A Winter Wonderland

This is what I woke up to this morning in my neck of the woods. Ice covering everything.

The clear prisms outline every shape.

Covers every surface.

Hangs from every horizontal space.

There isn't a squirrel or bird to be seen or heard. 

When I opened the front door to catch these images, silly Abi slipped through and took off down the street. I hope she enjoyed her brief escape. She would run one way and then another, pausing to look at me as if to say: "Look where I am and you can't catch me."

Finally I stood on the porch holding Charlie, and the jealousy in her prevailed. She couldn't run on the ice. So she came walking as fast as her short little legs would go down the slippery street. Silly dog.

I'm sure she was quite proud of herself for escaping, for it's a rare occurrence. I just wonder what she thought when her feet hit the ice. Now she's snuggled up in the dog bed with Charlie, worn out from her morning escapade.

  1. Very pretty! We have to run the sprinkler to get that!

  2. I can just imagine her surprise when she hit that ice.It's the same way here this morning and a big snow is in our forecast for later today and tomorrow. Please be careful if you go out...(Pretend I'm your Mom.)

  3. I would not want to live in the cold so the images of your view this morning were perfect for me to enjoy the winter cold.

    I love how you used jealousy to get Abi to come in.

  4. It's beautiful - hope you don't lose power. I'm east of you just across the line in northwest Arkansas - just a few miles north of Siloam Springs. We got just a little ice on the trees but it's already melted off now.

  5. Very pretty but, oh, so cold looking. I blogged this morning about my outside - a totally different look in central Florida.

  6. Beautiful! Gives me chills, though! Take care and keep warm!

  7. Love the photo of the table with it's ice fringe. Glad you didn't try and chase Abi on the ice with that ankle.

  8. So pretty, as long as you don't have to go out. Abi should have put on ice skates!

  9. What are we going to do with that Abi? I bet she is worn out!!


  10. So cold, but beautiful to look at. I'm so glad your little scamp came running back when mama was giving the other pup all the attention. LOL!
    Merry Christmas!

  11. Gorgeous! Dangerous! I guess ours is coming. :/

  12. So, so beautiful, Brenda! Now, just don't go out there. You don't need a broken ankle/hip.

  13. Your wrought iron table looks lovely all draped in an ice tablecloth! Glad to hear that Abi scampered back indoors. Merry Christmas to you and the pupsters! ♥

  14. Such wonderful icy pictures, Brenda! You captured some beautiful images. So glad that Abi came back safely!

  15. Loved the pictures. I pray that Tulsa keeps their power. Ice sure is pretty to look at but not to get out on.

  16. So beautiful as long as you can stay home and have power. Those silly dogs. My Yorkie loves taking off. I think this beautiful scenery is a sign for you. What, I have no idea. (((((HUGS))))

  17. It certainly is a Winter Wonderland! Beautiful photography. Today on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, we are blanked in a sea of fog. Hope it finds another home before our oldest son flies in tomorrow night!

  18. I love your photos. We are in for some icy weather this weekend. Not much fun when you have to be on the roads like I do. Silly pup - just havin' some fun with mom. :)

  19. Hi Brenda...Abi is a funny little glad he came back in to mama...stay warm! Merry Christmas too!! :-)

  20. Beautiful pictures of the ice cycles Brenda. you and those pups stay warm and no slipping on that ice!

  21. We have ice here, too and I've heard of a lot of people falling. Very dangerous! Now we're under a winter storm warning where there's going to be more ice and sleet, then a lot of snow on top of that.

  22. Your Winter Wonderland is gorgeous, Brenda!



  23. I hate ice. Although your photos make it look so beautiful . Glad Abi came back on her own, you didn't need to run after here with that ice! xo

  24. Hard to believe something so beautiful can also be so destructive........Ice storms remind me of the fairy tale about the Seven Dancing Princesses as they passed through the forest of diamonds! I am sure it looked like your pictures!

  25. The ice is gorgeous in your photos, but i know how awful it is. Ice storms here just shut us down!! I bet when Abi hit the ice she had a shock, but the fun of running kept her going. Silly dog! Glad she came back and is all snuggled and warm now. Take care and don't you go near that ice!!!

  26. I"m so glad Abi came back when she saw you paying attention to Charlie Ross. My Ella the lab has jumped the fence twice this week. I go in search of her in the car and the minute she sees me she comes running, the darn scamp. I do not miss icy winters! I am spoiled!

  27. We just barely escaped that same ice storm last night. We had the warnings though. The pictures are so pretty! Thanks for sharing. Stay warm and be safe if you get out. Thanks again for sharing.

  28. It has been to look at. I couldn't make it work on Friday morning though! On the upside, the sledding hill in our yard was super-slippery for the kids and i to fly down! :)

  29. WOW!!!!

    Those are amazing shots and that is amazing weather, yikes. Stay inside warm dry and safe!!!!

  30. Wow! That ice is amazing! Great photos! So glad your doggy decided to come back home! Stay warm and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  31. Beautiful pictures! We don't see ice storms like that in CO, very pretty to look at, not so much for being out in it! Stay safe and warm!

  32. Life has been kicking my butt lately and I've missed coming by your blog. Yours is the first I check when I sit down at my computer to visit. Gorgeous photos of the ice. Nice day to say inside and enjoy fresh ground coffee. Snuggle up! I'm off to read the previous posts I missed.

  33. What a beautiful winterland!! I just love the look of your table and chairs outside!! You did great thinking fast to get Abi to come back! Good old sibling rivalry!!! Stay safe and warm, And have an enjoyable Merry Christmas spoiling those two precious puppies!!


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
