Snow 2011

In Georgia, this is rare.  The whole metro area is completely shut down.  We are not equipped for severe winter weather – really though, why should we be?  It is such a remote happening, why throw money at something that might happen, when there are other much more valid things that can utilize state resources?

I am not a big snow person.  I didn’t enjoy the slopes on youth snow-skiing trips, just the extra chance for socializing.  Bring on the 65-75 degree weather and I am a happy clam.

We got about 5″ at our house.  It was almost immediately encased in crusty ice.  We got out and brushed the snow off Bradley’s truck windows before it had a chance to freeze over and become a pita to scrape off.  Looking down our street:

The poor mourning doves don’t perch in trees like other birds, and since there was no clear ground for them, they huddled en masse along our fence.

I scrapped the snow off the flat feeder for the birds and put out an extra batch for them.  There were a lot of Juncos out, which are ground feeders, so I scattered a few handfulls across the crusted-over snow.  It was fun to watch them and the Song Sparrows slide around chasing seeds.  In addition, we had quite a few Cardinals, Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, House Finches, and Blue Jays.  They are so much fun to watch on a solid white backdrop.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
