Early March Snow

Most of Maine awakened to snow falling this morning. School children all over the state watched the television set, bleary-eyed and hopeful, wishing for the all-important snow day. Most of them were not disappointed. The closure list this morning seemed never-ending.

After a leisurely morning, snow days always put me in the mood to bake, so after taking a few photos of the beautiful snow, we baked Soft Molasses Cookies. Although I can't share the cookies over the internet, I can share our photos. Enjoy!

This is the view outside one of our bedroom windows...

If you look closely, you can see the white bench outside our front door, buried in snow... and of course, our fake tree still up from Christmas!

The tool shed outside our back door...

Now that dark is on its way, we need to venture out and start the plowing and shoveling, but in spite of all the work it causes, you have to admit, it sure is pretty!

Aw, where's the picture of the cookies?
The snow is so pretty, as long as you're on the inside looking out!

Ok, I added a cookie picture. Just click on the link to the cookie recipe (right there in the blog). Not the best photo, but you'll get the idea. :)
