Winter Blues…in April 

Yay, it’s Spring! Well, it is in most of the world. I’m now into my 5th month of winter. Snow started in November and continued until, well it snowed yesterday.

There is over 4 feet of snow in my back yard, I still have to wear winter boots and I actually slipped under my car the other day. I’m so done. I’m beyond done. I’m over done.

I do get SAD, seasonal affective disorder, so I’m having a bit of a rough go right now. When I look at social media and see all the lovely spring weather pics from all over, I get excited! I start to think of how I’m going to arrange my patio furniture and what cute outfits to wear, then I look out.

That’s where my BBQ goes.

I’ve been feeling super down about all this snow. I’m not an outdoorsy person who skis or snowshoes so this extra winter just sucks!

So many people are going on their Easter holidays next week, or are gone now. All those pics of sunshine and beaches, pools and cocktails, sigh…I wish I was going too. I really have no right to complain as we spent three weeks in Florida in January, but that doesn’t change or fix how I feel right now.

Spring is coming though, just not as fast as I’d like right now. It is sunny today, so that’s a start.  I guess that’s what I have to deal with to live in a safe, clean, beautiful place.

And I’m off!

Countdown to Patio Furniture Day 54…we can see the road!

One month ago I lived in an igloo.  I looked out my front door and couldn’t see much besides snow. 

Today, I can se the road!! 


The snow has been melting fast and furious. 

 Side door. It kind of looks like a sheeps head, doesn’t it?

  Patio door. Look, actual patio!

We have had a few days of rain now, and it’s been really speeding things up. I do miss the sun though. I guess ya can’t have it all. 

And I’m off! 

Countdown to Patio Furniture Day 53…we played outside, sort of. 

It was a blah day. Nothing really happened. It’s didn’t rain, but the sun didn’t really come out either. The temperature was pretty good, so I got Mr.Bubs ready and we attempted to play outside. Between the snow banks.  


The one mitt wonder. He only wanted to wear one for some reason. 

 Side door. Doing great!

  Patio door. Getting there. 

Bubs loved being able to go out and play, but got super frustrated because he can’t get the water table out yet. Poor kid is going to have to wait a while for that one I think. 

And I’m off! 

Countdown to Patio Furniture Day 52…so that’s where that went…

I found the garbage can. I thought it blew away in the fall but it was under the glacier! 


Side door. There is the missing garbage can!

Patio door, looking down. It’s really going. 


Patio door. This isn’t the best view to see how much is melted.


This is! The view form the bathroom window. 

S thinks it will be gone in a week at this rate. I have my doubts, but I do think it will be gone by June. 

And I’m off! 

Countdown to Patio Furniture Day 50…what a difference some rain makes!

It didn’t rain much, but it sure but a dent in the mighty glacier! I can see the path stones!  

View from the bathroom window. Mr.Bubs even got his truck out. 

  Side door. I can see a big difference. 

  Patio door. All the snow is gone off the roof of the playhouse!

I think we are supposed to get more rain overnight. I hope to see more ground in the morning. 

And I’m off!
