Awww Monday! February 27, 2023

We have had an amazing snow fest
here in the Pacific Northwest!

The Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington area hasn’t seen this much snow all at once in 80 years. “This is a big deal,” said Tonja Fransen, a meteorologist at the local National Weather Service office. Portland International Airport recorded 10.8 inches Wednesday, beating out the 9.3 inches that fell on a January day in 1956. Since snowfall record-keeping at the airport began in 1939, the greatest snow accumulation over a day was 14.4 inches in 1943.

Needless to say I have been feeding the birds and squirrels plus the occasional rabbit with sunflower seeds and shelled peanuts! We can watch them from our dining room windows - as does Lucy our cat! It's a live nature show for all of us!

Feline Friday! February 24, 2023

 Some cats do not mind the snow!
We got a lot of snow today-
so while we are out shoveling 
our friends cat is exploring! 
And our Lucy is rolling around in the catnip
warm and cozy in the house!

Thanks Mimi for Feline Friday!
Happy weekend everyone!

Thankful Thursday February 23, 2023

Lucy cannot believe it is snowing!

Oodles of birds at our feeders!
Red and Yellow Shafted woodpeckers, 
Downy woodpeckers, Varied Thrushes 
and all sorts of Chickadees. The Starlings are
coming in now and we would just as soon
they fly back to England! They take over.
Anyhow- all of us are enjoying the snow
and the birds too! We need the snow on our
mountains and melted snow in our rivers
and creeks! We are thankful for all that we can get!
Have a lovely day and many thanks to Brian for               Thankful Thursday!!

Happy Tuesday February 21, 2023

Yet another baby born and my quilt was
ready for him!  I get such a 
kick out of making a quilt for each 
child. I make then small enough so each
child can tote it around once they are walking
or even just crawling!  
Just today I finished another
quilt for a little boy who isn't yet here to 
give us smiles and laughter! 
I will share it once he is here! 
Hugs to everyone!
