Thoughtful Thursday

"I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it."
Steven Wright

Like most houses in the civilized world, it's a busy time in the vonB homestead.

As it has snowed a whopping 4 inches in the last week, our coastal Canadian city is paralyzed. Ya, ya, ya - I know. We're Canadians. We're supposed to be used to this. Igloos, ice floes, dog sleds, blah, blah, blah.

Y'all are hilarious.

In this neck of the Great White North we are not used to the bitter, bitter cold(insert sarcastic eyerolling here), nor the snow; something radical seems to happen to everyone's good judgment once the thermometer dips below 32 degrees Farenheit. Morons who believe themselves immortal in their SUV's careen through the icy streets, leaving dents and rendered bumpers in their wake.

This is the occasion when I take my grown-up snow day/week/month.

Of late, my time has been filled with baking, casting adoring gazes at my amazing sons, and revelling in the fact that all my chickies are nestled together under one roof.

I have also taken to watching the psychotic birds who are swarming the bird feeders and suet blocks.

These mini butterballs are a messy lot, and they manage to slop out as much seed onto the ground as there is in the feeder itself.

I will keep you all apprised as to what sprouts up in the spring...

Stay warm, and be kind to each other.

The Baroness

Enjoy! I love being in my cozy nest, too!

UGH. Happens here too. One flake of snow and the entire Metro area loses it's collective mind. But, at least they can blame it on geography.

Four inches of snow? Why that's positively San Franciscian.

Countess MPM: With Duke #1 finally home (7 hours late)from University, it is a lovely, lovely time.

Countess BA: Makes me almost want to move somewhere where they know what to do with this stuff.

Count Cormac: Hardy, har and har. Ours is actually COVERING the ground.

isn't it wonderful to spend time together with your family?

I hate this snow.
I didn't want a snowy birthday or a snowy christmas.
It just meant it took so much longer to go see Trevor and to do anything but stay in the house.

AND it probably means no one will make it out for my birthday party on the 21st. I hate life.

Haahah I'm bitter.
