The days are getting colder. Yes.
Bugs are dying by the truckload! 
Ha ha ha! Good riddance to ‘em all! - 
Calvin and Hobbes

 No one can look at a pine tree in winter 
without knowing that spring will come again in due time.
Frank Bolles

 I like these cold, gray winter days.  Days like these let you savor a bad mood.  
Calvin and Hobbes

 The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches.
 E. E. Cummings

 Nature chose for a tool, not the earthquake or lightning to rend and split asunder,
 not the stormy torrent or eroding rain, but the tender snow-flowers
 noiselessly falling through unnumbered centuries.
John Muir 

 The problem with winter sports is that
 – follow me closely here – 
they generally take place in winter. 
Dave Barry

I used to be Snow White, but I drifted. 
Mae West

 I must say, the stinging snow makes your cheeks look positively radiant.
Calvin and Hobbes

 I should be doing my homework now. 
But the way I see it, playing in the snow is a lot more important. 
Out here I'm learning skills that I can apply throughout the rest of my life
 - procrastinating and rationalizing.
Calvin and Hobbes

The grumpy face is priceless, Leenie. Love the quotes and your perfect beautiful photos. I can't wait to go sledding - we just need our snow to stick around long enough!

I love these peaceful days with your cheerful families in snow-clad scenery.
Please stay warm. ~~旦_(^‥^=)~

That snow is just beautiful!! I'll be glad to look at your pictures from afar, and not have to deal with going out in it! :) :)

Now THAT is winter at its best. Who's kiddies are those?
Hahaha... the winter sports quote and the last one (procrastination and rationalization are hobbies of mine) are my favourite.

Yes, learning SKILLS! Your snow is incredible! I sent it on it's way - it was not wanted here!

Your quotes are wonderful. I also like your water color pencils. I've tried the pencils and I rather liked them.
