I Sure Hope You Like The Colour WHITE!!!








Okay...so up to here...and the next one.... was the cottage on Saturday...

There must have also been some freezing rain, as a lot of stuff had a coating of ice on it...

Now...prepare yourself, for what it looks like here at home... 






boyfriend with the snowplow!


Well...I did warn you! hahaha!

Why am I laughing???

Hope you are all having a great day...

Right now the sun is shining very brightly...guess I should have waited to take some pictures...

Oh well....still white!! Just brighter!!

Enjoy your day...

Are you snowed in???

Huddled by the fire???

We are under an extreme cold alert....brrrrr...

Enjoy your evening...

Cheers!  :o)

  2. How long does it take to drive to the cottage?

    Frosty took a dump here too, but not enough to wake the snowblower.

    1. About 75 minutes Ivy....nice and close!
      Not as much snow there?

    2. I think snow amount is relative. Some thing a foot is a big dump.
      Those of us living in snowbelts, well, that's just called winter.

      Happy Tuesday. Hope you're eating something yummy today.

      That is our cottage on Lake Erie...as you spend more time here, you will become very familiar with it!

  6. It sure is white, Linda. Just like here. We're getting it tonight. 25-30 cm. We got 100 cm. last week and now this! Crazy. Then the deep cold although it's none too warm here today either at -16. I'm as cozy as one can be without a fireplace of any kind. Stay warm!

    13. Maria loved Elvis and was heartbroken when he died and me offering to sing "Always on my mind" was no conciliation whatsoever . . . . I remember her waking me at 6,30am one day to tell me the news . . . :)

      Returning to Cliff . . . some of that film, "Summer Holiday" was filmed in Bristol, not far away from my parent's house. . . . .:)

    14. Never a big Elvis fan, but I do like a lot of his songs...just never went crazy over him....

  11. Hmm, not crazy about the colour white, but your photos are lovely anyway. I even went over to S.Common this morning, but alas, no one was there for classes, how's that for my dedication, ha, ha. Hope your driving weather will be clear for Thursday. Have a good week and take care...

    2. Love the way you're such a Devon loyalist and so am I, of course. But no, no, it was Wendy, the instructor and me, nobody else, that's why there wasn't a class. :(

  13. White, yes, very white.
    Our snow didn't stick in the trees. Maybe it was blowing too hard.
    I do like a good snowstorm if I don't have to be out driving.

  14. What a beautiful white Winter Wonderland you have there, Linda. I hope the little cardinals are ok - the bird feeder is snowed under! How beautiful is the lake too with all the ice and snow. Spoke to my daughter yesterday, and they were -30 deg. Very cold indeed, you guys! x

  17. Well - the lavender-blue violet was nice. The turquoise trim on your socks was nice... but then., pfft!

    Last year a friend gave me this lovely tropical print fabric. I thought to slip cover a couch; instead I made curtains for my studio. On the gray days it has been so ice to have that lovely fabric to look at. No snow - lots of major wind today. Fireplace is going.
    Stay warm!

  19. Buckets and buckets and buckets of the stuff - yay! Only thing is the noise of the ploughs all night. I just crank up the white noise in my headphones and it usually blocks it out. Was out several times today in the beautiful sunshine - was practically blinded by all the white. Bet you can't wait to get to the sunny shores.
