Snow and Sunshine

We received our first snow last night.  A bit of rain first followed by a few inches of the white stuff.  I always forget how much I miss the beauty of snow.  Of course, then I realized I had to clean my car off which took about 10 minutes.  My ice scraper was M.I.A. so the broom and dust pan came to the rescue.  I must say they work very well.  We wont be buying a house up north without a garage, that's for sure. 

The sun is shining bright and the snow is already gone, with a high of 50 today.  That is fine though since life comes to a stand still here in the south when it snows.

Daffodils are blooming all over the place.  I must say it is a bit disappointing to see them all so early.  It will be less pretty later, when everything else starts blooming, without the cheery yellow of the daff's.

I'm on week seven now of my workout transformation.  I am building some serious muscles!  I love it.  The amount of weight I can work with has increased quite a bit and I feel so energetic.  It's a good way to feel, I tell ya!  It will make gardening this summer feel much less physically demanding.

We are still job hunting up north for Andrew but no luck yet.  I'm doing lots of reading up on farming and associated topics.  Gotta keep learning so that I look like I know what I'm doing at least.  I'll be placing a large amazon order soon.  There are a lot of books that I must have.  No fiction, just pure reference since I have much to learn, grasshopper.
