Hey, What's That White Stuff, A Walk of Sorts and Freeform Friday

News Flash: "There's Something Falling From The Sky"

Sometimes, just sometimes, the forecasters are right. They said we might see some snow last night, and we did.

It covered the lawn. It covered the car.  It stuck. It was still there this morning and it's still cold. Thankfully, the fire is going. One of the perks of having a home office.

Took a look outside this morning and a little wander around....................

Take A Walk With Us

It might be fall, and the trees may still have their colorful leaves on them ..................

.....but despite the morning sun melting the snow off the tops of these trees, that's not how it looked closer to the ground.

I hope it's a least a bit warmer where you are. They're predicting another front coming in tomorrow which is supposed to bring a couple of inches. We'll just see what happens. Now, don't get me wrong, I love living somewhere that has all four seasons and I LOVE the snow. Really I do. There's nothing like a good blizzard. It's just that, I'd like to get through Halloween before we start dealing with it: hauling wood, lighting fires, shoveling. Well, at least we didn't have to do any shoveling yet.

Tomorrow night our neighbors Lauren and Jay are having their 2nd Annual Halloween Party. We've got our 'get-ups' planned. If all works out well, I'll post pics, but I'm not quite letting the cat out of the bag yet. However, I will give you a small hint........our costumes are based on a tragic love story, a real classic (no, not Romeo & Juliet). Gar's not a real costume guy and he's only quasi into the whole thing, but I'll be there with bells on.  How about you? Any plans for Halloween? Are you dressing up? What are the kiddos dressing up as?  I'd love to know. I love Halloween.

Gotta Have It, Don't Miss It

Just another quick reminder to those of you who have online shops and blogs. If you haven't yet, join the shop link up and blog link up party! You just never know who might find your shop/blog that way, and you won't believe the things you find when you look around the links that people have shared. Everyone is so talented. Don't forget to spread the word to any fellow shop owners and bloggers you think might benefit from the free exposure.

Freeform Friday

To get this Halloween Weekend started right, here's an old favorite- just for fun. Click HERE if you're following by e-mail, and can't see the video.

Make it an awesome Friday in your neck of the woods, and I'll keep the home office fires burning.

ta ta for now,

PS- Did anyone see that world series game last night? Holy Mackrel! That's my kind of October baseball. Awesome stuff.

  1. Ahhhh, snow! We didn't get any down here, though my parents just north of us did. We stuck with rain and a solidly frosty lawn this morning. Can't believe it's snowing already, and we're forecast for some inches tomorrow. Boooo!!!


You comments make my day. Thanks for taking the time to visit Mercantile Muse and for commenting. I really appreciate it. ~Pam
