Is everyone as ready for spring as I am? The weatherman predicted snow flurries for us yesterday. This is what it looked like when the snow began.
Big fluffy beautiful snowflakes. At times it looked like a snow globe. My house looks like someone poured a jar of mustard over it. Eww. I think it's the light and not quite that color!
This is this morning. I ventured out into the backyard to get this picture. I just love this little tree.
And there is blue sky peeking through today.
Our woodpile is definitely covered isn't it?
Last but not least. I took this from our bedroom window looking down. All told, we recieved about 8 inches of "flurries". This is on top of the 4 inches we got on Sunday. I am definitely tired of winter.
It wouldn't have been so bad, but our snow blower keeps "throwing it's belt", whatever that means, so then the shovel has to make an appearance. I know that compared to some in the eastern U.S. this isn't much, but keep in mind I just came through Portland's "great blizzard" a few weeks ago, and I'm sure the snow isn't over for us either. March is due to "come in like a lion", so I'm hoping there will be a great turnaround in the weather and it will go "out like a lamb" and spring will be here.
Hubby wants to go look at new snowblowers this week and I've been putting him off, but after this latest dumping of "flurries". I think I'll take him up on it. It's really for me since I do most of the snow removal while he's working.
And now a little knitting. Two washcloths done for the "Days for girls in Africa charity." I made one while getting my oil changed yesterday. Silly me, I thought with the snow no one would be out driving and I thought I would get it done during a slow time. I forgot. I'm in Spokane, not Portland. Everyone was out driving around and the oil change took two hours, there were so many people there. Thank goodness I always have a project in my purse.
And here's Teresa's doily. I'm on row 32 now and its really looking pretty and lacey. I had a boo-boo awhile back and had to rip out 4 rows but now I'm rolling right along. I can only work on this at home when I can concentrate, so not much will be done today as I have errands to do.
Isn't it pretty? Vicki aka Stitchy McFloss is crocheting right along with me on her own doily. I'm enjoying comparing notes with her. I now have a deadline to complete this doily though. Hubby says I've gotten to see Miss Piper way more than he has and Grandpa is a bit jealous. :-) We're planning a trip to see them around the middle of March. I can't wait! More hugs and kisses from Piper. Grandpa is even planning to take a vacation day so he can have more than one day with them. Yippee!
I guess it's time for me to venture out into the winter wonderland that is Spokane this morning. I don't mean to complain about the snow. I know the moisture is much needed, and we haven't really had all that much snow this year. I'm just ready for some warm weather and sunshine. And camping weather. The lake is beckoning to me! :-)
Have a lovely, wonderful day my friends.
