Yeah! The Roofs Are Done!

February 17, 2015

Good morning.  Shhhh, don't say anything out loud, but there is no snow falling from the sky here at the moment.  It feels kind of funny.  But nice.  But oh my, the South is getting walloped with freezing rain and ice.  That is not so nice! 

Well, the roofs are finally cleared of the snow.  Thank goodness.  It was wicked expensive, but such a load off my mind.  Roofs are collapsing everywhere from the weight of all the snow that is on them.  I don't want to be one of those statistics. 

I haven't been taking many more photos because somehow they all look the same from day to day.  The ones that I take through the window aren't so good because there is snow stuck to the screen on the window.   But here is one photo of our little sparrows.  These two are waiting for Joe to finish spreading some seed and bread beneath my car. 


I found a picture on daughter's web site of a really cute idea for a bird feeder.  This one uses cups and saucers.  If it weren't for our pesky squirrels, I'd make up a couple of these for our gardens.


Kyra sent me an email with a link to some really adorable whimsical art.  Check out this link.  It will make your eyes smile.  http://www.viralforest.com/someone-drawing-quirky-chalk-charcoal-characters-streets-ann-arbor-michigan/

Yesterday, I bundled Pogo up in his toasty winter jacket and took him out to play in the snow.  Oops!  Not a good idea.  He did not like it at all, and couldn't wait for me to pick him up and make his little feet warm again   Sorry Pogo.

Today I have to try to finish gathering up all my tax stuff because I'm going to be busy most of tomorrow with Pogo's appointments, and I see the accountant the next day.  After that, it will be time to seriously start putting things into our suitcase and printing out our airline tickets.  Cross your fingers that the weather holds out and we're able to board the plane and make it to Florida. 

Well, that's my news for this morning.  Till tomorrow, Y'all be warm and have a super day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I love the idea of the cup and saucer bird feeders. They are adorable.
Florida is going to be such a great escape for you. Your eyes will not know how to adapt from all the white that you have been seeing for a long while now.
Sorry to hear how expensive the roof clearing was but thankfully it is over for now and hopefully the snow will wind down and stop for good now. You all have had too much! I wish they could bundle it up and send to Texas and to California to help ease our draughts. They are terrible.

I am going to go and check out Kyra's link and then I am going to make my last pot of coffee for now. I am out. Jonathan will pick me up some in a couple of days. That should have been the first thing on the list I gave him.
Hugs and you have a great day. Oh and I sure am glad that little Pogo didn't get frost bite on his little paws... I am sure he did not like it, lol. Beth

I love that tea cup feeder. That chalk art is so cute and so creative. What fun.
I'm glad the roof is cleared. It had to be expensive. Too bad insurance doesn't cover it as a preventative.
Glad you are getting some coffee. I'm sure the groceries are low on many things right now. Take care.

Good your roof is cleared from the snow now. Might have been expensive, but having a new roof would be much worse!
Hope the snow will get away now. I agree that it has been there for too long.
Poor Pogo, it must have been a real shoc to him, out there in the snow LOL!
Great you're almost done with the taxes and that you can start thinking about packing your suitcase!
Love that idea of the birdfeeder.
Take care and be careful out on the roads!
Hugs
