So much snow...

We had more snow today - not nearly what some parts of the country have been getting but it was very pretty.  Unfortunately, I am struggling with a terrible cold/flu with chills and aches and generally feeling lousy.  I couldn't help with the babies today - I hope they are not sick too.


I did manage to finish one project but I am not feeling well enough to write up the post tonight.

The snow was wet and heavy - the type that clings to the bushes.

The neighborhood has that "winter wonderland" look - which is fine if you can stay snug indoors.


 Our son is arriving for a quick visit on Thursday.  His girlfriend is coming along on a mini-vacation.  She is a California girl so I hope that this melts off a bit (but enough stays to give that pretty "New England Winter " look).

I drank a lot of tea - it helped a little.


Of course I would have to be confined to the hospital to keep me from taking photos - so I hope you enjoyed these.  I am going to take more medicine and try to sleep - I hope that tomorrow will be a better day.


  1. Thanks for sharing your pictures of the snow. In Ohio we are sick of snow but it truly is beautiful. Sorry you are not feeling well, hope tomorrow will be better.

  2. Diane,
    I have had several Card Fairies ask if they could send other items (I am assuming craft wise) for the family that lost their home. Would that be ok? Or do they need other items right now more? They just want to help! Thanks please email me at cricutcardfairyarmy at gmail dot com. I sure hope you feel better SOON!

  3. Hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself. Cindy

  4. Your pics are beautiful! Get well soon!

  6. Love these photo's Diane, reminds me of home in Scotland, while we swelter down here in Perth, Australia - not that I miss the cold - give me the heat anyday LOL x

    Hope you feel better soon

    Hugs xx

  10. I am sorry to hear that you are sick and hope that you are feeling better by the time you read these messages.
    Thanks for posting the beautiful photos.

  11. Diane, I am so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well, and I do wish you a speedy recovery!!!

    I also apologize that I'm a a bit late with this, but I made a couple of cards for your neighbor and the children, and I wanted to send them. If, when you're feeling up to it, you could provide me the information to get them in the mail, I would really appreciate it. Again, I don't want you however to do anything until you're feeling better. You can either leave the info on the mb if you don't still have my email address.

    Take care of yourself!!! And, by the way, the pictures of all the snow do look beautiful!

    Thanks much!!!
