Say It Ain't So...

Another six weeks of winter? Blah...

They pulled Punxsutawney Phil out of his hole today, and the old stinker saw his shadow!

Did you know that since 1887 Phil has seen his shadow 97 times, not including the nine years they don't have records for? Is it time to give the job to some animal that casts less shadows? Doesn't it just seem likely that ol' Punxsutawney likes winter and that's why he has had so many years calling for another six weeks of it? Honestly, why wouldn't a hibernating animal want six more weeks of sleep anyhow?

Personally, I don't get the whole shadow thing anyhow. If Phil sees his shadow, doesn't that mean it's sunny out? Shouldn't that mean sunnier days are closer? Seems to me that no shadow would spell more winter gloom. It occurs to me that nobody has bothered to ask my opinion anyhow...

Great questions! What a funny post, it even made the prospect of 6 more weeks of winter less dreary!

I love your take on this. Although I want snow so a little bit more winter doesn't bother me but I know for some snow isn't that great of a thing.

I've been saying that same things for years! LOL

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.
