Goings On...Back Home

Thanks to all who wished my well after my bout with gastroenteritis. People are being hit like gangbusters with "sudden vomiting and diarrhea"...we had a cheerleading competition here in WA and the cheerleaders were smitten--not pretty.

I'm now back from Atlanta, and wanted to share a few pictures and movies of the snow here from the last few weeks with you. These are before the subsequent wind and ice storm, before all the damage was done, when things were still pretty. I hope that you enjoy them...

This is our back porch:

Here's our woodshed seen out of the bedroom window. Can you see the little towers of snow on the tops of the posts?

Here's my car covered in the snow:

You almost can't recognize the front of the house:

This is a 29 second video in which I try and fail to capture snow falling from the trees. It's still so beautiful...

It came out a little small, and the quality isn't what I'd like. I'll work on this :) It's impErFect!

And in this 26 second video you can feel the stillness...the only sound is that of the chimes.

Peace and love to each one of you...I am glad to be back and to see you here!

The snow is so magical O! Like the land of Narnia in the story books!

We do get snow here in Australia, but not in the temperate zone I live in. I love the quietness of it. Thre must be no echo where snow has fallen (?)

I'm sure I would behave like a bear and find a cosy place to sleep through it all, till Spring :)

Glad you are feeling better!!
That's ALOT of snow. It's pretty in the trees.
We had a little dusting of snow last night but it melted quickly. We'll probably get more snow later in the month. I'd actually like it to be a little colder because I've had a sinus thing on and off since before the holidays and maybe it's because the weather has been more mild this season?

Welcome home!

Everything you share about your area makes me like it more and more. No snow! It is beautiful, but...temperate is more what I enjoy now.

I never thought about it, but I don't think that there is an echo. Part of what contributes to that sense of quiet.

It is kind of magical...Peace and love to you, Patti, I hope you have a wonderful day, xoO

Olivia said...

Thanks, Mary--isn't it weird to see that here and not back in the Northeast where you are? So strange. Boy, you'd love it here...hope you get rid of your sinus issues, Blessings and joy today, Mary, xoO

Olivia, I just can not get over how much snow you have, even though our weather has been cold here, hardly any snow, unheard of for this time of year. I hope you are feeling better and over your illness. flu is going around here as you described, so far we have been lucky. Thanks so much for the link to Rebeccas site. I read quite a bit on there last night and sent her an email. It was nice to find someone that has faced similar things. She strikes me as a very courageous woman, so thanks for that. The post I read she had crystals hanging in the window which were almost identical to mine I posted yesterday. ....You have a most lovely setting for your home. Hugs to you dear friend.

Olivia said...

Thank you, Cinner. I am so glad you're in contact with Rebecca. She is an angel. Much love to you, xoO

Thats the kind of snow that would not be unusual here but where you are it must have been so hard to deal with. Glad to know you are doing ok.

Olivia said...

You're right, Kate. Our infrastructure just isn't up to it. I'm glad it's over :) Peace, love, joy, xoO
