snow pictures :-(

From December and I thought it was high then.

 My snow measurement and as you can see it's pretty deep in my backyard with more to come tomorrow. A snow advisory just issued until Monday....they just plowed my street today and my guy has been to do my drive twice already. I'm staying home until Monday when I am forced to go out for an appointment.
 Fascinated by all the icicles. These are mine but both of my neighbors have far outdid me...below my neighbor in the back. The guy next door has an icicle almost to the ground.
 These pictures were all taken through my window and I know that they are pretty bad.
 I think that decorative flag says "let it snow" what fool put that

Cobalt blue eye wash cup

Treasured Things
This is a cobalt blue eye wash cup, one of my favorite collectables. My grandfather had very pale blue eyes which apparently were easily irritated. He used this cup to rinse his eyes out with boric acid. I can still picture him getting it out of a kitchen cupboard and I would watch, spellbound,by this eye washing procedure.  I don't know how I got this as when the house was sold I really got nothing of thiers. My Dad took the much prized clock which I then inherited.....will have to post a picture of it. Some little things can have so many memories. You know both of my grandfathers had blue did we all get brown eyes?

The Marsh at Lake Erie

If they ever paint this old shed I will be devastated.
 The marsh
 Could this be a muskrat lodge?
 Not a good picture but this heron kept flying over
 Part of our trail (COD)
 I love this tree...will make an effort to find out what it is.
Swans swimming and feeding at the lake.

Trying to find something to keep me busy!

 Searching all over the house for somethings to photograph......I'm running out of subjects. Wish that my grandkids were still little....I would love to hover over them with my camera.
