EDIT:  We ended up with 19 inches! We don't shovel if we can drive the truck through it, but 19 inches is a bit too much! Unfortunately, my shovel gave up the ghost yesterday (even after super glue and duct tape); Mister forgot and left his shovel in the barn after the last storm! So after he swims over there to retrieve it in the morning, we'll have to rotate shifts!

Late this afternoon I wanted to get to the bird feeder so I took a cookie sheet and used it like a scoop! Where there's a will, there's a way!

Jade, the little girl I babysit, saw the spool craft I made for the Easter Swap and wanted to make one herself. So I gave her a small (3/4", 2cm) craft spool and a few doodads, and this is what she came up with:

Butterflies on toothpicks, how creative!

We got clobbered again with another big snowstorm yesterday and today. At least it will melt fast!

(anyone for a swing?)

Hi Sue,
I just read your fun comment on my blog. You're a girl after my own heart! I'm always singing corny tunes around the house to my husband. He chuckles and rolls his eyes. Yes...When I was a girl and we'd visit Gramma and Grampa's... Green Acres really was the place for me! I miss all the cute old timey television programs like Green Acres, Gilligan's Island and Leave It To Beaver.
Your little charge has created such adorable little spoolies! I'm working on mine today, too.
Have a happy day...

What a lovely contrast those bright butterflies are with the chilly gloom of the snowstorm outside!

Jade did a great job. You taught her very well. I do not believe I would survive if I lived where it snowed like this. I am cold all the time.

It's been a long, long time since I saw that much snow. Glad that I'm a desert dweller now!
