Almost Wordless Wednesday

This week, I'm taking a break from my This Old House Series and instead, thought you might enjoy this view from our front door:



From This






To This


We didn't get a White Christmas but sure looks like we will be enjoying a White New Years!

Too Many Hats said...

Beautiful both ways! Amazing how that second one gave me the chills. Stay warm.

Cristina said...

We got the reverse! And then, we got a balmy day when all the snow melted.

My front lawn looks like it just woke up and is having a bad hair day.

I heart your WW pics.

We had two feet right before Christmas and I'm ready for it all to be gone. Yours, on the other hand, looks so pretty. Ours is now all brown :(

mama-face said...

I agree...you have a beautiful view no matter how you look at it. We're having the same type of weather...it's so cozy.

Oh, it IS beautiful! I am anticipating doing a similar post this week, as we have snow predicted twice in the upcoming days - already took my "before" picture - quite dreary, but the "after" should be spectacular!

glitterbygrammie said...

Awesome view. I love the snow.
We are getting hit ahrd today. I will take the kids out and shovel soon. WOOOOO HOOOOO

Corrie Howe said...

Lovely view. I so want to live that close to a water view...maybe even closer.

Buckeroomama said...

Wow! Every single day this week, J would say, "I wish it snows here in Hong Kong." He would dearly love to spend a snowy Christmas in Canada.

G-Zell said...

brrrr I am cold looking at it!

I wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas but I am late right LOL

So I am wishing you a Happy New Year!

Martha in PA said...

Lovely winter wonderland. I'm hoping for a white New Year, but probably not going to happen!

Happy New Year to the family (but I'll probably be commenting again before then!)

Lissaloo said...

How pretty, it looks like just the perfect amount :)

Working Mommy said...

I hope you don't get the 12+ inches that we got a few weeks ago!! It just mucks things up!

How beautiful. We got a surprise storm last night which was really odd and caused all kinds of problems since no one here is used to driving in it. We get it maybe once a year.

Hissyfits & Halos said...

I really hate the snow. It's pretty, but brrrrrr! We had a white Christmas, it all melted, and then it snowed again yesterday. Ugh. I miss summer. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pix. :)

Cinda said...

Snow...doesn't it remind you to appreciate the small moments of peace tucked into the holidays (and often hard to find)? Seattle came to a standstill last year with all our snow. And the mayor lost his job! Thank you for the beautiful pictures!

Melissa said...

We had a little snow right before Christmas, but the only thing it stuck to was my deck. LOL! The ground was to warm, but I was hoping for a white Christmas...no luck!

Heather @ Two Little Monkeys said...

That is a beautiful picture. We are supposed to get a few inches tonight.

VandyJ said...

I like it when it snows. Lovely view. Happy New Year!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Pretty. Have a wonderful New Year!

Sharon said...

Beautiful! Doesn't snow create a wonderful transformation? Hope your able to cozy up by a warm fire and drink cocoa!

The Mommyologist said...

Pretty!! I love the snow. It is supposed to snow all weekend here and I can't wait! Happy New Year!

CalgaryDaddy said...

Very Nice! AS a Canadian, you do get sick of the CONSTANT Snow though...but your view is really nice!

Anita said...

Is that a lake in the distance? Looks like a nice place to enjoy the outdoors - green or white! :)

yonca said...

They both are beautiful! Snow is completely gone here. Today I took a walk. It wasn't so cold. Lol, liked it.

Together We Save said...

I am so jealous!! I love snow!!

suzicate said...

staceyjwarner said...

Hey, i love snow no matter how much of a crimp it puts in my plans! That's so pretty.

Pearl said...

I hear ya! It all looks different covered in snow, doesn't it?!

Nikia, May and da kids said...

I can't afford the water view, so thanks for letting me look at yours.

I love the way snow looks in pictures. Happy white New Years!

Rebecca S. said...

Well, Deb, I've been looking for hints of just where you live in this great, big country of ours and I think I'm getting closer - especially after you mentioned the no-Sunday shopping rule! Our landscape looks just like yours today. Snowed all morning today after a green Christmas and then started to warm up and rain.
We went shopping on the 28th. We had promised to take my daughter to get new riding boots over the holidays, so we bit the bullet and faced the crowds. It wasn't too bad. Got a few cute cut-price Christmas items at IKEA, too! Cheers.

It's like someone just flicks a switch and turns off the color, isn't it?

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Beautiful view, with or w/o snow!
We just got home from being away 4 days and our snow is all gone.
