Yes, I can hardly believe my eyes, but I'm pretty sure that right up there, up there above the trees is blue sky, and wait, yes, there is hardly any wind. A little respite from the past days of cloud and snow and cold, cold, cold.
Not that it isn't cold out now, but it is not as cold. The great pile of snow has gone down quite a bit, and best of all the road is bare. There are 'warmer' days ahead, well relatively warmer.
Poor Sadie, has had a terrible time trying to find a place to do her 'business'. Walking on ice is definitely not her favourite thing.
Normalcy has returned, after the Christmas/New Years celebration, and it is back to routine, which I welcome.
Our Pastor and wife have a new addition to their family. A daughter was born on January 31st. So wonderful. The little one was oohed and awed over, by her church family last Sunday. It will be so nice watching her grow, as we did their first daughter. It is going to be fun! Can you imagine it? A two year old and a baby........
I am having a hard time settling into one thing, since Christmas. I have painted some bookmarks, done some writing, needle felting, and reading. I have also been playing my uke. Love it! My young fellow has started back at piano lessons, and pleasantly surprised me by showing how he had worked very hard over the holidays learning to read the notes and know their names.
I have a little squirrel invading my bird feeders, and am not too pleased, but it can't be helped, just so long as it doesn't GET IN THE HOUSE! Pheasant have also paid a visit a few times, during the worst of the days past. I haven't seen them in a while.
Appointment with my doctor, has been cancelled three times, due to weather, and now he's sick. I am not all that disappointed, but felt bad for his secretary who had to make all the calls and change appointment dates. I wouldn't want her job, but she told me, most people are understanding.
