SNOWY LIFE AT THE CASA

After my last post, I had a bloody Mary, then sans the sleepwear and went back to bed to enjoy some nice slumber! I could almost get use to these snow days. I've had one almost every week now for the last three weeks. I then got up and had a huge breakfast of sunnyside up eggs, a slice of ham, home fries, and two pancakes!!!!! Currently the snow has subsided, after getting 14" mixed with sleet. We are to get another 2-4" again later tonight on the backside of the storm. With all these varying degrees of inches, I've never felt more like a prostitute!!! This was the site outside the one boudoir window this morning.....

 
In between the snow in the warming, the snow melts. But when it freezes again it has frozen the gutters shut, creating these very long crystal icicles!!!!! I couldn't even get the length in the picture....
 
 
This was last night....looks evil like no?
 
 
This morning while tending to the window sill feeding station I reached for one......look how long it is....
 
 
to be used later for a instant chilled stir for my gin and tonics....
 
 
Meanwhile the poor little birds are having a terrible time finding food. I filled my little containers for them, but with the high winds, the poor creatures are having a terrible time staying put on the window sill. Although these little tufted titmice were determined....
 
 
 
Power went out for about a half hour, but came on and has stayed on...thankfully. Last week's storm it was out for two days! But at the Casa the houseboys are staying warm by any means necessary....

  10. The city is a mess. The snow is much more picturesque where you are. Those birds are so sweet!

  11. My, what big... icicles you have.

    You certainly know how to handle a snow day. A gin and tonic, ingenious use of frozen rods (of water), photography, enjoying the wildlife - good on you.

    The storm arrived here a couple of hours ago, and is currently adding more snow to the woods. There's a fire in the wood stove and a rum in my hand, so staying warm for now.

    Cheers.

  12. Talk about chestnuts roasting over a open fire! I would have to experience a winter sometime, but it looks so pretty, you have such great shots! Enjoy.

  14. Yes, Im with the rest of you! I'm so over this winter, but Mistress, you always have such an eye for beauty and creatively mixing a cocktail.

  15. What a lovely winter post! What else can one do but enjoy, as we have no control over it. Those icicles are amazing, but it doesn't surprise me in the least your drawn to anything phallic. And the birds are so dear.
