We have had the absolute oddest weather in South Carolina this winter. This is our second snow fall in 3 weeks. You have to understand that most of South Carolina doesn't get snow for 10 years or more. I am not a big snow fan , but my little boy goes crazy with happiness and tried to get outside at 8 AM this morning. I held him off a short bit, but later we dressed and went outside to get some pictures.
It is sort of cloudy, and the only light is reflected off the snow. I looked around my garden, and noticed all the ' hats ' my statues had put on. Let me show you...
Here is my lady face on my tree, with her fluffy frou-frou hat on...
She looks very Celtic Northern to me here.
My little reading angel has a snow shawl on with her hat.
My two cherubs, my favorite statue , has the cutest hats on.
My chairs covered with snow upholstery.
I do not own snow boots, only rain boots, and my feet are already getting too cold after about 5 mins. out here. I have my husband's gigantic coat on that the hood keeps falling over my face and covering my eyes. Hard to take pictures , but I prevailed with a few.
That black large spot in the snow is Maxine ready for a walk.
My car with a new snow car cover.
Our sweet spaz Maxine has developed a torn ACL. Cost to fix, over 3000.00. The vet thinks she developed it from either her intense baseball antics ( she likes to play short-stop ), or spinning. We found out it is very prevalent with labs. My main goal with her right now is to not let her spin, very short walks, and no jumping in the truck .
She is my biggest baby.
There she goes. I keep telling her to stop, somebody get the leash form this cowgirl dog.
She's too happy most times.
My little boy and me . I can tell you that it is still difficult to smile for me. It will be 6 months since my daughter's death in a few days. I still expect to hear my phone buzz with a text from her, I still look for her in a car that looks like hers, I still look outside, hoping she will drive up. I still hope she will come to my front door. I do not feel that 6 months has passed, it feels like only a month has passed since the accident. I know that grief can be like this.
I ache to see her and hold her.
Little snow hat on my garden of good and evil girl statue.
My snow globe has a nice hat.
My two twin pups out front have snow hats, and are carrying snow in their baskets.
All those footprints are from our little boy going back and forth across the street to play and have snowball fights with his friend .
Mis-behaving and rowdy above.
Let me show you my beautiful oldest daughter and her husband who came by to see us. They moved about a block and a half from us , and we love to see them, though they are a busy young couple.
Look how happy they are, eyes shining.
Full of young love.
Okay, last picture, we finally got Maxine back inside, and settled her down with a rawhide dog bone.
Warm and cozy and calmer. True love here too , a dog and her bone.
Stay warm , sleep well,
