Last one. I promise.

December 19th, 2008

Last snow post.  I promise.  Really.  Even though in some spots we got 4-6” of it last night, and more is promised on the way (ice is also forecast, so I don’t know if we’re too excited anymore)…

On my honor
I will say
No more mention of snow
At least not for today

Oh wait.  It IS today.  Ok… tonight then.  Tonight didn’t rhyme with “say”.  So, you know, anyhoo.  A few more pics.  I did after all do some housekeeping housecropping.  We don’t typically get a lot of snow in NW Oregon, and we’ve gotten gobs of it at our house overnight.  A pretty big deal for us.  From the comments on my last post… is there any place that’s not getting snow?  Snow in LAS VEGAS… in LOUISIANA… holy smokes!  I even heard on the news that MALIBU got a dusting.   I can’t stop combing blogland to see other friends in the area - to see how the snow looks at their houses… so I feel it’s a public service here in The Land of Rain to post more of my photos.  I’m in love with Vicki’s, Jodi’s and Cranna Nanna’s winter pics.  Dream, dreamy, dreamy.

Last night as it snowed. The view from my spot on the sofa. TV to left. The snowman to the right. My head held firm to the right.

Even Mochi the cat was entertained.
Somethin's goin' on out there.

I copied Paula after seeing her lights on her kitchen window.

Ok. I’m done.

    Oh, say it aint so. Please don’t stop posting your lovely pictures. For those of us suffering from the single season blues… we enjoy seeing all the winter wonder that you have been blessed with. Love it!

    I love the snowperson. Enjoy the snow. It’s snowing over here too but in CT in the winter, we expect it so I’m not going to show pictures. Since we had a snowday, I kept myself busy by making your pennie pockets… awesome! I will post pictures on my blog in a few days. Take a peek when you can!

    Jen :)

    No snow down here in the south Bay area of CA but it has been mighty chilly at night. There is a bit of frost on the car windows that are street parked. We’ve kept the thermostat at a nice 73 degrees and have stayed nice and toasty warm. :-)

    Love the non-denominational frozen precipitation figure!

    I love the enthusiastic snow post. I live in Vermont. Snow is something we do all too well. It is 4 degrees and snowing hard (over 8 inches so far for today, more coming on Sunday). Every other day lately. After having some of the worst driving conditions in a long while today, I do really appreciate the good outlook on the snow. It is beautiful. We will have a white Christmas. Please keep the fun coming. I absolutely love your blog!!!

    You know now that you mentioned it, we got some snow this week, too! I was just too busy to realize it. The kids were out of school and everything!

  10. The fabulous Jackie allegedly said:

    We just got dumped on about 10 inches or so with more to come. But as you already know I am not so fond of the stuff… lived with it all my life. But I can really understand your enthusiasm. I love your nondenominational precipitation figure… What did you use for those wonderful big eyes??

  11. The fabulous Penni D allegedly said:

  12. The fabulous Bren allegedly said:

  13. The fabulous Anne allegedly said:

    Wow, a winter wonderland. What in the world happens to Astoria and all those hills? Especially that one big one by that mansion. (I can’t remember the name of the street). We’ve gotten snow too and the “big one” is on it’s way tomorrow night. Guess you’ll be getting it during the day. Stay warm!

  14. The fabulous Lissa allegedly said:

    I LOVE your snow pictures. I want MORE, MORE, MORE!! We have gotten about 8 or 9 inches yesterday and last night and it’s still snowing. It looks like a snow globe. The snow is one thing I will miss terribly when we leave here. I’ll be posting some snow soon on my blog. :) Have fun out there making a woman for your snowguy! :)

  20. The fabulous MichelleB allegedly said:

    The snow pictures are great - but I really love the window picture! It looks like such a great kitchen to be in. I also love your chair by the window. I’d never want to leave it.

  21. The fabulous Laura allegedly said:

    No snow here in Mobile, AL. So for our sake, please post more snow pics! :)

  22. The fabulous Shirlene allegedly said:

    Sorry to rain (I only wish) on your parade but I am sick of the stuff. Many of the fun holiday activities I look forward to all year have been cancelled because of this junk. I could never live in the NE or mid west.

    Your pictures are great and I loved the snow for the first three days but now it is getting old and freezing rain and ice on top of this - get me some good old Oregon rain!!

