Wondering Wednesday

Mr. Santos home for a "snow day"

Hours making snow forts 
(mother watching from the warmth of the cottage)

Sledding, sledding and sledding. 

Dripping wet snow suits hanging over the tub

Wet mittened hands around mugs of  hot chocolate

Oatmeal cookies made

School work done quickly and without enthusiasm 
(only to get out to the sledding hill again)

Chapters read from Little House on the Prairie

Old westerns watched with Dad
(the good guys won)

Mashed potatoes and gravy

Smoke filled kitchen from burned toasted pumpkin seeds

Beautiful rosy cheeks on beautiful bundled up children


What did you do today?

 our backyard today

 Biscuit and Penny in their basket.  They don't like the snow.

This is Penny (short for Companion) She is our new chicken.


  1. Sounds like you had an eventful day. I liked the one picture of the trees in the snow. Looks so pretty.

  2. Loved it... absolutely *loved* your word-picture :) Sadly, no snow here, and you made me want it more than ever with your talk of sledding, reading, cozy sofas, winter food, love, family, fun....
