Remember that picture (if not, see below) of my kinetic wind sculpture from late December? Here it is today - it's kind of shocking. Notice the difference in the depth of the snow on the base of the sculpture and the fence. It's a 6 foot fence so I'd guess we have 3 feet in the yard! (Note, you can click on any of these images to make them bigger.)

Annie was a little melancholy this afternoon. I think she gets frustrated by the lack of walkies (they hadn't plowed today so we couldn't go) and the loss of "her" backyard. She's a pretty girl though, isn't she?

Finally, another pretty girlie, Claire. She's the oldest of my critter crew and is coming up on 15 this spring.

Glorious Sun and More Snow Pix

We are having a GLORIOUSLY sunny day! It's the calm before the next storm. I don't care what it is - I'll take it! I just snowbooted up and went with the puppers on a walk. Here's what I saw -

The house - I live in a split level with a daylight basement. Uh huh.

The driveway - with which my snow blower and I are intimately familiar. See how lazy I've become? I no longer try to do the whole thing.

The street -

The almost disappeared mailbox. It will be gone tomorrow. The stuff in front of it is snow and ice. I've given up. Oh, that's Mt. Spokane in the distance. You can kind of see why I moved here. It *is* kind of pretty.

I'm making progress on my Carpenter's Star quilt - see...

There are four more borders and I'll make sure to post pix as I finish. Now to get some work done!
