Snow Day

It happened. The first snow of the year. In NOVEMBER?!?! 


This may not be that surprising to all of you living in more inclement climates, but we rarely get snow. I mean, it gets seriously cold, like, frosty frosty fingers cold, but never very much snow. And NEVER in November! Maybe for like, a week, in Jan or Feb... Apparently the schools have been closed for 2 days this month already, up north that is. Crazy huh?


I love the snow. I've always wanted to live somewhere (in America) where there is snow on the ground all winter. Alas, that will probably never happen, so I revel in my little patches as and when I can. 


In other news, I braved the slippery pavements to pop to the post office this morning. Sarah, your parcel is winging its way to you as we speak! 


Have I mentioned about this before? Not sure... I "met" a lovely lady called Sarah through the blogosphere, and we decided, since both of us had a passion for each others countries, to do a little swap. Just me and her, no organizer or anything, and its been seriously fun!! I won't spoil her surprise and tell you what is in this box, but let me just say, its ram-a-jam full of goodies. 

So, on this cold wintery day, my plan is to pop a casserole in the oven and sit and knit all day. Bliss. ♥♥♥

  1. It's beautiful! No snow at all here in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, so I'll just have to enjoy yours for now. And how fun to do a mini-swap! That's an excellent idea. Hmmm...

  2. Where I'm from, Rochester, NY we would get snow sometimes as early as Halloween. I've saw many a blizzard up there. One year we got almost 6 feet over night. Unfortunately, it was my daughter's 9th birthday. She wouldn't understand why we had to cancel her party. LOL

    How fun to do a private swap. That way you get to set the dates yourselves.

  3. I love the snow pictures. Here in Southern Ohio we get some snow every winter. We had a dusting just a few days ago. I'm hoping for a white Christmas this year.

    I also love the stripy paper on your parcel. Very nice.
