I have such good neighbors. After the recent six inch snowfall, the snow on the sidewalks and driveway was whisked away without my even seeing who did it. (I now know who the mysterious snow-blower was.) What a delight it was when I went outside and saw that my giant (only seems giant when you have to shovel it) driveway was already done. All I had to do was the front patio. Thank you! I know how badly we needed the moisture. I also know how much the kids love to go sledding or throw snow balls, and now they can, for a day or so. It is melting fast and already settled to half it’s height.

I ordered my new kayak. I am so excited. I can’t wait to bring it home and hang it on the wall of the garage. That won’t be as great as putting it in the water the first time, but still, in the middle of winter, at least I will be able to go out there and look at it! I have a trip to Flathead Lake in Montana planned for this summer. Before that trip, I hope to use it several times closer to home. I have to learn how to put my car-top carrier on, but other than that, I think I’m set.

The days are getting longer! Whoopie! I can tell because now I’m not closing the shades until after the evening news is over. That means spring is around the corner. I get to tell myself that anyway. Come to think of it, I better get up to the mountains and do some snow shoeing. There wasn’t enough snow last time I went, but I’m guessing there is now!

  1. What is your new kayak? I am waiting too for Spring, but lucky for us we are not in any snow belt.
