Winter Wonderland II

The nor'easter dumped a December record snowfall of 18" inches on us and it finally stop early this morning. So there is a lot of shoveling for us. Here are some pictures I took while shoveling. Enjoy!!

Total of 18"

Where is the cars?

Aren't this beatiful! So peaceful and quiet.

Bandit enjoying the snow.

My shovel taking a rest ;)

Carlos hard at work.

Too bad I don't have a sled to go down this slope.

Putting some of the snow in David's truck and dump it somewhere else.

I think we did a pretty good job.

Man, I am tired so it is time to make myself a cup of hot chocolate, put up my feet and watch some TV.

Winter Wonderland in PA

Woke up this morning and this is the scenes that greets me. It's definitely a winter wonderland in the PA area today! This is the most snow that we've gotten in a LONG time. We still can’t go out to shovel yet as the snow continues to come down fast and furious. Anyone care to help us?
Happy weekend everyone!!

I will be posting more photos as the snow continues to accumulate. Part of me are excited that we will be having white Christmas but part me worries that I will be stranded at home for days as I still have a lot errands to run before Christmas.

Early Christmas

Christmas came early for us this year. A few weeks ago there was a huge package waiting for us at the front door. The package was from New Zealand and I knew right away who is it from. They were gifts from my good friend Shereen, her husband Simon and son Justyn. Just look at what was inside the box. It was full of my favorite cookies Tim Tam. And also Manuka honey and some browning sauce (I can make Sarawak cake with this) Thanks Fielden family for being so thoughtful!

For those of you who are in the US and interested in buying the original Australia Tim Tam you can get it at Pepperidge Farm. I understand they will be selling it only for the holiday season.

Winter is here

Our first snow this season came pretty late this year. We had our 1st snow last year in November . Many people told me this winter will be bad as we have not had one bad one for 5 years. My neighbor Nancy told me one of the tell tale sign is the deer fur are much thicker and darker and also the beetles are huge. So we have to wait and see if this is true or not. I might not have to shovel much snow this season as I will be going back to Malaysia for Chinese New Year. I can't wait to go home for some warm weather ;)

All my potted plants are death.

Except for this one in the house given to me by SC. Just look at the beautiful flowers.
