Snow Day

The view from the front porch is a lonely one today. Not many cars or people are out and about on our street at all.

I know a lot of people in our area are really excited about the snow but I am not a big fan of frozen droplets of water. Sure, it is fun to look at and play in for a bit but then you have to get back to work. And when it is 30 degrees outside, I cannot heat up my studio at all. So I am dragging things to work on inside the house, but I need to be cutting and filing and sanding metal and that is not something I want to do in the house.
But I do enjoy all the shapes in the garden as they get covered in snow. This bird feeder looks especially funky.

Last, but not least, it is the perfect day for soup. French Onion soup with smoked cheddar melts with marinated mushrooms.
And I am making more coffee. Because you can never have enough coffee on days like today.

I did buy a gigantic, ankle length white fake fur coat at a fund raising auction a couple of weeks ago. Maybe we will walk to the bar tonight and I will put on the my snowman coat to keep me nice and warm.


  1. It's cold here! It is supposed to get down to 16 tonight! Luckily, we don't have to go anywhere today so I am cranking the heat and making even more soup!
