Winter's Dream

While we have had a great deal of fun in the snow....
Some of us more than others:-)

It's that time of year when I start wishing for warmth and the opportunity to dig in the dirt~
But with many more winter days still to come, I will have to console myself with reading and dreaming about this year's garden.

Of course when Mother Nature throws us a few teaser days, like today... 60's and sunshine, that just happen to coincide with my off days, I'll be running out the door as soon as the first rays hit the sky.
Hope your Monday is Sunny~Rhonda

Snowy Smokies

When you live in the South, experiencing snow is pure magic. It puts a grin on your face from ear to ear and makes you giggle like a child. No matter what you have planned, everything is put on hold so that you can go out and simply play in the snow:-)

This was the view from the bedroom window of the cabin yesterday morning ~sorry about the screen markings~ Can you see the top of the mountain covered in snow?!

My little guy made his first snow angel...

Look out Dad!! This one has your name on it.

And just so you know, a snow disk makes for a pretty handy shield when Dad decides to retaliate:-)

Of course, all too soon it was time for us to depart Winter Wonderland and head back to reality.
But the drive home was nothing less than spectacular....

See what I mean~~

I don't know what was colder, us or the water.

This was the view from the top of New Found Gap, looking back across the valley.

Eventhough the temperature outside was quiet frankly beyond FRIGID we had to stop at the top and play for just a few minutes.

The King of Clingman's Dome and his popsicle parents hope you are starting the New Year off playing and making memories with your loved ones:-)
