Sunday morning I yanked open my bedroom curtains… and I found this! I shouted HOLY SNOW (actually, it sounded more like HOLY MITten). Why oh why did I not get a jump on Pam and Elizabeth’s DARLING mitten/scarf/hat project!?!
I looked to my left and saw this. We’re not in snow country, so this is an extra special treat. I think Angelina, Paula and Sarah agree! And the snow hides all the bird poop that adorns my bench. Nice snow. Nice snow. Thank you snow. Thank you British Columbia for sending us your wonderful snow producing arctic air.
My husband was not interested in happy little corners or eggnog. He wanted to hop in his truck and see the snow beyond our neck of the woods. My jammies went flying and I got dressed in 2 seconds flat. I’m ready!
This is our bridge that links us to our next door neighbor… Washington state. Some people refer to this bridge as the Astoria-Megler bridge… but the name has since changed to The PamKittyMorning Bridge after Pam adopted it as hers last spring. The PKM Bridge is the path that takes me to Karen’s. Karen and I quickly compared snow-notes… to see who had more. I think I won. Elevation matters. And speaking of Karen… SHE’S GOT A BLOG NOW! If you visit her, be sure to tell her you came from my blog’s high elevation down to her blog’s sea level elevation.
This is not our house (sigh). It belongs to friends of ours (and former neighbors behind us), and it was built by her great-grandfather. Just as dreamy on the inside as it is on the outside. This is the house I got to look at out of my sewing room window at our last house. Not a bad view at all!
I am BLOWN AWAY with the responses and comments on my Pennie Pockets. I heart each and everyone of you, and thank you so very much! I blush. I gush. I am so blessed with everyone’s kindness.
