ! The birdies feeders and suet's are all filled up but not that much active this early as they are still huddled in the hedges snoozing  but later they will be feasting and flitting about to and fro .

Miggs likes to take her morning biscuit outside to eat and then well the snow is what she was happy about .

I was inside in my jammies taking photos and Miggs rolled so fast and squiggled along the ground just getting all that cold snow all over her   I guess this is her way of greeting the white stuff , silly dog !

Papa had been working long hours all this week and so today Sunday is his rest day so we are just inside enjoying the coziness of supper in the  slow cooker  the warmth of the house whilst the cold winds blow and the smell of sandalwood incense all wafting through the air slowly . YUMMY !

I have blooms as they just love the warmth and day light they get in our living room windows . This time of year my Christmas Cactus always gives such wonderful blooms  after being dormant all summer they will  bloom on and off till February now  .

Not much going on here for now all my gardens are done and put to bed for the season and we are all ready for this next season now  yes the W  word  WINTER  which is upon us already by the look and feel of things   . I don't get  into Christmas to early like I used to  so for now it is a quiet time of year, a time to just take a breath and go with the flow for us  .

                                                                                          Until next time .

It's nice to see all your blooms inside. No snow here yet, but here's to Miggs for embracing the change!

Isn't it amazing how quickly things can change. Summer one day, and winter the next! Looks like Miggs loves the snow! Your plants are so pretty! I was just telling my daughter how much I want a Christmas cactus, and a couple of African violets...and here you are with both. Wish I had as much light coming in the house as you.

Hello, I like the shot of Miggs rolling in the snow.

Have a happy day and week ahead!

You have some lovely blooms to cheer you up on this wintery Sunday. The snow isn't settling here yet but I just know it will. Time to cozy by the fire and do some crochet and read a book.

Miggs sure is enjoying her romp in the snow! Your Christmas cactus and violets are gorgeous. Wow. Loaded with blooms. We may get a dusting of snow Monday night. It's mild and drizzly here today. Have a great week ahead.

Looks like we have a bit more snow than you got. But Roxie loves it as much as Miggs does. Christmas cactus in bloom here too.

Our weather changed all of the sudden as well - But I guess it's time to think about those boots and filling the feeders. And when the weather is what it is outside, it's nice to have the lovely color on the inside and to enjoy!

Miggs looks happy!

The snow started here sometime before dawn yesterday, but only really started sticking on the ground around noon. It's still going on.

A lovely looking dog, his antics in the snow lifted my spirits and certainly made me smile.
