Snow, go away, come again another day.

Another Day, Another Dollar....

Why did that silly phrase come to mind. It is another day, Friday to be exact and time for http://aruraljournal.blogspot.com/ However, I am not sure how I will come up with another dollar!!

My Random Five Friday entries for today are:

1. The snow is beautiful but enough, already. I need for my driveway to melt. No, I mean the snow to melt off of the driveway. So I can get me outta the house. Cabin Fever!!
 


2. I worry about my birds. Too afraid of falling ( I seem to be an expert at that) to venture out in the snow to fill my feeders. Broken leg - Hungry birds.  Either one is not good but I don't want a break, that's for sure.
See the feeder is empty... the birds are scrounging around for spilt seed. Sad.


3. I seem to be in a constant stage of change lately. Moving furniture around again. Can't make up my mind where I want stuff to be. Maybe I have too much stuff.

4. Isn't it scary when you are bolted out of a deep sleep by a noise? And, then you realize it's just the ice-maker!

5. My Random Five from the past.....
We had just moved in to our home on Main Street when it came a big snow. I was delighted for we didn't get much snow in Alabama. This is a picture of our side yard. The year 2000.

                 Sure hope all my southern blog buddies are finished with this Polar Vortex stuff.
                       And, as far as it's concerned it can leave us alone too!! Stay warm, you all.

Here at least the snow is mostly gone from the streets and there is not a lot left anywhere...it is sure pretty when it first falls...I used to follow your quilt blog...will start checking in on you here!

(I definitely have too much stuff!)

Karen said...

I haven't been outside in ages. Luckily this weekend it's supposed to warm up a bit! And...I have way too much stuff!

Maggie Ann said...

Its been wicked cold here in Pa. but we've stayed home and near the cozy wood burner. =) enjoyed your pictures and I agree...your safety is the most important thing. We'll get a meltdown one of these weeks. Think so? =)

Gattina said...

Wow ! you have a lot of snow ! I haven't seen a single snowflake yet this year !

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I'm afraid we'll have snow for the next month or two. I've fallen so many times, that I finally bought some cleats for my boots - they do help a bit. I hope your snow melts soon - be careful and stay warm!

We've gotten 5 storms in January but luckily they haven't been too bad. The worst was 8 inches!
Let's all cheer loudly for Spring!

i had heard they are calling for more snow in VA next week. sounds like we might be getting even more. we will see??! ( :

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Falling isn't good, so be careful if you venture out. I'm not afraid of snow except when it gets packed and is slippery like ice. Maybe you might be able to sling some bird seed out a window or back door. The hungry birds will find it, I'll bet. (Don't tell anyone, but I've been known to do that when the patio is a solid sheet of ice! The birds were grateful.)
We're supposed to get some snow tonight or tomorrow. I'm like everyone else and so ready for spring!
Have a nice weekend!

Yes to the snow and winter to be gone for another year. It's been mild here (can't complain to loudly) but I'm ready for warmer weather. I feed birds too. A suggestion, just throw the seed out on the snow and they should be able to pick some of it off the snow.
We seriously need a good "spring de-cluttering" of stuff here at our house. We've things we haven't used in years so it's time for them to go.

The snow is pretty to look at but I wouldn't want to venture out in it either! I wish I could rearrange my furniture but there just isn't enough room to change things around. (sigh)

Sarah Huizenga said...

You guys are definitely not ready for snow. Where I live it is unfortunately all too much a way of life.

Linda said...

I'm ready for spring to come but it'll take it's sweet time! Stay warm!

Nancy Claeys said...

... I often feel somewhat guilty when the feeders are empty -- but those darn sparrows empty them in a day. I can't seem to keep up! :)

HOOTIN ANNI said...

To me, snow is only pretty, through the view of photos and online. NOT living where it snows.

The birds will wait for you...I'm sure they're finding stuff good to eat under all that white stuff!

Blackberry Lane said...

Snow is pretty but we get stir crazy too! We waited till the ice/snow melted and then John slipped and fell on some slick mud in the yard.
I remember your visit to Lake Lanier and the photos you shared. We've had so much rain the lake is still at full pool.

Enjoy your day.

poor birdies, but i understand your need for safety, too!

we've not had any flakes in our area of NE Tx this winter. usually we'll get a dusting and some ice. we've had lots of hard freezes, though.

happy february!

No snow here in my part of the UK just rain, rain and more rain....

abrianna said...

I am one of those /So/u/t/h/e/r/n/ folks, but I have lived in colder climates. We had ice a total of three mornings from that storm. What most folks don't realize is that people are not prepared for it and there are no plows nor salt to treat the roads,since that would be as waste of money.

We did not lose power. North of us though was very bad.

Mary said...

You are sensible to be cautious about heading outside........nothing is worth risking a fracture. Your birdies will survive I'm sure. I sent Bob out to fill our feeder while it was slippery - I just stood on the porch and tossed out handfuls of seed and crumbs!

Take care - Mary

So enjoying your photos of the birds at the bird feeders. I had to take down our feeders as I do not think it a good idea to feed the kitty who started stalking the birds. Now that we know we are to expect 6 more weeks of winter we will all have to start getting creative in getting out and taking some photos.

Karen Schurr said...

Good idea to play it safe with the snow and ice outside. Those birdies will find enough food for a few days. I found our bird feeder heater in the yard sale boxes and plugged it in....didn't think I'd need it here :)

Marie said...

Great Random 5. I bet the snow is finally gone now. Hope you are having a good February. We are back home to 70 degree temps...boy, we've gotten spoiled now! When it was in the teens in TX & NM while we were there I was so miserable getting out to get gas or make a potty run!

Snow seems to be the gift that keeps on giving this year! Hope you fared well in this week's snowy offering.
