Just when we thought we were going to make a graceful (and warm) slide into Spring, Winter heard how happy we were and decided to come back and show us who's boss. And it snowed. Now I must admit, it was pretty. And it still is! But I hope all my budded things make it through this "weather event". :-)
This is looking out the window of our den, facing the front yard.
Snowflakes are so hard to capture.. but do you see them? Look closely! :-)
The pond area.. poor daffodils are leaning under the weight of the snow.
The snow kept coming and overnight piled up pretty high.
The Chestnut trees loom dark against the gray sky.
Our grandsons built a little snowman on the deck. :-)
Our adorable little Caleb stayed out playing in the now for a long time.
Our son Travis snapped this image from his car as he made his way up steep Corbett Hill Road.
Dayle just took my Lumix out and took a few photos of the snow this morning, the sky is clearing and the sun will melt the snow pretty fast, but it's still pretty for now. This is our Walnut tree with each branch and twig with snow on it.
The front of the house with more snow.. and sunshine!
I think the daffodils will make it, do you?
Daffodils 1, snow 0. :-)
The barn Dayle built. Almost completely by himself. The kids and I helped raise some rafters while he nailed them down. But he designed it, bought all the lumber and nails, the metal roofing and installed it, he built all the stalls inside for our herd of Nubian dairy goats, our 2 horses, 2 Angora goats and one black sheep. :-)
And my dream come true, the red farmhouse looks charming in the snow, yes?
And here he is during our romantic dinner at Bumper's Grill. We met when I was 14 and a freshman in HS and he was an "older man" at 16 and a junior. I love this guy.
I had my favorite, the filet mignon with Bordelaise sauce. I did splurge and had a baked potato and I must say, after not having one for over 3 months, it made the steak dinner sooOOoo much more delicious. But I was back on the low carb wagon the next day. I'm on one of those dreaded plateaus and the scale has not budged for a LONG time. ::sigh::
Meeka visiting Dayle for a chest rub. :-)
Dayle made a low carb meal for me this weekend. Sauteed chicken tenderloins with mushrooms and a sliced perfectly ripe avocado drizzled with ranch dressing. :-)
I took off the Valentine tablecloth and put on the new spring-y one I recently got that fits the table now that we have more leaves in it due to having 7 people at the dinner table now. :-) See the snow falling outside?
I notice that my red leaved Shamrock had a stem of pink flowers blooming. Sweet.
Buddy on my lap and Shelby on her dog bed by the tv cabinet.
We have a pair of hummingbirds that are wintering over as in past years. We have to be very vigilant that the feeder remains full as there is absolutely no other food for the little darlings to be found.
Last but not least, darling little Paige, my younger granddaughter that lives far far FAR away in Ohio. She's a real character and my daughter Amy posted this photo of her on Facebook. How cute is she?
I want to thank all of my readers that commented on my Call to Action blog post. I remain steadfast in wanting to see the assault rifle ban re-installed. Wish our country luck in having our legislators see the light and choose the lives of our school children over lining their bank accounts with NRA blood money.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
