I woke up early this morning to a sugar dusted world.
I forced myself to go out and feed the birds. It was so cold and I couldn't quite wake up.
Of course I stepped in doggie doo on the way to the bird feeder.
Don't you hate that?
But the little birds were so grateful.
The cats don't quite know what to do when it snows. I love to watch them pick their way across the snow, shaking each paw with every step. Ling Ling is especially prissy. But she wanted to be outside, so her wish was granted. She is quite spoiled. But look at that little face. Just as sweet as can be. I can't help but spoil her.
The clouds are very low in the sky today. The weather has been very moody. One day it is sunny and warm, the next it is snowing. All weekend Hubby and I worked outside in mild sunny weather, picking up branches from the ice storm. It is very overwhelming. But we cleaned up an area that was most important. The top of the driveway and alongside the road. We filled the back of the pick up truck 4 times.
It looks much better now.
But I have 300 feet of driveway to finish. All lined with broken trees. I have one side almost done. I've been going out myself and doing a little here and there whenever the weather is mild, while Hubby is away at work.
We have gigantic neat piles of branches waiting for the chipper.
It is very hard work and my body can only do so much at a time.
But I am in no way complaining. I am very grateful that the house wasn't damaged or we weren't hurt. This week has been a terrible week across our country with Tornadoes causing so much heartache and loss of life.
I have nothing to complain about.
I have these sweet little faces to bring a smile.
And my crocus are starting to bloom. Even in the snow.
And I have daffodils to remind me that spring is just around the corner. (This picture was taken last week)
And last night Hubby brought home a package from the Post Office. Inside were all these little gifts from my sweet sister-in-law, T, all the way from N.H.
Just look at that sweet little sachet! The scent of Lavender, mmmm! And a beautiful photo all framed and ready to place close by as a reminder of how much we miss our dear ones.
So I will be busy creating a Thank you card and writing some letters.
So let it snow!
How is the weather where you are?
