We Made It!



Through the storm that was!

Technically it was a blizzard, but it was nothing like the Blizzard of 1978 or even 'Snowmageddon'!  It did snow heavily for a while and the wind blew merrily, but we were snug and warm inside.  We spent most of the time watching The Jewel In The Crown.  Local PBS stations have been broadcasting in bits and pieces so we decided to indulge in the complete DVD.  Nothing quite warms like watching hot India in the last days of the Raj!


Primroses have come into all the markets.  Forget groundhogs; these are a true harbinger of Spring.  I always find them so pretty and hopeful!


I've finally gotten over a migraine that has been around since the snow started.  I think it's weather related.  I will always blame the weather for any problems whenever and wherever I can!

Sunny and windy today, not one for going outside.  Poor little Winter is showing signs of cabin fever.  She wants to go out, but after just a few minutes of play she is ready to come in.  I wish I could find some good snow booties for her.

Football tomorrow.  We don't really watch, but do dip in now and then since it's the Patriots.  When Paul was alive it was fun to watch with him, because he was willing to explain everything to me.  Now we will probably watch something like The Hollow Crown and also The Puppy Bowl!

Enjoy the weekend what ever you do.

As always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*

  1. Glad to hear you weathered the storm and your migraine has subsided.
    Danielle bought snow booties for her boxer, some years back. When she put them on him he froze in place and wouldn't walk! He wasn't crazy about a coat either but she did manage to get him used to it.
    Enjoy the game tomorrow. I won't be watching, but since I am a New Englander at heart, I hope the Pats win.

    1. Hi Michelle....I've heard other people say that about putting booties on their dogs. I guess we'll stick to working on wearing a jacket!
      I just dip into the game. Downton Abbey is more important!
      Once a New Englander; always a New Englander!

  3. More snow coming....... gosh, who needs a migraine? And I don't know your history-are you a widow, Paul your late husband?

  4. Hi Gary.....Who needs snow? I know I sure don't!
    Yes, Paul was my second husband. He died seventeen years ago. I usually concentrate on remembering loved ones birthdays, rather than day of death. A birthday is about a life of futures, death is an end! Awkwardly put, but you get the idea?

    1. Hi Corrine...Yet another reason why I don't live any further north! It looks like we will be getting a lot of rain; toes crossed that it doesn't turn back to snow!

    1. Hi Linda.....Between heavy snow and the wind, we did have white out conditions for a while.

  7. Dearest Suzi,
    So happy for you that you both, including your sweet pets, did stay safe and warm. I've put that movie on my Amazon wish list for ordering later when I've paid for my medical bills... Did read that it also includes Kashmir where one of the women went. That's parallel more or less with my travel stories from Pieter that I'm posting about as it too will end in Kashmir.
    Sending you hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Hi Mariette....It's snowing again, but I think it's not a big one. The temp is right around freezing and may go up.
      Jewel In The Crown is based on The Raj Quartet by Paul Scott. I really like reading about very hot places in winder weather.

  8. Primrose, daffodils, and forsythia are my harbingers of spring. So glad you made it and are feeling better.

    1. Hi Lori....No Groundhog shadow today, but from the looks of things I think there will still be a lot of winter ahead!

  9. Oh my goodness - and you have more snow coming. Hope that doesn't cause more headaches - literally or figuratively. Primroses are one of my favorite flowers. The redbuds are starting to bud here - spring isn't too far off. Stay warm.

    1. Hi Judy....Fortunately we just got the edges of the snow. The worst was that it turned f to freezing rain for a while. not a day for driving! It looks like we have a sunny but cold day ahead!

  10. Snow, ho, ho! It certainly looks nice when viewed through a window from a warm room. You and the wrong glasses that I was wearing at the time... gave me a laugh, without intending it.... I read "Forget groundhogs; these are a true harbinger of Spring." as "Forget groundhogs; these are a true Hamburgers of Spring!" Something to do with Hogs and Burgers.. Old age, I can't see so clearly darn it! :)

  11. Hi Peter....Right now I am thinking that snow is best viewed from a distance, or in a picture! I won't begin to tell you the misreadings I have made. The world would be a strangely interesting place if my readings were true!
    Hamburgers could be a harbinger of Spring if you grille outside!
