The Light At The End Of The Shovel


So it did this yesterday.

That used to be my backyard, and no, those are not bushes on the left.

Somewhere under there are branches, small-ish though they may be, that fell waaaaaay back during that ice storm.

Because it has pretty much done that once a week since HALLOWEEN.

But there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

This week, these appeared at the grocery store.
In New England, these are a clear sign that Spring is coming.

Ok, mud season is first, then Spring.

The next sign will be the daffodils appearing towards the end of February slash beginning of March.

I'm so giddy, I may start digging for my flip-flops.

Until then, I will busy myself with your fab comments.

It's time for some more

Comment Love


The new comment system is taking some getting used to, and it retro-fitted all my posts, so today's comments come mostly from one post, but it's a doozy.

On: Sometimes The Google Lies

Nikki: Oh no. I'm sorry, but I totally laughed out loud! Hey, I've been there MANY times. It's so frustrating. I enjoyed your journey anyway!

Susie: That does look like a nightmare craft!

Jori-o: Oh dear...naughty Google!

Lauren: HA! I love it :)I've totally had those experiences. New crafts are nothing if not an adventure :)

Cristina: I also thought I was making a big crafty thing, by making a apron to Nicole, after all, mommy made this, right? Now the time that took me to find fabric, the petrol, the time of cutting, measure, sewing...well at the end I think I spent more money then if I actually ordered from school.

T. Allen-Mercado: Oh no! I would've been NUTS-you waited 3 days?! Sue the Google!

I'm glad everyone got a kick out of this. I posted it for that very reason. When I told Hubby I had started the project, he asked how it was going.

My answer:

Well, let's put it this way: it will make a really good post.


And lastly, best comment of the month:

On: A Snowy Birthday

Jori-o: Um, will you adopt me? My birthday is in November... =)

Jori-o-darling-o, if you'll come shovel my driveway, I will adopt you, your whole family, and Buck to boot!


  1. The light at the end of the tunnel for me is when the days start getting noticeably longer - it's not dark out when I get out of work anymore, hooray! But tulips are good too, I'll have to look for some when I go grocery shopping this weekend.

  3. Oh...I just sighed when I saw the tulips. So pretty. But I'm pretty sure we have a long way to go until Spring.

  5. Yeah... I'm done with winter. And the dafodils my mom bought me a couple weeks ago are pretty much done. How many more weeks of winter again?

    And thank you so much for coming to visit my blog. Today has been so much fun and so lovely to see the response and fun comments. I really appreciate it. I hope you enjoyed my blog and come back to visit soon!
