The first BIG SNOW of the year!

It has been snowing non-stop since last night. It is incredible as to how much has come down already....and it's supposed to continue until Thursday night. WOW! We've already had a few light snows, but this one is the first BIG SNOW of the year. 

This morning after I woke up, I looked out the window and watched the snowflakes come down. I'm always amazed at how God orchestrates the weather. Although it may be a nuisance to shovel the snow or take a very slow drive in it, I can still say that snow is such a beautiful thing that God has created.

After Q's overnight shift and morning classes, he came home with a cup of raspberry hot chocolate and a chocolate muffin for us to share. It was such a delightful thing to relax inside with Q and enjoy these goodies! Then, he went off to work using the snow plow around our house and the church.

I did some cleaning, then set off to work on a sewing project. We have a niece who is going to have a birthday soon. I'm almost done with her gift. Can you guess what it will be? I will show you when it's all done.

Tomorrow may still be snowy, but I'll stay inside baking, sewing and staying warm. I don't mind staying in for a couple days at a time. It gives me a good excuse to get some additional projects done that I have put off for a while! 

"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." Psalm 51:7

Oh boy, it is so pretty but I am just not ready to see that white stuff yet.I want to get my leaves and garden beds all raked first. ;-)

I know what you mean. It came too fast here, that's for sure. We still have leaves underneath all of that snow!

That's a lot of "white stuff." You can keep it...I'm not ready for it yet. We've had a bit here and there, but haven't had anything that has stuck around.
