Currier and Ives

Eight inches of heavy snow on the ground.  It began snowing yesterday evening, and came down thick through the night.  Hubby went outside this morning to shovel the walk and alleyway.  Half an hour, it took him.  Half an hour!  Compared to four hours of shoveling to clear our driveway at our old house.  He even helped the neighbor lady shovel out her place.

The boys went outside for a few hours to play with the neighbor kids.  Graham came inside at one point asking for a carrot and buttons.  The carrot was an easy find, but the buttons could have been anywhere amongst the thousands of boxes still stacked around our house.  He settled for a scarf and a hat, and used rocks in leiu of buttons.

First snowman in our first snowfall in our first winter in our new house.


  1. What an amazing change for you. Nothing like a new adventure!

  2. Change can be very good! Hey Jo, does your blogspot stuff let you add a thingamajig that lets followers follow or receive email notifications of updates? I would like to know when you put up a new post... got busy past two weeks, didn't realize you had added some. Just a thought. :)

  3. Thanks Leigh, it certainly has been an adventure!

    Thistledog -- Hmmm... I don't know. I'm not all that techno-talented. I'll see if the hubby knows how to do it, he's much more computer savvy than I am! Thanks!
