Waiting for the sky to fall...okay, the roof, actually.

Look, Mom! I'm Queen of Dion's hill, too!
Is today going to be the day? I really wish my garage roof would slide soon. I have been locking Blew up in the garage so that she (or her chain) won't get buried, but it is taking its own sweet time. Blew probably wishes it would happen, too. She hates being locked up. If it doesn't slide by the time I leave for Idaho Falls around noon today, I will take her with me. She won't have much fun, waiting in the car for me to do my shopping and then a temple visit, but I wouldn't feel right about locking her up in the garage for over eight hours, either. At least this way I will be able to take her on a couple of short walks. Slide, roof, slide!

Free Snow...Come and Get Yours Today!

When I came home for lunch today, there was no sign of Blew, just her chain stretching up over the snow by the side of the house and out of sight. I went inside and put on my snow boots, snow pants and gloves, because I knew she was probably tangled up out back somewhere. I did look out the sliding glass doors (which I haven't used since at least December) to see if I could get to her easier that way. I can't figure out how to rotate the picture in blogger, so you will have to turn your head sideways to see why I couldn't go out the sliding glass door to rescue her! (I rotated the picture on the disc, but it didn't load that way.) So, I climbed the hill and set off out back. Sure enough, she had gone around the post holding the bird feeder and not just once! Evidently she found out she was stuck and kept trying to untangle herself. She just doesn't understand that you have to go the opposite way around to get undone.

After I got back from having my teeth cleaned, I got my camera and went back out to take pictures. Blew thought we were playing and she romped around and rolled in the snow. I tried to get a picture of how long the hair is on the bottoms of her front feet, but it didn't turn out too well. You can tell she is having fun, though. It is nice to be able to see the 5 foot marker on my snow pole. The snow has melted a little bit--and yes, that is snow falling as I am taking pictures.

Anybody want some snow? Come and get it, I won't object!

The Countdown Begins!

I AM TIRED OF THE SNOW!!! This is a picture I had my carrier take of me last week standing by the snow pile in the back of our parking lot. She didn't quite get the top of the pile in, but you can tell we have a little bit of snow. Mormon Hill in the church parking lot is pretty amazing, also. Two years ago it was still quite high for Memorial Day Weekend. I'm hoping it will melt a little faster this year.
Okay, so I know that I have at least two and half more months of seeing the white stuff, but I am so ready for some green.
This year our birthday vacation is St. George, Utah, and the countdown has begun. Only 37 more days! Are you ready Carma?
