Winter Wonderland at Womens Retreat

I'm linking to Susan's Outdoor Wednesday party. Go on over to her blog, A Southern Daydreamer to check out other outdoor photos. I bet we'll see a lot of winter scenes today.
I have been away a lot these last couple of weeks. One of the events I attended this past weekend was a women's retreat sponsored by our church. On Friday we left at the beginning of a snow storm. By that evening and the next day, we were snowed in at our lovely lodge. We had a wonderful weekend of fun, food and fellowship. These are some photos outside of the lodge.

This is the caretaker's house, taken from the lodge.

The caretaker's dog, Sofie, liked to romp in the snow.

Hi Karen,
What wonderful photos of the snow.And to be able to go to a retreat would be so wonderful.

I must apologize for not being able to join you on the bedroom makeover, as due to my illness I have done no housework for weeks as a matter of fact until a few days ago my dh was chief cook and bottle washer. He has been doing it all. I am now back to doing my housework and exercising. I just didn't get well enough in time to do a make over. So please forgive me, and I hope next time I will be able to join you.
Blessings, Sue

How pretty -- we've had so much snow too -- but our doggies are begging us to move to Florida!

Cold outside but I bet it was warm and toasty inside. Food, fun, and fellowship with sisters of the heart...hope your spirit was refreshed.
I better start collecting some bedrooms that make for a warm glow for next Tuesday.
Warm Wednesday Blessings ;-)

Oh I just love Women's Retreats. I bet you all did not even mind that it was snowing outside. All those women in one place, enjoying, fun, fellowship and I am sure good food.
Your photos are just lovely. How is the snow up your way. Here it is pretty "white" outside.

Have a great week.
