A Thanksgiving Miracle

{first snowfall}

A funny thing happened on Thanksgiving... it snowed!

There I was, in the middle of my French lesson (with my lovely, patient tutor Sophie), when I looked out the window and saw snow.

Holy Thanksgiving miracle!

And I felt happy. It was like the Thanksgiving Gods, Chief Massasoit and Pilgrim Winslow, perched at their big Thanksgiving table in the sky, looked down upon me and were sad that I was missing out on all the holiday fun. And since they weren't going to rain down turkeys and sweet potatoes (but how cool and yummy would that have been?), they blessed me with snow.
It was really nice of them wasn't it?

But then I felt bad. My friend Donkey has been minding the sheep and he probably wouldn't like the snow very much...

And of course the sheep might not like it either...

but at least they're wearing wool sweaters.

  3. I wonder is sheep are absorbant? You know..like a sponge. Sorry, it's early here ;)
    We had snow too for Thanksgiving! But in northern Minnesota, that's pretty normal. Happy belated Turkey Day!

  5. I'm amazed you've got snow there. It must be rare. We've got quite a bit and it's snowing right now.
    How are the French lessons going?

  7. We had a few flakes this afternoon, but none stayed around. It might as well snow, if it's going to be this cold. Brrr.

  10. I leave Massauchsetts for Texas in 18 days. After 25 years of winters in Michigan than in Boston I have my fingers crossed that I will be spared snow this year.

  14. Thanksgiving snow! How beautiful, although I can only agree, raining turkey and sweet potatoes would also be pretty legit :)

  15. We had snow yesterday! we were just having walk in villeneuve les avignon and it started to snow. We jumped like little lambs - I was so happy! Luckily animals has been getting ready for winter, I'm sure that this donkey has so thick hair already that he won't suffer from cold or snow. In Finland the horses are looking funny with their ridicilously long hairs!

  18. i've only seen snow once in my life, in france. so it's still pretty magical to me. throw a snowball on my behalf won't you? :)

  19. No snow here yet, but it was freezing on Saturday. Pretty nippy today too.

    I don't think sheep or donkeys mind a little snow. They have lovely thick shaggy coats. My cat is eating like a pig at the moment and his coat is thick and glossy so he doesn't mind being out in it either. He's all fat and cuddly.
