The Snowman in the yard is frozen hard

It’s been snowing allot, about every three days another storm rolls in. Last Saturday the snow was sticky and Faythe talked Jerel and I into building a GIANT SNOW-WOMAN. Jerel says it’s about seven feet tall but I think it’s closer to eight feet. Anyways it froze solid overnight and the weight of the ice caused it to settle. The settling has made it lean to one side a bit. Our snowman needs a V-8! I also built a snow burm in the back yard that gets taller every time it snows. It’s great for sledding down. You can see videos in the gallery.
School has started up again, I feel more ready for this semester than the last. I was able to work out study strategies last semester that should help me do well. At any rate school will keep my mind off of the headaches I get in the cold, and make the time move more quickly toward the warm weather.
The seed catalogs are coming in the mail. I love this time of year. It seems like just when the winter is the bitterest cold and I have begun to long for the fresh produce of summer, they come. Each page filled with bright and colorful plants so beautiful I can easy imagine the smell and taste of each one. It’s like getting a book of warm sunshine in the mail. I can’t wait to take naps in the hammock out in the garden in the warm summer sun.
