A Cozy Snowy Evening.....

We had the prettiest snow last night! It made for a snug and cozy evening inside.


It wasn’t supposed to be but a few flakes, but it really started coming down in huge gorgeous flakes for a few hours leaving us with a dusting, possibly an inch of snow.

Jason went outside and turned on the porch lights of The Cedar Loft so we could enjoy the snow fall under the lights from the kitchen.


After supper dishes were cleaned up, we all snuggled on the couch in the living room with bowls of popcorn.



And enjoyed yet another Christmas movie, An Avonlea Christmas, with the window blinds open in the living room so we could enjoy the snow fall through the front porch lights.



It was just one of those perfectly cozy evenings with my family that I want to etch in my memory forever with the Christmas lights twinkling inside and the beautiful snowflakes falling outside.



I know you folks up north get a good laugh at us folks (here in the south). But then again, we can get excited I suppose because we never have to worry about shoveling it every day. By morning, the snow was gone for the most part, and the rest of it melted quickly since the ground was still warm from previous days of rain.

It was good while it lasted. And I’m beginning to think that our persimmon seed weather forecast just might be right on. With snow here already in November, we just might see a lot of snow this winter.

And I'm just fine with that.  :)

Sounds like the perfect evening to me! Unfortunately too many times when it's snowing here in PA either my hubby or daughter are out driving in it and that scares me so much. But I love the times when it snows and we can do like you did and just enjoy the beauty of it!

Mama,

It was so cozy! Hopefully there are more nights like that to come! I wonder what kind of snow we'll be getting in January and February. And boy, wouldn't it be great to have a white Christmas?

I love you! 8!

God bless you!
Love,
Joy :D

You had snow and we up here in NH had 63 degrees. Did the earth flip or something? We will have much cooler temps today and back into the 40's by Friday. I do like a soft snow that is here today to enjoy and gone tomorrow! Perfect.

We are due for snow on Saturday. Yuk. I don't mind the pretty snow but when it gets dangerous to drive which is a lot of the time, then it's no fun. But my boys love the white stuff and can't wait to go sledding!

Sharon said...

It does look like a nice snow fall but we are to get it today and I am not a snow person because ours here seems to last and just keep piling up.
I agree that these are snuggle up times however.
