A week left in this month then it will be the shortest month of the year. It means that we are getting that much closer to Spring. The snow is melting and the ground is getting so soft. It is so squishy under foot. You wonder if you are going to sink in and the potholes are unreal.
I am hoping that it warms up some tomorrow. I think this winter has been worse then the ones that we had in the past.
Two trips to the city this next week so I will only be working three days. I can't blame hubby for both of them because one of the appointments is mine. I should have done it in December but the weather was just to bad.
We are babysitting this weekend all three of the boys at once. My oldest grandson said that he would help grandma with the younger two. I don't think I will have any problem because they play really good together and they haven't seen each other since Christmas Eve.
Some of our C-130's have been flying supplies into Haiti to help with the relief. I know they can land those planes on very short runways and different places. I have watched them land and take off on very short distance on the runway. We never cease to tell our guys how much they are appreciated for all that they are doing for us. The snow blower that they use to clear the runways is really something. It has like a big brush on the front of it and can really throw the snow. We watch it in action one weekend while we were eating breakfast at the restaurant which is located at the airport. You just never know what kind of planes you will see there.
Back to embroidering for a while before I call it a day. Take care.

Hope you had fun with the grand kids, I bet they love staying with you :)
This winter here in S.Ontario has not even felt like a winter (yet), not much snow at all, which is unusual for us. I would love Spring but I still feel like there will be more snow.
