What A Difference A Day Makes!!

March 21, 2016

Good morning.  My goodness what a difference a day makes!!  Yesterday we had lots of sunshine, and today everything is covered with snow.  Around 10:30 last evening the snow started coming down, and it's still coming down.  One weather forecaster says that it will stop by noon.  We'll see. 

We're supposed to end up with somewhere between four and eight inches of snow before it's over.  At the moment, we have at least four inches.  I was going to go outside to take photos of my flowers, but the snow is too deep for my flip flops.  Instead, I took a few photos through the kitchen window.

These first two photos were taken yesterday afternoon.  As you can see, this first bud is becoming bright yellow.

These next two photos were taken a little while ago through the kitchen window.   The first photo is that tallest plant with the bright yellow bud.  The second shot is of some tulips. 

Thank goodness we haven't cleared away all the leaves and debris yet.  It will help to keep a lot of the smaller plants from freezing.  (At least I hope so)  There are lots of lilies and iris plants that have come up, and I'm hoping that they will be alright after the snow is gone.  A lot of these plants are already four to six inches tall.

It's 30F degrees right now.  We should be getting up to about 40F degrees this afternoon.  A lot of this snow should start melting then.  Tomorrow will be much warmer, and Wednesday is supposed to hit 61F degrees.  Now that's what I like to see.  Spring sunshine and warmth.

Yesterday I disturbed a few of our dust bunnies before settling down to crochet for a while.  I have about twenty one more rows to go to finish the medium rose afghan.  This is the one I was working on before I went on vacation. 

Mr. Pogo only ate half of his supper last night, and decided to wake me up around 3:15 a.m. this morning because he was hungry.  Unfortunately for him, I pretended not to hear him barking at me.  After a while, he jumped up onto his chair and went to sleep.  I know, bad mommy!  Gosh, today I feel so wicked guilty!!

Today I have no special plans on what to do.  There's plenty to keep me busy.  Before the news that we were expecting all this snow, Pogo and I had planned on going out to do errands today.  Of course, those plans have been changed.  Wednesday is supposed to be really nice so maybe we'll go out then. 

Now I think I'll do a big of blog reading while I finish my coffee.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I sure hope that the plants and flowers makes it. I cannot believe that we have our heat on here after weeks of warm sunny weather. My sister said that this is our Easter Snap. Well what ever it is, I am as bundled up as I can get and still be comfortable. Beautiful pictures by the way.

Oh don't feel like a bad mama. Sometimes you have to do things like that so after a few times he may get the message to eat his dinner. I have had to do it to Cisco a lot lately because he wants to play and I just have to roll over and ignore him and finally he will lay down, but I know what you feel like... Guilt can be such a heavy hearted thing.

I am very tired today. I just had my lunch so I am going to take my mid day medicine and go lay down for a little while..... Much love, Beth and Cisco.

It's always amazing to watch the daffodils breaking through the snow.
