Oh boy ...

After one hour and forty-five minutes of snowing ...

The snow started at about 8:30 this morning. I'd prepared yesterday by filling the feeders and the heated bird bath for the various critters. Got the kerosene heater ready with an extra few gallons of kerosene in case the electricity fails. I moved the gas grill so I could easily get to it if I wanted something hot to eat while the power was out. I also bought peanut butter and bread for me and tuna for the furry ones. Lastly, swept the porches and covered my car. My cousin gave me a car windshield cover for Christmas. What a great gift. It's got covered magnets in each corner and a little flap at both front windows that I closed the door on. No way it can come off. It even covers the wipers so they won't freeze. This is one of those great gifts that make my life a bit easier.

Most of the snow melted yesterday. The sun was so warm I only had to have on sweats and gloves. No coat needed although it was very cold in the shade. The snow was so dry, only a broom was needed for removal. That was wonderful. The snow shovel is too long for me and my shoulders just can't manage the weight of it. 

Mister is much better now that he is taking a glipizide pill every day. He's gained a little weight and his coat seems fuller. He is much more active and as happy as that makes me, it irritates Miss Cleo. He likes to pounce on her when she's sleeping. Just like brother and sister. :-)

Huh? What snow?
I'm in the middle of sorting through an early phase of Spring cleaning. Please excuse the mess in the background. Mister and Miss Cleo love playing in and around piles of "stuff". They're like kids with a fort. 

I've decided I'm going to take a break from sorting and cleaning today and tomorrow and work on some knitting, crocheting and a small sewing project I want to attempt. So, with the blizzard still blizzard-ing out there ... I'm going to prepare a small pot of hot lemony tea and do what I love best ... crafting.

If you're in the blizzard area, I hope you stay warm and have plenty of what you need and the electricity stays on for everyone. 


  1. Wow it's coming down so fast, gorgeous though if you can stay at home and enjoy it !
    My granddaughter has one of those windshield covers, it's a great idea, and saves lots of time having to scrape those windows.
    Stay warm friend.

  2. Hi LesleyAnn! I love that windshield cover. I'll have to get one for Goodman as he works at night, now, and when he starts home at 6:30 a.m. his windshield is usually a mess. Great idea.

    Glad to hear your kitty is doing better and aggravating his sister, too. lol

    We got an inch of snow a few days back, but it's gone, and we're waiting on the next round that we should get tonight. I do hope the power stays on for you and us, but we'll be okay anyway.
    I can't wait to see what you're making...

    Have a great weekend!
