A few snow pictures from this morning
Yes, from April 10! Sigh ...
I seem to really be falling behind with blogging these days; it's been a week! I have so much in mind that I want to blog about -- recipes, cleaning/decluttering projects, crafts I never got around to sharing photos of, recent happenings, and more -- but finding the time has been what's been difficult. I decided that for today I would just put up a quick post concerning our weather. These photos were all taken early this morning.

Wintry woods and stone wall
Driveway from the dormer
That triangular shape in the middle of the photo is a metal sawhorse that was used in putting wood in the cellar in late fall. It never got put away, and we've been using it as a benchmark to measure our snow accumulations. For the longest time we couldn't even see the top of this sawhorse, just its mounded shape. You can see that the snow has settled a bit since then, but this morning it's frosting the top of the sawhorse again!
I must confess I've been having trouble keeping this wintry weather in perspective. I actually told my husband this morning that this would be pretty in late November, but ...
Then I read what our friend Rand Hummel from The Wilds of New England wrote on Instagram this morning: "Although summer camp is only two months away, God is not finished
painting glorious winter scenes like He did this morning. Thank You
And thank you, Rand. What a great way to think about this morning's wintry scenes! That certainly altered my perspective. I almost never look at Instagram in the morning, but today I'm thankful that I did.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
