Good evening, everyone..
It is finally over.. The worst storm that I can remember..
We have lived here in this house for 30 years and I have never seen this before..
This is what we woke up to this morning..
This is our Kitchen window over the sinks..
Seeing is believing.. Right?
See the top of the pine tree there.. That is the top of it..
The storm started early Sunday morning and went on until this morning..
Blizzard conditions with white outs and high winds..
Yesterday, I was speaking to our daughter on the phone and she was wondering what kind of soup I had going.. smile..
The kids kinda make fun of me because storm day is just another excuse to make soup,, eh?
After awhile I did make this one..
Olive Garden\s Zuppa Toscana Soup
The recipe is HERE..
It is on my Pinterest..
I made mine with Kale though...
First thing today, Terry got ready to go in to help Dustin (our youngest son) with his snow removal business..
He had done some snow blowing last evening so he would be ready but when he went out this morning the driveway was full again... sigh..
He is not a spring chicken any more and I felt bad about him having to do the drive again and then go and push the snowblower all day..
But the Lord sent a special someone to plow him out..
We have great neighbours... thank you, sir..
While I was waiting for him to actually get gone..
You know what I mean.. grin..
I decided to feed the birds some leftover bread that I had..
Yup.. This is our front door..
See the drift..
Right up to the roof..
The birds found the bread though..
And this is our front family room window..
I cannot see out at all..
But that is fine..
The house is darker then usual, though but the sun manages to get in around the top...
I will just double up on Vitamin D.. smile..
Terry will shovel it away after today..
He just needs to help our son as the poor kid has so many driveways to do and there is just so much snow..
Really, we Canadians hardly ever whine this much but this is unreal...
On with the show..
I needed to do something fun today so I made this wreath..
I copied it off of one that I seen in a UK Country Living a while back..
And glued the pic on my home made calender..
Does anyone know what kind of style this is?
I don't know but it is pretty and brightens up my foyer on this Winter's day...
You just tie knots in fabric. I used 4 or 5..
I was blessed to have a pile of vintage quilt blocks in my workroom that I forgot I had..
Tie a red ribbon on a grapevine wreath and then secure the knotted fabrics in bunches around it..
Top each knotted bunch with an old piece of jewellery..
I used my glue gun..
It was a really easy wreath to make..
I had to show my friends who do not live here in Eastern Canada and are fans of Anne of Green Gables just what her house looked like today..
I found this on Twitter and it was by Scot Meiklejohn..
Well, dear hearts this is all for tonight..
I hope you enjoyed the snow pics and I look forward to hearing from you..
The sun is trying to get through..
Just like the storms of life..
This too, shall pass..
I hope I didn't bore you all with the weather..
If you are Canadian that is what you talk about..
Some weather we are having, eh?
No.. really.. that is how we talk.. grin..
We have reached the 500 Google Followers so next post I hope I have a little give-away ready for you all..

You guys rock..
Okay, okay... Just this one last one from the weather station ..
The guy said he thinks he needs a bigger snowblower..
Only in Canada, eh?
