It's still winter

I found this sitting outside this morning.  Apparently the kids thought it would be good to play with all the mud we've had lately.  It's looking kind of rusty right now and seems to express exactly how I feel right now.  I just want this winter to be over so that I can go out and play in the garden.  
We have had some more crazy weather this week.  We've had snow, hail, rain (lots of rain), more snow and hurricane force winds just for good measure.  Next week will be no different, I'm afraid.  I have to keep reminding myself that we still have months left until full gardening season begins.  I should just be relaxing and enjoying myself, but I'm always wanting the next thing.  

While I was out, Noah's best friend was out walking his dog.  They decided to take the dogs for a walk together.
Toby is about 4 times bigger than this other dog, but they seemed to be having a nice time playing as well.  The kids were having a bit of a hard time keeping them controlled though.  They want the dogs to be best friends, just like they are.   It's very cute.

Can't wait for spring. Suppose to be wet, wet and more wet this week but the temps are suppose to be just over freezing during the day. Soon it'll be time for maple syrop... looking forward to it.

Heather, I'm so ready too. I want this winter to be done. If it's going to be cold, I want big, sleddable hills, not cold, wet puddles.

And Farmwifetwo: maple syrup---yes---totally psyched for that too.

Farmwifetwo, it sounds like you're having similar weather. I can't wait for maple syrup season either.

FOM, I'm with you, even the kids are done with it. If they can't go sledding, winter is useless to them.

We decided just to go with the flow. We are in NH right now at a B&B and have been skiing. At least I'm getting outside.

Daphne, that's the way to do it!
