Snowy Birthday 2013

This has been 
one of those winters...
a winter
that won't give up,
a winter that's competing
with the Energizer Bunny...
a winter that leaves for a couple days
and then returns to harass us
like a bad penny!

I had a bad feeling
that my birthday would be 
snowy this year...
this was totally uncalled-for!

As Sall and I were trying 
to shovel our way out
of the end of our driveway
to go to work this morning...

The ducks, geese and pheasants
were all flying around
looking for food 
and probably wondering
about heading back south!

I know I was wondering
why I even got out of bed this morning...

the cats were content
watching the snowy day from inside...

Last Saturday it was 68 degrees out
and I cleaned all the shovels and 
rubble off the front porch...
What happened???

 At least we still have electricity...

we got ourselves unstuck... 

Sall was able to get to town
to buy me a steak dinner...

the sun popped out 
as he fired up our grill tonight

and it looks like there's
 hope for this Birthday after all!

49 and Feelin' Fine
If ya ask me, I'm still 29!

Happy snowy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you even if it is snowy. I'm so sorry you have snow again. I feel for you. I'd be depressed I think if the rain we're getting was snow. As it is, I'm so glad it's rain since it's been so warm and extremely dry here, which is not normal for April. The weather never seems very normal anymore.
Celebrate and have a great birthday anyways!!!!
