Frosty Mittens....

Another Nor'Easter hit us big today. Dropping inches upon inches of blowing  snow.  As a matter of fact almost two feet of it. The snow blower has been cranking and sputtering all morning.  The shovels are bending with the weight of the fresh falling snow.  Just take a look at my frozen mittens.   Frozen from hours of back breaking, muscle cramping shoveling.  Shoveling while brutal winds from the northeast whip against my face like little needles.

Oh, did I say whipping against my face?  I'm so sorry I meant to say my husbands face.  These frozen mittens are from playing with the dog. I am going to bring in this short stack of wood for a fire though. As soon as my frosty mittens thaw out and dry.

  6. When I first saw the lovely frozen mittens I couldn't help buy think about the delightful Jan Brett book, "The Mitten". Stay warm!

  8. Ditto on poor boy, here! Silent Bob has been running the snowblower off and on all day! My contribution was making hot soup and a warm tart! Too blustery for me! Tomorrow, I'll bundle up, trundle outside, re-stock the birdfeeders, and play with our Corgis. Today, it was all about the fire and a warm kitchen!

  9. Oh what a good husband, out there shoveling away :) Thank goodness for good husbands. I bet things are so cozy at your house tonight, with a fire, snow peppering down. I love snow and I can’t really imagine big, giant snows like you all get ongoing. Stay warm.
    Hugs, Amy

  10. Hehe, my husband has been on doggie duty so I've avoided going out in the cold and wind most of the day! You guys got hit badly, we just got a light coating of ice. I hope you are enjoying a roaring fire and a hot cup of tea right now!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  11. Love that mitten picture :) LOL, you got to play with the pup!

    My husband shoveled us out for three hours only to have the SMILING plow driver, put it all back at the end of the driveway when he passed by!

  12. Playing with the dog is a very important priority. Someones gotta do it. Snow outside, fire and you inside, sounds lovely.

  13. Love your mittens! You are lucky you didn't have to shovel. The snow was wet and heavy. Didn't they forecast light and fluffy stuff?

  14. Heehee that's so funny! Lucky you building a fire in the fireplace! How about some warm cookies to go with that? ;)

    I love your mittens, too!

  15. LOL, your poor hubby!!! Wait until he reads your post! Ha, ha, ha!!! Our snowblower ran for hours, hubby did yeoman's duty today! I did the path from the back door to the garage door to get him out and going! LOL!!! Dinner was a can of split pea soup from Trader Joe's - hey, it was exhausting shoveling that path! LOL!!!

  16. Hope you enjoyed the fire. That is what snowy days are all about - sitting inside by the fire looking at the snowy landscape outside with a mug of hot chocolate in-hand.

    Like your mittens!

  17. OMG I was just sitting here trying to get warm and then your mittens open up and I can just feel them touching me. Then I keep reading and with each word I am getting colder and colder. Darn we are sissy here in the south. hahaha
    Thank God you have a hubby.
    I definitely would if I lived there
    Love ya

  23. I sure hope you treasure that hubby of yours! Cold and snowy here in Missouri too, but I'll gratefully hang onto my 5 inches over several feet. Wow. Stay safe and warm!

  24. What a wonderful post...and a sweet hubby you have too, I'm sure. We don't get snow too often, and rarely enough to have to shovel it. We know about whipping winds though :-)
    Blessings,
    Marcia

  25. Your poor hubby, hehe... :) Your place sounds and looks really cold. I have low tolerance for coldness, I think.

  26. Giggle, giggle.. you have a wonderful sense of humor, my friend.. thanks for the smile :o)
    I now live and play in a 'no snow zone' but I came from the north so I can relate to your snowy thoughts.

    Warm hugs,
    Pam

  27. Charlotte (from Verde Farm) sent me over this morning to see what's going on in New England. Didn't Amy's chickens do a good job of posting yesterday?

    Your blog is delightful! I love the pictures of your mittens and your lab. My daughter has two yellow labs and they are wonderful!

    Stay warm!

  29. Oh my ...reading your post took me right back to my life in British Columbia where most days were spent shoveling and snow blowing our way out to the road or the wood shed. Love your mittens by the way! We have snow here in Kansas at the moment...I think you got the storm that passed through us but you got it much worse than us. In December I look forward to the white stuff (it was a green Christmas for us) but come the first of January I'm done. After living 30 years in the mountains of British Columbia and having to deal with 40-60 FEET of snow every winter...I don't miss the stuff. LOVE your home...the color is perfect and I love the shutters. That's a dream I have...to have shutters again. Thanks for stopping by this morning from Amy's (isn't she sweet!) and I will be stopping by often to visit you too. Have a wonderful weekend.
    Maura :)

  31. Your area got more snow than we did in NYC this time .. we "only" had a foot! :) I look at shoveling as a good upper body workout..I'll really get into shape this winter!

  32. Came by to say hi and thanks for your visit! Here I live in the middle of the state of Michigan where we usually have piles and piles of snow and everyone south east ans west of us are getting more than us. It has snowed for about 4 days straight but it has not added up to much so far. Hope you have a great weekend!

  33. your pretty pictures of snow covered logs and frosty mittens make me feel so cosy and snug, sitting here curled up with my laptop in a blanket, a warm drink beside me.
    we have just had days and days big plopping raindrops falling from slate coloured skies, i think snow is much nicer.
    thank you very much for your lovely comments.
    i am glad you like annA Amelia's work, i think it is really special and was so thrilled to win those postcards.

    wishing you a very lovely weekend

    stay cosy xxx
