Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow......

On Friday, we lived in a 'winter wonderland' for a few hours...I visited a cousin in the hospital, who later passed away, and then drove to visit my friend, Jackie....as she, Jerry and I sat talking, visiting, the snow began to really become heavy. As I left about an hour later everything was glistening white....absolutely breath taking.....I slowly drove home through the country taking in the beauty. As I approached home our little guest house was so pretty......

Our home......

Our neighbor, Brenda, across the road emailed this picture to us and the one of the guest house.
Our grandchildren next door thoroughly enjoyed the rare snow...their snowman, Fred, lasted almost four days....
It was an ideal situation....snow one afternoon and night and the next day it was gone...but the memories are tucked away to be remembered forever.....
I hope you enjoyed a 'Happy Valentine's Day'......

Wonderful pictures, just like a story book. One thing I don't get here in Sunny Arizona (Metropolitan Area). :( It does allow us to yard sale more often though, so it's a trade off.

Glad you stopped by my blog, thanks for the comments. Be sure to stop by later today when I host a give away of the Rooster candle holder. Be sure to post a comment on that post to be entered to win.
I am sure he would look lovley in your home.

Good morning Betty! I'm so glad you visited me!
Your snow is TO DIE FOR! OMG I would be in Heaven! We are in So Cal and never get it at our house, or if we do it doesn't stick.
Your home is beautiful and your cute little guest house looks so inviting! HOW FUN!
Have a great day! Karen

Youhave certainly suffered some loss these last weeks. I hope all is well with you.

Very surprised to see snow in your neck of the woods.Nice when it does not stay around too long though as you can then enjoy it without the inconvenience.

Thanks for your good wishes but we do not celebrate Valentines day in any way.

Having a new notebook sounds wonderful but changing over and setting up computers can b e very tedius I know.

Beautiful pictures, Dear ~ Hope you two are well ~ Have missed you ~ Blessings ~

Good morning, Betty. You snow makes everything look so pretty. We had our largest snowfall of the year...6 inches on Friday and Saturday morning. We haven't had much snow this year.

Love your home. It's beautiful and that little guest house is absolutely adorable.

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for your comments on my blog.

Blessings,
Mary

Betty,
Thanks for signing up to follow my blog.

Going to take a look around here now.
(Love the snow pics, but I'm guessing most are tired of the snow around the country by now.)
