Happy January 31th, 2016. It's my son's birthday today and he is 36 years old. He lives in Barrie, Ontario so I won't be seeing him or able to make him a cake for his birthday but I do hope he has a nice day.
Well, we got some snow on Friday and over night Saturday but it is not like we got last year. We only got a couple of inches which is great. Hubby got out his tractor yesterday and cleaned up the driveway. We where working in town doing our traffic control but it was for tree cutters who where cutting down two big trees so we could work on the pole that was in between them. We spent all day guarding the road and stopping traffic when they took the tops off the trees and they had to fall on the road way. Both trees where rotten inside and it was just a question of when they would fall down and cause problems. It was a long day and it got lousy when about noon time it started to snow, first it was wet and just alittle bit and then it started to really snow and stick to everything. My signs and my safety glasses got so much snow on them I was having a hard time seeing thru the glasses and keeping my sign cleaned off. Finally around 4 p.m. the tree cutters all it a day. They got most of the smaller branches cleaned up and piles the bigger ones, so they could come back on Monday to finish the job. They had a wood chipper behind their truck so they could make saw dust of the branches. Glad there wasn't allot of snow and it did melt some on Saturday so the larger logs would not get buried in snow. It was a long and cold wet day. We where glad to get home and I made clam chowder for supper with tea biscuits to go with.
This tractor sure has paid for itself with all the snow that came last year and what will come this winter. At 70 years old I do not want my hubby pushing a snow blower down our long driveway any more.
This is the back field of our house.
This is the nieghbour's place. See we don't have allot of snow, which is just the way I like it.
This the book that I am reading right now. The Finest Hours, I want to see how close they did the movie to the book. It is very interesting. The hell those poor guys on the ships went thru is unreal. I would never want to work on an oil tanker and work in the seas off Cape Cod. Scary.
And this is an Easter stitch I am working on at the moment besides all the others that I showed you last time.
