Storm weary

It's now past mid-February here and the snow is stacked high outside. The temperatures has finally gotten back up to around 0 C and the sun came out yesterday and even hung around a bit today. Of course, that makes the fact we're expected to have two snow storms this weekend seem even more dreary.
Winter has officially overstayed its welcome. Yeah, I know it's Canada but still, in a place where storms usually leaves amounts measured in feet, enough is enough.
I planted a pot of herbs today - parsley, basil and chives. I'm drinking more green teas, probably more of a reaction to the heavier black teas of winter. But today, I did receive two new ones - Celestial Seasonings Tangerine Orange Zinger and Zhena's Gypsy Rose Black tea with rose petals - they both seem pretty springy to me! Here's hoping they're good.


  1. Luckily we weren't hit too bad this weekend... mostly a wintry mix. In one month it'll be spring, but I bet we see snow til June!!

  2. We got enough this weekend - the main problem now is finding a place to put it - and what to do when the city plows lumber by (always after I shovel) and dump more snow in my driveway! There was a year here when we still had snow hanging around in June - I really hope we don't repeat that this year since I plan on doing some serious gardening this year!