  25. The fabulous Kim P. allegedly said:

    Nope, no snow here in Sac Town, darn it! Last week, though, the levels came down low enough so the foothill towns were getting a little. I would just LOVE to have me some snow, although it would be nice if it arrived on a weekend when we didn’t have to drive anywhere in it!

  26. The fabulous Julie allegedly said:

    Just beautiful! It looks like a fairy land. I really like your snow fella, he does look a little wistful and lonely…dreaming of a white Christmas!!

    The PNW Snow Bunny — Santa Monica:
    The snow WAS great, the first couple storms — I’m done now, take it away!! 14 - 16″ sitting on the deck, tire chains to get around (and YES — I did it myself), and my sweet baby sister’s flight cancelled!! All done!! I’m through for several years now, thanks.
    Just let me have 2 birthdays on the 24th (Son’s 17th and Mom’s 79th) and 1 on Christmas — BABY JESUS himself, without too much more effort.
    Merry Christmas to the Doyenne of the Quilt Blogging World (I love reading you!),

  40. The fabulous angelina allegedly said:

    I love your snow pictures! Your kitchen window is so great!!!! I think your snow-person does have a bit of a lecherous look in his eye.

  41. The fabulous nancy allegedly said:

    Enjoy the snow! When it’s a novelty, it is lovely. I like it much better that way. I love you pennie pockets! Thank you for the tutorial. They will make super little gifties for my two college age daughters and their roommates, after they get back to school. A little floral taste of spring with some little candies, as our gray winter weather gets oppressing.

  42. The fabulous amy (sew~amy) allegedly said:

    your pictures are beautiful.

  43. The fabulous Mary allegedly said:

    We had no snow. And it’s been in the 60s here, too. Of course, with that we get rain. Lots and lots of rain. I may drown at any moment. ;)

  44. The fabulous Chris@catsonmyquilts allegedly said:

    You guys out west need to stop having so much snow because a few days after you, we get a good size storm in NH. Had 2 feet the weekend before Christmas. Enough already!

  45. The fabulous Emi allegedly said:

    Hello from another Astorian. Like you, I love the snow. I miss it now that it has all melted, reminded me of growing up in Idaho. Too bad my sewing room was too **** cold to work in!

    Nice blog, I’ll visit again.

  46. The fabulous Terisa allegedly said:

    It has been fun visiting here. The snow looks beautiful on the “slopes of Astoria” I have family in Silverton, Woodburn ans Salem. Oregon is beautiful country!
    always…”running with scissors”

  47. The fabulous Stephanie allegedly said:

    I think the snow got stalled over Oregon…Ohio have NONE! What a picture perfect scene of your cute tablescape in front of the snowy window. I love the teacup lamp!!! I’m all about tea.

  48. The fabulous heleen allegedly said:

    What a lovely winterwonderland!
    Happy new year!

  49. The fabulous Jona allegedly said:

    It all looks so dreamy and the pictures from the window are wonderful!! I’m sure you’re more than tired of it but it’s fun to look at from Arizona (my sisters are in Portland so we’ve gotten lots peeks)! I hope you’re thawing out now. :)

  50. The fabulous Cranna Nanna allegedly said:

    I have more snow photos, too, but I don’t know if I really want to show them anymore. Yes, I am that tired of the snow, and we still have a LOT. I am seeing larger patches of green in the lawn, so it’s proof positive the white stuff is going bye-bye. We’re in the ugly stage of snow now. So sad.
    Your kitchen window is totally cute in it’s Christmas-y decor. I love the view of the snow person from your living room, and Mochi’s pretty cute, too.
    Oh, by the way, I think we had your snowbabies in our yard, or maybe they were just lumps of snow that looked like snowbabies!

  51. The fabulous Adds allegedly said:

    Look at how fluffy and white it is! I am so jealous, I wish it could snow here, instead were all inside under the aircon in a heat wave!
    Happy New Year. Adds xx

  52. The fabulous Emilie allegedly said:

    hehe snow-picture addicted, just like me.
    hey you know what ? your interior pictures are kinda really making me want to paint one of our living room wall in a bright turquoise.. hummm.
    p.s. im still thinking about that “pretty garden shed” at night when i can’t sleep…

  53. The fabulous robin-bird allegedly said:

    between this post and the ones above i must say it is a wonderful place to live and you make it all look so happy!!! the street shots…i can hardly believe you had that much snow!!!!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
