Everyday Life: First Snow

by Tammy Strobel on November 12, 2012

{Photography helps me see the world differently and enables me to be less sad about my dad’s death. Since I’ve been taking so many photos, I decided to begin a new series on the blog called  “Everyday Life.” Enjoy!}

On Saturday morning, we woke up to find a light dusting of snow on the ground. After I climbed down the loft ladder, I immediately went outside with my camera and the cats were right behind me. It was a treat to see the kittens explore the snow covered surroundings. They loved every minute of their new experience!

Enjoy your Monday and the photos . . .

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass

It’s fun to see your tiny house in the different seasons!

Love the tiny amid the immense. And who can resist curious cat photos! Thank you.

Stay warm in your tiny house.

4 Claire/Just a little less November 12, 2012

Love your tiny house nestled amongst the trees. What are the views like from inside the house?

5 Tammy Strobel November 14, 2012

@Claire – I’ll take a few photos and post them soon.

I love the snow!!! I missed it for so many years after living in San Francisco Bay Area. I miss a family around cold snowy days. Nothing lasts forever….. Change with the changes around you, there’s a reason to adapt.
Love your blog!

Love the Lewis Carroll quote – two of my favorite books!

Welcome to Siskiyou County! I found your blog via the THB and thought that your scenery looked familiar. I am nearby in western Siskiyou co, where the kid and I upgraded from retro airtream living to owning our very own shack! Can’t wait to read your book, for years I’ve been telling my daughter how rich we are, in all of the best ways. Hope you find Little Shasta warm and homey.

Hi Ellen – Thanks for stopping by. I LOVE Siskiyou County!

Your little place sounds lovely. :) I hope you like the book.

Your place is an artwork in itself. Beautiful photography :-)

Tammy, How do your kitties not run away each time you move? I’d always be anxious about that scenario myself.

12 Tammy Strobel November 14, 2012

@Jessica – They are new to the outdoor world, so I’m not worried about them running away. Here’s an older article I wrote about the kittens and how they have adapted to the small house > http://rowdykittens.com/2011/11/two-cats-in-a-tiny-house/

13 Natalie November 13, 2012

Beautiful. What a great quote to go with your pictures!

14 Jeane George Weigel November 13, 2012

Lovely photos! Thank you for offering your snow experience and that of the cats. Love your tiny house and big life concept as well as your catch phrase, “Go small, think big and be happy.” Nicely done. Congratulations on living the life you imagined.

15 Tammy Strobel November 14, 2012

Thanks Jeane!

16 Emily November 13, 2012

I love that quote! We had our first snow here in Chicago last night, and it was magical. Big fat flakes that floated between all the old buildings in my neighborhood. But I have to imagine out west by you is even prettier!
