Snow! and LetterMo!

The 2nd snow storm of the season brought us 10 inches of snow plus some rain that made the trees all icy. Pretty big branches are coming down, I hope we get to keep our electricity!

I live in an area of very mild winters... we might get a single dusting of snow, but it's supposed to be 50°F and raining. Ten inches of snow and the ice, is crazy. Climate change crazy!

The snow is distracting and scary and beautiful and fun... And I think I got a photo worth making into a postcard. Which brings me to LetterMo.

LetterMo is an annual challenge, to write and send mail every day the post runs during the month of february. It's tons of fun and this is my third year participating.

Last year I sent out 108 postcards and letters. I should be able to beat that easily. And I want to make a real effort to send replies. I always say that, but this time I have a system.

ha. Having "a system" makes me feel organized, at the very least!

I am having fun... and I've barely even started! I have much catching up to do. At the beginning of the year I was two months behind on my personal mailing project... So I hope to mail out Nov, Dec, Jan and Feb postcards to my friends and family. I don't even know how I got that far behind!

Yes. Spring is on the way...


And today, at the garden plot, I discovered a couple of crocuses were hiding underneath the aster bush that I never got around to cutting down.

Also at the garden, there is a mystery bulb that's just starting to grow... I had discovered it when we dug up the plot last fall, and I replanted it in the front, not knowing what it was or if it would live or not.

It's alive, and I can't wait to see what kind of flower it will make!
