Snow, birds & Sunset

I feel like I am taking one step forward & about ten back every day!  The house is a total "war zone" & I am discovering this is way worse than moving!  At least if you are moving things get put in boxes & labeled so you stand maybe a half a chance of knowing where things are!  We managed to empty our other two rooms.....most of which went into the office which happens to be the smallest of the three.  There are very "narrow passages" between the furniture but lots of luck figuring out where you might find clean socks or undies!  What didn't fit went downstairs in Popster's man cave.  His biggest complaint......he can't find his way to the bar to make a cocktail!  Poor baby!

It was a rat race all weekend getting the rooms empty & doing all the painting between trips to either L*wes Or H*me Dep*t to buy paint, trim, baseboard etc.  We have a standard joke every time we walk in the door "here goes another $100"  Seriously it is between $104 & $112 every time & we have been making daily trips.  Every other trip involves trying to bring home 12 foot long pieces which have to stick out of my window & usually there is a gale force wind or it's snowing ! 

Fun times!
These pics are from the big storm last week that dumped 13+inches of snow on us

This is Popster snowblowing paths in the backyard for Molly!

Just one of a few things he does for her
I had to shovel my way to the bird feeders
They are going through a lot of seeds this year

The tail end of a beautiful winter sunset

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
