Holiday Photo Blogging

Today is Presidents' Day here in the US. I still haven't quite figured out who's birthday it is, or if today is neither Washington nor Lincoln's birthdays, just a day picked between them to celebrate. I'm sure one of my American readers can fill me in.

I finished reading Lucky last night. I need to work on the post-reading entry, it will take a little bit of time to make my thoughts coherent, and it will be the start of a trend of The Dark Side of Donna posts, so, y'all can look forward to that!

Instead, here's some more snow pictures of my house and property, plus an obligatory cute dog picture.

















Front of the house. Our bedroom is at the top of the A, behind the little deck on the second story. There's no snow on the right side because the trees caught it all before it could get to the ground. It rained last night so most of the snow is gone now.

















Directly behind the house. Right before we moved in 6 years ago a huge oak tree fell and took out a bunch of other trees with it. We've been cutting firewood from the pile ever since. Other than the fireline around the house and the driveway, the 2 acre property is all trees.

















Tucker and Bailey waiting for Daddy to get out of the shower.

Hi Donna,
Lincoln's birthday is on the 12th of Feb., Washington's birthday is on the 22nd of Feb.
I don't remember why the goverment combined the two (probably to save money for corporations), but I do remember getting two separate days off when I was a kid.
I prefer the individual holidays. I don't think I want to celebrate Presidents like Nixon.
Beautiful, cozy home you have.

I never keep up with President's Day. But it's mostly because I've never been privy to a day off for it. Sorry Lincoln & Washington.

Where do you find the time to read so much? OHHH, that's right, you aren't a lazy ass slob, like me.

Your place just looks SO peaceful -and so very different from my apt. dwelling NYC life.

I think President's Day was born so that we would always get a 3 day weekend - it's celebrated on the third monday of February, which generally falls between Lincoln's birthday (2/12) and Washington's (2/22).
