SNOW!


The snow has arrived......aaaaa...YAYYYYYY!


so....I do believe 
"snowflakes are like kisses from heaven" - unknown 


"Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon,
the deeper it sinks into, the mind" - Samuel Taylor Coleridge


"The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white.
Neither need you do anything but be yourself "- Lao Tzu


"When he spoke, what tender words he used!
So softly, that like flakes of feathered snow,
they melted as they fell" - John Dryden


"The Eskimos had fifty-two names for snow because it was important to them:
there ought to be as many for love" - Margaret Atwood

Snow, Love, my neighbours and you!

Such is my world this last week of December 2012!

    1. Hi Jean....I have a friend called IngerDoodle, so if it's OK with you...I bestow upon you JeanDoodleNZ.....I kinda like it!!
      The snow was so wonderful to zooooom around in. You have to be careful so that you don't slip and twist your paw...as if that's never happened before.

      Hope your Holidays are full of Peace, Joy and Treats!

  14. Enjoy the snow and play around. The news said here that Eastern US and Canad will have snowstorm and lots of snow.....
    We had warm and the snow is melting away but only today we got -5C so the snow is hard. Tomorrow we get about +4 again.

    1. We had our first major snow fall all morning long. It descended upon us instantly like a curtain being pulled down. It fell for a few hours and then.....the RAINS came...yes the rains washed all our sins away. Now a green landscape again. Such is our Maritime weather.
