It's beginning to look a lot like...

Halloween? Are you sure? Not Christmas? Or even Thanksgiving?
You're telling me we've got eighteen inches of snow on the ground and it's only a day before Halloween?

Good grief! I suppose the predictions for a long, cold, snowy winter may be more than idle chatter. The season is certainly starting off with gusto!

We spent almost all day yesterday clearing away snow. It was pretty warm outside so neither of us minded doing it. Honestly, it was a lot of fun.

I even made a snow angel, laughing at the sky as I flapped my arms. All right, so I didn't plan on making a snow angel. Not exactly, anyway. All right--not at all. No plan. I fell into the snow and decided I might as well flap since I was already down. Flapping? That was the easy part. Getting up in snow up to my knees? Not so easy. Still, it was all fun.

Thought I'd share the fun with you.

The scarecrow isn't sure what all the white stuff is. He just knows he doesn't like it. His behind feels stuck to the table he's perched on. We're not telling him the truth: his behind is frozen to the table. Shh!

The birds aren't happy. They're thirsty and wondering who the let the crazy flapping lady loose.

Mary has never seen snow before. She's usually tucked safely in the barn before the first flake flies.

The little tree is wondering where its colored holiday lights are. Aren't they supposed to be on my branches before it snows? Honestly! Such incompetence!

The oak tree doesn't give a hoot. drops its leaves on anything.

The frost is on the pumpkin? You think?

You don't mind if I say, I'm so glad it's YOU and not ME... right?

I'm so not ready for the white stuff. Oy.

You guys got snow, it's so unfair. Wow, look at all that snow. I enjoyed seeing your snowy pictures and I can't wait for ours to come.

Have a good Thursday.
