Okay, I shut up now

Dear friends, I have a confession to make. I may or may not be known for complaining once in a while a lot once in a while (I'm working on it!).
Case in point? The dreaded S-word. No, I'm not swearing, I'm talking about the white stuff: silently floating down the sky, sugar-coating everything and making life difficult.

You know, there is a time and place for everything in life. November, December, even January? Those are acceptable months for pretty snow/turning into slush/turning into mud.
But the end of February, after a few tantalizing days of brilliant sunshine and almost balmy temperatures?
That's just not fair.

It snowed non-stop for 48 hours all through the weekend.
I complained bitterly to anybody and everybody who would listen (and a few who would probably have preferred not to) how annoying it was. How much extra work. How I'm sooveritandIwantspringnowdammit!


Yesterday I woke up to the most breathtaking sight. The sky was an almost electric blue. The sun was dazzling. And the snow sparkled and glittered like a million diamonds scattered about.
'Twas a slight to behold!

So I did what any self-respecting wannabe-photographer would do: jumped out of bed, squealed in delight, threw puppy out on the deck, slid into my trusty gumboots (pyjama pants and all) and dashed outside for a little picture session.

The morale of the story? Even something annoying (like snow in late February) has an upside. 
So stop bitching, Miriam!

Happy humpday!

  1. ahh! so lovely! i'm glad you had at least one beautiful snow day among the yucky ones. :)

  2. I am so sick of the snow too! Pretty pictures! We've had some snow here but I've been too lazy to get out and take picture. :)

    1. We don't ever get much, so there's always the novelty factor. But after 2 days I had enough! Thankfully, it has started to melt now. I'm ready for spring!

  3. Looks a little chilly but absolutely beautiful!! Wonderful photos :)

  4. At least you found a silver lining to the snow- I am so over it!

  5. Great pictures! I particularly like the 2nd and 3rd one. So cute to see your gaggle of birds there :)

    1. They always seem a bit confused by snow. It's almost like they are wondering: what the heck happened to the dirt and grass? Where did it go?

  6. I love the pictures! I am so over snow too.... but I am not looking forward to the mud and having to wash it off of the dogs each time to go out to pee. I swear they drag their bellies in the stuff just to piss me off! LOL

  7. Bitch all you want Miriam. I hate snow. I don't care how pretty or photogenic it is I am a warm weather woman. LOL! I like your bloggy! Stopping by from Fitness Blonde's Link up.

  9. It's still snowing every day, here, too! It's pretty...but I still have 5 ft. drifts in my yard. I think I prefer to look at pretty pictures of it instead. :)

  10. The pictures are gorgeous... I'll give you that. But I think of the REAL s word when I think of snow. ;)

  11. Hi Miriam, glad to find your blog through the link up. I am curious about the farm life and now I can read all about it here :) Great pictures !

  12. That photo of the trees above the llamas is amazing. Beautiful. Makes me almost want snow.

    And I feel like the feeling across the entire United States is for winter to please, please go away. It's been a harsh one here, so I'm guessing it has been there too! Now I'm off to sit in my Texas sun for a little while. ;)

  13. It's a winter wonderland!! Gorgeous pho-tos!


  14. i'm so sick of all the snow too, but your photos are SO pretty!
