Well the snow is back folks, as my bosom friend says “it only snows when you make plans”, and that certainly seems to be true! Friday I had plans to go visiting, and then we were hit with snow, yesterday I was lucky enough to get out & go grocery shopping with a friend, and made it home soon after it started snowing.
Don’t get me wrong, I love snow, I am jealous of the amount of snow everyone is getting. I’m just learning that the weather people say sunshine, and that doesn’t apply to my house, because we live on top of a mountain, so it’s hard to plan day to day activities.
This morning I had plans to go vote in the NH Primary (by the way, I endorse you all to use your minds and vote for who you want, & ignore the celebrity who says “vote this person”).
However the snow that was not in our forcast had other plans
The plow trucks don’t seem to visit our road as often or maintain it as well as the do the main roads, so even if I had been able to make it out of my driveway in my car, it wouldn’t have done so well on my very steep road. Luckily my husband was able to get a good amount of the driveway with the snow blower, and after hearing that I was considering tossing on the snow shoes & walking to town, he put the truck in four wheel drive and away we went.
Speaking of snow shoeing, we spent some time over the weekend snow shoeing 3/4 of the boarders of our land, first we started off with the kids in tubes
But after awhile, the trees started to get in the way
We found that we had a few springs on the property
We all had a lot of fun and the parents were certainly exhausted in the end. All my Saturday evening plans (reading, knitting, crocheting) went down the tubes & instead I spent two hours looking at seeds, because that is all the energy I could muster.
My sweater slowed down due to the quality of knitting needles I was working with. 18 sizes of circular knitting needles for $8 sounds like a great idea in theory, but it’s really not. It’s like going shopping for groceries when you are hungry, “why did I buy these?!”.
So, while I was out yesterday I stopped at one of my absolutely favorite yarn places, Nancy’s alterations and yarn shop in Conway, and purchased two pairs of circular needles and had to shield my eyes from the yarn because I want to buy it all but I need a new car…priorities 🙄😒
