Oh! What A Beautiful Morning- Care To Join Me For Coffee On The Side Porch

Oh! What a beautiful morning-
Oh! What a beautiful day-
I've got a wonderful feeling-
everything's going.........
What?  

Remember that song from the past?
It is running through my head this morning.
Would you like to join me for coffee on
our little side porch off the dining room
this morning?
I re-did the porch last summer here
So---Come join me, please.

OH-WAIT A MINUTE!
Dress warm because this morning that same
table looks like THIS!
Appropriate dress would be advised...
something along the line of this....
Maybe I better change the coffee to 7Up-
that way if you are shivering with the cold
you won't get stains on your white coat when
you spill your drink.
Have a wonderful day!
ps-No!  That is NOT me- thanks for asking.

I am not happy with all the snow we got and are about to get let alone the artic blast that's happening. That's supposed to get worse, too. Stay in a stay warm and go back to coffee.

Gayla said...

Good morning! I'll join you! But brr! That fur coat will be welcome!

Kay G. said...

wow, what snow! What cold!

Don't be shy, we know that is really YOU!!

Kathy said...


That looks like my yard. It's bad here. They are saying 6 inches but with the drifting it's much more than that. Trying to find out if work is open. If it is, don't know how I am going to get there.

Don't like snow, or the cold, but would be happy to join you for coffee in the Summer!

I got a chuckle reading is. Just came in from starting my car to let it warm up.....eighteen below actual temp right now. Holy cats! Stay warm, lady Di! Jane

Musings from Kim K. said...

I'm getting ready for work and it's -4 degrees out. Crazy cold. Have a wonderful weekend, you snow bunny!

Melanie said...

Love that musical! It is a happy way to start a day, especially on a bitter cold morning. Loved the pictures of your porch, the first one reminds me that this bitter cold will not last forever. Have a great weekend!

Katie Clooney said...

I am dead center in the middle of this Nor'easter? I keep asking my Mr. why did we move again? Stay warm.

BECKY said...

That is a lot of snow!!! I definitely prefer the Florida sunshine to any of that, but it's still fun to see the pics!! Stay warm sweetie!! And be safe!
Hugs,
Becky

Sylvia said...

I would love to join you for "tea" but since I'm down with Mr. Flu Bug, I think I'll stay inside wher it's warm. Love all the snow, it look like a cake plate dome on the table.

Kathy@ Gone North said...

My deck looks the same this morning & Baby, it is cold outside. I'll join you if the invite still stands next summer..

Amber said...

Holy cow! Brr! and double Brr! And I thought it was cold here at 22 degrees this morning. Stay cozy sweet friend!

Babs Richman said...

Wow! Do you ever have snow! So many hit with winter storm Hercules. I'm watching on the Weather Channel. It's just really cold here. Hope you are too inconvenienced with the storm. But then, I guess you're used to snow up there. :) Hugs and stay warm.

Patty Patterson said...

The snow is beautiful. I love being snowed in during the winter. I especially love it if some of the kids are snowed in with me. LOL But, in Oklahoma, we don't get much snow. We've had two good snows so far this winter and that's a lot for us.

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

It's 12 degrees at the moment. It's even cold in the house! Good day to take down the Christmas decorations. Maybe all those trips up and down the steps will warm me up! Stay warm and cozy, if that's even possible!

Lucille said...

It's been so terribly cold in Ottawa. I need to bus downhill to get groceries. It's -34 with the windshield! But you know what, I prefer this to summer weather. I guess I'm a winter person!

Nellie said...

I'll keep my seat inside, thank you! How deep is that snow, anyway? Wow! Stay safe and warm. xo Nellie

Ron said...

I'll stay inside with my coffee watching Kelly & Michael. WOW! That is some snow. It is cold here but nothing like y'all! Stay warm.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

If that is not you....is it ME? hahaha! Stay warm...stay inside! I'm feeling a wee bit better but it's blustery here so I'll be inside again. And now I'm singing a happy tune! Sweet hugs!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

LOL! Before I saw it was you, Diana, I saw the thumbnail picture in my dashboard and was thinking, "Where does this person live? I want some of that weather!". I've got a similar view out our windows although I think we only got about 6 inches yesterday. More to come Sunday!

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

Oh look at all that snow! They finally said "more than 6 inches on Sat/Sun. uughh. at least it is on the weekend!

Simply LKJ said...

Oh my that is a lot of snow!!! Stay warm!!

andrea@townandprairie said...

Good morning dahhhling! Love your new coat! Do you have snow boots to go w/ that? B/c you're gonna be shovelin! :D

jackie collins said...

Oh I can only remember those warm sunny days! It is 14 degrees now and the sun is shining turning most of our snow into a glittery winter scape. I will stay inside and enjoy it through the window, my bones are not happy with the cold. I am counting the days till our spring bulbs poke thru and Mother Nature paints the landscape green!

camp and cottage living said...

You sure that's not you?
I can't even thing of Spring, it's so...far off.
I would enjoy sharing tea with you any time Diana, just not in the snow!

Mindy said...

Wow, that's A LOT of snow! We ain't got squat. Rain, rain, and rain.

Kim M said...

I am looking at that same pile of snow outside...I don't like it! :)

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

Wow...that's a lot of snow! It's still sunny and warm here in New Mexico, but I see that we have a cold spell coming tomorro! Thank you so much for all the sweet comments that you leave on my blog. I'm so sorry that you don't have the butter churn of your mothers. All of my churns belonged to my mother...they are treasures...so, I know how much that one must have meant to you. Hugs, Penny

Teresa said...

I know that we are Wisconsinites...but I think I will pass on this one!!! But we are going to have a heat wave for one day...tomorrow! I am sure hoping that I can get out. I am starting to get cabin fever. I want to go out and have fun...not just go out to go to work. What a way to start the New Year. lol

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh Yes, I wish I could sip coffee with you on your pretty porch. We would have a nice visit.

And you DO kind of look like that woman with the white fur!!!

Love,
~Sheri

Christine said...

That is a lot of snow!
It would be fun to have a "tea party" out there.
Hope you stay warm and cozy inside.

Burrrrr.....I would come for tea, but can we wait till the snow goes away???? Well, we just have to get through January and then things might warm up a bit and the days will get longer too!! Keep warm!!

Junkchiccottage said...

Ha Ha Diana,
Thanks for the smile. I have a table out in my back yard that looks just like yours!!!! Oh to think we were watering pretty flowers just a few months ago!!!
Stay warm.

Donna said...

What? Are you SURE that isn't you in the fur and sunglasses, Diana? I could have sworn it was! Super cold here, lots of snow and more on the way. Keep warm:)

Burrr……makes me happy I live in TX even if we have dreadfully hot summers. Stay warm.

Gypsy Heart said...

God bless you! I just don't think I could live where it snows soooo much. Of course, I hate our Texas summers too with the brutal heat we have. What's a girl to do? :)

Savannah Granny said...

You can't fool me, that's you modeling your Christmas gift!
This is certainly, hot coffee, chocolate or cider time.
Take care. I am suffering in this 44 degree weather. All things are relative.

Vee said...

That's quite a difference! Enjoyed reading about the transformation and it was quite spectacular. She could definitely be you, I think.

Celestina Marie Design said...

Hi Diana, well if that is not you, I can't believe it. Looks just like you, gorgeous in a fur coat. I'll be there to join you.
Have a great weekend of the new year.

I enjoyed seeing your snow. No snow here. Well my brother who lives 60 miles north of us got snow. They say this weekend we will end up with some. Who knows. It is Georgia in winter.

That coat looks fabulous.
