Saturday

I feel like a lost the week! We had snow off and on all week. Just as it began to melt, it would come down in buckets! It looks like we will have a couple more days of this during the week next week but mostly rain for the weekend. Yay! It’s nice to be out of the freezing zone, too. Although we didn’t get a lot, this area (Portland Oregon) is not prepared for snow because we don’t get it very often. Usually (before global warming caused all of the recent changes in our weather patterns) we would get one day of light snow per yer, if that. Now we get several days of heavy snow each year. Last year we¬† were basically snowed in for six consecutive days then again a couple more times for just a couple of days. That’s what happens when your area is not equipped with snow plows or other snow clearing equipment and you get dumped on. That’s also what happens when people don’t have snow tires because “it never snows enough” to justify the high cost. So instead, most people either stay in and complain about it or they get in their cars and end up causing collisions because of their inexperience and lack of preparation. Some end up causing an emergency when they become stranded in their cars without supplies. Some park their cars and walk away from them, causing a huge problem because traffic gets blocked by the parked cars! Me? I stay home. Nice and warm. I am only concerned about the traffic conditions out there as it relates to my daughters who have to drive in it for work, usually. So that was the week here.

There are some cute Spencer stories to share but I will save those for other posts. I just now got called to babysit! She gave me a whole hour’s notice! That’s because I told her I won’t babysit without advance notice anymore. So I got an hour notice! And I haven’t seen the kids today so it’s okay.

I’ll leave you with this neat picture I took of some tulips I bought for myself last week. I never buy flowers for myself but I was tempted and I went ahead! I posted this picture on Instagram this past week but last night I put it through the Prisma App filters and got this really vibrant picture which I think I am going to have printed as blank cards to use for stationery! What do you think?
