So Soft So Peaceful


It's finally stopped snowing now in our part of Arkansas. Not sure if this is the last of it or more is expected. Either way, it was so soft and so peaceful while falling. We ended up with around 6-8 inches of the pretty white wet stuff. Perfect for making snowmen and snowballs. Late yesterday evening Trucker and I took a brief walk outside to enjoy the flakes falling on our faces, heads and tongues. It felt so good to be out of the house even if briefly. We acted like a couple of kids and threw snowballs at one another, took some pictures and just listened to the complete quiet of our neighborhood. That's one thing I really love about snow! The world around us stops, stands still and becomes so quiet and peaceful. Not a single sound when you go outside. It's almost surreal.


I've been working on the progress of the end tables and today I will hopefully finish at least one of them up and be able to show the finished project later this week. Here's what I've got so far.




For now....I'm safe, warm and cozying up to Trucker.

I know what you mean about the snow and the quietness being surreal. That's the best of the snow. Unfortunately the world intrudes and the snow gets dirty and then we wish for spring! LOL Thank you for stopping by junkblossoms. We always enjoy your visits. Stay warm! Pat

We live in Tn. and got about 4 inches on Monday. It was a gorgeous snow. And since we did not have to get out in it, it was lovely to love at.

Thanks so much for stopping by on Blue Monday and leaving a note. These are our grandchildren. We call them our "baby grands" and we are quite smitten with their adorable yumminess.

Hope you have a great week and hope to see you again on Monday.

Stop by anytime. Blessings.
