uhm,... no words necessary.......... ???....














Hilarious.

Mother Nature must have heard me mention the possibility of lots more snow at this time of year. I have a mental image of her looking a lot like Mrs. Claus... she hears you when you're sleeping...she knows if you're awake... you know, ... like that. She knows everything. And, she aims to please....

It was snowflaking when we went to bed and this accumulated by morning.... about 5 or so new inches.... heavy and wet. An hour shoveling with all the city sidewalk that wraps around our corner lot.











It was heavy and wet... there was a trail of clothing behind me .... coat, gloves...sweater... finally I had on just my t-shirt and cords... must have barely been cold enough to make it snow instead of rain. The rest of the week will be about the same... -3C and snow flurries several of the days...

Today it is lovely and sunny...with the very usual blue sky in winter that I love. So the opposite of where my sister lives...she never sees the sun through cloud and fog...til about .... oh, well, soon I guess. They are usually socked in from October til March in most of B.C.











Snapped this an hour ago. It is pretty mild out there...yesterday's snow melted off and now... the birds have a rustic skating rink. Frozen solid ...ice even overflowing the edges. I can hear the birdies chirping away...they sound happy enough....even the robins are joining the chorus of finches, chickadees and sparrows. I have no idea what the poor robins manage to find to eat 'til the snow goes and the ground thaws. I imagine them hopping around behind a sparrow trying to figure out what it is they find...and trying to do the same...probably looking slightly confused at the slim pickin's.

There you have it girls.... my photo a day.... make that photos a day....have a good one. Off to work on my dolly a bit now..... oh, and second java in the sunshine streaming in through the kitchen window. Craft room be darned.... no sun on that side of the house .... hahahha..... I've always thought that a lovely, sunny room covering the whole of the large double garage would have been the perfect place to build a hobby area..... hmmm... NO! what am I saying!? We have been renovating this place for 23 years now.... I better not even think it out loud or somebody will be drawing plans on paper napkins or graph paper...getting ready to tear things apart. He's a bit like Mother Nature in that respect; aims to please. No, mum's the word....definitely. That's it,.... totally mum. The laundry room still has no sink...arrgghhhhh! soon though...soon, we can reorganize the garage, park the van outside and get the hole cut in the arborite for that...and do some plumbing...yaaaaay! It will be the most beautiful and functional laundry room ever, and at the risk of bragging... (please don't hate me)... the most storage ever. I still have empty cupboards and drawers... lol... . Still looking for a beautiful mirror for the room...it is a beautiful room..it deserves the best....

Perhaps Mother Nature wanted to help you with your work out goals and gave you snow to shovel? LOL! I would think all the snow shoveling you do in the winter would keep you in great shape- but what a crappy way to work out, huh?

Better hope Mr. Vee doesn't read your blog or there will be a new project starting- hee hee! But that would be a marvelous studio, wouldn't it?

I know what you mean....I would come up with an idea for renovation, ...nag a lot, and then suddenly it would be started..not always finished though.

My house faces north and south and I never get direct sun or warmth through any window.

Sounds like you need a warm up there from all the snow...burr.

Hi Vee,

Glad that the little birdies are still chirping away ~ can't be much fun for them in all that snow.

Renovating your home for 23 years now... it can be like that.
There is always something we need to do to change or make bigger.
I hope that you get your hobby area, one day.
I have the same wish.

Hugs
Carolyn

That's a lot of snow. Pretty, but... My, it would be so nice to have a laundry room.

Serena said...

Great pics but, goodness, when does your spring normally make an appearance?

Where do you do the laundry now? I love having a separate laundry room but I sure wish they made laundry rooms bigger with lots of cupboard space.....I'm already jealous of your laundry room! I notice that, with the newer homes here, the laundry 'room' is basically a laundry tub stuck in the corner of the garage....I don't like that idea at all. We were lucky to find a rental home with a separate laundry.

I love the birdbath photo, but all that snow, yuk! Your laundry room sounds like it will be wonderful!

walking around outside without a coat on today lol I really think that picture of the bird skating rink if gorgeous :) makes me want to draw little birds skating around with little skates on :p

we can't really do any renovations since we rent from the council, we did put a shower in but needed to get permission to do that. But there is pretty much nothing stopping us from doing things to the yard, hence hubby's veggie patch and all the plants that need to get planted in the yard.

Love the photos, but geez...Mother Nature, enough is enough, give Vee some break :)

It is quite disconcerting to see that some people are still having snow while it has all become a distant memory to me. I am in a nice warm place.

MaryO said...

I hope this is the last snow you'll see for awhile, Vee. But I'm finding it hard to imagine you aren't pulling for that big sunny craft room over the garage. Maybe later....

I cannot believe all that snow, whilst here the sun is shining--it even went up to 20° this afternoon, rificulous for mid france at the end of march, but there it was! Thankyou so so much for the very knis wishes and comments you made on my blog about recuperating after a heart attack! I was feeling so down and it gave me a big lift thankyou again!
