White Knight in Blue Jeans

This morning. Same view.

But, the temperature is above freezing now, and the snow is beginning to fall off of the branches. I have been out shoveling all morning. I was just tackling a path to the mailbox when a white knight in blue jeans, aka my next door neighbor, came over with his snow blower. He told me that my face was beet red and that I should go inside, which I gladly did. He's now out there cleaning out my driveway, so I can get out, if I have to.

We've had a lot of heavy, wet snow out of this storm. This is a standard height bird bath. I haven't made it to that bird feeder yet, but it's a finch feeder, and I haven't seen any there since around November, so I'm in no big hurry.

I did the path over to the big bird feeder all by myself (aren't I wonderful, not)!

Cleared a big patch around the feeder so that the ground birds had a place to land, and put down some sunflower seeds and cracked corn.

And, since Gina is sleeping on the blanket and beadspread that I have to wash today, I guess I'll join her for a bit.

We are expecting more snow this afternoon....and for the Matzo Ball biggie....just buy the boxed matzo/soup mix....follow the directions on the back....EXCEPT....i leave the matzo mix in the refrigrator for at least an hour....make them the size of giant marbles and use 6C chicken stock and 4C water...equals out to the 2 1/2 quarts the directions call for......if i have them...i sometimes add chopped carrots, celery and onions....yummm-o!!....easy-peasy and keeps forever!!

Stay warm....LindaMay

We're having snow today too! My lady had to snow blow the driveway out today again and will probably have to tomorrow! I'm so glad your neighbor came over to help. Guys like to use their snow blowers anyway so it was just fun for him! hee hee

Isobelle, you are so right about men and their snow toys!

Linda May, I love Matzo ball soup. I used to live in Studio City, California and frequented the deli on Ventura Blvd. (and I'll be damned if I can remember the name!). I had their matzo ball soup everytime I went in there.

Yes, it's easy to make and sooo satisfying!

What a winter you have back east!! Here in the California mountains we get a blizzard one minute and then it has melted the next. That's what happened yesterday. I wish it would stay for a while, but at least I don't have to shovel!
