Pictures to chase the snow away

I will try to have actual stitching pictures later, but thought you might enjoy more photos from the week of snow we had. It's starting to melt now. Temps are in the high 30s. I even saw a robin. Spring is coming. I feel it.

Down through the yard February 3rd

Across the street the same morning.

Outside my office

Snow on branches at the office.

The big boys helping me shovel out the car. They had the gall to eat snow and then shiver pitifully when their father opened the window. Anything to cast me as the wicked, cookie-giving, tummy-rubbing step mother.

In the yard. They don't like snow. Not at these amounts.

And pix from the Polar Bear Plunge.

The Plunge Nation (that is what they call us)getting ready to go in. The energy coming off of them was amazing.

Me getting ready to go in. I know my outfit looked like crap. The hat is the key to staying warm during the plunge. You can jump in freezing water in a shirt and bathing suit, as long as you have that hat on to keep body heat in. And I made sure to wear red lipstick. Any situation is more bearable when you wear red lipstick.

After I came out. Still smiling, just a bit cold.

The view from the line to get back on the bus. Yes, folks, I was in a blizzard. HTB did not complain. Not once. I love that man.

So, here's to warm spring days leading into colorful flowers, and hot summer afternoons, spent in the pool!

I still can't believe you did that. With a smile on your face, no less.

Your snow photos make me shiver with bad memories even though they are beautiful. Don't you just love seeing the sunshine and melting now?

Wow, you did a polar bear swim. How brave you are. The red lipstick is a perfect touch!

Gal, you are way more brave than I to jump in a cold body of water in the winter!

Shocka and Beazer are beautiful boys! And I love the photos and commentaries for Robbie and Chancey.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
