Tilt-a-Whirl-Topsy-Turvy-Snowy-Sunday Selfie

Yup, its tilt-a-whirl here, not just me, but the weather, too...all mixed up. The season says Spring on the calendar, but when I look outside its more like January, at least it was yesterday morning.
Growlmy was at work on Friday evening, and when she drove back home it took a longtime, she had to 'crawl' home, it was slippery on the roads and whiteout conditions, she could hardly see where she was going. At least she didn't meet up with any deer, sometimes they are all over the roads when she comes home.
When I got up on Saturday morning, there was about 5 inches of snow on my back porch steps. Sheesh...I have a hard enough time on stairs right now, snow and ice don't help...but I was in need of getting out I went even befur growlmy could clear them off...and, well she decided it warranted some pictures. No privacy here folks.

Saturday after the storm was over, the sun came out for a time, and melted a lot of the snow...and with growlmy;s help, the sidewalk and driveway were once again all clean and bare...but this morning, the snow and sleet had resumed. Sheesh. It was 28F. Brrr! Now in the late afternoon, its raining...ugh.
On Tuesday growlmy has to do a 120 mile round trip, she hopes the weather will be quiet and cooperative:)
We all hope that on the 28th and 29th, the weather will be nice and pleasant, that is when unfurbro the younger will be graduating from Grad school...who wants to watch that all shivering and wearing  snow boots?
Boss-boy said he still has his snow tires on...OMD! Who told him it was prudent to dawdle with that aspect of his car maintenance?? BOL!

With regards to my wobbly tilt-a-whirl self, well, slowly I am getting better, thanks for all the POTP. At least I can keep my noms down, and I am going into the kitchen to beg morsels when growlmy is fixing meals there...I just love those crunchy salad items, BOL!
Growlmy isn't leashing to guide me down the steps to the grass outside anymore, though the stairs in the house are still blocked off.
She giggled when she saw the tracks I made in the snow..they are all crooked, I guess I would fail a sobriety straight line walk if  a policeman wanted to know if I was inebriated, BOL! But I am interested in the goings on in my yard, and went way to the back to sniff where those pesky tree rats were scurrying about. Grrr.

All my lab work came back perfectly normal, so that at least is great news to know. That means I can have the dental...way later I hope, BOL!

Backyard, April 9, 2016

Side yard, April 9, 2016. Growlmy's van has less snow than pawppy's car, cause she drove home about halfway through the storm...The strong winds blew off a lot of snow from our weeping cherry tree.
*My* wood pile...the tree rats love to tease me from the top of this pile...Grrr.
Very cold daffies and bluebells; they were hoping to show off their pretty blooms, not buried in deep snow.
This is the third time this brave mini daffie has been covered in a snowy blanket.
Oh, NO! Snow:(
Well, if I squint enough, maybe I can be brave and go down these snowy steps...
Off I go...
A bit wobbly...

Almost there...
I made it!

Sniffing to find some grass...

My pawprint.
And there is growlmy's boot-print beside mine!

This snow is cold...
And deep...
But I am doing fine, growlmy!

See, I got all the way ovfur to my fence to do well, you know, BOL!

My stance is wide to keep my balance better...

    1. Those wobblies are slowly getting better, growlmy can see it in how I act...and I do eat better again, now.
      She only wishes i would try to do things like running out the door or down the steps at a slower pace...

    1. BOL! Your LadyMum must be of the same vintage as mine:) (From the mid 1950's)
      Hamilton driving is a nightmare according to growlmy..she prefers Toronto, there are too may one way streets in Hammytown. Now growlmy gets lost in Brampton too...where she went to highschool...and London is also strange to her now, after being gone from there ovfur 28 years...

      I am doing some better...thanks!

  7. I am glad you are feeling better and that your blood work was good. Sorry I chuckled a little that you can't walk a straight line :) I hope your Meowmy has a safe trip tomorrow.

    1. Nope, I still cannot walk a straight line, maybe i nevfur will anymore...and the stairs are still a problem...sigh...if only I would take them slower...growlmy is wishful thinking, cause I am a Jack Russell Terrier, BOL!

      Growlmy had a great road trip.

  9. We're glad you are doing better and hope you will soon be through this. Can't be any fun to wobble.

    1. I am getting used to the wobbly gait, but I need to slow my speed from 5th gear to maybe second...
