snow day...

Hello December


i'm declaring a holiday
 snow day
12 inches
(that's unheard  before christmas)


even though we homeschool
and there isn't really a  reason
not to do math...
 what's the fun in that?




i have the whole day at home
(even church is cancelled)



what to do?




 the possibilities are endless




bake 
get lost in blogland
make one of these...i've always wanted to
read
watch North and South
sit by the fire
decorate the mantle
i could even get out the sewing machine
get my etsy store back up and running
make soup
hmm...we'll see what happens




have a cozy day,
Rene'

Your house is amazing ,,LOVE IT! It went from 20's to 50's here at a little after noon. That is Texas typical weather, crazy. The snow is so pretty. Thanks for the photos. judy

Oh, Rene...Can I just say how appreciative I am that you took the time to photograph your beautiful farmhouse in the snow for us? It is nothing short of GORGEOUS and your pictures are worthy of a story book! I am a little envious of a foot of snow, here in MI all we got was a dusting, but it still helps with the cozy at home feeling snow brings with it!

Have a great day!
XOXO

Your home looks so lovely with the blanket of snow around it. We are having snow flurries here also. I have been trimming the tree and such. Enjoy your snow day.

Just a little something from Judy said...

I am a bit jealous of your white winter wonderland, considering I in the midst of a rain storm here. Your pictures are so beautiful! I know that whatever you put your heart into doing today, it will end up being worthwhile. Your creativity continues to amaze me. Stay warm.

Wow, it's early but pretty just the same.

It is gray and windy here with the temperature dropping. It's supposed to get down to 54 and feel like it's 48 for us. I was sweating earlier, but after lunch the weather did a switcheroo, and the a.c. is now off.

Enjoy your cozy day indoors.

I agree with all your suggestions while you sit by the fire and enjoy the beauty around you. Gosh, for as far as I can see in your pics it's all white. Your place is just beautiful, a post card type of beauty!!

Wow Rene,
Your house looks amazing blanketed in all that beautiful snow. I saw the JC magazine on Junes blog & need to go order it. I love her work. I love Porch too, always get it. Are you in it this month? If not you should be. Your home is SO magazine worthy. Happy Holiday wishes to you! Lisa

Hi Rene,
Thank you for visiting my blog!
How did you find me?
Love you blog too- I have had a bit of a look around.
I think a snow day would be fun, not something that will ever happen where we live but we have had a too hot day and taken off to the beach or pool!
