Carved In Snow

This last week when we finally got the snow storm that Mrs. Mac has been wishing on us for the last two months, I thought I had better go out and make that snow ball that I have been promising her.
THE snowball that I have been planning to throw at her!
No such luck though.
The snow was dry and fluffy, and way too dry.
It was just the same texture as the snow that used to fall in my beloved Manitoba.
It was a rare snowball or snowman that we could make THERE!
Well with a forgiving spirit, I decided that what I would do for Mrs. Mac was to carve her name on the snow laden back yard of the palace and here in the first picture, you can see it.
One thing about being at my client's place, there are no neighbors... Nobody around to see a crazy white haired lady playing in the snow!
Playing in the snow with no boots on!
Only the squirrels, chipmunks and birds could see and they are quite used to me by now!
Besides I had told them ahead of time, that if they let out the secret, there would be NO MORE seeds, and peanuts for THEM!!
So Mrs. Mac, you can stop singing that song that you love so much, "Let It Snow, Let it Snow"!!
Your wish has been granted.

Tomorrow morning when I go to the palace, I am going to bring the pillow that my good Kentucky friend, Morgan Denise[Splash of Color] sent to me last year, a pillow that says, "Let it Melt"!!

I have added some other photos that I took and really even though it is very cold now, winter does make a lovely scene.
These pictures are what as Saija[Through a Glass Darkly] would say have surely been painted by God!

"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?....Job 38:22

Wonderful winter pictures!

In germany is no snow.

I'm thrilled with the photo! The blue sky in the background is a nice touch. So you actually have a pillow that says "Let It Melt" hum? I now have your location fixed forever in my mind. Too bad I didn't know you when I lived in Michigan ... it would have been such a short drive to come for a visit. Soon I will write a post about my visit to Niagra Falls (it was a doozy). The "gift" is hungry for breakfast ... see you later. P.S. All of the photos are beautiful. Have a wonderful Saturday.

These photos look like a winter wonderland. Just beautiful. A sunny day here in CA, but not really warm.
Enjoy your weekend...

Once again I loved your pictures!

We got winter finally here in Finland. It's so beautiful here. I really love winter. It's so nice to go out and walk on the lake and just admire God's wonders. Next time I'll take my camera and share that beauty with you guys.

And who says that "a crazy white haired lady" shouldn't play in the snow? :D

Saija said...

i've been hibernating ... so just now came around to see your wonderful pics ... and surely they were painted by God ... well, with the exception of the mrs mac greeting - that was done by one of God's sweet saints .. :o)

SiouxSue said...

Glorious, Terry, and definitely painted by God. I would love to see it and touch it. Some day I'd like to spend a month or so where there is snow!

Mrs. Mac said...

Did you ever make it home from work sister??

Miss Terry,

I don't know whether to feel jealous or guilty when I look at those photo. I do declare...I love snow...but never been snowed in. It looks so peaceful, quite and calm.

Not to make you feel bad...but earlier this week in southern was in the 80's. Surely didn't feel like winter...more like "spring is on it's way".

You be sure to put those snow boots on. No frostbite for those toes now you hear?
