Our first winter white out of the season




  Winter weather has been early this year. Darn cold! Brrrrr
I know in other parts of the U.S. weather has been worse than where I live (different for a change) but it is still colder than normal much earlier this year. As if last years freeze out and record snow falls weren't enough, this year is starting to show signs of worse things to come. I'm not one bit happy about it either. As if you haven't noticed from me by now, cold weather and I do not mix! It has never been a favorite, not even as a kid, who many hope for snow days, I did not want the snow or cold, just the days off, LOL.

Below is some of November 24 winter white out in my area...


a few of our big pines heavy with wet frigid snow


heavy snow - winter white out photo image
 heavy snow looming menacingly over the edge our garage
 as if to snatch it up and crunch it


looking down our driveway from the upper doorway -
we had just gotten home from driving in this white out 
and our tire tracks are already covered


The good news is that we had enough sun and just barely over freezing temperatures to thaw it out and is no where in site. For the moment. As here in Wisconsin weather can turn around in a minute and slap you again.





Has winter reared its ugly
 head by you yet?


Until next time ...

Thanksgiving Wishes




 

   I am thankful that hubby and I are relatively healthy this year, that we have the blessings of a roof over our heads and running heat to keep us warm. Thankful for the humble meal we will share together.
Although are sons and their families are to far away for us to visit, we are thankful they are happy, healthy and always have our love.

What are you thankful for this year?
My wish for you ~ a wonderful Thanksgiving.

The Great Pumpkin Hunt!





  I have seen the fields and yards full of pumpkins,
    not to long ago.
Little kids and adults alike scurrying to and fro searching for the special gourd. A few brave Jack-O-Lanterns are still in view. Some just laying around sunning themselves in the sparse autumn sunshine, others trying hard to cling to the vine or hide behind dried crumpled foliage. The great pumpkin hunt has been going on for weeks and is slowing down as Halloween approaches.

Listen .. (okay, view really, LOL)
    to this frightening pumpkin tale below ...

hunted down in their prime and loaded onto carts


some divided from their pack and caged 
like the wild beasts they really are!

Is it too late for you?


Well there is always next year ...





 Until next time ...

Wombat Day 2014 !



It is here!
The tenth anniversary of Wombat Day! October 22, 2014.
So follow me and celebrate!


Who wants a big slice of chocolate cake and some winegums?


Lets stop over by Peter's " Wombania " site where all the wombies will be dressed in their party best. Where there will be lots and lots of chocolates of all kinds, winegums galore and more goodies than you can count!


I am heading over now, as I can never get my fill of delicious chocolate, YUM!
Those funny, playful wombies can eat fast, but are willing to share.




See you there ...



Until next time ...

HALLOWEEN in the Ladies Room ~





   The Ladies Room ~
     {overheard, laughs and snickers} Halloween edition

It is that spooky time of year,
when ghouls and goblins appear.
They haunt houses looking for treats and threaten tricks.
So what happens after they eat their fill???
Well, they head to the ladies (or gobbly-mens) room ☺

   






Ready for some naughty treats???



I don't have to worry about my "lead" foot with this beauty

Are you ready for Halloween?
(Only sweet treats means no tricks)
