Snow light....

The snow has gone and the skies are pewter grey again....rain and warmer temps have returned,
but I'm remembering the light inside when the world outside was a hush of deep white.
There's something quiet about the reflection of snow...
Ruben has picked the best spot in the house and sleeps here on the bed all day...
Outside the bathroom window a veil of ice grows by the melting during the day and the 
freezing cold at night...
From one day to the next the swords of ice grew at least a foot...
It's times like these I am ever grateful of my warm house and wood stove...
Some of my lovely birthday gifts take on the softness of snow light...
 ...this year I was lucky to get not one, but two bird paper weights!
Out in the barn, the old window catches the luminous glint of snow through its warbled glass...
 ...evidence of little visitors on the porch...
Time for a few more photos and then back inside for a big cup of tea...

Reuben so DOES look like Tennessee. I started just a little when i first saw his picture there! Gorgeous kitty. And your pics of your pup make me grin from ear to ear.. :D Your birthday paperweights are lovely indeed. This post has made a great morning all the better! Thank you. :)

I love the way you have woven this story from cold to cozy to icicles to glass, inside outside... Just beautiful. So glad I took a quick trip just now to the computer to take a look-see at who has blogged this afternoon.

I hope you had a good birthday, such a wintery birthday too. Icicles fit for a Snow Queen.

And i forgot to ask earlier.. are those agates in the bottle on your sill? They.. (whatever they are) are beautiful. They capture the light so well.
