The down side:
-It has been snowing here for two days. There’s about eight inches of white stuff covering my garden.
-The snow came before I could harvest my leeks or most of my carrots. I tried pulling some carrots tonight but the frozen tops just snapped off in my hand. I am hoping this snow doesn’t stay so I can rescue my orange friends from a winter underground.
-The snow came before I could spread compost on most of my gardens or before I had a chance to collect horse manure for the same purpose.
-The snow came before I could rake our lawns.
-The snow came.
The up side:
-It’s a Friday night and I don’t have to be anywhere. A whole week-end stretches before me.
-Joe made moose stew before he came to bed last night so I don’t have to cook dinner.
-I sent Joe off to his first yoga class of the season and I stayed home to sit by the wood stove with a hot cup of tea.
-We have two full freezers and lots of firewood.
-In spite of the snow, life is good.
