time is running out....

Old Man winter has been very confused in our next of the woods this year.  We're even giving him an extra day in February to try to get it together and to produce some snow and still nothing {frown}.

I'm not greedy, really I'm not, but we need one good snow fall.  Just enough snow that the kids could break out their sleds for a day.  Instead of them arguing before school in the morning that I don't need a coat today the weather man said it's going to be almost 60.  And then they stomp off to the bus in their coats, hats and gloves.  I can't help it I tell them that it's 30 degrees when you catch the bus and 60 degrees when you get off {laugh}. 

And as they stomp off  to the bus I yell I love you, even though I'm the worst mother in the world for making you wear the get up, lol!!

So as you can see the little daffodils and tulips are starting to make their appearance.  They don't even seem to mind my little snowman sign hanging right over top of them {smile}.

winter blues....

Usually by mid February I have the winter blues.  This year though with the mild weather we've had I find myself begging for freezing days and snowy skies.  I feel like time is running out and we haven't really had winter yet. 

Although winter doesn't seem to have the prettiest scenery with no snow, I find the skies are amazing.

All of these were taken out my back door.  It's amazing to me how different the sky is everyday.  Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of everyday I forget to stop and look around.  So there really is no need for winter blues, but I will admit I've been pouting a little about the lack of snow we've gotten. 

Happy Monday!!

under attack...

I had the dog outside and the sky was taken over by birds.  So I did what any normal girl would do... ran in the house and got the camera.  That's normal, right?

All of the birds flying in such a large group made a very eery noise.  And it's always pretty quiet where I live, but even more so because a little snow is suppose to be coming today.  Anyway, back to these birds, there must have been thousands of them.  No exaggeration I tell you.  And remember my post back a couple days where I wanted to start to learn the birds around where I live.  Well you couldn't see anything with them flying by.  I wonder how fast they were going and how many there actually were?  I know, I need to find something for me free time.  I must say, it was pretty cool to watch.

Thankfully they didn't fly over me {if you know what I'm talking about!}.

Happy Wednesday!!

foggy weather...

We have had the weirdest weather this winter.  I think it all started when we had snow before Halloween up until the 60 degree days in January.  I'm the kinda girl who likes to see all four seasons.  And this winter is just not cutting it for me.  Barely any days below 32 degrees and we've been jipped in the snow department so far too.  Most people think I'm talking crazy talk when I talk about the mild weather we've been having and tell me to bite my tongue.

This weather also seems to be producing a lot of fog.  And while I really don't like driving in it, I do enjoy watching the horses in the backyard in the morning.  Fog is funny.  Most times it obscures your view of things,  but did you ever notice sometimes it highlights the things right in front of you that most often we look right past?

Happy Monday!!
