Here's snow, there's snow, everywhere is snow, snow...

We are home again safely and I am wading through the usual "catch-up" after a trip while Brian plays in the snow outside. It was raining on the snow when we got home last night, but the snow started in again while I was doing morning chores (above). Brian and I made Costco run for dog food and toilet paper and other things one doesn't want to run out of since the roads were pretty good. Because Brian got to try his cousin's snowboard in Nebraska (the "sledding party" below consisted of Brian, two of his three cousins, his dad, aunt and grandma), he decided to spend some of his birthday money and buy one for himself; we found a very inexpensive on at K-Mart.
I glanced at my Blogger dashboard and there must a hundred new posts on the blogs I follow! I want to read every one but don't know how I'll ever catch up. Lots of photos of snow, so I see Boulderneigh and Nebraska are not alone in their coverings of white.

The animals are fine here, although Braveheart bashed his way out of his pen twice to get in with the ewes, causing extra work for our friend who did chores. I'm hoping Franjean bred everyone and Braveheart didn't cause enough stress to make anyone abort; I have no desire for May lambs. Time will tell.

Must run; more laundry and unpacking await at . . .

Glad you had a safe and fun trip! You should try sledding down sand dunes like I did growing up. It's much warmer and a lot less wet. ;-)

I am glad you had a safe trip and that Brian has snow to play in at home.

We have been plaqued with freezing rain this week. Although I wish for the weather to change, I would not want 3 feet of snow either.

We are covered in snow here as well. In fact, got about an inch of ice last night as well. Thank goodness my husband and I were both off work today! Stay warm. :)
