Day Eleven Of Our US Adventure: The Winter Wonderland Continues

 
Today we woke to the wonderful white stuff again!
Funny how the locals are not so keen on it...especially in April!
Our hosts are "snow birds" having escaped the harsh New England winter....so to have snow on their return is not their idea of fun!
For us, we can enjoy the novelty of the snow, but if you are living and working with it, not so good I guess.
 
 
After a snowball fight, the Teens and Hubby set to clearing the mile long drive way of sticks.
These would be a hazard for any of us taking our cars out later on.
 
 
Hard work has probably never been such fun!
 
 
 
 
Once home it was time to warm them up with a hot drink and warm cookies...
 
 
 
 
...and time to warm up by the fire...which I had already been enjoying with some knitting!
 
 
 
It always takes me by surprise...to be over here around Easter time and yet folks still have Christmas decorations up...however you only have to see how pretty things look in the snow to realise why they make the festive season last a little longer!
 
 
Our host has been busy in the kitchen "cooking up a storm" for us to enjoy later.
I can smell rice pudding...US style....it is packed with raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and baked in an egg custard...cant wait to try it!
There is also a "tea ring" proving in the bread maker....it sounds like a "Swedish Ring" to me...I cant wait to try that.
We are being well and truly spoilt that's for sure!

Today's Psalm:
   Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
