old-fashioned . . .


That’s what they’re calling it here on PEI – an old-fashioned winter – which means snow, snow and more snow.

I like it – snow means sledding, snowmen, snowforts, snowball fights,  endless stretches of sparkling, pristine white, rosy cheeks, and oh, the moon on the snow – have you ever seen the moon cast shadows on the snow? That’s the time to go cross-country skiing.

I remember the snow reaching to the telephone wires in places.

I also remember sticking my tongue on the screendoor handle – ouch!

 I don’t know why I did that.

Did you ever? 

 Our New Year’s get together (or “doo” as my Mom used to call it) is at our next-door neighbours.  It’s a good thing! We may have to dig out the snowshoes to get there!!

Wishing you New Year blessings!

    Lovella my mom used to say things were "on the blink" too!K and Susanne – yes!I’m getting a lot of picture-taking in! I should look up some tips for snow-photos.


  3. Did you take those pics with your new camera? They’re great!I once licked a swing set in the snow. My tongue got stuck. It was painful and embarrassing but I think it’s a kind of rite of passage…maybe. Have a great New Year’s and Happy New Year from here!Love to you!K


  4. Oh yes we always called it a do too. Funny.Your snow pictures are just fantastic. We’re dry here today but the rain will be upon us soon enough. I’d take your snow anyday.Happy New Year!!
