"Tea & Cookie" for the snowstorm

We had at least 2 feet of snow this weekend. It looks lovely, but I definitely needed a warm cup of tea and a cookie after tromping around in the snow Sunday morning to take some photos. I guess I won't be sitting on my patio for a while. lol I will leave you with these photos of a white Christmas and wish you the joy and peace of the holiday season!!!

Beautiful snow... I'm one of those weirdos that love the stuff. However, I also love being inside looking out enjoying hot cocoa and a cookie... your painting is warming! Have a Blessed Christmas Joan.

The painting sketch is lovely. I'm very happy you have the snow and not us. (Evil Grin!) Hope your Christmas is just great.

Wow, I have never seen that much snow, well I guess I don't really see any snow, unless I drive there. And then I pick a nice warm, sunny day to drive there! Oh, sorry! I used to get to Christmas and really think I would like to have a white Christmas but with that beauty comes colddddddd temps! I guess I am a wimp, I would have taken photos from inside through windows! Merry Christmas!!!!

Wow! You got more than we did! Hope you got some good references for snow scenes. Maybe you'll get to take some snow pics in Maine too.

Helen - Thank you. I like the snow from inside or long enough to take photos outside. lol

Lin - Thanks. Luckily my car was in my garage and the staff at our complex did a great job clearing the snow. I did have lots of cookies too.

Jo - Thank you. I left the snow behind and am up in the real snow country where the ground has no snow. lol

Desiree - Thanks. I think I enjoy the snow right after I get outside. I had fun taking photos but it was cold!

Mickey - I got a few photos that day and lots the next day of kids sledding. Maine barely has any snow...but it is very cold!

Robyn said...

Now I have snow envy, Joan. Beautiful!

My very best wishes for a Merry Christmas for you and your family.

Joan said...

Robyn - Thanks. It did look pretty for a while. By the time I get back from visiting relatives in Maine, it will probably be mostly melted and in that ugly stage. lol Have a great Christmas!

The hot drink & cookie looks like a great idea. We had the coolest Boxing Day in 100 years & I was drinking hot tea and eating mince pies, instead of sweltering as usual.
