MORNING PATROL RITUAL CONTINUES!!


I spent most of yesterday helping Ron 
build a path so we could get out of the back door.
(The smothered plant is one of our Japanese Maples, oy!)


 Not much chance we will get to the shed for awhile,
this snow stuff is deep / drifted and draining my energy.


 I don't expect the birds will be taking a bath too soon either.
We watch them from one of the living room windows,
but no way is anything taking over the birdbath except this snow!


I follow my tracks along the very, very narrow path
which goes out the back door 
over to the hemlock trees
and
then for some reason turns around 
returning me home.


Sometimes I believe I hear the neighbour's two dogs.
They are super small,
so I'm worried about them
because the snow would swallow them up
so easily.


So this morning after the sun came up
we so appreciate the plowman's efforts
who finally arrived at 9 p.m.
with a monster snow eater upper!
We can now leave the house and restock the fridge.


So I ran outside checked all the paths and the driveway.
Everything is A-OK,
so let's jump into the car and get my treats!

    1. Yes I do appreciate Ron's endeavours, but alas he is OCD and won't listen to his elders!

    2. Oh, Ron, I would love some warm Med breezes myself about now! Instead, we've had rain, damp, and gusting winds. Maybe tomorrow!

  5. As much as I luffs seeing you having funs in the snow I'm wishing you some warm spring like weathers Sophie, you must be fed up with winter by now.

  6. I can't believe how much snow you guys have! I do hope it melts S L O W L Y though, or you will be needing waterwings or a boat to reach that pee-spot - not to mention that your dads will need some pretty darn tall mud boots!

      As I sit here, the snow is starting again!

      Where did we go wrong!

    1. Franklin no doubt is HAPPY about his path that leads him home too.

      Wouldn't it be cool if we met up some day and followed each other home!

      Just pretending and daydreaming again, as the snow melts!!

    1. UPS will assist if you really want some. I saw a UPS truck in an accident on the w/e so maybe they aren't able to help this time!

      Hugs!
