Its been awhile since I wrote anything. Life has been busy and we've both been sick with winter colds. We were gone for a week in Auburn, WA moving Dan's mom from a rehab/nursing home place to assisted living. That was some back breaking work on the first day because it was just Dan and I moving stuff from her storage unit into the rental truck. Thank goodness Dan's daughter Audrey and 2 of his grands came the next day to help us. What a relief that was for both of us. I little think we pretty well got her set up. I'm home now and getting over my first cold in about 3 years. The good old head cold. GRRRRR........Dan had to return to Auburn to take his mom to a doctor appointment and he'll be gone a couple of days..........Its just been crappy weather here. Rain and snow and cold, cold, cold. Its raining so hard right now as I write this, that we could soap up our rig and let the rain water rinse it. The ground is turning to mush from all the snow and rain. Its SO soggy we might actually "settle" a little on the boards that we're parked on. No joke. When Dan gets back hes gotta trouble shoot our fridge. We've never had anything go wrong with it in all the 11 years we've been living in our rig. It doesn't cool like it should. We're hoping it just needs some extra maintenance. He keeps up with regular maintenance on our fridge, furnace, and hot water heater. Guess we'll see. And life goes on.................

I haven't been taking too many pictures. We love this little squirrel, a tiny brown squirrel, that was hanging out on the apple tree. He was actually quite friendly and VERY loud.

Here is the snow that we have now that is finally melting. We got about 6 to 8", depending on where we were standing in the yard.

Bella wasn't happy about it
Here are some pictures from around the yard. My pictures are not in order, so Dan and Bella are in the middle of my scenery pictures.

We finally got Bella to come outside in the snow as you will see in some pictures below.

The back steps on our rig
Bella looking out deciding if she wants to attempt going out.
As you can see, Dan swept the snow off the steps and she ventured out.
Looking out the garage window trying to make that decision of going any farther.
She finally got brave
This was something new to her sinking into the snow as she tried to navigate

She didn't last very long outside
My sister's dog Max came outside for a few minutes too. He didn't last as long as Bella. I think his belly and little winkie got cold.

Hopefully you won't need to remain in the cold North next winter.
Bella was like a child experiencing snow for the first time.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
