A Good Winter Day

This is the view from my porch today.  The grey skies
have lifted to reveal a sparkling blanket of snow under
 a sun filled sky.  The very best kind of winter day.

Feeling the need to snuggle and rest, my daughter plans
on opening this fun gift she received for Christmas.

I plan on devouring this wonderful magazine while I help her with her stitches.

My husband will be finishing up his current read.

A good winter's day!


  1. Looks like a beautiful and amazing day. Good for all of you! We have sun but the temps are in the teens. Brrrr. Just a dusting of snow so far this year. I fear we will be hit as soon as school begins again. Oh, well. Even teachers like snow days. :) Have a wonderful afternoon. ~Kelly

  2. I'm jealous. We haven't gotten an inch yet when the rest of Michigan is getting snow like crazy!

    Lovely, lovely photos!

  3. I love the view in the picture! It looks like a nice winter day! It's always nice to have a day to just rest and snuggle in some blankets! Hope you have a nice day Renee!!

  4. Hi Renee, What a beautiful landscape for you to behold-I'm thankful you got the snow and not us for even though I love it, for some reason this year I'd like it to be light.
    I'm still getting over my cold so staying in and reading; need to start tracing a quilt pattern though but I just don't have the energy.
    Have a nice warm day inside.
    Hugs, Noreen

  5. It looks like a perfect day to settle in and enjoy a new project or decorating magazine. I have been searching for the latest Romantic Country magazine and haven't found it yet. Enjoy the day.


  6. Please enjoy a little slice of the snowy heaven for me. We are still high and dry here...smiles...Renee

  7. Oh my goodness! I can't believe all the snow! It is so beautiful. though. It was low 50's today in Dallas. A little cool but sunny.
    PS I got the new Romantic Country in the post on Saturday...One of the best issues ever!

  8. I like the sounds of your winter day :)

  9. Yes, the sun on new snow is so gorgeous--sometimes like diamonds--and it's especially wonderful when you can just stay home and do cozy, homey things!

  10. That sounds like a perfect day. You sure have a beautiful view, Renee. Such a cute crochet kit.
    I just picked up that magazine at Walmart today, but don't think I can wait til it snows to read it. LOL

  11. ooohh sounds like a lovely warm day to me. Enjoy ;-)) dee x

  12. I love it when the snow has settled and all is calm outside allowing one to enjoy such beauty.
    I think your daughter's craft project is so cute. I'm sure she will enjoy working on it.

  13. I got the crochet book for my youngest for Christmas too! She was so excited! I am hoping we learn together. She sewed all of her Christmas presents and did a marvelous job for a 7 year old. Happy New Year.
