Mother Nature

This was the scene this morning on the way to work.  With the snow, sleet, and rain, they are calling for up to 7 inches of this stuff.  Mother nature is not done with winter for us.

I am sick of not seeing the sun.  We have only seen the sun maybe a total of 8 hours in the last 10 days.  Yuck!!!!!!

Hope you have a great day.

Sara, is a very playful dog.  She is two years old now.  We tried to get another Corgi, but boy, are they hard to come by, and very expensive!  We have decided that two dogs is enough and we will wait until Jake passes.  He is doing pretty darn good for a 13 year old lab.

Did I say that our snow was melting?  Well, you will have to ignore what I said.  We are supposed to get another 3 to 7 inches tomorrow, mixed with sleet.  I WANT SPRING!!!

Hope you have a great day.

Go away!

I was hoping to get a better picture of the clouds way in the distance.  They were pretty awesome looking.  The sun is going to finally shine after a week of no sun in sight.  The 30 inches of snow is starting to melt fast, with the rains, and the warmer weather.

Not much else to report.  The hubby keeps telling me, it has been a week since you blogged, it has been a week since you blogged.  So, here I am blogging.

Waiting for the nice warm weather to show up and stay, so that I can spend some time outside.

The hubby has finally returned to work after two months off.  Things sure can go to hell in a hand basket when one of you is not working!  Life goes on as they say.

Have a great week.

Now you see it and now you don't!

You probably know by now that we received around 30 + inches of snow on Tuesday.  Some as melted but not much!  The winds have carried some away, and of course a lot has settled.  Winter decided to hit us a little late this year.

I have not done a whole lot in the last week.  Still going through the house and purging.  I now have three rooms done and five more to go.  I have haven't done  a lot weaving.  It has gone to the wayside for now.  When I get a hair up my butt, I do some weaving.  I have lots of projects started but nothing finished.  

Waiting for it to get warmer and then it will be time to start being outside a little more.  Hopefully spring comes a little faster than winter did and stays longer.

Have a great day.

This was the skies yesterday, on the way home from work.

The weather is making big changes again!  Going from 40's and 50's down to 20 with the wind chill factors, not very good!  Mother nature is throwing everything at us this year.   Still haven't had a ton of snow though.

The hubby is still laid off of work.  It is now going on two months.  The first time in a long time.  My work is still going great.

Not much else is happening.   Stick pretty close to home and just do the day to day things that need to get done.  I have started on going through the house and getting rid of some clutter and STUFF.  Some people come and visit and will tell us that we have STUFF.  So, this lady is getting rid of  a lot of that stuff!  I have barely begun and I have a couple of rooms that are going to be major projects and the whole family is going to be in on that!

Hope you are having a great day.

This is the sky from yesterday morning.  I went to take the dogs out, and saw all the pink and wanted to take a picture.   Once I was back outside with the camera, the best part of the sun rising was gone, and this picture was the best I could get!  Now today is a rainy day, no pictures of that.  Who needs to start their day with gloomy weather!

Here we go, not much to blog about.  Went to to work and came home and before you know it, it is time to go to bed and get back up to start a new day.

Matt is still home, he had the dishes all done and the horses fed.  It is nice to get a little pampered, once in a while.

Have a great day.

I am going to try!

Well.. it has been awhile!  I am going to try to blog again.  We shall see how it goes.  The pictures were taken Friday on my way home from work.   We had a couple of fast moving snow squalls.

Not much has been going on.  I have been just trying to get through the winter.  The hubby has only worked two full weeks this year, and three weeks with only 3 days in each week.  So, money is tight and we pretty much stick close to home and relax.

We are now down to just a few chickens for eggs, the pony, mule and the two big horses. The farm is slowly dwindling down.  I haven't taken any more riding lessons, but they will be starting as soon as this weather decides on what it is going to do!

Work is going great, still love doing my job.  I only work around 33 hours a week.  So, it makes it nice.  I can do other things on the days that I only work for 5 hours.  I haven't done much weaving, I have  been telling myself that I need to get back to it.  I just hate getting home from work, and thinking that I need to weave also,  I like going home and relaxing after work.

Hope you had a great weekend, and those of you who don't really know what weekends are, hope you are having a great Sunday.
