Winter wonderland

We've had our first heavy snowfall of the season...the world around me is blanketed in white. It is 3 (three!) degrees outside. I am grateful for my propane stove...it is keeping the house warm.



Click photo for Winter Wonderland sung by Annie Lennox

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
in the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
we're happy tonight,
walking in a winter wonderland.

Gone away is the bluebird,
here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song,
as we go along,
walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say: Are you married?
we'll say: No man,
But you can do the job
when you're in town.

Later on, we'll conspire,
as we dream by the fire
To face unafraid,
the plans that we've made,
walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
and pretend that he's a circus clown
We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman,
until the other kids knock him down.

When it snows, ain't it thrilling,
Though your nose gets a chilling
We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,
walking in a winter wonderland.

Walking in a winter wonderland,
walking in a winter wonderland.

Lyrics by Richard Smith

Brrrrr...baby it's cold outside, one of them nostril freezin' days, yesterday 54 and today...I ain't gonna talk about it.

I finally found the cloche pics, I'll get them off soon...love the pic of Trux in the mountains. I miss the days in Colorado when me and my Irish Setter and Blue Healer would spend days walking the trails in the high country...now that's what I call campin'.

Isn't the snow beautiful! There's more on the way too! I could stand for it to be a little warmer though :) It's actually gotten up to a sweltering 12 over here in Prineville :)

3 degrees?! That's scary...I'm not used to that anymore. But snow, now snow would be nice.

Hey C, I know that song...singing it in my head halfway..didnt manage to finish it though :) Wow..3 degree..I really dont think I can survive there, when its 16 celcius..and I am already freezing..but would be fun to have snow once.

It never snowed in Malaysia where I live. It's cold, I know. I spent 6 years in CA. which is supposed to be a warm place. Still, when it snowed, brrrr ...

Brrrrr. I hope you are staying inside and keeping cuddly warm. It was around 24 here yesterday but with some horrible winds - I went outside to try to snap a few photos for Etsy and lasted all of 4 minutes. Too cold.

Hey Harriet said...

3 degrees? I'll stick to appreciating snow from pictures of it thanks. That's far too cold for me! Rug up & keep warm :)
