It's so pretty (but stinkin' cold outside). This is just a photo my hubby took of one of our lilac bushes. It just snowed lightly this evening. No accumulation, just enough to cover all of the ugly black, salted and sooted stuff already on the ground.
We are having a huge hemlock dropped tomorrow. It's between the house and the shop. with only about 15 feet in between. My hope is that it hits NOTHING... but if it has to hit anything, it's the house and not the shop. My reasoning... you ask? The house is insured, but the shop is not. Tomorrow is going to be a nerve-racking day. However, the man who is doing the "dropping" is someone we trust. He is also insured. So... he says he can start at 9 am and be done by noon. He will probably bring his 3 kids with him to help. My husband will also help. I'm thinking some good old fashioned macaroni and cheese might be in order for lunch. What do ya think? Also, the man is going through some very difficult times... and we are trying to encourage him and his kids as best we can through the grace that is shown to us every day.
The pic that is supposed to be of me... (I guess)it's the profile pic), is one of my girls... Brandy. She loves to play in the snow. I don't think you can see it in the profile pic, but I think you can see it rather clearly here on her chin and her eye-brows the snow she's plowed through. We love to watch her play in the snow. She leaps like a deer... it's too funny. I caught it on video last winter. It's hilarious. Three feet of snow does not slow this pooch down!
