Sweet Snowfall

Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
~Bill Morgan, Jr.

It's snowing here on this winter day, and I am already to play in the snow. I love walking in a snowfall...listening to the quiet, reaching up to the beauty, hoping to catch a snowflake. 
Perhaps a bowl of tomato soup and Saltines for lunch....mmm, yummy.
oh, and a cup of hot cocoa to wash it down....
and a child of the snow, I will be!
How about you?

What are your plans today? Do you have snow?
Enjoy whatever it is you are doing...

Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories.
~From the movie An Affair to Remember

Hi Heather, love the new banner. You made me remember how I felt about snow as a child, I did love playing in it and tomato soup was the lunch of choice. The snow is gone and been replaced by rain, next snowfall I will remember what I liked about it and enjoy it.

Tomato soup, saltines and hot chocolate... Wow! That brings back memories!! (And I always added pieces of velveeta cheese to the soup...)

Lovely piece and fabulous new header!!

Oh, yeah! I too love the new banner. Very eye-catching. I am with you on being a snow baby, especially since we don't see much of it here. BUT - just heard that they are calling for a 2-day event on Mon/Tues. We shall see. We don't really have places to sled but my daughter and I love to take Rufus for a long walk. He LOVES to catch the snowballs we toss up in the air.
Today, I am at work and then once home I will be at the rearranging/redecorating project underway. Once complete we will have unencumbered places to work/play/sleep. And I can then get back to the joy of creating. Happy weekend and hopefully I will have something to share on Sunday!

How great that you start the new year on such a happy note! I love the snow, but we don't get it here near the coast..I make a point to enjoy it on a winter morning walk, where I can "visit" the blanketed peaks off in the distance! :o)

Love the new look Heather! It's so fun! It is raining cats and dogs here and very windy! I wanted to go get a walk in this morning after dropping the little ones off at school, but it is just too darn wet!
so went and had some coffee with my sweetie at our favorite coffee shop instead!

Tomato soup sounds divine. My mom used to put chuncks of pepper cheese in it and let it melt away. Yummy!

I love snow and by this point in the year we usually have a little...But all November and December we have had rain and fog...It really bothers me...No Snow!
