Finally, some snow after a few snowless years.

You will remember THIS entry of a few weeks ago about the snow and winter. Today was again a snowy day and this time, I had my camera with me!! Traffic was quite heavy on the small road I’m travelling, before I get on the main road. I couldn’t resist taking pictures, whilst sitting in the car, before moving on another car length, just to sit again for 5 min-10 min. To be honest, I didn’t mind the wait, as I could just sit – in awe. I couldn’t get enough of the beauty that surrounded me and thought to share it with you today! Enjoy with me these images and I hope you understand now why I got so excited about the views in the other entry. I loooove snow, it’s so white and pure…wishing all people on earth could be so pure.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

Here’s a poem to enjoy! My 5000 words are done… now to hand in my assignment on Monday…hip-hip hurray! One more to go!

Wow, was just reading this entry about De Bono’s patterns of thinking again. Read what he says about creativity! 

Shakespeare… again…my favourite

Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind

Act II, Scene 7 from As You Like It by William Shakespeare (1600)
Blow, blow, thou winter wind.
Thou art not so unkind
As man’s ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then, heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.
Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That dost not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remember’d not.

Voila!! Test with blogdesk! Due to the picture-uploading-problem with WordPress, which is still not sorted, one of my friendly blogger-friends…suggested I use blogdesk and this is my first post with blogdesk! Thank you, Chris…from “kop-op-n-blok”…see the blogroll for his blog… he’s always willing to help me with anything “technical”…these pictures were taken yesterday! Beautiful snow! It snowed a bit more later the morning and the snow was a bit thicker than what you see on these pictures.
Enjoy this video! Dogs and Polar Bears play together!

These pictures were taken about 9:30-ish this morning… it didn’t snow that much…as you can tell from the pictures……this is our front garden…


This is our back garden…with the “garage”… not a garage to our “standards”, I would rather call it  a storage room…we have two guinea-pigs in there too! They are somewhere on my blog! 


This last picture was taken about 2 hours later than the others, just to show you how little it snowed actually…. we had snow here, quite thick, last year – I think it was  during  January…

This is a picture which “Squirrel” from the chess site has sent me … he lives north…about 2 hours from London….
