Lots of Adventures…… (and more snow than I care to acknowledge)

My hanging planter after one (of many) snowstorms

I love snow…a little at a time…..

There’s nothing in nature that can make everything more peaceful and beautiful than a fresh blanket of pure white snow.  This winter, however, has made me use more profane adjectives when talking about snow than I ever imagined.


I live in the part of the country that has been inundated this winter with snowstorm after snowstorm.

Up to my knees (and we still got more)

We’re at the point now that well over a hundred buildings have fallen down in surrounding communities and the  snow is all dirty and disgusting to look at.  It’s starting to melt and the flood concerns are ramping up.  Animals are looking for food and places to sleep

A little minor flooding
Antelope that were blocking the road

Now……the forecast is…..more snow.  For the love of all things sunny and 75° make it stop! Please send us warm and happy thoughts.  We really need to start getting the garden goodies prepped. I’m glad I decided on a lot of container planting this year!  I don’t expect to see a full thaw until…….July? (That’s a joke,  I hope)

Coming soon….I take my life on a low carb/keto adventure (and I have perks for my friends! )
