Not surprisingly, the subject for the Daily Photo Shoot for Sunday, 17 February 2013 is:
Blizzard Reprise, and a Gotcha Moment
Just as the front garden was looking like this the other day:
here we are again in the midst of what looks for all the world like another Snow Blizzard!
I realize there are other areas of the country who have this kind of snow all winter long (Hi Nina and Sandy!), and even WE here in the Northeast used to be among those Nanooks of the North, but we’ve become spoiled these last few years with warm-ish winters and a decidedly welcome lack of snow, at least for those of us who have to actual move the heavy white stuff.
It’s all coming back again! At least Paul gets to stay home and work here. Something for which I am grateful. Home Sweet Home… that’s my motto. I’d rather have us all here together than not.
OK. So that’t the snowy picture of our world today.
Now, there was an interesting comment in yesterday’s blog entry that I wanted to address here. It was Sue who said:
“How about a couple of shots of the “village” under the beds?
My under-bed hosts all sorts of shoes, as well as the usual giant dust bunnies.”
Well, here you go, Sue! A photo I just took under the bed, and also under the table over in the corner where, much to my surprise, there was also nothing but air!
Now I have to say, this is a new situation here. Like probably everyone else (except for Paul’s Mom who thinks it’s very bad luck to have ANYthing stored under the bed) we always had things under there, namely a twin sized mattress that we used to use on our pull-out sofabed in the case of guests coming to stay overnight. But we got rid of that mattress. The metal pan under the bed is just where Kippie sleeps. It looks awful, I know, but he likes it. He actually sleeps part of the night on the bed but he likes a hard cool surface, being wrapped, as he is, in all that insulating fur! He gets hot easily and he likes the coolness of the metal pan (which came out of a large sized dog crate/carrier that we use for puppies.
So there you go. The deep dark secrets under the bed! Nothing but air and Kip’s bed. I’ll bet you would never have predicted that, Sue!

I’m having myself a Kasey Chambers Fest this morning. Paul was in the basement working on lobster gear and he had Leonard Cohen droning on and on down there, which wafts up into the house quite easily… so I put in my “Rattlin’ Bones” album as well as her “Wreck & Ruin” album which, by the way, I have fallen totally in love with lately also. It has some really great songs on it that I listened to for most of the night last night with my headphones in bed. No sleep but lots and lots of Kasey & Shane… gotta love those two!
