Snow snow...go away

When you live on the shady side...of the street I mean.  What did you think I meant?  

Anyway, I takes the snow forever to leave. We were just catching up when Mother Nature in her infinite wisdom saw fit to pelt us one more time.  

My throne awaits me and it's just too nasty to get out there.  I had the entire yard cleaned and ready for spring.  Sigh.

Time to scrape off the hot tub...again.

I should be taking advantage of this little blip in my plans to clean the house and get all those indoor projects done.  

Yeah, right.  Like that's gonna happen.  I have found that housework will wait.  In fact, I know I used to get more done around here when I worked outside the home because my time was limited.  It's so easy to take that for granted and sometimes we forget that our time on earth is limited.  That lesson came home to me when I got the news that an old friend of mine was now living in a nursing home.  I knew this time would come, but I thought it would be when we were much, much older.

Long Live (please) the Queen

  1. You might want to think about bringing the hot tub indoors, or at least putting up a sort of lean-to around it with a roof. Sort of like a small porch. You have to be very creative to outwit Mother Nature.

    I think subconciously I reached that same plateau of thought a while ago about the importance of housework versus our time on this earth. Most all my friends and family are gone, and they all had nice clean houses. My little castle gets dusty and a bit cluttered, BUT I am still here and able to enjoy playing with my little dog and my laptop and my garden. And I still go to work.

    I guess the trick for us oldies but goodies (that's me) is to make friends with the dust bunnies, and get out and smell the roses while they are still in bloom.

    Keep in mind, that when the snow is falling, there are lots of roses blooming in your craft room. The sun is shining here today. I hope it shines your way too. Have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
