Pretty snow

I know what you’re thinking… what the hell is she talking about? Wasn’t she complaining just yesterday that all the snow and gray skies were so depressing and a much-needed yarn therapy was in order? Yeah, okay, you got me… but after I posted that complaint I was surprised and delighted with a gorgeous sunset last night. Now I’ve seen my share of beautiful sunsets from our apartment because of our view but this one in particularly stuck me as amazing because it was snowing at the same time! That’s right, we had snowfall AND a sunset. Now how often does that happen? And, of course, I had to document it… you know, because I was sure no one would believe me unless I did. 😉

As the snow turned into a flurry, a more respectable (though still pretty) sunset emerged!

Today we woke up to gorgeous blue skies and a bitterly cold morning that turned into an equally bitterly cold day. We didn’t let that stop us from having any fun, though, as our nephews were visiting us from California and a quick trip to the roof was definitely in order!

Snow on the Roof

Kubrick’s face up there? That’s how happy the dogs were to be on the roof! And, of course, they weren’t the only ones.

Are my nephews gorgeous or what? Too bad I can’t take credit for any family resemblance as they are my brother-in-law’s kids! But they do look a lot like my husband, so I guess I picked a good one. 😉

They had lots of fun playing in the snow… and so did the dogs!

What’s with kids constantly eating snow? LOL!

And then it got too cold to stay up there anymore and we headed downstairs… not before I got this one last shot of pretty, though!

Sun sets through

Hope your weekend is treating you well!
