Callie Magee Antiques
I am a collector of old things. Some of them I sell to others who like me
want to preserve these old memories for the next generations.
"The older the ruin, the greener the moss.
the older the friendship, the keener the loss."
from the Seven Hundred Album Verses c1884
We woke yesterday morning to a blanket of snow. My aunt said 3 inches. Not had that confirmed though. She is usually pretty accurate but since this is the first good snow we have had in years,
I hesitate to shout it from the rooftops just yet.
My husband and I stayed home all day in jammies and robes. That was really nice. We did not go to the store or open it at all. No one in their right mind would have been out shopping for antiques is my excuse.
Above is the ST Francis statue in our front yard. His basket is full of snow.
And also in the front is the cherub. He is having fun in the snow.
Pictures to follow are of the grandkids at their own homes playing in the snow :
LJ in this picture. He said hot when he touched the snow for the first time in his 18 months life.
And Jayleigh and Lane with expressions of happiness on their faces. Their first snow also.
From the den window: my herb garden just finished and planted in Sept. It is under all that but there is a layer of landscaping material. Hope it survives.
So maybe to you this is a lot of time spent on nothing, but let me tell you we do not often get snow here in East Texas so to us it is a big thing. A time out if you will.
It is rare for us to get this much snow here in Huntsville Texas but this morning we
woke to a white scene. This out my window in the den.
We did not go to the store today but took a snow day. All the county and city offices are closed as well as schools.
Grandchildren who live locally:
LJ right. His first snow and he said "hot".
Jayleigh left and Lane right.
It was nice for us to have a snow day also. Kids pictures were all posted to Facebook by their mothers from their own homes.
Below is our own yard:
And here also:
While we enjoy this brief experience, we would not like to see it every day. Tomorrow it is back to work.
The change of pace is good for us. Memories of the last snow we had when the kids parents were having fun in it like these are. Memories are all we have that can't be taken from us. Have a good day!!
Sorry I am not posting as often but I have lots of other things going on in my life. I will be back!! Got to go start cooking now for Thanksgiving. We have all the family coming again this year. So enjoy your day with your own families. Lois
Not sure where I found the picture on my header of the pumpkins. I usually look for something under free images so this is probably what I did last year.
