Snow


I woke up this morning to a beautiful, white landscape, all glorious and sparkly. I was thrilled it was a heavy, wet kind of snow, the sort that slumps off your car like a soggy blanket. We put up our Christmas tree on Saturday and hung garlands over the windows. The ornaments have been upwrapped and hung on the tree's bendable limbs *grins* That is one of the perks of a fake tree, you can move the limbs however you wish and they don't complain or protest! What did you guys do this weekend? Anyone else get snowed on?

Tomorrow I will have another Self Portrait to show you! Also, I plan on posting my portrait this week. We finally got some sunshine!

Yay! I'm so happy someone else is decorating early, too :) We haven't put the tree up yet, but we have already watched at least 2 Christmas movies :)

Krissy said...

Love this photo!! I really should have put my tree up this weekend. It'll be hard to find time to get everything all decorated. The holidays are coming in fast!

How exciting you got snow :) I'm a bit jealous...

please sir said...

Yay for Snow!! I so wish we would get some here. But no it is a gloomy day... We do have rain in the forcast for tonight.
No tree up here yet.
I spent my weekend working on my to do list.

AWWWW! SNOW! That is viewed as a luxury here in California. I have always dreamed of a white Christmas. But instead we just get a wet one :P

I early decorated for once too! Although no snow here in Laguna Beach, just overcast :( I'm planning to plant lots of white cyclamen around the borders to make it a white christmas though!

If only snow could look that beautiful all the time...

dolcechic said...

I wish it'd snow here! I can't wait to see pictures of your house all decorated. We decorated too, the yard looks cute, and the house is all cluttered with Christmas :)

PS I have something for you on my blog!!! :)

yeah for snow on the weekends! snow during the week for scott can turn an already 1-2 hour commute to travel 20 miles a nightmare. but, i do love how snow makes everything so bright and quiet.

putting up your tree now sounds so great! i'm looking forward to the self-portrait tomorrow and yours, too! it truly is thanksgiving ;)!

Tartelette said...

Great photo! I am looking forward to make a couple of ornaments this year. we decorate the tree with heirloom family pieces plus one or two I make as my mom would always make us do that and keeping up with it makes me feel closer.
If you get tired of the snow, send us some this way!!

Amber said...

Sounds like a lovely weekend and what a wonderful way to greet Monday morning!

Caroline @ Absolutely Unique said...

Oh what a lovely photo Julia! No, we don't have snow here for Christmas. I usually wait until Dec. 8 for decorating my tree. But maybe this year I'll start earlier! Have a wonderful new week darling! xoxo

Brittany Noel said...

What a nice post, Julia! We got a bit of a wet snow, today, too, but only a very little bit. I hope it holds off until I'm home across the state... I'm going to try to get a tree this weekend. Can't wait!

wunderbug said...

we got snow too! ours even stayed for a little while, before being beaten into slush by the rain we got today.

christmas decorations will be making an appearance at my house shortly.. for now, christmas carols will have to do!

it's just starting to get chilly here ...and by chilly, I mean in the 70's ...lol.

Callie Grayson said...

i woke up to snow but it didn't stick.
maybe by the time you come down to visit we will have snow here.

I received more boxes in the mail from my mum with my grandmothers things! felt like early Christmas!! I unpacked them this weekend and just hung out with my dog!

littlebyRD said...

Oh lucky duck! I am wanting it to snow here so badly. It sounds wonderfully festive around your place. I am nowhere near any decorating but have been thinking about it lots. Looking forward to your self portrait!

amy@inspirationchic said...

SimplyGrove said...

Yay for decorating early!!! Good job:) And I am so jealous of your snow!

Laura B said...

This a beautiful photo! We have it sharp and cold here, but no snow yet, so enjoy for me too :)

LUCKY!!! I am so so jealous!! I miss snow!! :) This post makes me want to get started on Christmas gift shopping and decorating right now!

Sara Christine said...

You have snow already?! I am so jealous! Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving. :)

Piper Madison said...

I can't believe people are getting Christmas trees already! I'm so behind! I've GOT to organize my life. Maybe it's because I'm in Florida. It's hard to get in the Christmas spirit when people are still wearing flip flops.

dojski said...

last weekend was a work weekend for me. duh.

=)
