Big Fat Ones

At first it looked like we were just gonna get a mix of stuff but soon enough, I stepped outside and saw this. Big fat snowflakes all over the place. So great.

In other news, we just got home (after midnight), from Barnes and Wegmans. I bought more seeds, green goodies and Kosher dill pickles from the organic cold fridge. Next year, I'm gonna make them at home because 3.50 per jar is too high. Lucky for me, I'll soon learn to ferment lots of things because for Halloween this year, Tim got me a book about fermenting. Can't wait to play.

And that my Boogerbutts, wraps up this post. Nearly time to get into my jams and hit the slab.

  1. Hi Ivy, we did get some snow here in Quebec but further north, I think, as I didn't see any here...yet. It is coming, though. I love your image and I do love the snow. :)

  7. SNOW! You've hit the early bird jackpot. We've had snow in the Rockies already but none yet in Edmonton or Calgary.

    2. ... only just read your reply, We have had our heating on ... some mornings it can be quite chilly.

      Apparently Scotland may have snow next week. We will have to see what the weather brings!

  12. We actually saw a few flakes here! I'm glad it was just a flew!

  13. We've had a few flakes come down but they didn't stick around. But damn is it cold out! I tried to do a little garden cleanup today and I lasted about 20 minutes. Not that it spared me from chores. There were loads of them waiting for me indoors. Just a few more days and we'll be done with this reno nonsense!

    1. There's always some kind of chore lurking about. Monday will be loads day for me. Today, we moved the writing desk back in the bedroom and finished off the stockpile closet. We got so much done. Feels great. And look at you, just a few more days and you're DONE. Hot dog.

    1. 79? It was 32F here last night when it was snowing. Not sure what it is now. But wow, 79 sounds pretty fun, too.

      PS: Loved all your red.

    1. Very cool, Parsnip. I'm excited to learn how to properly ferment foods to help aid my insides.

      Yum, on the cherries.

      PS: Fat snow flakes long gone.

  16. *jealous* We will likely skip snow this year, but maybe if we hit the trails and get high enough we'll find some! Hope you are enjoying it with some hot cuppa :)

    1. It's long gone now, but it was pretty. I'll share pictures with you once we start to really dig into winter.

    1. It's a lot of fun to exchange. Do you guys exchange for any sort of silly holidays?
