They need little black wetsuites and they could be little penguins

Do they slide into the pond? They are so nice - do they make lots of quacking noises.

So you have been shoveling too Two hours east of us got really whalloped. The bad thing is now they are calling for it to warm up and we are going to get rain - maybe we should just leave the garage for now and it would become a skating rink and then a swimming pool in the spring...

I don't really mind the snow - but when it is spread out a bit Give the old bones a bit of a time to recover before the next lot comes...

Aria, that looks like a picture on a card. Hope you have a great holiday and new year and all your wishes come to you like (call) ducks in a row.

Sharon I like that 5 star treatment over at your snowy lodge. Glad to hear cleanup is moving along at a fast pace and your plans will be most welcome and advantageous for your new venture.

Jamie all that shoveling probably makes you happy to look on your botanical sketches. Are you working on a project now through winter?

Hi,

I can finally post online..after the electrician left and was able to plug in the desktop etc..turns out when one tries to blow dry hair, watch tv, and have a portable electric heater all going on at once is not such a smart thing to do!..lesson learned..so the portable heater will be saved as a backup for the Safari instead of our house, and instead, put on more jammies or turn on the central heater to heat up our bedroom that faces north..
Aria, those call ducks are soooo cute, but I feel for their little feet on that snow!

Sharon, Carol, Paula and all Sisters: We have a di-icer on our Pond that keeps a small section open. The Call Ducks like to take a bath daily. They love the water...hate the snow.

We do need to shovel a path. They go in and out daily. We do not leave them out at night. Sometimes they slide on the SNOW...do not want to walk on the snow. They are a delight and we do enjoy them. They do quack..when they are out of food, whey people drive in our driveway...almost when they "have something to say". Of course they always talk to each other.

Husband Floyd built the Duck Barn and the pond. And the Wreath is one of our creations. It has bird lights, Cardinals, and Pine Cones. The Snow covers most of it. Need some coffee and one of my cookies. ENJOY

Hey Jamie, great snowfall there! Did the kids get a snowday yet?

We didn't get much just around 8 inches or so, but its been fun with the sleds.

Aria your cookies look great! I'm starting a batch of New Years Waffle Cookies, they are thin oval shaped butter cookies with grid patterns, like the Jules Destrooper waffle cookies, usually Belgians (Flemish) give them out at New Years but the Americanized ones in Michigan give them out at Christmas.


Sharon, I love your rv garage plan!! Oh that is going to be sweet I am so happy for you and Peter!! That cedar root is cool in the heron's beak! Too funny...glad it wasn't an arctic snake....

North Pole -- this is New England calling -- we have a problem...

The elves have been using the Bambi to store Christmas surprises this year. I went out there today after shopping to tuck a few more away and what to my wondering eyes did appear? -- the Bambi door is frozen shut!!!! There is ice all over and around the door, on the hinges, everywhere. Do you think warming it up with a hairdryer will get it to budge without hurting anything? It's not locked, and the door handle is not frozen, it's just sealed all around with ice.

Can you put a portable heater near it, otherwise it would seem like you would have a long time standing there with the hair dryer. I wonder if you could make some sort of foil shield to prevent all the heat from rising. Can you set a table out there or stack boxes to raise or lower the height? What would happen to an electric blanket would you get zapped in outdoor use? Extra warm water poured on?? However can you raise the temperature around the door, don't suppose the sun is shining and you could use a reflector? How about light bulbs or a lamp? Kill two birds with one stone and put a nice Xmas flood light on it. Best call Santa 911, this could be serious!

Jamie - for a cheap fix - try winter windsheild washer in a spray bottle....spray around all the seams some will soak in just enough to breakup/ melt the ice.

If you don't have any of that - the lock deicer stuff will work as well - once you get your door open wipe around it with warm soapy water to take any of the deicer residue away.

The hairdryer would also do fine and will not hurt your coating or melt any gaskets or seals - just the ice - it is not a paint stripper or all of us would be walking around with bald heads with our hair all singed off

As far as a new hiding place we have lots of space - I will take reall good care of them

2 great flicks if you are talking Robin Williams and Lucille Ball respectively, and I would love some popcorn! Have you seen Lost in America? We like that one too.

With my infernal sweet tooth, I love the caramel corn, especially that with pecans too. Why does sweet have to be so bad for us????? ~G Jamie, have you broken into the Bambi yet? I think pots of warm water poured over the door would be the most harm-free solution. I've gotten into frozen car doors many times with a pan of warm water. Keep us posted...

Hi G,

I admit I have a sweet tooth too!..especially for carmel corn..there used to be a Fox theatre here in Sacramento, and before going in, I always tried to buy boxed carmel corn called Karmel Korn..the best!!!..and I also like Cracker Jacks..anyone for some of that too?

I like the standard butter Pop Corn - theatre kind

Codybear all those sweeties sound so sweet I have not had any time to bake or make anything special for this Christmas - think it just might come and go without even noticing at this rate

Just in now- got the snowblower fixed with a new belt and I cleared the drive while Peter was out playing hockey.

It is still snowing here has been all day - left another 6 inches on the drive - and not sure what we will see in the morning. They are callilng for rain -but have only seen the white stuff. However it has gone very mild.

It is very pretty with all the snow - we have a metal roof and the snow usually falls off - but for some reason it is staying on and now has formed a few ice dams - we will have to get up there and drop those icicles - they are very dangerous and could impale the girls if under them when they fall.

You sound like the food elves

We had a very dry fall and the farmers were concerned - now if this snow rate keeps up for both January and February we are going to have terrible floods in the spring if it is a quick thaw.

Here is a closer shot of the icicles......and we are foregoing a tree this year - but we look out at this one from the sun room. The snow is just too deep to go back too far to cut one down - I might take a walk up along the side of the road maybe and see.

Thanks for all your suggestions. The Elves decided to go with the easiest solution first -- the winter windshield washer in a spray bottle -- and it worked! The Christmas bundle of goodies is saved! I should've know our Canadian member would pull through on this one. She's probably an elf in disguise, with lots of experience dealing with gifts locked behind frozen doors.

I can't believe how much ice and snow is on that trailer now. We're getting more this morning and there's already another 6-7" on top already. I'll get a picture later today, when it's supposed to stop. (must....believe.... snow... will....stop...someday). So far no closed schools in our winter-hardy town though. Just a few delayed starts. A bummer for the kids.

Anybody got a spare cookie and some cocoa today for a weary snow shoveler who can't seem to get any baking in edgewise?

-J
