Spring < Just kidding

Well we had a great outting with the frends, lots of fun people to be with.
soaked, swam, had steak dinner, and a sleep over. You would think we were in our second child hood. Talked till late night, and slept till 8 am. Had coffee there and then went to Tremonton for Breakfast. All in all a great time.

It seems that spring was just kidding us. It left and winter returned.It snowed another 6 inches and has been cold and windy all week.
We had got the motorcycle out durring the false spring and went what we call around the block. Up Box Elder canyon through Cache Valley, and back home through Honneyville. just going around the mountain is about 50 miles, a nice little ride.

The bike has been parked in front of the house under it's cover ever since, it looks real sad covered with piles of snow.
hopefully it can come out again soon, I really would like to have mor spring befor the hot weather gets here.

I was going to go to physical therapy In Logan for Pool therapy, but we found out yesterday durring my first visit that the insurance won't help pay , so I don't think we will be able to aford it.
We have NO CLUE when or if Jerry will get any more of his Retirement money from Flying J,
since they filed for bankrupcy, all of the Company assets are frozen. we hav very little in saveings, and it will be running out soon.
Jerry and I are geeing very worried about what we are going to do.

I have been making some very cute flannel Baby blankets, if I could find a place to sell them I could suppliment our income.
I will try to take a photo of some and put it on my next addition to this Blog.

Oh well enough of that.

SPRING (finally)

Well I think SPRING if finally trying to break through winters strong hold.
I got the gardening bug yesterday. and actually planted some seeds in my above ground garden.
The cold weather seeds I planted are peas, raddish, and spinich. Hope they work.
Going to the hot springs in Downey Idaho this weekend with 6 couples, From the Golden Spike Bikers Club. They are haveing a special $30 to swim in the hot pools, followed by a steak dinner by candel light. Rather than drive back home late, we will be staying with hte couple that live in Malad ID. 30 min. from the hot springs. Should be a lot of fun. All fun people to be with.

And winter in Utah continues

All the snow had melted and signs of spring were peeking up from the ground
in the form of Poppys, tulips, daffodils, and a few blades of green grass amoung the dead yellowish lawns.

The turtles in the pond had come out to sun themselves on the rocks around the pond.

There were even a few robbins which always means Spring can't be too far off.

Then I awoke to The White fluffy stuff again this morning...... mabe a two or three inches, then it continued, and got thicker and deeper, at 2:00 PM it was up to 13 inches and still snowing HARD and HEAVY!
So winter in Utah will continue for a while longer.

We have had our Grand Bird (Blue and Gold McCaw) Buddy staying with us while His family refinnish their hardwood floors . He is such a sweat heart if he likes you, and I think he likes me a lot. He can suer be s cuddle bug In the evenings, when I take time to sit and watch TV. He will lay his head on my chest, and let me rub his head, he really likes that. Then he makes little purring like noises.

liveing in a winter wonderland

Yesterday we had one heck of a snowstorm lasting all day and leaving us with around a foot of snow. heavy white mounds covering the landscape.

It was beautiful to watch the changing variaty of flakes, from HUGE monster ones to teeny tiny ones that almost cause a white out they are so thick.

Snow plows trying to keep up with no luck, the road just gets covered again befor their next pass. Jerry trying to get out of the driveway this morning tore the Airdam off the truck getting thru the snow mounds left by the snow plow. OOPS!

All the bushes in the back yard are bent over with the heavy snow, creating snow tunnels that the dog loves to run thru, getting covered with snow.

There have been Deer in the area as I have seen the evidence (droppings and Tracks).

but I have not seen them myself, very elusive creatures in the city.
