In Like a Lion


March never disappoints.
We have over a foot of the white stuff.
And 4 more inches on the way.
We are having a snow day and then some.
I want to play in my garden.
But today, I will supervise the shoveling.
I will supervise all things food.
Ribs, cornbread, wine, corn chowder, wine, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
Wine.
And just sit around and wish.
For this.
And when I get to the Virginia Blogfest in July?
I am going to smack Marlene for wishing for all this snow.
I swear.

You make me laugh. Poor Marlene, I think she'll suffer the wrath of many of us. Perhaps a water balloon flogging will be in order.

We'll make Marlene go down the slip-n-slides while wearing a crab hat. You didn't hear about the slip-n-slides? A group of bloggers + wine + slip-n-slides = black mail pictures + great blog fodder.

We actually got some snow too, but I am thankful to see it. Thank you, Marlene!

I prayed for it to come HERE...not to all of ya'll and miss me.

I just like to share, that's all!!!

MPM, it is really beautiful! A great last hurrah for winter, right?

I think I'll assign myself the task of photographing the slip and slide event!

Sorry about your snow but I like your plan for dealing with it!

We're getting a lot of it, too and it's begun to blow like mad. I don't even think I could get out our 1/3 mile long driveway at this point. I can hardly see it. Is it bad to still have my pajamas on? And be contemplating imbibing? Perhaps I should be cleaning.

How boring.

MPM - Unless I'm having brain surgery this summer, I'll see you at the blogfest!!!

It will be warmer, I swear...D

I think we find the snow so fascinating here because it's so rare and also, it means a holiday! Everything closes when there is snow on the ground. :-) If one actually had to get to work and school in the snow? No way!

IF I am invited to this BlogFest I will join AG on the sidelines with my camera

I'm sorry you have to put up with this weather although it is so beautiful...we have 90 degrees scheduled for today...yuck...and yes those little roses are blooming right now...I took that pic on Saturday...stay warm my friend.

Joanie said...

Oh, my gosh...I see you got some snow...and I do mean SOME! We are having nice warm weather here this week. Go figure!

Where is blogfest?

I made the mistake of letting my spouse post a "signs of Spring" entry on our blog. He had a second one ready to post today. Serves him right that he has eight inches of snow to remove from the parking lots and drives. And I am not helping. (In a macho delusion he does a ten car and a four parking areas by hand. He refuses to hire a plow guy.)

Back to eating bon bons and blowing my nose.

I'm gonna side with Marlene...because I don't want the rath of Mathews to come down on my in July.

Snow days are great days to bake and cook. Ribs? YUMMMM

Art said...

That's a lot of snow. We only had a couple of inches in southern TN (and it will probably be our last until next winter. I'm OK with that :)

Debbie said...

Ohhhh I remember these lovely photos. No ducks? Sigh.

No tires? Sigh.

Hope you had a good snow day. Oh, you have a lot of those! LOL

Hilary said...

Lovely shots - though I'm so sick of winter now. Bring on those summer scenes.

Is that your pool? Very nice!
I want to be there!
And I do think there will be a line waiting to smack Marlene!
