A Five Day Weekend and a Glimpse of Light . . .

Here, in New York, it's been a very snowy week.  Add subzero temps (with the windchill factor) to the mix and you have a good recipe for a five day weekend off from school!!  Technically, it was a three day weekend, a half day of school and then another snow day but I let the boys stay home for that half day.  Yes, I am a pushover and I remember how exciting it was to have a snow day when I was a kid!!!  : )

Yet another photo outside my front window.  Haven't had much of a chance for anything else lately!!
A tree in our front yard that my first husband planted a couple of months before he passed away.  I say a prayer for that tree every time we have bad weather!!  : )

I saw this little guy peeking his head out and was lucky enough to catch a photo.  Sometimes I think the squirrels pose for me.  They're definitely not camera shy!!  I guess they're used to me at this point since I've been taking photos out of my back window for thirteen years now!!!  : )
I love to feed the wildlife in our backyard.  I'm rewarded with photos like this one.  Such a beautiful little winter bird.

 Rumor has it, we're expecting snow again on Saturday and then again on Monday.  I have to admit that I love it.  It makes me feel like a little kid again.  I've been doing a lot of cooking and the kids have been baking and the candles are lit in the windows when the sun goes down.  The days are starting to become noticeably longer now so there is a light at the end of this winter tunnel.  I'll be ready for spring but, for now, I'm happy right where I am.  : )

Many blessings for a beautiful Thursday ~ Wendy

Wow, you are snowed in! I used to love that when I was a kid.
Great photos, especially the pink winter light behind the tree and the little bird. Winter is so beautiful....
