I like blogging to be like food — seasonal. Current. But, something about the extremity of this past winter demands a little documentation. Here are a few windows into the winter of 2015 from this quarter acre suburban lot.
More recent event: I found a dead eagle yesterday. The wings are in my freezer. I know! I know! — I have a call in to the authorities.
A wonderful look in the rear view mirror …
thank goodness it’s a backward look now! (tho they are predicting three more inches of snow over the next couple of days).
Gosh, we had it so easy down on LI and in NYC. I cannot believe the mountain of snow that fell on your head! You will look back on it, I am sure, with wonder — maybe in the summer, maybe in a few years. I bet it was magical, even if it was a pain. Love these images you have shared. The light is stunning, morning and night. Love them the most. And of course the rolling,frolicking dog. My transition from cat- to dog-person was an easy one. Each one I love more than the last. Even with aggression and dysfunction, I love him dearly. I hope your boy comes to his senses soon.
And, more than anything, welcome back to the blogosphere! I missed you! And I have a small bd gift sitting and waiting to be mailed. Soon! Before July anyway, that is my goal.
Hi Ginny. I am so glad to be back. Not posting or reading blogs was something I could let go, so I did, but it was one of the more disorienting conditions… Finn will settle down. I know it. I feel the dog person in me stepping forward… learning consistency, clarity of command, authoritative stances (whew! tough ones for me…. )
p.s. do you have to turn in the eagle?
eagles are protected and to pick up so much as a feather is against the law. I don’t know what they’ll say. If I do, so be it.
what a great record of your loooooong winter Dee!
My favourite is the no special effects snow photo
“I worried about power and the house and filed first ever insurance claim for damage”
it tells the story straight
hi Mo. can’t wait to wander your way and see what you’ve been up to!
Oh my …. aaaaaaall this snow ….
Whishing you the best and snowbreak SOON !
thanks… spring has all new meaning this year (but the same meaning)
What a swell review. All that worry and all that snow. How art saves our lives in times like these. Onward soon. We will have a bit of snow tomorrow…then surely Spring.
And books, right?
This weather is really unbeliable. How is it that you are so buried, while we are having the mildest earliest spring ever? I’m going to visit my sister in Providence in May- wondering if there will still be snow when I get there? I wish you warmth!
Do love your collages & that stitching on the green and blue cloths, especially the little circles.
There CAN’T still be snow come May. I just refuse to believe it possible. Snow in May?! Though one year we got two feet of snow on April Fools Day.
These memories will hold you for many years to come.
You are so right!
the mountains of snow you live in! the light at least is something to be grateful for, a small comfort I’m sure……Finn, I assume, went completely wild, our Django did in the thin sprinkling we experienced. I hope Spring is around the corner by now, we enjoyed a gloriously sun shiny day yesterday, how I love the surprising warmth of early sun after the grey winters we endure over here.
Your diary is delightful and I very much appreciate your heartfelt comments
