Another snowy, wintry day here today, but it's not quite so cold, so I'm not quite so cranky.
Thing 2 has project assignment at school that involves doing things around the house. I'm not sure what the object of the assignment is, but this is one homework task that I can totally get behind. One of her ideas was to shovel the driveway when it needs it, and considering the way this winter seems to be shaping up, she could be out there permanently until May.
Here she is trying to heave a shovel full up onto the waist-high snowbanks beside the driveway. She's a trooper.

All that glorious, lush and dazzling show was very welcome on this snowy, January afternoon. It will be spring someday!
