A View from my Window

An artic Winter storm blew in late yesterday leaving lots of snow and freezing temperatures.  There are foot prints in that snow.


My UPS driver hiked a quarter of a mile from the main road to my house to deliver a package to me and it's like 9 degrees right now.  So for every horrible story you read about these delivery guys throwing packages on your porch, not caring if an item breaks, I have a gem.

  1. As do we--he does his best to get up our 1/2 mile driveway and if he can't, he leaves the package at our lower shed then calls us. We have 12 inches of snow over here south of Big Timber and so cold. Stay warm!!

  3. That is beautiful, though it can be a pain when you are snowed in. We are lucky since we have a school here and they always plow our roads.
    That was really nice of him, especially since you live in wilderness country.

  4. Wow, that is great service! Two days ago in Melbourne, Australia, it was 36c, today it is 20c and pouring rain and tomorrow down to 15c and it is suppose to be the start of Summer!

  5. Are you sure that's the view from your window. It looks an awful lot like the view from my window. Blessings to Mr. UPS.

  7. Beautiful pictures, but I have to admit, I am no fan of snow.. the cold and the inconvenience... so I admire your UPS man, what a great guy!

  8. My Son-in-law is a UPS driver and he would definitely walk up to your door - might grumble a little - but he would so do it. Just a great guy.

  11. I've enjoyed reading your blog. I feel that we enjoy many of the same things. I watch deer from my window along with a few squirrels. I live at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in Salt Lake. I love your quilts and just started taking the Primitive magazine. Love it. I fell in May and broke my shoulder. I drove myself to the hospital. So, between wildlife, quilts, and broken bones I've related to your blog. Keep sharing!
