The Calm After The Storm

I guess it is getting harder to predict the storms up here in Maine. The prediction of some news stations was up to 2 feet and we ended up with one. Still that is a lot of snow!! I was not able to get photos of the huge embankments in our yard made by our plow man today but will try in the morning light. It is an awesome sight. It always reminds me that there will be lots of melting in the spring and water everywhere in the yard. Would you believe our plow man was here again as we were getting home this afternoon….that was his fourth trip here. He came to clean up and smooth out the edges. What a guy! He is friendly and courteous and does a fine job. You can’t ask for anything more can you? It is getting harder to see traffic on our road when you leave the driveway because of the size of these enormous snow banks! No more playing king of the hill for Obie! The hills are just to big to climb!

I see signs of my good friend and mother in law Alice’s new blog. This is so exciting!! From what I can see, she has chosen a beautiful background and picture and a catchy name too. I can’t wait to be one of the first to leave a comment! My cousin says she tried to sign up to create one and couldn’t for one reason or the other. It can be a bit complicated without the help of someone who knows computers. So, when we go to the island to see her soon, we will try and help her with that. She and her friend who lives there with her are two wonderfully talented people. My cousin is the artist in many ways. She writes really good poetry and music and she paints scenes, inside mussel shells. and she does murals and creates character figures from polymer clay, to name just a few. Her friend has a multitude of talents as well. I don’t think I have ever met a better interior decorator! They also dabble in homemade crafts and they are extremely adept at computers and can figure just about anything out if given enough time. That is more than I can say for myself and I have a husband that does that! So….maybe in the future I will share some of their wears if they will allow me.

I guess that is it for today. Hey I thought I would drop in a picture of Obie when he was a pup. The photo was taken at my cousins house. She had the mother and father of Obie. Obie is the only black and white and tan Jack Russell in the picture. The dog to the left with the dot on his head is Obie’s brother Ziggy. My brother has him in Nashville, Tennessee.  So….brother and sister have brother and brother dogs! Ok….that’s it for today from Blueberry Plains….Cheerio for now.:)

It´s dangerous to se pictures with puppies, one want one then :-) But I think three dogs are enough at the moment :-) But It´s actully easier to hve four dogs than three, they tend to walk in pairs then.

This morning they said that it shouldn´t rain or snow today. The first thing that happened when I got home was that it started to rain, then the snow came :-)
I´m really looking forward to AliceMarys blogg!
Christer.
