A White Thanksgiving

Nature gave us a little holiday present yesterday, when an early snowstorm blew through and coated everything with white. Schools closed, roads and highways became an icy mess, and holiday travel was disrupted.

Our power went out, and instead of watching the finale of Dancing with the Stars, I finished reading a book with a cool LED headlamp my husband dug out.

This morning, with the storm over, the trees look decorated for the holidays, don't they?

Tonight it's supposed to be 11 degrees. All of the animals are inside, including our semi-wild cat and our very shy barn cat. We are tucked in front of the fireplace, waiting for . . . Thanksgiving.

Happy Turkey Day, Everyone!

Remember, Christmas is just around the bend. And for all you book lovers, our giveaway of two Ginny Rorby books (scroll down to previous post) lasts until December 5th. And more book giveaways will follow soon. Books by Alison Hart, Cynthia Chapman Willis, and well, just keep tuning in here to find out, and win books for Christmas giving, or for just plain reading and enjoying.

Gobble, Gobble.

Wow! Being snowed in with that view doesn't seem so horrible. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Stay warm!

*GASP* It's so beautiful--makes me long for the cold and snow. Ha, and a fireplace to read by.

Take care and keep your babies warm.

I'm really late with this comment, but WOW, look at all that snow! It's beautiful, but I have to admit that I'm not ready for the white stuff yet. I hope Mother Nature gives me a couple more weeks. ; )
