a day with snow

It's been a while since I've walked through 'blog-land'. My life has been full of good things, and a couple of misadventures. All is mostly well, and I hope everyone else is having a break from issues or troubles. And don't we all need a break?!

For about a month I thought I might be in love. Yes your's truly, 'dcrelief,' looking through those pesky rose colored glasses. I had my mind's eye fixed on a large box of chocolates. Might I also receive a romantic valentine card??? Alas, the cheap trick fooled me. Anyone wanting to write me a 'poor baby' comment is most appreciated. Boo-hoo, if that makes it easier.

I'm sitting here typing whatever comes to mind. Hold on... (fight the blank)... I'm back.

Friday evening it began to snow, oh my, what a beautiful snow. Sorry houseless people but it was so lovely watching those huge flakes kick in. The photo is of the park near me, but I took it some time ago. My camera is still on the fritz. It's kinda tough because this snow was even prettier than then. According to the news we got three inches. Not bad, but the streets were clear and the meltdown began the next morning.

Is it me or does this sound a bit lacking in energy??! I loved it. Tossed out lots of seeds for the birds and they were everywhere. All colors... something I don't normally see in winter.

I'll get back to that 'cheap trick' another day... it's a story. xx


  1. Hi Dixie. You thought you were in love with a box of chocolates? Did I get that wrong? Probably.
    Snow always looks so darn pretty but after a few days it's usually "OK, that's enough now, thank you".
    Can't wait to hear your story!

  2. Certainly not, Bazza. When there's no male to hang out with, a box of chocolates is the next best thing.

    Oh you're right about days of snow. This will be completely gone in 24 hours or less.

    Really, you want to hear the story of the cheap trick male?!! Okay, will work on it. :))

  3. Hey Dixie,

    You have been missed and I was about to send out a search party.

    I hope that large box of chocolates was real chocolate and not that glorified wax they try to sell y'all over there :) You, dear lady, should have got a truckload of Valentine's Day cards. That and a romantic candlelit meal.

    Nothing like a bit of snow to change the ambience. Then, the next day you get the dreaded slush. I hope your story of a cheap trick has a positive outcome.

    Thank you for commenting on my posting, Dixie. I'm getting to know the hospital real well. And no, don't you "poor baby" me.

    Peace and you behave yourself :)


  4. Lost in Space, hello! It was so quiet coming down... soft silence. That you so much for coming over. See you soon. :)

  5. Thanks, Gary. Wow, a search party would have definitely been more fun!
    I really wanted those Bavarian chocolates shaped like seashells; they melt in your mouth.
    No cards this year ~ win some, lose some ~ divorce some.
    Gary, I hope things go well with you. And may somebody else pay the bills!

    Happy Belated! xx

  6. I've been disappointed this year as everywhere else in England seems to have had snow other than where I live in Cornwall.

    There's something special about the first moments of snow: the silence and peace and then those crunchy first footsteps - magical.

    Take care,

  7. Mike, you definitely have the magic of description. I know what you mean though... a unique feeling that permeates one's entire being. Hope that doesn't sound hoakey!!

    Winter hasn't left yet. lol.

  8. wow you are living in wonderland, such a lovely photo. Congrats :).

  9. Hi unikorna!

    This place is enchanting all year. Wish you could see it and walk the many miles of trails. Oh and spooky stories too!!
    Thank you for visiting... glad the photo did it for too. :)xx
