Quite a Week!

It has been quite a week, give or take a few days. The days all run in together during weeks like this past one.

We have had one snow storm after another. Snow, snow and more snow, mixed in with a bit of rain, rising and falling temperatures and ice on the roads. Road reports from Halifax early this morning told of buses sliding sideways on hills and cars off the road. Our area schools, in fact most schools in the province are closed today.

I cancelled our choir practice last night because of impending weather, and I am glad I did. I figured that even if one lived close to the church, they were still taking a chance on the roads. Ours is still snow covered and I imagine there is ice underneath.
The oil man just came to fill our tank. I am thankful that our daughter had cleared a way to it. Before she started, you couldn't see the tank.

I had decided last Sunday, that I was going to withdraw from activities this week. Picked a good one. All activities were cancelled because of storms. Oh well, I did take time off from FB and Twitter, and didn't read as many blogs as I usually do. In fact, I didn't do much this past week. Most days, I just thought about doing things.  Energy had packed her bags and left, and in her place pain and depression had moved in. However, I am on my way to recovery once again. This up and down stuff is a ridiculous way to spend one's days, but I guess it is better than the alternative, although there have been times when I didn't think that way. BUT, I got past that way of thinking too.

I didn't feel much like taking pictures of the snow, but this morning I decided to put a few here.

Poor birdies. It's been hard to get feed to them.

On a few occasions I just threw the seed on the snow.

It is difficult to really see the amount of snow.
The driveway was plowed yesterday.

There is a Mourning Dove almost in the middle of the picture,
but it is hard to see.
Sadie is doing ok, and I am too.


  1. Hello Bonnie. Wow that is some snow! It does look beautiful in your photos, but I know it can be a pain when it just snows and stays! I'm sorry to hear that you've been in pain and depressed :( Any time you feel like you need a virtual ear for listening, you know where I am!
    Take care,
    Love Catherine

    1. Thank you so much Catherine. I am just one of those people who struggle with the ups and downs of life. Felting is helpful in leaving troubles behind and just poking that needle, trying to forget things that cause this roller coaster ride I sometimes get on.

  2. So much snow, Bonnie.
    I am praying you feel better soon.


  3. Just checking to see you you are faring this week, Bonnie

    Warm hugs

    1. Thank you Margie. I am feeling better. It just takes time to get past these moods. Thank you for caring. Hugs to you.

    2. I am so glad you are feeling better.
      Saturday is Valentine's day, I don't know if you celebrate it but I wish you a lovely day!
      I guess I will get hubby a box of chocolates ... LOL

      Off to bed here as I have to get up early and head down to Colorado Springs for a dentist appt. (I kept my dentist there when we moved to Denver in 2012)

      It's been very mild here all week and we have no snow but I heard a storm is coming in on Sat.

      Good Night Bonnie, take care


    3. Dear Margie, you are a sweetheart. Thank you for checking in. Hugs to you, and I hope you have a good week.

  4. So sorry to hear about your hard weather, Bonnie and your poor health. This kind of weather certainly makes underlying health conditions harder to live with. :-( I hope the snow melts before long and you start to feel better.

    1. Winter tends to get me down, but I struggle through. It will be a while before all this snow melts, but the days are getting longer and I am feeling stronger, at least for now. Thanks for dropping by. Hope the clarinet time is going smoothly. I still haven't taken mine out.
