Going, Going.......NOT Yet!

We live across a small mountain but when it snows it is a very dangerous road.
I heard that it will probably be closed until the rain comes in to melt the ice and snow.
Evidently that car coming slowly down the hill didn't read the signs on the other side of the mountain.

This is what is left of my okra down in the garden!
I had some drying on the plants.
I think I am a little late!!!
It is not dry now!

We border a watershed lake down at the foot of our property.
It is a  very pretty lake but the beavers have it dammed up right now
 so it looks like a swamp now.
Before we bought this property we came and fished in that watershed lake.
It was me, "Sweet Hunter" and our friend Eddie. 
We have been here 15 years and I think "Sweet Hunter" & a friend has fished it one time since.

Everybody needs a barn!
We love ours!


We have stocked our pond with catfish for our Grands!!!
I don't think we will be fishing in this frozen pond anytime soon!

I just can't help myself.
I love the snow.
I love being snowed in.

I have cooked, cleaned, organized and just enjoyed being home.
"Sweet Hunter" was getting spoiled so he had to go to work!

The main roads in town are good but
 these back roads still have a ways to go.
I think I am one of the few people that loves to be home.
I don't get cabin fever!
I am not ready for the snow to go away.
But I think this weekend it will be
Going, Going, Gone but NOT yet!!!


This is our well house.
We have the best well water.
It comes straight from a spring. 
When it is this cold we have to put a light in the
well house to keep it from freezing or we will wake up to 
NO WATER!
Today I am thankful for.......water and electricity.

Isn't that sweet?

I never get cabin fever either. I keep so busy that I don't get bored.

I love it that you're going to post pictures of your dad's quilts. I'm sure Granny would be proud of him.

The snow has been so pretty! We dug out yesterday and I made it to the grocery store. Your lake is beautiful covered with ice. I am following Sweet Teen's blog and I am off now to visit Angel. Hope you have a nice, warm weekend. Enjoy!

I am glad you have enjoyed the snow! I know you have enjoyed getting a lot done at home, along with all that good food you have been cooking!

Hi Val, it looks like you really had deep snow and ice. We were able to get out yesterday and make a mad dash to the grocery store. Hopefully today most of the roads in Jackson County will be clear. Stay warm and safe.

I love love love your photos. So serene and snow is so pretty. I lived in TN for 3 yrs. While there my American hubby took me on his Harley over to Georgia to visit a friend. This friend also had a well outback of his house. He kept telling my hubby about that well outback. But his accent sounded like whale to me, I wondered how on earth he could have a whale out there...finally I realised what he was saying.
And my accent had many of my work mates and patients wondering what I was saying at times. We live in a beautiful world..you portray it very well with you wonderful photography. Bless you.

Love the snow pictures...it is wonderful to have the snow as long as you don't have to drive to work in it...did that too many years...in fact several times I got a hotel room not far from the office instead of driving...and my company paid the tab...told them I would stay home but they wanted me there so they were willing to pick up the hotel tab.

Spring is not far off...we will be able to work in the gardens once again.

I love snow and being snowed in too, Val, but not without water and electricity. Thank God, I kept both this time. Love your pictures.
