First Snow and a Gift

Hi everyone. Thank you so much for all the nice comments on my giveaway. I wish you all could win!! This has been a fast week and I'm glad the weekend is here. I have lots to do too and hopefully I get through half of my "To Do" list.
I had my massage tonight so if I don't make any sense just realize I'm very very very relaxed . I had such a lovely surprise today too!! I had a package in my mail box from Deb at Garage Sale Gal. Isn't she the sweetest friend. Look at all the lovely gifts that were in my package. There are stickers, a small notebook that is already in my purse, sticky notes which I love, tea which I have water on boiling for, a cookie cutter and see Minnesota and a beautiful hanky to add to my collection. I know I've forgotten something but if you enlarge the picture you can see it all. She wrote me a special note in the "Mary" card. Thank you so very much Deb. I love everything.
The first exciting thing that happened today was getting up to SNOW!! Not much and it was over by 9:00 but it was pretty. Nice big flakes falling slowly and softly.
I took this from my kitchen window. See the squirrels and bird enjoying the snow?

Aren't they the cutest? The closest in the picture was sitting there watching me taking the picture, I think he was posing for the camera. Now I have a Diva squirrel who lives in my tree.

We did get a little on my patio. Bailey enjoyed the snow. I think he was watching it fall to the ground.

I really like this picture. I took it right after I got up (yes I went outside in my jammies and yes it was cold). It was not that dark out though. You can see the snow really well. It looks like the stars and planets but it is really snow.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

That last photo of the snow falling is awesome! My cats freaked out when we got snow once and they tried to walk in it; they were hopping like little bunnies!

I love those pictures! The first snow is always so amazing. We might get our first one tomorrow. Baldyman put up our Christmas decorations outside tonight so it will make it even more beautiful.

Lucky you, to receive such nice gifts!

That Deb is certainly something else! She gets around, doesn't she? ;) Congrats on your sweet gifts and snowfall!


Hi Judy,

When you took the pic of the snow falling, was the flash on or off ? That is a cool pic. No pun intended LOL.

What beautiful photos again Judy! Your blog always seems to have photos of a wonderland on it, you are so lucky. My mum would especially like the snow, as you can imagine in South Africa snow is pretty rare to see. I've been lucky to see snow a few times since living in England, but not for long periods of time. The diva squirrel is so cute! Magical post!

Yipee -- first snow! I love this time of year when we start getting those dustings that prepare for the bigger, real thing. Great package -- enjoy your goodies!

Don't think I've ever seen a photo quite like that. The snow does look like stars.
