Enjoying the Snowy Days

Snow days are not very frequent in this part of Missouri. We have freak storms, of course, but usually we can count on maybe one snow day per winter. This winter granted us the blessing of three days last week. I thought I would give you a peek at some of our fun. (Click here for more.)

And some ideas for enjoying your own snowy days.

~ a happy wintry video
~ wonderful winter recipes
~ perfect music for fireside sitting
~ a wonderful book for your quiet hours
~ a perfect book, sure to bring back memories
~ a little chore that might make you smile
~ a game for long winter evenings
~ snowy posts to make you smile
~ wintry crafty goodness

Happy winter, dear friends.

I took all the pictures in the mosaic, except the one of Sloane and I. The other wonderful winter image is by the multi-talented Carambatack.

Aw, I love your mosaic! I try to do those sometimes, but I just don't have your knack. They never look cool like yours! Good job!

We only got ice down here in Arkansas. Enjoy your snow. It's so lovely!

Lovely pics Relyn! i'm sure little Sloane is enjoying it..

well, i guess a good book and the perfect cake recipe do the trick on winter days.
was wondering if you were making mulled wine too, sometimes ?

Have a lovely winter , my friend and keep warm...
(but don't you miss spring already?)
