FIRST SNOW OF THE YEAR 2017









We didn't get much snow, not enough to measure at my house.  It is awfully cold this morning but the sun is shining and I bet the snow will melt fast.  Some of the streets are icy and they are saying do not travel until after noon time.   I plan on staying indoors until it is safe to go out and when it warms up some.  Today it is only going to be in the 20's.   I will work on my pillow cases.  Hope where you are it is warmer.

It is cold here in Montreal, Madeline, but I do love the winter so I just make sure I am well dressed for it. Love photos, thank you so much for sharing. :)

We got quite a bit more snow that you but it melted the next day..and tomorrow, it's supposed to be 74 here in Lubbock, Texas...Crazy...ha
We had a Franklin stove in our olden house and loved it...it put out so much heat...it had belonged to my mama...when we moved into son's pool house, my son in love said he would take it out and install it here. It was just too much trouble and I didn't want to haul firewood and ashes any longer so I hugged him tight and said thanks, but no thanks...I miss the stove simply because my mom had used it...i like my little candles just fine. xoxo

It looks very beautiful there, Madeline!
I'm sorry the snow and cold weather have caused problems and victims in many countries recently. Here the temperatures go crazily up and down, between -27 F and 35 F.
Stay warm! Hugs!

That's about as much as we got last week. It's probably all we will get. Thanks goodness. I love to look at it though. I love your collection of snowmen. You have them displayed so nice! Your house is always festive! Thanks for sharing and thanks for coming over and visiting. I was sick last week so just now getting to visiting.
Hope you have a great week!

Thank you bj. Other people have told me they last quite a long time so use them . I have some I have used for quite a few years.

Jedidja said...

Is there still snow now in your area?

Madeline's Album said...

No Jedidja there is no more snow. In fact we have been having spring like weather but it is supposed to turn cold again today. We have been having rain which we need.

Grantham Lynn said...

Dear Madeline
Your dusting of snow looks so pretty through the garden!
I wouldn't venture out on the roads either - ice is so dangerous.
So long as you're warm and cosy and have enough food - home is the best place!
Thank you for popping in to say hello, I always love seeing your name pop up dear Mandy!
Love
Shane x
