Holy Cow! How did the time get away from me? Thank you for all the great birthday good wishes. I have been celebrating and celebrating - mostly outside in the snow. Guess I just can't get enough of the snow. Now I know that some of you lifetime snow-folk don't find the same joy in the white stuff as I do, but boy-oh-boy are we having fun!
Here is a typical view of Daisy at play.
She is a master at 'breaking trail.' Why would you want to retrace your steps when there is fresh, fluffy snow to be tromped through?
She also likes tackling the VERY high piles that the snowplows leave behind. Here she is near one of the summits.
Even with all the wintry weather, there are still squirrels up in the trees. The need to be chased!
Looks like she may have spotted one.
Just when you think that you've seen a lot, another storm passes our way.
Can you find the mailbox?
Have I mentioned that I enjoy shoveling?
I cleared the driveway and the entrance to Hubby's side of the garage last week during a storm. Now I'm not silly about it. I left the entrance to my side of the garage covered. Hubby likes the chance to play with the snow thrower, too. With a 4wd pick-up, I knew I could get out if I had to. It's fun that there's enough snow to share.
The next day, the sky was clear and so were some of the sidewalks. Daisy and I ventured out on a walk.Poor girl, she had to work at getting a good view.
Look at The Common.
I got this photo before they cleared the sidewalks. It's almost filled with snow. I think it looks beautiful and peaceful.
All of that outdoor activity can make a girl tired.
She does love her pillow pal . . . . but then she made a new discovery upstairs.
Is she trying to tell me she would like a bedroom of her very own?
On the quilting front, I have been getting some stitches in my hexagon project every day. I finished the last of the diamonds and now need to make some odd shapes to fill in the outer edges.
This will fill in the top edge.
And this will fill in the sides.
Now that the block construction is done, the top is growing quickly. It's almost exhilarating to see the progress.
Some very exciting things are happening here at home right now. If I am not around much in the coming weeks, just know I am very busy and will be back soon with all the details . . . . stay tuned.
