Snow & Slice of Life

Blue early morning snow Feb 9

The original forecast for the beginning of the week was not terribly alarming…three inches of snow one evening and three inches the next day.

In the end we only had about two inches of snow.

My youngest son stopped by to enjoy some homemade chicken noodle soup, salad and cornbread. He took a quick run to a local Dollar Store and Koopa, his young blue nose pit, kept watch for him.

He’s so muscular ! It’s hard to believe that he was once this little pup, but even then the muscles were just rippling :

He’s still mostly puppy in exuberance and behavior,  but grown up a bit now to a handsome young dog. He cuddled up with me for awhile and I snuck off for the camera  while he was in a lovey-dovey mood.

I have a Pee Gee Hygrandea and in the late fall, I clip some branches and store them in the cellar to dry. I bring them up around this time each year when the ‘drearies’ hit mid-winter.  I have a few figurines here that  celebrate Valentine’s Day each year around this time :)

The forecast for the next five or so days indicates that we’ll have snow “showers” each day and are moving into some bitter temperatures for days on end. The snow that we have now will be staying on the ground and added to for awhile.

    sorry you have more snow and cold weather heading your way to stay for a bit. We might get some snow or sleet this weekend I think, I wonder if we will none so far this year although we have gotten cold weather now and then. We are having our normal winter here of 40’s some days and 50’s others – night times get chilly too in the 30’s usually. Love that Puppy

    I love your hydrangea blooms. That is such a good idea to dry them. I tried but mine didn’t dry well this year. I’ll try again this coming summer. Hang in there with the winter weather Deb.

  3. Margie Miller says:

    I’m glad that snow is yours and not mine. :)

    Hello Deb, pretty images. We have been having snow off and on too. I just love your son’s dog, what a beauty! Stay warm and safe! Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  5. Stacey says:

    It’s probably not right to say this but I’m so glad I live in a warmer climate. That just looks so cold to me. Brrr! Good to have dogs and kids to snuggle with.

    Happy Thoughts of Home on Thursday. :)

    What a good idea, saving the hydrangeas for this dreary time of year. Stay warm!

  7. I followed your instructions and did the same thing with my hydrangea blooms – they are still in my utility room but shall be coming up soon, to bring a touch of summer to these frigid days!

    We are in Connecticut so I feel your pain with the weather. It is sssssooooo cold here. Love the puppy! My pittie is considered fat but it is muscle upon muscle upon muscle. She is a love bug!

      Patty I think we are to go down to 2 degrees or worse in a day or so. It’s about 15 now but with the breeze it feels worse :)

    We haven’t even had winter here in Texas yet….weird year.

    Love the pup photots.

  11. Barb says:

    Deb, It looks colder there than here in the mts of Colorado – except we have way more snow. Inside your home, all is cozy. The pup is growing and quite handsome. Happy Valentine to you!

  12. Jane says:

    Your photos are a nice example of winter life in the cold regions. We’ve had snow off and on—nothing huge.

    You inspired me to make a roast chicken! Funny how blogs can do that. Tonight we’ll be having a feast!

    Gorgeous pictures Debra!

  14. Jemma says:

    It does look cold Deb, but I sure do like those hydrangeas! Stay cozy with that sweet family.

  15. Great shots and your boys sure do enjoy their Mom’s cooking, and that is a good thing. :-) I wish I lived closer because I’d trade you some sewing of binding for some of your delicious cooking. :-)

  16. Laura says:

    The weather just gets more extreme, right?
    That soup will warm things up!
    Thank you for being part of Thoughts of Home on Thursday!

  17. We’ve had such little snow this year, and only got sprinkling the other day, enough to give a white cast to everything. Your photos are lovely as usual.

  18. I quite agree with Miss Lily’s sentiments–I’m tired of snow and cold! Ha! I can’t complain this week though. It’s been sunny and 50 degrees for the past few days. Yay! Stay warm and have a wonderful Valentine’s weekend. :-)

  19. What a cozy and welcoming home. I adore your precious pups!

    Thank you so very much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Your presence really helped to make it very special. I hope you will return again and again.

    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentine’s Day!

  20. Grandma Kc says:

    Hope you can stay warm and dug out! Have a wonderful day tomorrow. Happy Valentine’s Day.

  21. Joyce says:

    Your photos of “winter” really capture the bitter cold. And then there’s the inside-the-house shots that contrast with the warmth you’ve built in your cozy nest!
    Koopa is the handsomest dog I’ve ever seen! Obviously devoted to his “daddy!”

    Wonderful photos of the snow and your adorable pups!

    I love this little slice of life. I don’t always have something to post, so maybe I will try doing my own slice of life.

    Thanks for Sharing Your Cup!
