The climbing rose is under the protection of the porch.

The new screened in back porch is not very inviting right now.

It seems the snow followed me home from Colorado! We had a magical, soggy, wet snow last weekend and THEN this weekend we had an ice storm. January of 2013 is turning out to be very...   WINTERY! We get very excited in Tennessee when we have any kind of frozen weather and when the weatherman predicts one flake of snow people RUSH to the grocery store to pick up bread and milk. Snow is slippery and fun, but ice is just scary and dangerous. Even my little dog, Smokey, fell down our front stairs when his feet hit the ice. Luckily he is very close to the ground so he did not get hurt. It did take several days before he would go down the steps by himself. ;-)
Here are a few comparison photos of the snow and ice.

This last shot was just to remind us all that spring is coming.

While all of this frostiness was going on outside, I decided to bring a few flakes inside. Soft, fuzzy flakes in the form of yarn!!! Here is a sneaky peak!

I hope you are able to enjoy this wintery weather wherever you are, and God bless you!

Keystone Colorado

We have returned from a week of skiing in Keystone Colorado. Well... my hubby and son skied.... I CROCHETED! I made fuzzy snowflakes made of yarn.

I am not good at skiing. I get very scared and panic and stiffen up.  If you ski you know what that means... FALLING. I did venture out for walks everyday and took some pretty pictures of this beautiful ski resort. Enjoy...

It is truly a beautiful place and I highly recommend visiting any resort in Colorado. It is magical in winter but also great to visit in summer. They have mountain biking and hiking trails and take riders up to the top on the ski lifts.

I hope your having a wonderful New Year and have been able to see some winter weather in your area. Thank you for stopping by for a visit today.
