Snow-What's New With You?

Hi everyone! I'm happy to be joining Tablescape Thursday and A Few Of My Favorite Things today! I love oatmeal cookies and you know how I feel about Earl:@) I've been doing quite a bit of shoveling recently-over 8" of snow again last night...
and you know, just to keep my strength up, I thought I'd have a snack...
The table on my patio this morning.
Now, the snow is fun for kids of all sizes and ages and Earl couldn't wait to get outside. 
He asked if he could go sledding, I said for a little while-
gotta get the lid back on the jar of peanut butter before it drys out:@)
Unfortunately, pigs can't hold a shovel!!!
Have a happy day:@)

PS-Remember these guys?
Yea... that's enough snow for one year!

  3. That is what our table outside looks like too....well before the last storm and it completely disappeared! YOur pig is very cute and I don't blame him, I wouldn't shovel either.

  5. Earl looks to be having a great time. Our snow is really ice!! I think I'm ready to put away my snowmen also. I thought they would be cute, but now I'm done with them! Stay warm!

  12. So funny...I think all of Blogland has snow in common right now! If these keeps up we are going to be a grouchy group by spring!

  13. Ha...Earl is far braver than me or my cat...we do not venture very far. We are cabin feverish. Joe and I drove just 3miles to a Mexican place to eat last night and I was just giddy to get out....Just pitifil I am.

  14. Great post! Too bad pigs can't hold a shovel; perhaps your back wouldn't hurt so much. Oh wait, it's my back.

  15. Earl is such a sportsman. Those cookies look yummy.

  16. With that kind of snow, not much you can do. Staying in by a fire, snacking on cookies and coffee would suit me fine.

    ReplyDelete
  17. 8 "! Wow. I haven't seen snow like that in over 30 years. We're slap happy if we get a dusting around here.

    And you and your pig...
    You're such a nut.

  18. Lynn, I'm worried that Earl is going to slip on the ice! Earl, you be careful, you hear???

    Love your tablescape, and I want a cookie SO bad. I fixed "one" earlier, and now I want another. I'm trying to limit myself. Of course the fact that I chased it with some mac and cheese (the whole pan) doesn't help. Cold weather makes me EAT! ;-)

    I love that shot of your outdoor table. That's gorgeous, and I want your white china! So pretty!

    Happy Tablescape Thursday...

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  19. I'm in NE Ohio and it's still snowing here. We have about a foot! Another month of this and I'll be thinking I sold the wrong house! (I used to have a house on Anna Maria Is in FL but opted to live up North where I grew up!)

  20. Very cute. I have the same outdoor table.

  21. I think we are finished with snow too. The cookies look yummy.

  26. Earl should have a fine time in all that snow! Will he get some hot chocolate to go with the cookies when he comes in from the cold?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow...8 inches! We only got 6 here which is bad enough. The nation is really getting pounded, isn't it? I'm glad you can find the humor in it all! Makes it a whole lot easier to take! Have a wonderful week!

  28. Now that's what I call a boatload of SNOW...hope it gets better for you soon:)

  31. I'd need a bigger snack than that were I to shovel that much snow! Love the snackset though..

    ReplyDelete
  32. Our table has looked like that for weeks! It almost screams to be set with some dishes doesn't it! My snowmen can't retire (unfortunately) for a long time. We have had record snows, but at least today it was sunny.

  33. Love the pics of Earl playing in the snow. The snack set is great!

  36. It's amazing this year how we here in Michigan are not the snow bunnies of the states. Right now there are many many places up and down the east coast that have more snow than what I have even considering our lake effect. Thanks for sharing your winter pictures with us.

  39. Lynn, You and Earl are "snow" silly! This weather in the States is wonky! I am so ready for spring and warm weather, let me tell ya! I don't like Ohio winters at all. Give me New Mexico, where I grew up, any old day. It snows, the sun comes out and melts it, and it's beautiful again. We enjoyed all four seasons in northern NM, and I wish I was still there. Stay warm! ~ Sue

  40. Lynn...if there is any danger of the peanut butter drying out, I'd say we should dip the cookies in it. EVERY thing is better dipped in peanut butter. Looks like Earl is having fun :)

    Blessings!

  41. Earl, all dressed for sledding, is just soooo cute! Wow! That photo of your patio table is incredible. I'm soooo glad we don't have to shovel that much snow - I'd be so tired, I wouldn't have the strength to get the cookies on a plate. Speakiing of cookies - yum! Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie
