Snow, Day Two
Those of you who live in colder parts of the country (or the world) will probably be chuckling under your breath at our “snow.” There is maybe an inch or two of snow on the ground. It’s supposed to snow a little more tonight, but I fully expect it all to melt away by tomorrow or the next day. Knowing that, it’s much easier to appreciate how beautiful it is in the meantime.
Look at the farmhouse in the snow! Sometimes I still can’t believe that it’s done and we’re here. It’s so beautiful (although, to be honest, I’m not a fan of the green color on the house and I am trying my hardest to convince Jasper that we need to repaint it RED this summer)!
I was just pruning these raspberries and marionberries! There were little green buds on them! I hope they’ll still be there when this melts because I was so looking forward to eating fresh berries this summer.
The girls, of course, are in heaven. Tromping around, sledding, building snowmen. Enjoying their days off from school (yes, they cancelled school for this!).
Even Jasper’s been getting in on the action. And thank goodness for that, because he’s much better at playing in the snow than I am.
I would rather be right here during this brief, snowy interlude. In fact, I think that’s what I’ll do.
Stay safe out there, fellow Pacific Northwesterners. And to the rest of you: please don’t laugh at us too hard!
