It's hard to believe that this was only a week ago - after our last run in with Mother Nature ... look at that scowl on the old truck. The way the snow was piled up on the hood it looks ornery!
The poor little junco's found their way north again ... only to get snowed on. When Dear Hubby was shoveling the sidewalk he pushed it back beyond the edges and they were all over scratching and digging in the grass.

Now ... a week later ~ and some warmer weather ... I can FINALLY see my lawn. Happy dance... happy dance.
I'm making giant pileated woodpeckers out of plywood to hang up high in the trees. Here's my inspiration:
I told the girls I was making two for myself and they both wanted one. Then I decided to make one for Mom to hang over at the farm ... and I figured I better make a couple extras right away while I had the time and paints out.
One side is painted and propped up to dry in front of the fan. Hopefully, tonight I can flip them over and get the other side painted. These little buggers are taking some time as I have to double coat them and can only do one color at a time. They stand about 3 1/2 feet tall.

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
