Aint no sunshine.

I think we’ve had 2 days of sun since we moved into the house. Considering that Bear and I have adjustment issues, the lack of sunlight is not helpful at all. (We also traded in our car for a new one with cargo space. Bear named her Victoria. It fits.) Since I don’t have pictures of the last week of rain/snow/hail, I’ll show you pictures that we took almost exactly two weeks ago.

That’s our backyard in the morning. That’s not how it looks this morning because this morning while we did have some snow, it’s been more of the rain/snow/hail variety and it’s been warmer (45 degrees right now). There’s dirt and plants and rocks and leaves from 4-5 months ago. Amazingly similar though is the lack of sunlight and the general gloominess.

This was in the evening. I think we had about 10″ of snow in our front yard. We shoveled the front walkway and a decent chunk of the driveway. (Those are Bear’s footprints btw. He was carrying something from the car and getting the shovel.)

Also, to end this on a note that isn’t sharing the gloom that has been over New England the last two weeks, I’m going to show you the results of Bear’s paranoia coupled with my determination.

This is what happens when I am determined to go up into the attic and Bear has worked himself into an honest to goodness tizzy about insulation and asbestos. Our house was built in ’55 and has had renovations done since then. Plenty of people have clearly been up in that attic. I told Bear not to worry about the asbestos and that I was going up in that attic. I do have to say, at least I wasn’t itchy from the insulation afterwards.
