Celebrations February 20, 2015 - Winter, wolves, polar bears and cats with scarves

Welcome to the February 20 edition of the Celebrating the Small Things blog hop, started by VikLit and now run by Lexa Cain, our fearless new leader and her two wonderful co-hosts L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Katie @ TheCyborgMom

Howdy, Neighbor! Where's the food??
Today I am celebrating the fact that my roof has not caved in and I have not encountered an angry polar bear.  At least not yet.  In view of the arctic temperatures southern New England has been *cough* enjoying over the past month, I expect a migration that may rise to the level of Attila the Hun's campaigns.  In fact, the drifts are so high, I have a strong suspicion that the pile of snow left by my terrible foe, the snow plow, especially by the mailbox, is housing a family of polar bears, or at least timber wolves (who are wondering, poor dears, when they may expect the caribou to arrive).
You...did say there were caribou here??

At least they are quiet.  By day.

I have learned that we will get rain on Sunday with temperatures in the 'forties, but I have every confidence in the blessings of nature and winter that the temperature will drop down into the sub-zero zones, allowing the wolves and polar bears to practice their ice skating.  The bright side is that I will have a source for financial gain, since I suspect people might pay money to see skating polar bears.  Or not.  It's cold.  However, if they do come to watch, and

they are as obnoxious as some of the folks who have come through here within the past several months, I truly believe that the bears, who are known to be somewhat crusty with pushy humans, will thin the ranks of the cretins and make life much easier for me, over all.  If I can train them and the wolves to scoop litter boxes my life will be enviable. 



The REAL snow queen!
Frida  and the cats can whip them into shape!  (note the pile left by the snow plow, in the back Left of the photo!)

So what are you  celebrating today?  (enjoy them, and enjoy your weekend!)

  1. I'm so sorry you're all freezing there, but your post gave me such a good laugh! And all the pics were fantastic! Why not a polar bear with skates, right? I hope you don't get too much rain/ice over the weekend. Think warm thoughts! lol

  4. When my son was about five, he used an inappropriate word, and when I told him not to, he said, "You said it when you got stuck in the driveway in the pile the snowplow left." So I completely understand your adversion to the snowplow. Sending warm thoughts.

  5. I have a friend that lives on a main road that gets plowed in...I can't even imagine the frustration! We got almost a foot of snow yesterday...the biggest storm for us this winter. You should see how happy the Husky dog that lives across the street was :)

  7. Funny! I never realized polar bears do ice skating. The pic of the bear putting on his skates put a big smile on my face. Love it, Diana!

  8. Oh my!!! I miss snow so much. But, then, I don't much care for the shoveling nor the after effects of driving in it. I would much rather have a day or two of snow and then be done with it. But, alas, that will never happen here. It's been unseasonably warm here in Florida. 80s already. and it's not even spring! I hope that this is not any indication of how our summer is to be. Love your sense of humor about all the snow, though. I hope it warms up and things can get back to some sense of normal for you! Enjoy your weekend!
