Picture Postcards – Inside and Outside
It’s been snowy and icy here since Sunday. And we’ve got another round of snow predicted tonight – up to three inches where I live. I’ve been out of the house twice since Sunday. Once my daughter drove me to Joann’s so that I could pick up a pattern on sale, and yesterday I went out to dinner. I’m going a tad stir crazy and in desperate need of some exercise.
So, I decided to do a couple things during my “lunch hour” today. (Since I work from home I really don’t have a lunch hour, but I do like to take an official break midday sometime and step away from the computer.)
While taking my break, I thought it would be fun to capture a few photos of the winter and holiday season here in my neck of the woods.
First, some inside shots of decorations we have here and there around the house. Definitely makes it feel cozy and festive.
Door knob whimsy
Definitely NOT feeling like this dude this year. We love the Grinch though because my oldest is the original Cindy Lou Who.
Speaks for itself. Believe it or not, my mother gave me that bear a few seasons back. LOL.
Stockings ready – even for the pups. We made their stockings. Can you tell? 😉
The Tink Girl must have her own tree.
Hanging by the back door….
Giant ornaments. My youngest cracks up every time she describes these. I have no idea why. 😉
Doorbell warnings. This cracks me up too.
Even the office gets decorated. Does yours?
And for outside………..
Poor puppies – I wonder if their little toes get cold.
The first snowmen I’ve seen outdoors all season. I suspect it’s just been too cold for most kids. The one on the right looks like a pig, though. Strange nose.
A little winter holly
Views from the local high school about a mile from me. Boy was it windy up there. But seriously. How can a high school kid focus on anything when there’s that spectacular view? Ya, probably they’re not busy looking out the windows right?
Now, for some hot cocoa and back to work.
