Freezing Point Friday...

I opened the front blinds this morning, and was surprized at what I saw! It was like someone had just given the trees permission to unload themselves of their leaves!!!

First photo was taken at 10:00am, and the second one at 11:00am...
The tree is nearly bare of all leaves in one night!!!
And just now, 1:30pm the wind has started and getting stronger, so more will be coming down all over town... AND it is snowing...













I don't like the cold... Besides feeling like I've missed summer, now, with being sick all September and yesterdays bit of snow, I feel like I have also missed Fall. My favorite time of year!

I've managed to visit and comment on quite a few of your blogs yesterday. My but you've all been busy bees!!! I will do some blog hopping a bit to day too, but I think it is time I tackle a sewing project, and figure out what I shall work on at this month's end weekend retreat!!!

Go and check out Rosaline's blog Samadhi for some eye candy and inspiration! 8-)

Happy stitchings everyone!
Myra





Edit: Update photos... Snow dusting photo at 3pm
Snow covered ground 4:30pm...

The good thing about trees loosing their leaves in one day it make raking leaves a lot easier. I can't believe you've had snow. Wow!

Had to scratch the ice of my car windows this morning. Mostly that's around january so winter is early all over the globe I guess. Hate it too:I'm not an ice and snow girl either. Great cadillac! My fil had one and he drove everywhere with it. I hope your dad has as much fun and pleasure with it as my fil had!
