The original forecast for the beginning of the week was not terribly alarming…three inches of snow one evening and three inches the next day.
In the end we only had about two inches of snow.
My youngest son stopped by to enjoy some homemade chicken noodle soup, salad and cornbread. He took a quick run to a local Dollar Store and Koopa, his young blue nose pit, kept watch for him.
He’s so muscular ! It’s hard to believe that he was once this little pup, but even then the muscles were just rippling :
He’s still mostly puppy in exuberance and behavior, but grown up a bit now to a handsome young dog. He cuddled up with me for awhile and I snuck off for the camera while he was in a lovey-dovey mood.
I have a Pee Gee Hygrandea and in the late fall, I clip some branches and store them in the cellar to dry. I bring them up around this time each year when the ‘drearies’ hit mid-winter. I have a few figurines here that celebrate Valentine’s Day each year around this time :)
The forecast for the next five or so days indicates that we’ll have snow “showers” each day and are moving into some bitter temperatures for days on end. The snow that we have now will be staying on the ground and added to for awhile.
