Sunrise one morning a couple weeks ago.
It's a storm day here in New Brunswick. We are getting a nor'easter but this one is bringing snow, ice pellets, freezing rain and rain ~ depending on where you live. This weather is spawned by the terrible weather in the southern US where there were tornados in Georgia and so many were killed or injured, and so much damage was done. I can't imagine going through that and my heart goes out to those affected.
We are still being visited by deer. This mama and baby were eating the dead grass where the snow had melted. Last evening at dusk there was a mama and twins in the yard! We are becoming a popular spot to visit.
We are in the ice pellets/freezing rain area at the moment. Schools were closed before 7 AM this morning due to the 'impending bad weather' although it didn't really start until after lunch time here. The salt truck has made a pass by the house already. I'm grateful that Murray was able to work from home today and didn't have to drive to the city.
I bought a bouquet of tulips over a week ago at the grocery store. They are grown in Prince Edward Island and shipped to local stores every winter. I really enjoy having fresh blooms inside during the winter months. These were a rich rose and white colour but they faded as they aged. I did a photoshoot with a few one day in the snow on the deck.
Thanks for your good wishes regarding the cold I've been fighting that I mentioned in my last post. I'm afraid it finally got me on Saturday afternoon. We had gone to town to go for a walk on the old train bridge as it was a mild zero Celsius degrees, although cloudy and raw. By the time I got home I had chills and couldn't get warm and my sinuses stuffed up. I went to bed early and I stayed in bed until 2 on Sunday afternoon. I NEVER stay in bed when I'm sick and also NEVER not get dressed for the day but on Sunday I did. I felt awful - coughing, sneezing and runny nose. Yesterday I felt a bit better and got some cold meds at the pharmacy which knocked me out for a couple hours in the afternoon....due to lack of sleep the previous night....and today I feel so much better except for a dry cough. I'll live. 😀
The last of the pretty tulip bouquet deserved a photoshoot too.
I hope you all have a nice week ahead. I will post some photos of our walk on the train bridge in a couple of days.
Take care my friends.
