snow week

Since Monday I feel like I've been in the movie Ground Hog Day, where you keep waking up to the same day over and over!  It looks like this in our driveway so my car has not moved.
All of the side roads that lead to our house looks like this, except for the big hills.  They are cleared.
I did leave the house one day to go with Peanut to get hay in the four wheel drive truck.  Otherwise I would not know what this road looked like!
This morning its still here! And still cold! And the forecast is for another winter storm!

This woodpecker has tried to peck our house down this week and when he couldn't succeed starting stealing the dog food.

On a brighter note the hot water in the kitchen just started running, it had frozen last night.

and miles to go. . .

When we were out in the snow feeding cattle today I was reminded of this poem that I had to memorize in junior high school!

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

By Robert Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

Today the oldest Ponderosa Princess celebrated her 37th birthday. She had a "surprise" party hosted by all her little Bs who love a good celebration!  Here are some pictures they sent.

big birthday celebration

My grands are all happy children.  It's hard to steal their joy!  They are excited about anything we do together, going for a walk, playing a game or riding the golf cart, but if there is a celebration involved they just about explode with excitement!  They all came this weekend to have a birthday celebration for me!  Mom and Dad cooked a big meal and we had a great time playing balloon games and eating ice cream cake.  They all pick out their own presents so you always get a treasure.  This month is filled with more birthdays and Valentine's Day so the excitement level is off the charts!

Happy Birthday to me!
