This February had loads of paperwork, as usual. Fortunately for me, Valentine’s Day came right after I finished my taxes. Time for yummy loot!
We usually buy Valentine’s Day candy only after it has gone on sale, so, perfect timing.
What differs from previous years is that I got my tax stuff figured out by mid-month. I’m very pleased by the achievement and have made copious notes to make the process as fast in the future. (I hope!)
Weatherwise, this February was oddly low-snow. We did get a number snowfalls, but they were relatively few and far between. In the very beginning of the month, we had a load of light, fluffy snow, with sun and high winds the following day. The powdery snow fell off the trees in huge, gorgeous, transparent curtains, almost like mist.
My photo doesn’t do it justice at all; it was magnificent!
Towards the mid-month, we had another layer. Afterwards, in the wee hours of the morning, the neighborhood turkeys apparently had places to be:
So many different paths all over! There’s also at least one set of fox tracks there. And speaking of foxes, one Saturday, a bright and glorious morning, one came round to check around the bird feeder in our neighbor’s back yard.
It seems that spring is early this year – and you get no complaints from me. Although I could do with less pollen this early in the year…
Sadly, the latter half of February brought two deaths in Husband’s extended family, which cast a pall on otherwise sunny days.
I hope your year is still off to a good start.
