So Much Snow!


the sun came out to light our world
hurray hurray


home sweet home in nearly two feet of snow
this week 
this week

(nearly wore me out plowing and shoveling
the good kind of being worn out that is followed by a hot bath and good sleep)


rivers are frozen 
held in shadows and light


snow capped posts falling to the side


something about looking down a river
that inspires the imagination to jump to life
a yearning to wander


and once in a while
sunset thrills us

  2. Bonjour chère amie,

    On se croirait transporté dans les contes de Grimm avec Hansel et Gretel avec cette adorable petite maison dans la forêt...
    Tes photos sont merveilleuses. Mais comme il doit faire froid pour que les rivières gèlent à ce point !!
    Je suis certaine que mon Icarus adorerait courir dans cette belle campagne.

    Gros bisous ♡

    1. oh yes, so worth going outside and it really is rather nice the past couple of days, not like the deep cold of last week.

  5. We have had a lot of snow also, in the past three days! We too had the tractor out to plow. When I got home from work today, I couldn't even tell that I had shovelled snow for 45 minutes last night? The wind chill has caused us to have many indoor recesses, and it is only day three of school since the holidays! Beautiful sunrises and sunsets here lately, too?

    I really like how the snow plied caps on the fence posts are starting to tilt in your pictures! "Romantic scenes, and as usual, delightful poetry!

    1. oh, i don't like it when i plow and shovel and an hour later there is no evidence of all the hard work. but we also know that we are keeping on top of it. our schools were closed for two days because roads were so bad. I like it when the snow begins to lean too. thank you for your visit Renee.

  9. Hello to you in this new year!
    I do love that first photo in its gorgeous simplicity! Your snowy world looks so gorgeous and so does your cabin! Love the snow-capped posts looking like chimneys with fluffy white smoke billowing over the top! I can only imagine all the work your shovelling and ploughing gives, but how gorgeous to soak in a hot bath afterwards. Mmmmm!

  10. whoa....TWO FEET of the white stuff....yikes......we had 10 to 12 inches and I was "kaputt" shoveling out the driveway......I think with two feet I'd probably be in the hospital:) You make winter look so beautiful though.

    1. yes, it is a lot of work to move snow around
      i slept so good that night, yea!
      but i did use a plow truck for the roads..... it is nice to have a break from moving snow for the last couple of days ;-)

      now to get a fire going and warm this little place up.
      lovely weekend to you!

  11. Such beauty ~ in the snow, the landscape, the nuances and the worn out place.
    And I love those leaning snow capped posts. They were my second focal point.
    And that sunset ... that sunset ...

  14. Such beautiful photos.
    That first image . . . all that minimal, powerful beauty.
    Your beautiful home looks so snug, wrapped under all that snow.
    Thanks for sharing.

  21. What a cosy home you have! In a remoted, quiet and unbelievably beautiful place! I believe you've spent many happy moments and hours, days and nights there. And am sure new ones are there to come! From the other hand you must be brave to live there and to recognize all the noises that you probably hear...
    Your photos show the beautiful winter fairytale you are living in! Let it last longer with more sunshine to sprinkle it and show the beauty of the season!
    Best wishes for healh and smiles, Tamie!xx

  23. What a beautiful winter you´ve got ! Here on the swedish westcoast we (almost) only have rain this winter. We notice the climate change very much. Thanks for the greetings. I paint sometime, only as an amateur. The local Art gallery asked me if I could do an exhibition and I said yes ! :-))
    So it will be both watercolours and photos!

  27. I cannot imagine anything more beautiful than living where, and how, you are. My dream has always been a log cabin in the woods by a river and the mountains lift your landscape beyond beauty. i long for real seasons. Lately we have had our spring and autumn cut out of the equation and keep veering between the extremes of summer and winter.
    So glad you are getting that brilliant, clear air sunshine.
