Snowflakes That Stay On My Nose And Eyelashes

  1. Lovely photo. You are clever. It's been very frosty here but so still and dry it hasn't felt too cold. Bit of a surprise. London winters tend to be so damp and raw. I have been walking to work through the frost. Very good for me I'm sure. And I even walked home again this evening. It won't last.

    1. I don't mind being out in the cold if there isn't any wind. Nice you can still walk to work...hopefully for a little while longer!

      My Jo Malone samples came yesterday! I love the Blackberry and Bay! So nice!

    2. That was quick. I think it's a wonderful fragrance. Having a bath in it is very special but just for a change yesterday's bath was rose flavoured.
      Who knows what the winter will do next? I think we have rain coming. If it's very wet I shall be practical and take the bus to avoid getting wet knees. I hate it when my knees get wet.

    3. No, you can't show up to work with wet knees. I do agree! haha.

    1. They make great eye contact. I don't know what it is! He sure was cute out there...he and the bigger squirrel....

  3. Awww - look at his little frosty self. So darn cute! I know they have fur, but oh my, I shiver for them!

    1. He really is cute. I never was a squirrel fan before I got these feeders that prevent them from dumping the seed on the ground. Now I'm enjoying them! haha.

  4. How cute! I wish I could send you my snow. It had just melted off and then we got another 3" last night. Plus, it's the fluffy kind which makes it hard to be outside walking around in. I cannot wait to get to Florida! lol.

    2. Your comment looks fine to me! And I think you are sending us your snow! It's been gently falling all day!

  5. Poor guy looks a little cold
    As the snow takes hold
    Or just keeping a watchful eye
    For any cats that may decide to fly

    1. There's always a cat lurking below
      in the pines as the gusty winds blow.
      So far he's outsmarted them all
      and sits and eats when dinner calls.

  6. Great photo! Bless it! He looks cold, but all he needs to do is wrap that bushy tail around himself. Look how full that thing is. Love that you caught him with snow on his nose.

    1. He kept digging his face into the snow on the feeder...so funny!
      I swear he kept stopping to pose for the camera. "Is this my good side, Betsy?" haha.

    1. Progress, I say! Pure progress! lol....
      And we're 1/3 done with winter as of tomorrow!

    2. Winter wouldn't be so bad if the snow was warm and the ice soft and bouncy. I could learn to enjoy winter if it were so!

    3. Betsy . . . Roll on the next 2 thirds (as quickly as possible) . . lol

      Perhaps it was warmer Keith might be tempted to pose in your tree . . . lol

    4. No, I love winter to go long and slow! What's wrong with you people?
      Why do you want the heat, allergies, bugs and sweat? lol...

      Delete
    5. lol . . . I don't sweat . . . it's not that hot here in non winter months . . . :)

  8. Quite the poser, isn't he?
    Have you a name for him?

    Great shot Betsy and you didn't even have to go outside in the cold ~ shame though because we might have been treated to another peek at those boots . . . lol

    1. Spiffing boots, eh what old bean? Absolutely wizard, just like the Brylcream Boys wore in the Spitties during the last war, what! (RAF banter)

    2. Jolly Hockey Sticks to you Keith, old boy . . . Frightfully col;d weather we are having ~ real brass monkey weather!!

      Betsy ~ Are you soaking again in that tub? . . . :)

    3. You pansies don't know what a cold winter is! You say it's freezing there and I'll check online and it's 45F degrees there. Silly men....

      And yes, Keith...my boots are a bit like the Brylcream Boys! Maybe I should give them a good spit and polish. haha.

    4. Yes . . . but you've got a lovely furnace to keep you warm all day ~ just think of the latent heat you have stored ~ so when you go into the cold for a few seconds you hardly notice a thing . . . don't forget we a nearer to Russia who kindly send us artic wind with a wicked chill factor . . . hahah

    5. I saw a brass monkey today running around looking for a welder!

    6. Laughing at "Pansies" . . . she must love us . . . haha . . or me anyway . . lol
      Did he find the welder? . . . lol

    7. "Pansies"? A 'Cheeky Cherokee' no less! Ha.

    8. Russia? The wind blows the other direction, you know. haha. Maybe Iceland is freezing you? Or Canada? lol....

      Delete
    9. Well the Artic. Russia, Siberia ~ sometimes the wind changes direction . . . lol
      Now I wouldn't be surprised about Canada!!! . . . get frost bite just thinking about it . . haha.

    2. Wow that's great! How will you call the little one then? :-)
