I discovered a use for the 15-20 foot piles of snow surrounding me:
It makes a perfect screen for shadow puppets!
Of course, I only know how to make one shadow puppet, and it requires two hands, so I can't make the shadow puppet and take a picture of it at the same time.
So here's me, (and my shadow) waving hello:


And some news: I have been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. I now have in my posession both a cell phone and a digital camera, courtesy of my daughter. A few years ago, we gave Emily a tracphone for Christmas and when she graduated from college, we gave her a digital camera. Well, then a few months ago, she upgraded to a cell phone that also takes pictures. So she gave me the old tracphone and the digital camera is with me, on indefinite loan.

So I spent yesterday morning learning how to text on the phone. (If you want my new cell phone number, email me and I'll email it back to you.)
And I spent this morning, learning how to upload pictures onto the computer, so I can share them with you.

Okay, now I have to go and do responsible things like housework... and eating... and sleeping... and stuff like that.

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Thinking SPRING!

This was my sister, Sue's idea. And I think it's a good one.

I can't stop taking pictures of the massive amounts of snow on the ground. It's like being a tourist in hell, if you know what I mean.

Anyway, here are some pretty lilacs from last year, to help us all to "think SPRING!"
I'm not sure, but I think one or more of these may be upside down?

Just more snow:

The shovel doesn't have a chance!

I want to invite everyone to pop over to The Gatewoods blog (link at left) that I share with my sisters. I don't know what started it, but we have put up some neat pictures of rivers, the Pacific Ocean and a creek. Kinda fun.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!
