This is what our driveway looked like last week.
This week, there’s no snow in the middle, and it’s a lot wider too. Not quite so muddy.
I think spring is coming.
About three weeks ago last year it was about minus 20 and we spent a sunday afternoon making Banner pull us up and down the driveway on a toboggan. There was no dirt in sight.
We wanted to do the same thing this year, but there wasn’t even enough snow on the driveway to make a good snowball.
Not that I’m complaining.
I miss seeing my garden. It’s still buried under 6 inches of snow, but I can see the edges of the raised beds where the snow has melted a bit.
The willows are budding everywhere. I snapped these last week while I was waiting for Darryl to get ready to go somewhere.
Sadie and I went for a walk the other day when it was gorgeously sunny out and I took this photo so you could see how close to spring we really are.
I know I keep talking about spring here, but that’s only because this year is so unusual.
This year we didn’t see moose around here either.
Until a couple of days ago.
She was standing right by the road below our house when I drove by so I jumped out and got a few pics.
Moose are such ugly, graceful animals.
Speaking of ugly, check out the prices for these burgers. Inflation’s really hit us hard here in K-town.
Speaking of graceful, check out the timberwork my husband did.
Here’s some closeups.
He’s so talented.:)
He’d be happy to do timberwork all the time, but condos aren’t usually built of timbers nowadays. Try concrete and I-joists.
Speaking of eyes, Sadie loves to look at herself in the mirror.
I put a hanky on her head and she left it there. Didn’t care at all. She went for a ride on her zebra so she could show all her stuffed friends.
I know this post was a bit scattered, but I just had some recent photos to share and they weren’t really long enough for their own posts.
I know you don’t mind.
Maybe the next one will be more cohesive.
Maybe I could talk about spring.
