    1. Sure was pretty to wake up to! But the boys were home today, so my plans all went out the window. ha.

  2. That kitty silhouette is adorable! The ears are in the position that we used to call "wearing a hat" when my cat Oliver did it. Is that snowfall an early record? I don't remember snow that early when I lived in Cuyahoga Falls in the 1st and 2nd grades. In those days we had a milkman. One morning he told my mother to keep me home from school, because the drifts were so high. He was afraid I might disappear while walking. Lynne in NC

    1. Well, it does seem a bit early for snow but it came the same time last year. Maybe it's the new normal now. ha.

      Yes, that kitty is wearing a hat! haha...perfect description.

      I remember when we had a milk man....I was about three years old...then they were extinct! lol....

    1. Boy, it's going to stay cold this week, too....no chance of it melting!
      Are you feeling better? Thinking about you...hope you're on the mend!

    2. Thanks for your thoughts, Betsy. The shingles rash has gone and the Bell's Palsy is improving. I am still left with the nerve pain. The neurologist said it can remain indefinitely sometimes. But it is not as severe. That is progress : )

      Delete
    3. Glad you're improving! Think positive....prayers that it won't be indefinite! :) xo

  7. Brrrr! . . .I bet Garden Girl is feeling the cold . . . lol
    All those pictures are beautiful ~ you had quite a lot of snow there.
    I love particularly the photo of the snow behind the stained glass window.
    I bet all the cats come inside to keep warm . . .
    That photo of the robin is good enough for publication ~ I can see it on traditional Christmas Cards ~ great shot! Is it a robin? your's are a bit different to our's ? . . . :)
    Keith . . where are you?

    1. Well, she's still smiling....I didn't see any shivers! ha.
      Lots of cats inside today...although they did go have a good game of chase out in the back...so fun to watch!
      That is a house finch...cute little guy! Yes, our robins are big old things....lol....

    2. Ed - It's not a stained glass window, it's just glass decorated with coloured film and stick-on lead, very nice though. Those pictures would win all the prizes in a Photographic Competition. Well done Betsy, you missed your true vocation in life.

      Delete
    3. Well, thanks Keith. And if you'd just make me some real stained glass windows, I could swap them out with my fake ones! ha.

    3. Poor Aphrodite, all covered in snow. The kitty in the window must have been thinking "I really, really need to go toilet, but i think i'll wait a bit longer until the nasty white stuff has gone away!"

    4. Oh dear...he'll be waiting a long time! haha.

  11. Betsy, your ;pictures makes me want to live where it snows. It's so beautiful. I love your lovely lady in the snow...It's like her white velvet wrap. I got everything done I needed before Thanksgiving..so I'm off my break. It was a productive time.

    I love seeing your statue in the snow.

    1. I've enjoyed her in every season and wondered what she'd look like in the snow! Love what Wanda said...a white velvet wrap around her.

  13. Like everyone else has said already, beautiful pictures! I love snow pictures! All we got here---roaring in this afternoon---was the cold wind!! Brrrrr. I'm chilled to my bones. Guess I really am getting old!

  14. You should be a sponsor for the visitors bureau of Ohio. It is gorgeous there. The birdbath water froze last night for the first time here this year. Boy, it sure doesn't look pretty though. We need some moisture! Glad you all have some. Stay warm. Taria

    1. Ohio is kind of an unsung beauty...I don't think anyone would name Ohio when naming lovely spots...but it is! No mountains or anything fancy, but it is lovely all the same!

    2. fancy is overrated. there seems a peaceful beauty there. I appreciate your sharing it with us. Taria

  15. It was the perfect day for a quick stop at the library (after spending the morning on my laptop...), some laundry, a pot of cabbage soup, a quick nap, and an apple pie (or two) to share with a friend tomorrow

  16. Such lovely photos! I like them all, especially the one of the statue. =)
    I hope you are staying warm!

  17. Beautiful Miss Betsy!

    All we got was COLD and a little misty rain. 23* overnight and up to 40* today. Only 33* tomorrow. We at this time of year usually get in the 50*s during the day but this cold snap is staying COLD. haha. I'm envious of the snow. :)

  19. It's like you used the Black & White setting on your camera.
    I like the pops of colors in some of the pictures.
    Cool, yes, cool!

  20. SNOW!!! I love the snow so much and these are beautiful, Betsy. The house finch is absolutely glorious and should be featured in a publication. He, and the surrounding snow-dipped berries, look like a painting. This would make a gorgeous card... and I would buy it!
    I think Garden Girl looks rather pleased with her head and shoulders dusting. Such a pretty stole she is sporting and look at kitty in the window. I bet they had a blast frolicking about.
    We had a wee bit yesterday and today but it is not sticking. Had our first power outage last night - no electricity for over three hours. Was getting a little cool in my home!

    1. He posed so nicely, didn't he? And with the perfect background. This snow was very photogenic...so fun! Later in the afternoon the thick buildup on the trees fell like avalanches...that was fun to watch, too! haha.

    2. Was just reading your comment about a cat in every window. Ha! Not a lot of people can say that... and have it be true!

    3. haha...so true! The windows that look out onto a bird feeder are the most popular!

  21. Wow, you really got a bunch of it
    Just rained and rained at my blog pit
    That I will take with ease
    The snow can stay there and please
    Suza is a bit nuts with snow
    Looks like the kitty is not impressed with the show haha

    1. We got a bunch and I sent some to you!
      But not so much to make you blue!
      Maybe it will reach you by tomorrow
      and I bet I'll hear your sorrow. haha.

    2. Ha, Pat!
      Yes, I am a bit nuts with snow
      Wish we had lots and lots to stow
      So far it's sparse, light and wet
      But plenty will come very soon, I bet!

    3. None have reached my shore
      Too mild today for that to be in store
      Your snow mail failed indeed
      Works fine for my feed lol

      As long as it all stays near you
      Plenty you can have at your zoo

    4. Must have fizzled away
      as it got to the shores of Maine.
      Suza might send you some snow weather
      as you Canadians stick together.
      haha.

    2. My husband talks about wanting to see the midwest and east coast areas. Since we're both teachers we've traveled quite a bit in our little motorhome during the summer, but haven't been farther east than Colorado.

  25. You had a pretty good amount of snow, especially for this time of year. I'll definitely have to send you all of our snow as it looks so much more beautiful at your house.

    Hope you are well. You've had a lot of "thoughtful" THINKING this past week, and somehow I think that's not a good sign. Hope I'm wrong.

    1. Send it...you know I'd take it. As long as we have power, that is. :)

      I have been thoughtful and quiet for many days now..you're so observant. :) I need to manage my stress better...working on that.
      Lots on my mind, too....crazy! I think I need a vacation. :)

    2. I'd send you my son's books that teach relaxation techniques but I don't think that alone would do the trick. Can't always get stress to go away, so I hope you can find a way to release a bit of it.

    3. Thanks, Yuji. I know what to do...it's just doing it, I think. I have some things on my mind and then I fell out of my routine during the reno of working out and being organized and it's proved to be a bad combination for me. haha...I need to get back on track!
