I do enjoy snow, but I think I have definitely had my fill of it for this year. Yep, I am ready for spring. Bring it on!! This past weekend has been crazy when it comes to snow. I would say that we received a good 12-14 inches of snow and we are due to get more tomorrow and Wednesday. Ughhh, I am just not sure I can take much more. I have orders that need to get filled and with all the snow……well, it makes it difficult to get them done and mailed out. I told my poor hubby that if we got all the snow out of our driveway then I definitely wanted to get out. I hate being snowed in and that is how it has been lately. We were able to get out just a little bit yesterday which was nice and we went to pick out Cameron’s belated birthday gift. Do you all have any idea what it could be?!? Well, if you guessed a puppy then you are correct. We will be picking up and bringing home a new puppy in about 2-3 weeks. Cameron already gave him the name of Qbert and already has a yellow collar for him. Yep, Cameron loves yellow so it was only appropriate when he asked to get Qbert the yellow collar. I absolutely fell in love when she brought in all the puppies, but I knew before we even got there that I would love to have a black miniature schnauzer instead of a salt & pepper. I grew up with schnauzers and I know that they are great with children so I thought one would be perfect for Cameron. I personally wish I had more money because I would have purchased more then just one. They were all soooo cute!! Here are some pictures of Qbert. Cameron absolutely loves him, but he still needs to learn to be gentle with him.
Doesn’t he just have the cutest little face? Yep, I am so in love!! He absolutely loved snuggling and soon after he got nice and warm…..he was asleep in my arms. Oh, I love him!! Here is a picture after I put him in the crate with his other brothers and sisters. He was not happy that we had to leave him, but we will be able to pick him up soon.
Here are some snow pictures….we are expecting another storm and they say anywhere from 5-8 more inches. Oh geesh, why do I not live in a state filled with palm trees?!? I long for the sand between my toes and the breeze blowing the palm trees and we must not forget the sound of the ocean. Oh…..wouldn’t that be marvelous right now!! I guess I will just have to imagine that all of this white stuff is sand and the roaring of the snow plows that “SHOULD” be going through our neighborhood is the ocean roaring and I guess my weeping cherry tree would possibly pass for a palm tree, but I have to brush off all of this snow and ice first. Hmmm, yeah I don’t think it is gonna work, but it was worth the try. Here is the snow that I would love to get rid of right now. Anyone want any?
Anyone else experiencing fog? Look at this picture that I took this morning? It was so foggy that you could barely see the house across the street. It also looked like the fog froze on my weeping cherry tree. Pretty neat, but spooky looking at the same time!!
Did I show you my new rug that I got for my kitchen? Our home gets especially cold during the winter months. It doesn’t help that we are on a slab with no basement so I thought I would try to warm up the kitchen a little bit with a new rug. Here is a picture of it. More pics coming soon.
Do you like it? I thought it was pretty and it is much warmer!!
Well, I better run for now. Stay Warm & Safe!! Until Next Time ~ Lisa
