Xmas In May???

Good Day everyone! Today it was hard to get up from a cozy, comfy bed. Why? Well, you know when you get up, around 5 am because your little one needs help to go to the bathroom and you see everything white?So, I thought I was still dreaming... Ewan got back to bed right away, since he had a few more hours to sleep, and I went to the living room to check if I was really dreaming or if it was real what I was seeing.
I could even pinch myself to see if I was sleepwalking, but no, it was very real. Sometimes the weather network is not a 100% and I wish they were wrong this time... As my brother-in-law says, I live in a place that is white inside and out!!! Literally!!! He has such a good sense of humor.
When I woke up my kids to school, they asked if school could be canceled today and if they could go back to bed. Poor kids, I know we've been waiting for Spring to arrive , and they couldn't miss today, they both had a big test this morning. So, sorry kids, you guys have to go to school. It could be worse, you know?
So, as I'm a very positive mom, I promise when they come back a nice hot chocolate with cheese bread I make. Just to warm up their spirits!
My son Nick said it looks like Christmas!!! In May!!!
I love their imagination, and to complete his one,he said they should be allowed to have gifts as well... Smart boy.
Here are the pics from my reality today:

No flowers in the pots yet
Even the dogs are lazy today...
I would love to be sitting there now
I was supposed to start a post about a ruffle flower I made, but I will leave it for another day...Sorry Folks, but for those who can't believe this can happen at this time of the year, this is just a positive  way of looking for a snowy day with warm heart!
AS we can't enjoy the green grass, the flowers (I'm glad I didn't plant mine) and playing outside, we can at least enjoy the warmth inside and hang out here, in our own place where is always warm and cozy, right? We have to look in the bright way, always!
Wishing you all a warm (inside and out) lovely week!
Until next time,

This is what made me so depressed living in Alberta. It was a shock. Hope you can keep your spirits up because I sure could not...blessings to you and it will be gone in a few days...and then suddenly it will be 27C that is just how it is. hang on.

NO WAY Li! How bizarre.
Hope Spring comes back and stays next time. I'll keep an eye out for your ruffle flower tutorial;-)

Sorry, I know you want spring...but that looks beautiful!

Deb said...

Hi Li, well...after seeing your snow, mine doesn't seem so bad! Your cheese bread sounds delish, worth the snow I bet! Deb

~omg~ I can't believe it. That goea to show you...somethings up with our great little planet. Here in Toronto this year it's been amazing weather. Shovelled powder only twice this winter, and everything popped out of the ground weeks ago. It has been 70 quite a few days. If you need a break from snow...come visit :-)

It will be gone in a flash Li...hang in there. You'll be sipping iced tea on your adirondack chairs in no time.

It's called "poor man's fertilizer"! What can we do but laugh? And stay home! The roads were horrible!

Hello Li,
I am from Montana, and I can remember having this happen. Crazy. My sister was born April 29th, during a blizzard. So crazy.
Hope you are staying warm!
We had a very warm day today!
Take Care,
Your friend,

Li you took some awesome pictures for the people that are lucky enough not to live in Edmonton, AB. It looked like i felt, i was so sick but i'm just starting to feel better now - still coughing but thats ok. Its happened so often that we have a snow storm in May but every time it happens we are so surprised, isn't that funny? I have 2 sets of projects for clients this month but if i'm ahead of schedule than maybe we can get together for that coffee. I took a trip out to One mans treasure and got some info on that garage sale so we should forsure go to that - is the one in morinville on the Sat or Sun?

Can't wait to see that pillow you mentioned!!!
have a good week Li!

Oh how lovely! Here in Brisbane it's sunny most of the year, even winter can have beautiful warm days, but I would absolutely love to spend some time living in an area with a proper snowy winter. And your hot chocolate and cheese bread sounds just the thing after a cold day at school! K xx

Tina said...

Hi Li, just stopping by again to say hello. Hope you are well and wishing you a wonderful week ~ Tina xx

Wow, that snow sure looks beautiful.You captured some great images. It all looks so peaceful, just perfect for hot chocolate. And your doggies are so cute on that couch. I hope you are well and survived the snowstorm.

Angela said...

Hubby and I were just talking about 'you' here in Ontario Canada. I will have to show him these pictures. he said he had heard on the news that you all got a lot of snow! My goodness gracious, he definitely was right.

Angela said...

Hubby is here looking at the pics, lol. "Where is she from?" "Where you told me the snow went!" lol
