And today is just as wonderful.
The sun is shining and the birds are beginning to sing.
It is warming up and the snow is melting.
Time to say goodbye to winter and hello to spring.
I'm ready. Aren't you?

We awoke this morning to over 20" of freshly fallen snow.
Shoveling paths for the dogs (and the poor, little birds) began at 6:30 a.m.
Snow drifts made art sculptures in the yard and it is all so pretty, but this much snow is causing problems in our area.
There are miles and miles of stranded motorists on the interstate so the National Guard has been called in. Bless them for their efforts in this time of need. We hope to stay inside for the day and stay as snug as bugs in a rug.
Winter is all around me, but eternal spring is in my heart.
Two more weeks.
Stay safe and warm!

I'm staying indoors as much as possible and staying busy.
I'm redoing our kitchen cabinets with a glaze and poly finish.
Just one of my many projects going on here.
I'll share soon.
And if anyone wants any snow, I have plenty of that to share, too!

Tucked way back off the road was this old, rustic building that looked like a junk shop. Our type of shop.
I could see some good old rust and crust treasures outside of the shop.
And once we entered the building, we could see that it was stuffed to the rafters with all types of vintage and antique goodness.
The owner was as unique as the items he's collected over the years.
Big guy. Bib overalls. Long hair and a beard. And as smart and as nice as they come!
He knew his history and he knew the actual worth of all his items.
He was one serious collector and everything was for sale. Well, almost everything.
On the far end of that porch was a glider. A two seater. Rustic, yet cute as a button.
Hmmm...I never seem to have enough seating in our backyard that overlooks the lake.
"So how much for that little glider on the front porch?" I ask.
He says, "Sorry, but that belongs to my wife and she won't sell it. She still likes to sit on it in the evenings."
Well, that's disappointing. I was sure I heard that little glider calling my name. Oh, well! As long as someone still appreciates it.
Maybe someday, another little glider will find me and want to go home with me. Someday.

Everyone seems to be getting some snow lately.
And so did we...but it wasn't predicted or in the forecast.
First we had some ice and then over 6 inches of snow.
It's beautiful, but causes plenty of problems when no one is prepared.
I took these photos early this morning. And I took the dogs for a walk.
They are both 10 years old, but they acted like little pups and had fun frolicking in the snow.
Me? I'm back in the house, sitting at the window that overlooks the lake.
I think I'll stay put for the rest of the day.
I like staying warm and being as snug as a bug in a rug!

So this shop owner is making a commitment to give the shop a boost this weekend.
Cross your fingers! I can use all the help I can get.
Have a wonderful weekend!
