After Easter

Well, Easter is come and gone for another year. It won't be this early again for over 200 years. My trees have lost all their blooms and are all green now. My flowers are looking great. Even my Hosta's are up and green. I planted strawberries in the pots where I had one plant already. Maybe I'll get more than one here and there. It would be nice to grow something edible other than spring onions that seem to grow on there own here. I have chives growing all through my grass. It will really stink when I mow it this year. I need to mow soon. Some already have.

I am working on a prayer shawl and an afghan square a month LAL(loom a long) right now. I hope to have the shawl done real soon for a friend who is sick and possibly has cancer on her ovaries. She finds out much more tomorrow at Baylor Hospital in Dallas.

I'm also reading along with Oprah's book club on "A NEW EARTH" by Eckhart Tolle. Tonight though the broadcast locked up my computer at 9:07. I missed the last 20 minutes. I tried to log back in and it made my computer act really strange so I'll just wait until tomorrow and watch the last part then. The first night did this also, but the last two weeks worked fine. I don't know what happened today. Maybe to much internet traffic again. We are on chapter 4 already.

Well, that is all I have for now, I'll try to keep this blog as current as I can, I forget about it sometimes.

snowstorm march 6,2008 1:30

video
This video has no sound since it is taken off of my digital camera. I don't own a video camera. Another thing to ask for in the future :-)

second snow storm-March 6,2008








Wow, all that first snow melted and yesterday was beautiful and 60 degrees. The Bradford Pear trees were buzzing with bees. At least I did my part to save the honey bees. They were pollinating the trees like mad. But, at noon today a snow storm, whiteout hit us again. It came early surprising everyone. We got about 7 inches in 3 hours and I have never seen such large snowflakes in my life. And I lived in the North for a long time. I finally went out and shoveled so my husband could get in the drive. All the neighbors got stuck. Then the neighbor kids and some young neighbor guys and I went out making snowmen and having snowball fights. It was fun. I let the inner child out. Now I'm ready to get cozy, drink hot chocolate and knit. Yeah!! A reason to just mush. Here are some more snow pictures. I'm sure all of you get so much you never want to see snow again, but here we NEVER get any. This is a once in a while event.

SNOW 2008





WOW, what a snow!!! It started to snow about 6:30 and it hasen't stopped yet. It was only supposed to snow maybe and inch and then melt. We already have 4 inches or more. It is sitting right over us. Down just a bit south it only did snow 1-2 inches and east and west didn't get much. We actually had white out conditions for a short time. It is beautiful outside---If it was CHRISTMAS!!!! But this is March---It was 71 degrees for the last 3 days, we even BBQ'd a steak last night on that grill!!. They say a few more hours of this stuff. We may be the only place with this much, they said on the news one or two spots will see up to 10 inches. Us and Durant Oklahoma. We may be the only ones snowed in by morning. Thats OK, I wasn't going out anyway. I voted early.There are already cars off the roads and in the ditches here. They always do that. We only get snow every year or two and then only once or twice. No one here knows how to drive or slow down on this. It was great snowman snow. Real wet and stuck together great. I'm past 50 but had to be the one making the snowman. I stayed out over an hour and a half and my SWS socks never even got wet. They kept my feet so warm. I'm still wearing them and drinking hot chocolate. Yummy.Here are some pictures:
