winter

There is no denying, I love winter. As I have said before, I love all seasons. And my favorite, is always the one I am currently in. To commemorate Shari's Winter White week, we enjoyed french onion soup, with white wine, of course. The kids had leftovers from the week.
A shot of my favorite stairs, on a walk we take often through the woods. I photograph these stairs almost every time I see them.

Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Knitting to commence soon, I promise.

I can just imagine the taste of the melted cheese on the soup...with the wine...so delicious! Enjoy your weekend!

Denise said...

That looks a cool place to walk. I have to agree, I like every season, and usually like the one we're currently in the best... until the next one comes along;)
Soup sounds yummy.
Enjoy your weekend.
Hugs Denise

So sweet, Leslie, that you enjoy all seasons. I now enjoy all of them (now that I don't live where it rains 9 months of the year) except when it's VERY hot in the summer---I'm a wimp when it comes to heat.

I think I'd take a photo of those stairs, too. They're very inviting.

French Onion Soup. Yum. Did you make the big crouton for the top? I love that.

Mmmm, onion soup. Though chopping all those onions must have been killer.

jenna said...

I love every season, too. :) I always say that I could never live anyplace that the seasons don't really change. I am sure the onions made a tasty soup!

Sarah said...

Take you time with knitting, I am enjoying the winter white series.

Sometimes I think I should sell my city flat and move to someplace where there are woods like those. Simply charming, clean and quiet.

Cinnamonamon said...

Oh...I MISS French Onion Soup! Yum. :)

Oh, the snow is beautiful! I'm jealous - all we've got is pouring rain, all day every day. I love your photos.

How funny, our kids also have leftovers when we have anything 'good' for dinner!

Nancy said...

lovely! do your kids not like French Onion Soup? or does the wine not cook down enough to feel comfortable giving it to children maybe? As a child it was one thing I'd be most excited to see on a restaurant menu. I've never made it at home-- I'm definitely trying that recipe!

i've really enjoyed all of your winter whites!

DAWN said...

I love that you embrace all the seasons. I, cannot tolerate winter so I will leave that to you. I have enjoyed your winter white journey. Those stairs look like they could take you away to some mystical place.

your photos are outstanding as usual. I love your positive outlook on the weather. I could take a lesson or two from you. :)

I love winter too. I need my seasons. It's the scope for getting cosy that does it. Have nominated you for "you made my day" on my blog for the cosy content of your blog!

Molly said...

I love winter too. This year is especially beautiful where we are. In recent years, the winters in Western Montana have been gray and brown and long. But this winter has been white for weeks! Soooo beautiful. I contributed one photo to winter white week as well. Thanks for letting us know about it!

Jess said...

I am enjoying the non knitting related photography. Especially when they include food... yummmmmy! Take your time with the knitting photos. And sorry to hear about your car! Were you in town?

Tanya said...

Yarn It said...

Oh my, I will have to try that French Onion soup! One of my favorites. I did try those Lemony Snicket cookes and they were fabulous - a huge hit with everyone who tried them!

Stacey said...

mmm - I love french onion soup!!! one of my winter faves too!! i love looking at the snow from inside sitting on my cozy couch curled up with tea and my puppies!

TLCknits said...

Winter is my favorite Clothing season :).. Love the photos!

MadMad said...

I love those stairs! As an aside, if you're interested, I just learned this excellent tip to avoid crying while cutting onions; and since I'm helpful and housewifey that way, I'll share: wear swim goggles. It works great, and has the added benefit of making you look very sexy while doing your kitchen work!

KnitPastis said...

Your winter white photos look so pretty! Very relaxing and also would look so awesome framed! Such a great place to take a walk!

nova said...

Being one who loves fall, I have to say, your winter white photos are making me think of jumping on the snowy white wagon of winter...

Felicia said...
