That's it. I have lost my mind.
Today, after a night of moderate snow fall, we had about four inches of very fluffy snow. The roads were NOT slick, since they had already been treated and were continually treated throughout the night. But Lorelei got the day off, because the school district had a 90 minute delay(since she only goes half a day, a delay means no school for her).
A day alone? Quiet Mommy-time? Sitting in a warm car taking awesome pictures of great birds?
Hell to the no.
I'm sick of snow. I'm sick of soggy boots and wet carpet. I'm sick of scraping windshields. I'm sick of these kids not going to school. I'm sick of cloudy, crappy weather.
Lynne has a great idea...click HERE. I could use some Blogger-Therapy.
So let's cleanse with photos, taken with my newly-repaired (Well, ma'am, we can send it back to the service center) camera:
Wet dog noses...
"Hey, Mom. See my brain?"
Man, oh man. My kids are so cute. (and it helped that for once, she smiled at the camera instead of hiding)
Queen watched the bird feeders with me today. You can see the feeders in the reflection of her eyes. Cool.
"Blue Moooooon....you saw me standing aloooooooone....."
(One of many suncatchers/windchimes in the breakfast nook, just as the sun was going down)
Somethings to look forward to:
Friday I head out to Adams County for the Birding Symposium. I did this program last year, and it was fun. Got to see Bill and Julie for a few minutes, then they split (man, are those people busy!), KatDoc showed up, and of course, Amish food aplenty. Kathi, you comin' this year? How about you, Nina? I haven't met you yet...jump to it, girl.
I will spend Friday night in lovely, picturesque Seaman Ohio (Yeah, it's pronounce semen) and then spend Saturday doing my RAPTOR thing, then I get to go on a bird walk with everyone. Whoot! I need some birding, seriously. I haven't been out in so long. :(
Next weekend is the Owl Prowl at Spring Grove Cemetery. (Check out that link...you can see Elvis our past barred owl and Sylvester our GHOW)
I will just be holding birds for Jeff, one of our volunteers. It will be nice to let someone else do the talking. Looks like there is still time to register (it's free)...so if you are in the area, come and see us!
Okay. I feel a little better. And I noticed that this post is very linky. So you all have something to do tonight.
