Sugar-coated garden

Pixel doesn't know what to make of the backyard today. The last two days have been snowy here in Edmonds. A slow but constant snow flurry. I love the way the snow muffles all noises and makes it seem like you are in another world, a quiet one without distractions.

the baby doesn't know what to make of the stuff

The entire yard seems sugar-coated.

Even me! My hair blends right in.

Mom and I braved the bad roads and made T-day grocery run. Now it is all cooking and cleaning for the next couple of days! While D treats us to 'vinyl' music: "Mother's Best Radio Show" with Hank Williams and a jazz version of My Fair Lady.

Great picture of you. Your hair is stunning! Seems to me a while back you were trying to figure out how to grow out the color gracefully. With silver hair like yours I hope you never color it again.

I was thinking the same thing about the blooming hydrangea (cute avatar, Peruby :). Agreed on the gorgeous hair, Kim! Really love the second pic.
