We finally got a good taste of winter this weekend. We got 6 inches of snow on Saturday. We have had a an inch or so of snow a few times earlier this winter but this was this first time we were able to make snow cream. Unfortunately it is melting now. We should be able to drive up to our house by this afternoon. I enjoy having to park at the bottom of the mountain and walking in. My wife doesn't feel the same as me.

Sadly we are forecast to have a week of above average temps. Hopefully next winter will be cold and snowy.

Now that the superbowl is over, all eyes are on baseball. High School baseball practice starts fully next week. Major League baseball spring training also starts next week with pitchers and catchers reporting. Our TV stays mostly on the MLB network channel. We are very much a baseball family.

Have a blessed day everyone.

Howdy everyone!

I painted almost every bit of that swing yesterday with just a few spots to go but I ran out of paint. Plan on buying some more today. Guess what? Now my swing is sitting out in the rain "drying"! Ha ha! I guess I should have checked the weather because I could have set it under the porch awning if I knew that. It will be okay. It should have been dried before it rained but now I have to wait for the water to completely dry before I can finish painting it.

Sorry I'm a slacker on here! It's going to be a very busy day today so I will try to catch up on here later.

Have the most Merriest Day Ever!!!

Aw, thank you! We're doing fine. I just haven't had much to say ... nothing interesting is happening, just business as usual. I have some interesting projects in the back of my mind, but I just don't have the energy and ambition to get started on them. It must be February!

glad you got to enjoy some of the beauty of snow and winter!
Here the temps are going up again too, all the way to 0c (32f). We have more snow now than we have had for several winters.

Glad you got your snow!!!

We are a baseball family, too. What major league teams do you follow?
We are Brewers & Cubs fans. Although, now that we're close to Minneapolis, I'm sure will try to catch a few Twins games.
