Over It

Nine inches of snow. That's how much we have gotten so far. It's a heavy, wet snow. If I could find my camera I'd post a picture.

Mom has asked me at least a dozen times so far when her hair appointment is. When I remind her that it's not for 10 days she accepts that only to ask again. She looks out the window and sees all of the snow and decides (wisely) that she's not going to go out. The plows have been through and the snow is completely melted on the streets and sidewalks. It won't be around for long.

I received my strawberry planters today! The strawberries will arrive sometime in May and then we can plant them. It will be fun. I hope I can avoid getting the cut worms that I usually have to contend with.
