Thursday’s ‘Cold’ Windows


For Sandra Conner’s ‘Thursday’s Windows’, I took a few pics from inside the house, after our slow drive home from the mall, yesterday afternoon. The houses across the road looked so pretty in the snow.

The play house in the back yard, the scene of so much fun in the summer months, must feel very abandoned in the winter.

The garden furniture gets no “bums on seats” either. πŸ™‚

The next door neighbour’sΒ  house looked very cosy through the playroom window.

There was a bit of work to be done on the driveway, after dinner.

Lastly, here is another couple of store windows which we saw in New York on Christmas Eve.

  1. Oooooooh I love the park bench with the small tree and the book store window shots. Very cool. Here in Southern California no snow … yesterday sunshine about 60 degrees … today wet.

  2. These shots are perfect… Boy I really don’t like winter… I need a warm weather vaca! I keep dreaming I’m visiting your blog… what’s up? πŸ˜†

  3. Caught up at last with all your travels and the excitement of Christmas – particularly Santa and the snow! How lovely for you to be all together with a house full of children! Seems you’re having a perfect Christmas – though come to think of it, is that -3F or -3C? πŸ™‚

    • Yes, -3 Centigrade. It is lovely to be all together, but the cold is something I’m not used to. At least the house if nice and warm, but there’s talk of going into the city this evening. Brrrr!! 😯

  4. Wow, the last few posts are enough to make my teeth chatter, AD. From here, all nice and warm, it is hard to imagine how cold it must be! Love your pics.

  5. A sense of stillness and ‘everything on hold ‘ with your Snow pictures AD …
    Love the shop displays with the Papercut work πŸ™‚

  6. As long as I’m warm and cozy, I’m just fine looking out the window. Your 4th photo looks like a Currier and Ives and everything looks peaceful and still. Safe travels to you as you come back to FL which is chilly at the moment.

  7. Somebody has said that snow is like friendship .. it softens everything it falls on.
    Great winter shots – pretty, cold and hearty.

  8. I do miss snow, always so nice looking out on it from a warm cosy house. That snow blower your son has is a pretty neat piece of kit Sylvia. Smashing post as always. Keep warm! πŸ™‚

  9. The snow machine is a better idea than an ordinary ol’ shovel!
    I wish I could actually feel that cold instead of just seeing it.
    Another hot and humid day here, but a little quieter with some of the holiday makers gone.

    • Yes, a snow blower is an essential piece of equipment if you live here. πŸ™‚ Glad the Vallies are starting to leave. You’ll be able to get your parking space at the mall again. πŸ™‚
