Child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, quilter, basket lover, amateur photographer, flower and vegetable gardener …….. some a little of who I am, some a lot of who I am, and all a part of me. When I started quilting several years ago, it sparked a passion in my creative side that I never knew existed. I fell in love with it from the very start. I love everything about it, from choosing the fabrics and designing the quilt until the time I finish the last stitch of the binding and everything in between.

And it snowed in October

Here is the view from my bedroom window this morning ....

The term "frost on the pumpkin" takes on a whole new meaning.  I think I would have preferred frost over the snow, especially since this is coming from Hurricane Sandy.
It is still snowing and it is a wet, heavy snow that accumulates fast.  It was 80 degrees here last week, so I am very surprised that it is sticking on the ground.  I guess it was cold just long enough that the snow did not melt when it started falling.  I just say that this first little snowfall in October is already more snow than we had all last winter.  We had one little snow that never even covered the ground.


  1. That looks like my yard last week, but it wasn't because of Hurricane Sandy. After watching newscasts of Sandy last night I have to say, I'd take the snow over flooding any day!
    Enjoy the winter wonderland while you have it. : )

  2. I know it is a little early - but there is just something about that first snow - Hope there is no damage from the heavy snow on the branches, etc.!! Good moisture, though!!!


  3. It's beautiful! Please reply to my comment as I'd like to ask you to help me help our friend Tonya....


I love hearing what you think!
