I just melted into a puddle when I found this picture. Isn’t she cute?
I’m about to give up any hope of spring this year. We can’t tell where our driveway pad begins or ends, or where the driveway is for sure right now. The forecast is grim – 70% chance of more snow today, then ‘wintery mix’ through about Wednesday of next week, I think. Oh, joy.
We wanted to put up Fritz the Cat on the mailbox, but I don’t think we’ll even try to drive down – and back up – the ‘ski slope’ today. I’M not driving down today, though my husband might – just to prove he can.
I’m working again on figuring out how to do the stuff I need to do on the new computer. This is really a challenge for this old broad. Things I used to do very easily are now a half-day’s project, figuring out how it is done NOW.
For example, on my website I’m ending the contest for February and starting the one for March. My website data base is not ‘live’ yet, so I’m working around that while my guru son gets it going. The Word program I have here is very, very different. If I can do my newsletter, I need to figure out how to make it into a PDF and how I upload it, then send it out. The one today is for my subscribers. The one for tomorrow is for my artists. They MAY be late this month…
The happy thing is that we could be trapped up here for a month or more and I wouldn’t get bored. We have lots of mailbox decorations, plus the “Patchwork Popadoo” (metal yard art bird) waiting in the shop for me to paint. My husband is looking at other scrap metal plus a shovel to see if any ideas occur as to another shovel bird.
UPDATE – It’s now about two hours later. My husband decided that we should drive down to see if we could get our mail, put up the Fritz mailbox decoration, and make a run to town to get food, since the forecast is so grim.
We did all that and just finished lunch. Our driveway was the worst part of the trip, though there were many patches of ice on the road between here and town.
Stay safe and warm, everyone.
