Snow Day!

Well we finally got the snow we haven't had for most of the Winter. It started Thursday night and only dropped about 5cm. Many people didn't believe that the predicted amount of snow would come, so Friday morning they drove to work. We have had many "storms" predicted and then not show up. By lunch time there was a lot of snow on the ground and the driving was getting treacherous. Sharon and I opted to stay home and off the road.

Sharon and I bought a snowblower and it sat in the garage for around 3 weeks. We were wondering if we were going to need it this Winter. We did our driveway and sidewalk and by the time we finished it looked like we hadn't been out there! We went out again later in the evening and it looks better this morning.  I think we got the 30cm plus of snow that was promised.
It's beautiful and sunny today. The sun is warming up the tree and the snow is starting to fall off.
That lump is a dwarf Spruce tree!

The main road (with a bus running on it) was plowed Thursday night and finally was plowed again late Friday night or early Saturday morning. Our road hasn't been plowed yet and we know when it gets done we will have to dig out the end of our driveway again. :(
This is a Poppy-eye view out our windows.

The snow has been piling up on the windows and Poppy has to stand to look out the windows to check on the wild rabbits (who have the sense to stay inside their dens). She also has to jump over the snow to get outside and back inside.

Not much sewing or cooking done. We're both tired and sore - I hate this part of getting older.

It's funny that you can see design and quilting patterns in simple things. This is a photo of our "courting" chair in the backyard. All that can be seen is the back rest! It makes me think of a quilting pattern!
It is a lower chair but an adult can sit in it comfortably. Couples sit in it who are courting without sitting right next to each other or touching each other!
