Cute little footprints on the front step

Winter is coming and I can’t wait. You might think I’m silly and yeah, I’m probably rushing things, but I can’t help it. I love the snow. I love the cozy-at-home-ness of the days. I love the warm cookies and hot cocoa. I love stepping out on a cold still dusky morning to find treasures like this…

A whole story written out on my front steps.

    That is one thing I miss from growing up in Ohio, but last year it snowed quite a bit in our part of Georgia. I have to admit, though, I still am in shock that we are now in November with holiday cleaning needing to be done!

    I love snow! Too bad we live in southern AZ and never get any, at least not any that'll stick. Though we do enjoy tracking little birdie footprints in the sand. I think this year we are going to take a day trip up north to play in the snow.

    I always find it amazing how many different tracks on there…Life goes on outside and most of the time; we don't even see it.

    Nope. The snow is for the birds. Cold, wet & messy. ;D No snow in Brissie, not even in the deadest of dead winters.

    Yes, it has gone by fast, but I would think faster for me than you, with your no-buy year and all. Just 59 more days to go and then what will Diane do…? (Inquiring minds what to know.)

    We ARE sisters! It always cheers my heart to see the bird prints in the snow. I usually have a variety of feeders and a large variety of visitors. I've even had occasion for chickadees to land on me when I've stood outside to watch them. I also have a particular call to let them know the feeders are refilled. They actually hurry to the yard when I do that whistle.

    So, Diane, in case you haven't been to my blog lately, you were one of the winners! Yay! I'm so glad. I'll be mailing it out this week.

    linda.. funny you should ask! i was just thinking about this. at the beginning of the year i would have thought i'd go hog wild and buy up a whole buncha things that i'd wanted all year. but now, i think i'll buy stuff (definitely, lol) but the "thrill is gone" -for the most part anyway;-) my outlook on shopping has mellowed considerably. and that's a good thing!

    oh kristine, as if there was any doubt! ;-}
    ooohhh, did you say i won?? how nifty! i'm popping right over!
