See you in Spring!

No, I'm not going anywhere. That's just my message to anyone that knows me locally. I thought things were clearing up here on our hill, but we got some more snow last night, and we are under a storm warning for several more inches of snow. I did manage to get out last week on Friday with Paul's car, but today Paul managed to find an inconvenient parking spot for his car and we are now stuck on the hill. Even my dad's truck is stuck up here because he didn't want to risk trying to get around Paul's vehicle. So I'm staying here until the spring when things will hopefully be well thawed!!

Ready to see what happened today when he tried to go to town?

That's my dad and husband consulting to see how they are going to get it back up again. They decided to try putting it in 4 wheel drive and backing it out. No luck... there it stays. The plan is to put chains on it tomorrow and try to back it out with chains. We'll see...

It's not actually very much snow, but that snow is just the right consistency that it's packing right down to ice. I barely stayed on my feet when I went up to close up the chicken coop this evening. It could have been worse, though. He could have been hurt. Or he could have slide the other direction into the pond. The hood is banged up, and a headlight is busted out. One fender is much worse for the wear. Please let Spring hurry up!

I haven't posted my "Make Something Monday" yet, either. I do have a project in mind and if I could get into the sewing room for just a little while, I could whip it out quickly enough. I'm going to try my best to get it done this evening. So I may manage to post it a bit later!

I would hole up till Spring too! Can't blame you a bit. Usually we have pretty mild winters here in Georgia, but this year it has been crazier than usual. Swing in to see me...there are a few things going on. Perhaps you will win yourself a little pick-me-up.

Oh no, sorry about your truck! I am so ready for Spring too!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
