Hello, hello! How is everyone this nice Monday evening? Me, I can’t complain. We are back to school and so far everything is A-OK! Also, it warmed up today to be in the high 40’s. All the snow is basically melted, but I am happy about that. You see, around here, snow on the roads is mostly ice, and I am not one of those people who likes driving on ice. We had not gotten over freezing temps since last Thursday – Friday through Sunday were pretty much in the teens. It’s been cold and I haven’t wanted to do much of anything that involves being outside, especially driving.
My guy, on the other hand, is crazy. He and my boy sat in a cold deer stand Sunday morning and I know they were cold, freezing cold. I was warmly tucked away indoors, cleaning and grading papers. It was a no sewing Sunday, much to my dismay, but I got to start the new week with a nice clean house, and plenty of laundry put away. It ended up being a good thing after all.
I did venture out this weekend, however. My guy and I took a nice scenic drive through the park to go see how things looked at the cabin. Everything looked good, and I was finally able to get a few snowy pictures. I tried on Friday to get some of the freshly fallen snow, but made it as far as the back yard with my boy when I decided that 10 degrees was too cold for me to be walking around in without the proper amount of layers. I only managed to throw on a pair of fleece pants, a sweater, and a jacket, and it wasn’t enough to keep me warm. So back inside I went, probably right after my boy took this pic of me…
as I was taking a picture of this…
Not that exciting. I was wanting to see some brightly colored birds but no luck. At the cabin though, I did see this:
Not so bright, but he did stand out amongst the vines. Maybe I will get a cardinal next time.
That is all I have for tonight. Who else got snow? How much did you end up with?
