Three Years Ago

 I have been very busy preparing gumbo for the shelter.  As I type, I have 50 quarts of it bubbling away.  I've had no time to photograph anything so I thought I would look back in time and see what I was doing at this same time of year.  I found these photos from 3 years ago.  It is never a good thing when you have to force open the door to push away the snow.

 You know how much I love winter and snow.

 But it is good to remind myself that too much of a good thing is, well....not good!

 This was the driveway I could not get out of for days.  Those are my arborvitaes bent over on the driveway.

 Miraculously, most of them survived.

 We had to knock all of the snow off of them and tie them upright again.

 Lots of shoveling was done to prepare piddle paths for Teddy.

 My sad little potting table became a groaning board.

 And the puppy was not happy at all.

Now I just have to figure out how to get this gumbo out to the car!
