I was hoping for some snow...

Happy New Year everyone ~ I hope yours will be full of joy and good health.

Today I took down our Christmas tree, and I was sad to see it go. I will especially miss its sparkly glow which has brightened the long dark evenings.

One of my Christmas wishes was for new cross country ski boots to replace my worn cracked ones, and of course, for some snow on which to ski.

I think it started snowing the day we bought the boots...

...and I don't think it has stopped since.
Below is what it looked like this morning...

It is the fluffiest, most beautiful snow, and this afternoon it still continues.
I think we have at least 2 feet...

Not to be picky, but if I could just have some sunshine now...please :)
{As promised, there is a small giveaway--I will try for tomorrow.}


  1. wow that is a lot of snow! It looks beautiful though!

  2. The snow here in WNY certainly is beautiful this week. A winter wonderland. Enjoy those new boots and your cross country skiing outings.

  3. Hahahaha! Be careful what you wish for. Looks like a beautiful white Christmas in your neck of the woods!

  4. Beautiful tree!!! Happy New Year!!!

  5. Oh! All of our snow has melted & I would love to see some more like you have. Just beautiful.

  6. Wow that is a lot of snow! Enjoy it while you have it.


  7. Your photos are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing these with us.

  8. Wonderful quiet snow

  9. Oh my - it really is beautiful (from my Texas vantage point!). I remember snows like that from my childhood. We had such fun!
    Hoping you get sunshine soon and lots of time to use those new boots!

  10. Beautiful shot of the tree, looks so cozy. We even got snow it Oklahoma on Christmas Eve, So rare for us and we were so happy to have it!

  11. a lovely tree, do you light your candles? I am so impressed by your snow. I really think we do have christmas at the wrong time of the year. It is hard to fit in sun, beach, family and christmas. I would love a few snowy days to have family craft days.

  12. We have sunshine and I'm starting to miss the snow! It looks really beautiful. xx

  13. Beautiful pictures! Snow has fallen all around us this year but none in our little town yet ;-(. It's so much prettier than all the dead brown everywhere, isn't it? Have fun on those skis!

  14. It doesn't snow where I live and my kids dream of seeing some snow. Your photos are beautiful, enjoy the snow and our new boots!

  15. I have been trying to get out on my skis but the wind chill has been just too much these last few days. We have had sunshine, though. I'll send some a little south;)

  16. Happy New Year Deb!
    Your farm looks so pretty all covered in a blanket of snow. The perfect spot for cross country skiing ♥

  17. Your tree is beautiful. I can understand why you were sorry to take it down.
    The pics of the snow are beautiful too. Enjoy! xx

  18. Happy new year, sooo beautiful where you live. Enjoy the snow for me xoxox Clarice

  19. OH, I love snow...wish we had some here in the Northwest!


  20. So pretty! I am envious. Our snow has become icy! Ick!

    Be safe!


  21. Hi,
    I am glad to make your acquaintance...your blog is lovely and I can't wait to explore it further. My youngest son graduated from RIT and is so very glad that he is in Seattle now where he has substituted drizzle for the snow. I kinda miss the drive from MA to Rochester and exploring the surrounding area and I surely miss the crepes from Simply Crepes...yummmm.

    I'm hoping for some sunshine for you to enjoy as it dazzles like diamonds against the snow.


  22. I know what you mean about the Christmas trees. I love the glow that lights up my home on long dark evenings... that could be the sole reason for me keeping my snowmen tree and my cardinal tree up. I just haven't found it in my heart to take them down yet!

    All your snow pictures are pretty, but I LOVE the picture of the snow on the birdhouse the best. That is a beautiful picture. You can tell it's fluffy, beautiful snow!

  23. Thats a lovely tree and some great photos of snow. All of our snow whats left of it is hard and dirty from the roads being sanded and salted.

  24. Catching up on old reading (you'll eventually find much OLDER comments!) -- you need not take the tree down before Epiphany (Jan. 6), and some of my Christmas loving friends (and me, too, on occasion) leave it up till Candlemas (Feb. 2). Love your photos!
