These are our precious little pugs, Napoleon, Sadie,and Wrinkles. All this snow has really put a damper on their ability to roam free in the back yard...now they have a lone path my dh did with the snow blower! Sadie is the little quiet one until she sees a squirrel...then the hair jumps up on her back, and the barking starts...Wrinkles would pipe in now and then for his thing is a CAR...Now that we've added Napoleon all three of them are barking away when a squirrel appears...Not thinking I put a bird seed block on the back deck and low and behold what did I find out there eating away the past 2 days, yep a squirrel. Most of them stay beyond the fence knowing Sadie will chase them, but this little guy was determined to get his belly full...As I opened the back door for the dogs to go out this morning all three ran out barking their heads off..ehehehe!!! That little guy was already up on the deck eating....as he ran across the high snow piles Napoleon decided he'd take a shortcut....sure, up he went to the top of the snow that is about 5 ft tall...he didn't sink thank God..for could you just see ME trying to get him out??? NOT
So they have really had their exercise today...running up and down the path first after the little guy, then after those remained behind the fence!!!
Isn't it amazing how just little things can bring such joy to our hearts?? I love it!!!
Hope you weren't bored...and I"m not going to proof read it so excuse the mistakes..eehehhe~~~
I can't tell you how much this awesome sight touched my heart and spirit! As you know we've been surrounded by so much snow, and not much sun...well it was actually Sunday this morning as I headed for the front deck with my first cup of coffee...I don't go anywhere without my camera so when I opened the front door to take a peek at the birds singing while filling their little bellies I was greeted with just a touch of that golden light off in the distance! I turned on my camera, and got the first shot (there were actually 6 in all.ehehe) I breathed in the cool morning air as I sipped my coffee waiting for the sun to rise more thinging to myself, "God you give us so much, things that money can't buy" and I thank you so much for providing for us. Right???

This has been a record snow for Feb in many years..today there is blizzard conditions with snow drifts up to 6 feet...Yikes...I'm staying in where it's warm, and thank God we haven't lost electricity at all...our daughter, Lisa has several times so dh took a oil heater over yesterday incase they loose it again...I pray for all those who've been without for days even a week since the last storm. At least we can put our food in the snow if we lose power. Hubby is still sore and tire from shoveling all the snow off the roof yesterday. Living in an old doublewide there were concerns as to the roofs stability...now at least the blowing winds will help get ride of new fallen snow!!!
Please all those in the path of this storm be safe, don't overdue and stay warm

This is what I woke to yesterday morning! The birds were flying up into the trees causing the snow to fall every which way making it a joy to watch..they were swooping down for feed we'd put out for them. God brings us much beauty to see doesn't he? The next snow is due around noon tomorrow. Washington DC is supposed to get about a foot, but up here in the mountains North of there we could get far more...We are ready even if we can't get out for days. I pray for all those in the path of this storm that they be safe and ready. Ahhh are you ready for the biggest event yet to come??? I pray also for those who haven't chosen to receive God's awesome gift of life with HIM for all eternity...think about it it could be tomorrow or next week...we all need to be prepared...It's the most important decision in our lives...Blessings!!!
