snow...Snow...SNOW

snow...Snow...SNOW...it's a snowy day here in Maine...winter weather arrived early this morning...schools and businesses closed... a good day to spend some time in the kitchen...homemade bread...warm chocolate chip cookies... comfort food...macaroni and cheese... a big old pot of hot chocolate...a comfy chair by the wood stove...a favorite book...
The animals here at Dog Trot Farm are snuggled in too. Emma Lou tucked nicely in her little bed against the old brick chimney...a red bulb hangs in the coop...chickens delight in a treat of warm pasta...Winslow Homer prefers to romp and play while patiently waiting for his mommy to find her snowshoes...Mommy prefers a nap...winter...like it or not it's presence has arrived....

We got snow, too. More than enough to make up for having none. Hope you had a nice and snuggly day!

Adorable pic of Homer Winslow! I think dogs enjoy playing in the snow as much, if not more than children!
Stay warm! I think our blast of frigid air is due this weekend.

We did much the same here, I'm glad winter finally arrived. I like the slowness of it but I'm not sure how I'll feel about it come March!

That snowy face is so adorable. The white winter weather started here at supper time but is supposed to turn to rain over night. It would be lovely to wake up in the morning and find it gone!

Sounds like you're all snug as a bug up there in Maine! Your little buddy looks like he is enjoying it too!!
I am feeling the need to load up on carbs as well but have been trying to avoid the calories!! Mac and cheese sounds pretty good right now!!
Hugs!

I got a snow day!!! Yippee! Once I know that hubby is safe at work...then I groove into the day. I mostly spun and finished my cross stitch. Oh, and I took advantage of the time and cleaned the bathrooms...boy did they need it!!
Tomorrow looks iffy in the morning...I'm hoping for a delay. ~grin~
Hugs,
Courtney

I too wouldn't mind if the snow never came.I just don't have the heart for it this year. We didn't get a lot but enough to plow and shovel. winslow is cute in the snow.

Lucky you. We have slush. Ice. Fog. And one annoyed bunny who hasn't had any snow to tunnel in.

Ah Little Winslow Homer, you heart stealer!
What a beautiful place you live in! Always enjoy your posts.
Stay snuggled up with W.H. and read him a story, I'm sure he would love it.

Beverly said...

What a cute little picture!! Homer would just love our little Hickory. Sadly, no snow here in PA....brutal cold, but no snow. I would like one lovely storm that lasts just a few days, but keeps us snowed in at home!!

Cuteness factor off the charts! Great photo of himself.

You've described the perfect snow day, inside with goodies and warmth. It's obvious that Winslow Homer doesn't agree. So cute I just can't stand it! Have a wonderful day.
