Inside and Outside

Inside: Can you see what I have been doing during this latest snow storm - Yep!! Getting out the bunnies and spring things - I think wishful thinking that next week it will be 50 and sunny. There has also been sock knitting and trying to finish up a spring sweater that I started last year. Also today was a pajama day - you know - stay in your pajama pants all day - and that I did. Outside: We had to get out the big guns for this one. We try to use the garden tractor but we are just getting to much snow and are running out of places to push it.

I hope you all have a good weekend. The finals for curling are going to be on soon and after all that curling we have watched over the last 2 weeks I need to go watch this. See you next week - it will be March!! Hopefully 50 and sunny.....

Yesterday - Today - What a difference

That old saying what a difference a day makes is true. In the picture below its really hard to tell how hard it is snowing, but believe me it was coming down and its done that now for about 2 weeks. Every single day, sometime during the day its snows around here. We have been lucky - we have lots of snow, but we could have more. Now skip down to the next picture. See that sunshine - it started early this morning and has continued throughout the day. Boy did we need this. Sunshine really helps those winter blah's!! I'm not getting to excited though - those weather people say we could be getting another storm by Monday.

To keep me from going stir crazy these last few weeks - and also to stay somewhat in shape I took advantge of being 60 - I joined our local rec center. Once you are 60 you can join for 13 months for $100.00. I thought that was a pretty good deal so I signed up and have been walking on their track several times a week. Just one thing I have noticed since starting this, their mile seems a lot longer than the one I walk with Marley. Marley and I were walking around 2 miles last fall - just saying maybe their measuring is off -(LOL). I get a mile in but those last few laps are a struggle.
Hope you are all enjoying some clear and sunny weather today. Where are you spring??

Today is Tom's BD and he is 60. I have been 60 since back in October, so now we are even again being the same age - that makes me feel better. I don't want to be 60 alone!! Now that were at this age it doesn't really seem that old to me. As I was trying to decide what to say here today I just kept thinking back all those years ago - say like 16 when we started dating, 20 when we got married, 20s and 30s when we had kids, 30s and 40s when we were farming, 50s when he got his own horse, etc. I think he will agree with me that we have had a pretty good life and most of it would not do over. So here is to the next years of our life together and hopefully many more birthday celebrations. Love you!!

P.S. I will be back with pictures of the cheese cake I'm making for tonight. Mine are usually out of a box, but not this one. You have to have something special for 60.
