In total we got close to 14 inches on Long Island. Now I don't mind snow in December, January and even February BUT I HATE March snowstorms. By now the weather should be warming and I should be able to see plants starting to sprout in the gardens. At this rate I won't see the gardens until June!
Rosie kept me entertained for most of the morning.
This window in my kitchen is her favorite perch to watch the birds.
I am glad I had filled the feeders before the snow. Rosie spent 4 hours chirping (a funny noise like a soft meow and a clicking sound) at the birds and occasionally pouncing at the window at those birds who sat on the deck rail close to the window.
If you look closely you can see a cardinal trying to find the seed on the tray under the snow. I notice that the feeder is crooked but it will have to wait until the snows melt before I go straighten it. :)
This is another feeder right outside my kitchen window and the feeder that attracts all the birds that tease poor Rosie. Look and you can see a sparrow feeding.
I spent lots of time last weekend stitching and have made tons of progress on all my pieces. No new starts but no progress photos either. My computer was not behaving and took forever to upload the photos in this post! So more stitchy pictures next time.
Except for this. A week or so ago I won a giveway on Edgar's blog. It arrived on Friday. Floss, floss and more floss. All on bobbins and some are marked with a brand I've never heard of. But that's fine. A lot of times when I stitching up a fob or other small I need a color to go with another over-dyed and these will come in handy for that kind of thing. After all one can never have too much floss. :)
Here is the box of floss with the cutest card.
Of course Miss Rose had to give her seal of approval. :)
Today is the third month since my Mom passed away. So if I don't seem my cheery self I apologize. I've been kind of blue for a few days now. Last month at this time it hit me too. I guess it will for awhile. :(
I'll spend the weekend stitching my blues away. I hope.
Until next time......
Love and stitches
