elsewhere they suffer rains, whereas here we suffer not, but work


when praying for snow, in hopes of a soft cover over three inches of ice from the oh-so-gentle-looking ice storms…when praying for snow in order that one might go skiing or snowshoeing…please don’t tell anyone i did this…as a lot of tax money has been spent plowing roads…and businesses have had to close temporarily…yet everyone seems merry if you chance to meet….

So please watch what you pray for.


here i gaze down on the clothesline. in summer i have to reach high to hang clothes.


this is what happens when one is frivolous enough to ask the maker of stars and galaxies and planets for snow. and you see why i don’t want you telling. ♡  (in part because R. has to dig out the car. Again. Fortunately he’s not keeping up with this blog just now. He’s got another.)


this is me.


this is ours




then today….


this is what you guess, two of them.


shh… don’t tell….


…a bit more on the subject of God’s snowfalls.

  1. I was talking recently with the headteacher at a local school here in Worcestershire on a day when we had the lightest of dustings of snow and we realised as we spoke that the younger children had never seen a proper snowfall and even the children up to 8 or 9 years old had not seen one since they were very small and so before conscious memory for most of them. How very sad.
    I hope that, just as with the breaking of the California drought, there will come a day when the snow will fall thick around us again and that we will enjoy the same smiling faces that you describe.

  2. I knew the big storm was headed your way–I heard online that Colby College closed, which it apparently never does. Your clothesline looks enchanting in the snow–all the clothespins look like little birds. I love when a storm makes everything *stop*
