It's been snowing most of the day... and it is lovely.
Not great for driving in... but awesome for sitting on the couch, reading a good book... and watching these huge fluffy snowflakes slowly gliding down to earth.

Things I am Grateful for Today:

--that the roses from my hubby on Valentine's Day are still gorgeous... and smell awesome
-snow shovels... and a husband who is willing to call shoveling out the driveway... and my mom's... his "work-out" for the day :)
-also... for my dear husband...  who shoveled a pathway in the 3+ foot snow drifts in our back yard so that our 15yr old dog could pee without getting buried in snow
-leftover roasted chicken, english muffins, and buttered corn
-lots of hot tea with fresh lemon wedges
-a stack of good books to read at my bedside
-antique wood chairs. I picked up 2 gorgeous old wood dining-type chairs at a local antique shop during their holiday sales... and LOVE them. A little wood glue in some strategic spots... and they will be perfect.
-green glass. I also picked up a stunning green depression glass orange juicer at the same sale... and we have some fresh oranges from the store... so I am anticipating some fab orange juice this week.
-this gorgeous winter light for photographing snow in :)
