The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Snow Day #3.

Well, the snow didn't melt yesterday and after last night's 20 degree temps - the secondary roads are a bit like ice skating rinks. Chad had to go to work a bit later than usual but they needed to at least go in and "check on things" (come on - they are a bunch of men!).
Chad has been very careful to keep our bird feeders full - we have one in the front yard and one in the back yard - in addition to a couple of suet blocks that we have hung in the trees. It seems like we might be the only folks in the neighborhood with bird feeders because as soon as he fills them, they are empty again. And as soon as he refills, we get flocked!
I think we do this as much for Wooby as we do for the birds. It is endless entertainment for her to sit below the windows where she thinks the birds can't see her and watch them and talk to them.
So this is a series of pictures of how the short-legged Gwendolen makes her way through the snow (which doesn't seem to bother her one bit - she actually really likes it - and her coat is made for wet weather like this. She stays pretty dry...)

There is a lot of hopping - a bit rabbit-like.

So, there is quite a bit of snow left on the ground and it is actually snowing again at the moment. I believe we are supposed to have a nice sunny day today but the temperatues won't get above freezing so no luck on any snow going away. I was supposed to drive to Knoxville tomorrow - don't really see that happening.
We've been pretty busy these past few days - but truly enjoying a few days off together just to hang out and do what we wanted. After our Monday sledding, we haven't played much in the snow. It is just WAY cold now...
We cleaned house a bit yesterday - vacuuming, laundry, dishes - I baked a bit last night. I am thinknig of making bread today too.. I do feel a bit of "cabin fever" - sort of trapped like I can't go anywhere even if I wanted to. We made it to my office yesterday to pick some stuff up so I can answer some questions for leaders - COOKIE SALE starts today!! - and to the grocery store for essentials like mac and cheese and popcorn.
And the snow is still falling...
