Friggin' Spring...

Snow! Yes folks, that's right... friggin' spring snow. Here's what we woke up to this morning (after loosing power for 5 or 6 hours over night... it came back on around 5:30 this morning). This is the view out back (for which we still need to start the spring clean up of the broken and downed branches from the last hell ice storm...

I didn't manage to snap a picture, but there were about a dozen birds hanging out in the driveway. I think it was because their bird feeders looked like this...

Yes folks, this is friggin' spring in New England! Matt didn't get around to cleaning the dog's area before leaving for work this morning and I think they actually enjoyed it. Lola was the spaz woman, zipping around full speed...

And here's the smile while zipping shot...

Houseguest Dustee was not a fan of the cold, wet snow last night, but I think he was warming up to the idea this morning ... somewhat anyway.

Zeus just said "What the heck is this mess?? Where's my darn sun spot to lounge in??" (doesn't he look sad? Don't let the face fool you though... he was zipping around in the white stuff too!)

Meanwhile, king Tut said screw it all "Let me know when the sun's out" and opted for the couch...

Although I didn't make it out last night to knitting, I did manage to cast on Cabled Footsie #2 and get some rows worked!

I also wanted to post a pic of my "shaped scarf" in progress. I'm using 100% native alpaca purchased at A Knitter's Garden and a pattern that Joanne had knitted up for a nice wrap style scarf.

I still have quite a ways to go on it, but am loving how this alpaca is knitting up! Its great on your hands and I love the natural, beautiful grey color!

The only other interesting aspect since yesterday.... if you recall I mentioned how Dustee is unearthing all of our dogs' old toys that they haven't touched in years? I've got the proof!

See the blue crate in the background? That's where Dustee hangs out in while we're at work (its in the living room right next to the tv so he can see & hear what's going on - Lola & Zeus have free reign of the house, Tut is in his extra, extra large crate in the bedroom)... notice the abundance of toys gathered in front of and around the crate??? Its almost like Little Man is watching over his shoulder to see who's sneaking up on the toy pile too... And just in case you're shaking your head, yes that is a headless duck to Dustee's right and an alligator's foot under Dustee's front paw... Queen Lola says "Don't ask, dont' tell..."

WOw. That is a lot of snow! As yucky as is to think of snow now it sure is beautiful.
Great pictures!

Okay, you win for the worst weekend! I promise I won't grumble anymore about below zero wind chills and dead flowers - at least we're not shovelling out from the white stuff. And I'm with Tut, stay inside and snuggle in. Keep working on that gorgeous alpaca wrap. And hope the weather warms up so you don't get to wear it until next fall. As for Purling Pups - if I recall, it took about 2 weeks or so to hear from her.
