We woke to snow, snow and a little bit more of snow. This is the bird bath with a layer of snow.
The deck chairs and table seem to be holding a snowy conversation.
The mountains are layered here and just a mile or so down the road in town, there was only about an inch. Measuring the snow this morning on the deck, it was eight inches. Just right for a nine year old and her ten year old friend to sled, make snow angels, and build snow buildings. They could also walk to visit each other. A good recipe for home made cocoa according to Maggie. 2 Tablespoons cocoa 2 Tablespoons sugar a little salt Mix together in a mug. Heat 1 - 2 cups of milk. I used the microwave. Mix the two with 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. Add marshmallows. It is very rich and add milk according to your chocolate preferences.
