We had the warnings of a snowfall coming
overnight Saturday and into Easter Sunday,
but the snow just kept coming. Heavy wet snow!
About 15 cm. of it!
Out came the boots this morning.
Murray had to clean the car off and we travelled
snow laden roads to church. By the time we came
home at 12:30 the snowfall had doubled and the roads
were really sloppy with heavy slush.
I've been trying to remember to take my camera with
me in the car to get photos of the hundreds of geese that
stop over along the river. Today, I remembered!
No, just Canada geese. Hundreds of them.
I took these from the car with the window down.
Can you see how hard it is snowing?
The geese really stand out against the snowy fields.
We had a wonderful weekend with our Easter drama
which was on Friday and Sunday evenings.
On Saturday we got a lot of chores done around the house
inside and out. I raked part of the lawn and removed the
leaf mulch from 2 flower beds. I knew we were going to get
some snow so I left some leaves around the perennials to
protect them. It's wonderful to see the new growth hiding
under the leaves. All together I got 5 large green bags of debris.
My back couldn't take any more raking and bending so I
had to stop.
Thankfully the snow won't last long as we are to get rain
showers and milder temperatures for the next few days.
The snow will be gone and the grass will really start to green up.
Our son, Mark, came for Easter dinner on Saturday.
We had ham, red skinned potatoes, asparagus, tossed salad
and for dessert we had strawberries and home made cookies.
Do you remember me saying I wasn't going to make cookies
until Easter? Well, I made a batch last week and froze them
to have for Easter weekend. Now, I have to behave myself. :)
What did you get accomplished this Easter weekend?
Have a wonderful week ahead!
