Oh winter...

Oh winter.  I'm tired of you. I'm usually not, but right now, I am.  30-40 mph winds paired with below freezing temps means my pipes will likely fall into the below freezing zone as well if we're not careful. 18 times I've thawed pipes this winter. I'd like to not make it 19 thank.you.very.much.

Alas, we have more winter.  And when there's a momentous break of the gusting winds, we try very hard to get out there, even for a few moments.

Believe it or not, it's been winter forever, and we found something new to do in our yard.  The glorious part of cross country skis and sleds paired with a slight bit of decline on snow that more resembles ice=speed.

So...there you have it.  The one last thing we figured out that was fun about winter that we just couldn't miss.  We did it all now-we've done all winter has to offer time and time again.  And now, it's time for the sap to start running, our boots to get muddy and to uncover the strawberries from hibernation, rototill the garden and to pull  weeds from the flower beds.  Spring, we're ready to spring into you, full throttle.


  1. I think you've been more than patient! C'mon spring, give 'em a break!

  2. I just love winters but where I live the winters are not severe, infact we never get any snow, but this looks beautiful a thick white blanket of snow. Lets trade places.
