I try not to let them get me down. Rainy days and Mondays that is. It's better than snow, so I'm not complaining one little bit.
Hubby and I took Chloe out to play at the lake on Saturday. She loved running through the snow in the field. The lake is still completely frozen over. Can you see the bumper floats that are used to anchor jet ski's in the summer? Somebody forgot to remove them before the lake froze. Do you think they'll still float when it thaws?
Even though there is no snow left at our house a mere 25 minutes away, there is plenty here in the mountains and valley's surrounding the lake. This is looking across the lake. Yep. Frozen solid, but not solid enough that I was brave enough to walk on it. It's hard to believe that we'll be swimming out there in a couple of months isn't it?
This is what we found behind our trailer. With so much moisture, rain and snow this winter, the bank of new crushed granite that the park brought in last fall has erroded. It looks like well have work to do when we return in a few weeks. We need to plant some shrubs or grass to hold the granite stable.
A trench big enough to lay in!
After we left the lake, we went to our favorite Thai restaurant in Deer Park. These are the absolute best egg rolls I've ever had. We make this drive all winter long, just for these egg rolls.
My favorite dish is their cashew chicken. Hubby always gets teriyaki chicken. The lady who owns this restaurant used to have a street food cart in Bangkok. This is as close to the "real deal" as you can get. Hubby gets 2 stars for heat but I get absolutely NO stars!
And this is what I'm doing today. Putting a border on a baby blanket for the local hospital with Sophie cuddled underneath. In case you're wondering, I alway wash everything before I take it to the hospital so there are no "dog germs" on the baby things. I'm sure they sanitize them too before actually distributing them.
Yesterday, just for excitement after church, hubby & I replaced the rubber flappers on all three toilets. Doesn't that sound exciting? I've made the mistake of using those Clorox drop-ins in the tank and the bleach completed destroyed the rubber flappers. I won't do that again. I did like that bleachy smell though when the toilet was flushed. When I smelled that it made me feel that they were being kept clean in between scrubbings. Now...isn't that a fun subject for a blog? Does anyone out there have a product they like to use to keep those nasty lime and hard water stains away that doesn't destroy those flappers?
Not much else happening in my part of the world. I hope you're all having a lovely day, anticipating spring. The rain we're getting gives me hope that spring is actually on it's way. After all, as I said before, it's not snow!
