Making the most of the "snow".

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Hi expectations! That's what I have had, all week as the Nor'Easter, was expecting to bring the biggest snowfall, of the year! Oh boy!! emoticon

I love snow and making snow angels, sledding, building snowmen, throwing snowballs, making snow cream, to name a few. Oh, and let's not forget, catching snowflakes on the tongue! emoticon

Imagine the disappointment when I heard rain, at 1 am. flattening what snow we had gotten into a slushy mess. emoticon

So, ever the one to make the best of things, I headed out in my PJs and did a couple things on the side porch.

It is Valentine's week, so first off, a heart to share with my Spark friends.

Here is a mini snowman. See? He is doing arm rotations. His Valentine chair is waiting until the workout is over.

I tossed a few snowballs out to the angel, in the back yard.

As some of you know, my car needs a new engine. emoticon so the shop gave me a Lexus to drive around until I get my car back.

This is a pretty nice view from the porch.

Now to the front steps. Last night the snow was covering so much more, but as you can see, it is gray slush, this morning.

On the bright side, my neighbor brought me these beautiful Tulips, as a pre Spring surprise!

I may love snow, but Tulips are my favorite flower. Perfect for Valentine's day, too.

Ever the optimist, I will look forward to the chance of bit more snow,, tonight!
The weather people can be wrong in both directions, so I may be looking at a foot on Friday!

For those of you, tired of snow, I wish you all sunshine, but for me, bring it on!

I will be heading in the yard and attempting more snow fun, then coming in for hot cocoa.

I will leave you with a snowman from another time.

    Lovely blog Chris. I like your perspective on snow, and bringing in the focus the many ways we can enjoy it. I appreciate your approach. Snow is here, like it or not. May as well embrace it.

The tulips are well placed in your blog. Brought in just at the right time to remind us that the snow is not our total reality. Spring flowers will be here soon. And the tulips are beautiful.

Your blog was appropriate for the spirit of Valentines Day. Upbeat and full of good feelings.

Our winter here in Michigan is beginning to feel dreary. Your blog was just what was needed.

Let us keep on with our Sparking as we march toward spring. Love your creativity.

    Chris, That looks like a fun amount of snow And with your creativity you share the nice part about enjoying snow (not everyone gets to do this) and not just complain about the inconveniences of it as people like me tend to do.

    I loved your blog Chris! The snowman is perfect beside his waiting chair, lol.

Beautiful tulips, they let you know that Spring is on it's way!

We've had constant snow for several months now so we'll be glad to see it gone!

    I would gladly give you half of our 14 inches if I could. We are due freezing rain this afternoon before it turns back into snow tonight. I am not fond of snow!

    What a cute blog, Chris, Thanks for sharing.

Love your snowman and the heart. I think you got just enough snow, I could handle that.
We have so much most of us are just sick of it.

Hugs Mary
