Tonight I am resting up for what they say will be a doozy. Some say 5 inches and others say 12 inches of white fluffy snow will blanket our yard by morning now if you know me I will hope for the 5 inches.
Tonight I went and met up with two of the other members of our garden club for a decadent treat at a new place in town. It was worth every penny! It was funny to leave the house without my boyfriend and my little girl JT but to put my hair up and put a clean outfit on and take off into the snowy night felt like the old days.
I made more jewelry today as I got up each hour to throw out more seed for the Doves, Juncos, Cardinals, sparrows, nuthatches etc. as the little finches hogged the feeders all day hardly letting a seed get by them and dropping to the ground. As I worked on my pieces and watched them frantically eat and eat I knew we going to get nailed by this storm. squirrels’ had been here till 3 PM then they went to their nests. Wonder where all my beautiful birds will spend the night I surly hope in the dense forest behind the house. It was a balmy 16 degrees at 5 PM tonight and only getting colder from that point on. When I woke this morning it was 0 degrees. Sadly winter is upon us yes it will be pretty to look at and I promise you will see some photos as you know me. They will not be perfect but they will tell the REAL STORY.
My shoulder is feeling OK as I had yet another shot on Wednesday. I have an appointment with surgeon to have bicep repaired when I call uncle or spring is on our doorstep you see winter is here and my home and yard require more than just one set of hands and legs to keep it clear and safe. I think I taught my doctor something I hope he remembers for many years to come that not everyone has the money to pay others to do all that needs to be done. I left in tears with him saying he would worry about me on the roof but that he now understood more about the kind of woman I was. I do not shirk responsibilities hurt or healthy.
Back to fun stuff want to see?
I also took out a tree skirt I made as a teenager yes it is ancient and some ornaments I did back then. Perfect night for it belly full of yummy cake snow falling an inch per hour or maybe a little more and the dog at my feet as I write this post. When I come in from shoveling tomorrow morning I will upload some photos for you to see.
Yes I was into sequins back in the 70’s
Have a wonderful night.
