It’s a winter wonderland here in Michigan. We spent the weekend hibernating in our house to avoid the icy roads, and now the snow keeps coming! Usually once the holidays are past I am ready for the cold and snow to disappear, but there is something magical about waking up to inches upon inches of fresh snow. Unfortunately Miss Julia is not feeling very well, so we had a low key afternoon. We spent Tea Time Tuesday Snow Edition sipping hot cocoa and reading some wonderful snow poems.
The Snow Storm by Edna St. Vincent Millay
No hawk hangs over in this air:
The urgent snow is everywhere.
The wing adroiter than a sail
Must lean away from such a gale,
Abandoning its straight intent,
Or else expose tough ligament
And tender flesh to what before
Meant dampened feathers, nothing more.
Forceless upon our backs there fall
Infrequent flakes hexagonal,
Devised in many a curious style
To charm our safety for a while,
Where close to earth like mice we go
Under the horizontal snow.
This week we set up in our school room so our doggies could join us for a cozy afternoon. We kept things pretty simple… No homemade goodies this week! I picked up donut holes for our snack because they remind me of snowballs.
These two didn’t seem to mind our store bought goodies… Kenten went to friend’s house for the afternoon, so no donuts for him! Hopefully Miss Julia will be feeling better tomorrow. Poor thing spent most of the day in bed .
Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Snow Edition…
