This is what it looks like here right now:
Keep in mind that it was calm when I took the picture- we've had winds up to 50 mph and snow. Now, I'm not complaining- I didn't have to get out in this, I'm just saying spring can come anytime now. Not summer- I don't want anything over 70 but some sun and 50-60 would be lovely! I know I'm a very picky person when it comes to temperature. I really am glad I live in a state with seasons. I love that we have changes- I really do like all the seasons, summer just happens to be my least favorite.
Since it's -oh 1 degree outside- I'm not kidding- I have a visitor in my kitchen again. It hasn't been all smooth going today. He tried to sneak outside and since I wasn't sure if the fence was locked I didn't want him going. He ended up knocking over his 5 gallon pail of water all over my floor and it spread onto my carpeting in the living room. What a mess- thank goodness it was water!
He is quite a helper though. We had ham for dinner and Mark was bagging up the leftovers and look who's right there to assist in this process:
Just so you know- he was rewarded quite handsomely for all his efforts!
