On Tuesday night it started “pouring snow” and by Wednesday morning the school called a Snow Day. Woo-hoo! There’s something thrilling about an unexpected day off, especially when the snow is piling up outside and everything kind of comes to a standstill. I snapped some photos around the house while the snow was falling and thought I’d share them with you today. Come on in!
We don’t use the sunroom as much on the coldest days of winter, but yesterday we cranked up the heat and settled in to enjoy the view.
My mom was here with us and said, “Your backyard looks like Narnia!”
Spring is right around the corner, so we’ll enjoy the snow while it lasts. Hot chocolate, anyone?
For Valentine’s Day, my husband Dave surprised me with this vintage strawberry jam jar:
I used to have one like it that I found at an antiques store, but last year he accidentally knocked it off the kitchen counter and broke the little green lid. He said was determined to track down another one for me. How sweet is that?
He also found two old Nancy Drew Mysteries that were missing from my childhood collection. I keep them in the playroom, so let’s head upstairs and I’ll show you…
They still make me smile every time I see them:
Dave noticed that I was missing volumes 12 and 15 and got them for me.
I can’t wait to read The Haunted Bridge and The Message in the Hollow Oak. Does anyone else collect those older editions with the yellow spines?
I love the view of the snow-covered backyard from the playroom, too. So peaceful…
Thanks for stopping by on this cold, wintry day. Anyone else enjoy a snow day this week?
