We just shoveled our way out from under the last snow storm which began last Thursday and now we are facing another big storm due to arrive sometime tonight and into tomorrow. That is our snow shovel in the driveway above. We got around 12 inches last week and we might get 8 inches more with the next storm. Now I know those of you who live in the northern states and out east are probably already yawning, but this was our first significant snowfall this year and it was a Big Deal to us!
It was snowing so heavily that you can barely see the pond. I was shooting out my dirty kitchen window that morning and was amazed to see that the finches were busily eating at the feeder during the blizzard. Take note of the amount of seed in the feeder.
We had a break in the snow in late afternoon and the sun came out very briefly. Check out the seed in the finch feeder now. The finches didn't let a little blizzard stop them from eating, but they were a bit messy judging by all the seed on the snow below.
Stormy wasn't concerned about the snow storm at all. While I was pacing the floor and worrying about my loved ones until they were safely home, she decided to take a nap at one of her favorite spots when I'm in the kitchen. A lot of cups of hot chocolate and coffee and bowls of soup were fixed in this kitchen those snowy days.
It did warm up above the freezing mark over the weekend and a bit of the snow melted, but we still have plenty left. The sun looked so good and I thought that Saturday would be a good day to get out. I was getting cabin fever. So my husband and I hopped in the car and went to one of my favorite flea market/antique malls. We spent a couple of hours or so looking around. We weren't alone, there were a number of others browsing and I decided they must have had cabin fever, too. I didn't find what I was looking for, so we came home with only a few books that I couldn't resist and 4 Paula Deen magazines that were only a quarter each. How was your weekend?
Until next time...
