I do believe we have quite enough snow now, thank you very much!! Yesterday we were hit with yet another storm, (number 11, I think) giving us another 8" or so on the ground, and even higher snowbanks. The winds have whipped up some tremendous drifts- we have one across our back deck that is amazing! The driving around the city is treacherous because visibility at intersections is so poor. I keep telling our son Ian, the meteorologist, that he can lay off on the snow anytime now, and he keeps reminding us he doesn't make the weather, he only reports it...
I am ready for spring...NOW!!! Bring it on!
Here is a photo of our home, taken today, from the corner of our front lawn - yes, the lawn is under there somewhere, I am sure... As you can see, the sky is grey, and we're told that yet another storm is on it's way for later this weekend. Great!!
Mark is on his way home from Halifax today, for his Spring Break. I wil be so glad to see him walk through the door tonight, home safe and sound...
Ollie is getting tired of winter too - looking out at all that white is getting boring.. he would much rather be lying in the open (screened) window, smelling the summer breeze and freshly cut grass, and watching all the birdies in the apple trees in our backyard....
On the upside, this winter weather has been great for getting sewing done, as you just don't want to go outside when the snow is up to your hips and the temps are well below freezing. At least we are approaching the end of February- although we will no doubt see a few more snowfalls in March, surely the minus 40 windchills are behind us now, and spring cannot be too far away..at least that's what I keep telling myself!
I am hoping to finish up several small pieces this weekend and get them to the Framer early next week. One is a cross stitch of an Amish Quilt, done on black. The other is a piece of needlefelting. Stay tuned for pics!
