PLAYING WITH A SHOVEL & HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANIEL

Someone asked me how much snow did we had. It's hard to say. We've had storms after storms like lots of you and high winds that moved the snow where it wanted.

At the farm, the snow bank is up to the roof of one of the barns and on my back deck I measured the snow at being 33 inches deep.



Call me crazy but I love to shovel snow as long as I'm not cold.  This new shovel works like a charm as long as I put the the elbow grease in.   The snow was perfect for shovelling. It needed to be done as we couldn't open the door to the rear entrance anymore.


I shovelled a path to the bird feeders. It was the only way I was able to fill their feeders. I had to shovel down two sets of steps. It was deep there too but I removed some snow on top so the path didn't feel like a tunnel.


Here the snow is very deep. The compost bin sits on the ground and see how high the snow is around it. It had to be dug out so we could use it....
It took me about two hours of shovelling in all  and I loved every minute of it. I didn't rushed.


  Here is the amount of snow on the roof of the back entrance. It needs to be removed.


Before I left Ottawa, we celebrated Daniel's 2nd birthday in advance and Christine made him a train cake.  She had a minor mishap and it leaned a bit but it looked very cute anyway.  Look at Daniel  smiling as we all sang happy Birthday. Notice the Valentine heart on the back.


In the blink of an eye, Daniel grabbed a jellied worm and sucked it in and then grabbed the candle.



Mama retrieved the worm candy and helped him blow the candle. The worm candy was cut in small manageable pieces. Somehow I have no picture of him eating cake.

Thanks for visiting. Prayers for friends who have to deal with serious illness and traumas and hardships in their lives.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.
