Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Look what we got!!! Snow.



















This snow is coming down in big wet flakes which stick to the brush across the road. The snow just got going good like someone shook the "snow globe" in which we live, when the lumber yard delivered the shingles and wood to repair the front porch.! Hummmm.

This snow won't last. That snow is about a month away. The temperature is going to rise until it is 7C on Tuesday, with rain. Between now and them I may get the porch roof done. . . . touch wood!



















Looking across the side 20 acre pasture toward the river, we are socked in with low snow cloud cover.























My lilac bush settling in for a long Winter. I already yearn for the Spring Lilac blooms already.


















Down in the yard. I have been working on improvements to my shed. The wheel barrow in the yard is full of pig manure. Dave spent yesterday flipping the droppings into the barrow with a shovel. The pigs have been wandering around carefreely dropping wherever. Between efforts Dave sits on his walker and surveys the scene, and I think he enjoys the animals. I hope we might get a horse which I know he would enjoy. Posted by Picasa

I'm with Peggy--I do want snow. I love it, and we have had precious little snow the last couple of winters.
Maybe this winter--if you can send some our way.

The snow looks very pretty in your pictures, and I enjoy looking at it, but I don't want it!

It's hard for me to imagine so much snow so early in the year! I can't remember if we even got any last year; I don't really think so. I would like to wake up in my new house this winter and look out to fresh fallen snow! That would be great!

Brrrrrrr. But it's so peaceful looking. I know how snow makes everything quiet, and you can hear twigs snap, and crows echoing a half mile away. Beautiful. Thanx for sharing.

Philip,

We did get a fine snow pretty much all day on Thursday, but it melted as soon as it hit. Today we are getting a drizzle of rain.

Great photos! I'm hoping the snow holds off a little longer in our neck of the woods. When snow if fresh, it's so pretty and then by the end of the day, it is dirty with pollutants. I imagine your snow stays much cleaner than ours.

Good luck getting the roof done.

Blessings,
mary

Oh my goodness! You have snow! Lots of it, looks like. All that wood chopping will now pay off.

Philip,

The snow pics are beautiful - I wish that we had snow like that down south. One day, I would like to build a decent snowman.

I hope that your toe (foot is better), you should be careful.

Sophia Loren was pretty, my grandpa thought so too...:)

I'm sooo not ready for snow! It looks pretty in photos when someone else is dealing with it though. :)
