April Snow Brings ?

This is the view outside my front door two minutes ago

 
More Snow!!  Can you believe this?! 

 
I tossed extra birdseed & stale bread out for the birds to help them cope with today.  It was supposed to be freezing rain (which isn't much better),  and "heavy at times" this afternoon ... but snow?! 
 
I was going to stop and trim some pussy willows from a tree I passed yesterday, I think I'll just stay indoors now and pull dog and knitting into my lap to stay cozy.
 
Hope it's green where you are!

  1. Oh, that's certainly not nice, it should be spring now!! We had snow today too, Wendy, large flurries of snow falling down, but luckily it melted as it hit the ground.
    Keep warm and enjoy your knitting :)

    1. Oh dear, you too! And we had a wicked thunderstorm two nights ago ... first of the year with the thunder rattling our windows. Strange weather. Everything has turned icy now, but they promise warmer weather by the weekend.

  3. Oh no, more snow? Ours has finally all melted and apparently it's forecast to warm up here this weekend. Nothing like cuddling a pup and some knitting to keep you warm - enjoy, and I hope Spring gets to you very soon.

  4. Hi Wendy, I wore a winter jacket this morning, downtown we had more icy rain not so much snow like that.
    I am looking forward to the knitted pillow. Keep warm :)

    1. I wore my winter gear today too. I used to work downtown, and was lucky enough to be able to walk all the way underground from Union Station to my office on Bay, then University. It helped on yucky days like today ;)

  9. Dog and knitting on lap sounds the perfect way to spend this day Wendy.....
    Wish I could package up some sunshine and warmth and send it your way.

    Hope you have a warmer weekend,

  11. Oh wow thats a lot of snow! Its snowing here too but just big flurries that are barely covering the ground. What is with this weather. Good for you to just snuggle up with a pup and some knitting. Stay warm.

  12. Let's face it, this spring sucks. Big time. On the bright side, it looks like you have a nice big front yard. :)
