Snow, Christmas parade and Cozy

Hello again my friends. I hope you are all having a wonderful day. My day has been ok. Been snuggled up on the couch most of the day as I have came down with a cold. I know I will feel better in a few days so snuggling on the couch watching movies, playing on the internet, and crocheting is perfectly fine with me.

Today has been a really good day to snuggle on the couch too. The weather people around here have been predicting snow for over a week now and today is the day it came.
 Can you see it in this picture? Well I know you can see the snow on the ground but can you see the snow falling?

 Here you can see it falling is this picture in front of that old barn. I love the way the snow is coating the shrubs. So wintery, so beautiful.

In spite of the snow, our little town had a little Christmas parade today. It was a tad chilly so it was good that the parade isn't that long.
 We missed the very first float of the parade (finding hats and gloves for 4 littles). Since our house is pretty much on the parade route, I did manage to get a distant picture of the band marching down the road.
 And a distant piture of a float. Good thing they were all bundled up.
 Here is a float of Queens, Princesses, and their attendants.

 And of a guy on a horse. Do I spy some wise men?
 I just love this old racin car.

 And of course, Mr and Mrs Claus riding on our firetruck. Aren't they just a sight? I bet the weather here is nothing like what can be found in the North Pole.

 Oh yes this lovely picture. A couple blog posts back I was talking about getting an electric fireplace. Oh I have wanted a fireplace (of any kind) for so long. So we finally went to our local home store and bought the fireplace. We brought it home and I put it together (the hubby gets quite angry when putting things together). Anyway, the above picture is of the Christmas decor on top of the fireplace. The little tree in the middle is a real tree. I also found it at the home store. It is so cute!

This is where the cozy comes in. Here is my fireplace. I love, love, love it. It has a heater also so it's almost like sitting by a real fire minus the smoke, embers popping, and fire hazards. I can sit and stare at it for hours. Did I mention that I love it?

I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse into my day. I hope you all are staying warm!
Until next time my friends, Be Blessed.


  1. Hey its better than TV..your imagination can create alsorts in the fire log burner is crackling as we speak..and smells delicious..i'm gonna huggle up with a good book and some hot choc and drift away!!!

  2. Thank you for sharing your snow and parade pictures. I really miss watching the snow fall this time of year. I'm going to have a sand colored Christmas.

    I really like your fire place too. It looks so cozy. D insists on assembling things around here and he never reads the directions, then gets angry when it doesn't go together right. I wish he would just let me do it. The whole man pride thing, though.
