A Memory of Snow

There's nary a spot of snow left now. The temps got up to 46 or so yesterday so most of it melted then, but today it's supposed to be above 60 so even if some of it hid in the shadows, it'll be gone for sure today. The kids sure did have fun playing in it late Friday and all day Saturday, it's not often that we get enough of that white stuff to play in.

Jerri bundled up The Chick and Jilly Beans on Friday when it really started coming down and sticking. They played until almost dark and then she brought them in for baths and hot chocolate. Beans was out of the tub first, Jerri dressed her in pjs, and told her to watch cartoons until The Chick was ready to be dried. Five minutes later she went to check on the Beans and couldn't find her. She looked out the patio doors and there she was, making snow angels with bare feet and pjs on. She'd escaped again!

I'll be posting photos of all the snow doings as I'm able. Jerri took some great ones too so I'll also post some of her shots.

Maybe Mother Nature has decided that we need a little Spring now. Maybe...

The tech dude is supposed to be here tomorrow to fix my satellite connection. I sure hope he does because I've got a tax return ready to be transmitted and loads of updates to download before that.

I've been in my little office this morning rearranging the junk and dusting the spots that aren't loaded down with stuff. I've got so much stuff going that there are still little stacks everywhere. I wish Martha S. would come by for a cup of coffee, I'd put her to work organizing all my things!

I just put a chicken in the oven to roast and already the wonderful aroma of rosemary is wafting through the air. It almost makes me forget about the aroma of axle grease coming from these air wrenchs and JD 9.6 volt light sitting here on the table which James was supposed to have put back in his truck about 3 days ago. He and Jeffrey were busy all weekend building a martin house (that the sparrows are already trying to move into), I reckon he'll remember these tools if he needs them when he gets to work.

I've been getting around to a few blogs as this laptop connection has let me, if I haven't visited in awhile I'll be by as soon as I can.

Better get some more stuff done around here, Zach has a ballgame tonight so it'll be a bit rushed around here after that school bus comes. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Good Morning Brenda,
I sure hope the Tech guy comes out today and gets you all fixed up again. I know how frustrating all of this is for you. We still had some Snow around here yesterday as well. It got up to around 57 degrees and I think most of it has melted now. There might be a few places where there is some shady spots that still has Snow. It is suppose to be up around 70 degrees tomorrow or Thursday. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures of the kids in the Snow. I can't beleive the baby went back outside barefooted. I bet that was a sight to see. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

I'm looking forward to the snow pictures. We didn't get any snow this winter in our country :(

Our snow is starting to melt too but since we got about 2 feet of it, it's taking a bit longer. LOL

I give Mr. AP two chances. If I ask him to move something twice and he hasn't done it. Then I move it for him. heh.

Hey Bren, thanks for stopping by and for the sweet comments.
I am so sorry about not giving you credit for the blog. I thought I had included a link to your post in with the other links. I am so sorry and am on my way right now to rectify the oversight. Thank goodness I have friends to keep me off the path of plagiarism!
I can't wait to see those pictures!!

Those little ones are so quick that you almost need a leash to keep up with them. Will be looking for the photos. ec

Snow is so great for kids who don't see it often. We lived in Charleston, SC for the "Snow of the Century". The kids were out sledding on cardboard, and had socks on their hands. They closed the schools for two days, and the kids had so much fun.

Here in the northern regions, sometimes there is so much snow in a year (not this year for us) that they'd rather be watching cartoons on tv.

Have a great day, and I hope your computer troubles are coming to an end.

We're having Verizon fios installed today, and the installer promised he wouldn't leave till everything is working correctly. I'm always nervous with changes.

Been gone a while myself, so I'm just reading, trying to catch up. I'll be saying prayers for you, Ms. Brenda. It's so hard to not have insurance when something happens like what you're trying to deal with. (HUGS)

The Beans continues to crack me up. If we could get mine and yours together, no telling what kind of trouble they'd get into. Hunter has that "look" when she's about to say a bad word, or has a plan of action. I love it!!

Send 'em all here, Brenda! I have enough snow to last them the entire year!!! And your chicken sure sounds good!!

The snow should be gone after the weather lately. Any sign of that internet guy?
