In between sessions with Zoey and shoveling snow I did get a start on quilting the background, beginning with what is furthest back...Some low growing pines. They really look odd here but there is a lot more in the foreground so I am only doing what will partially show and remember, the owl will sit in the middle.
Last night we got a foot of snow with high winds making it drift to 5 feet in some areas. This is my view early this morning when I opened the blinds in the dining room.
Then I moved on to the kitchen and saw this.
The birds were already out trying to get something to eat after a horrible night of howling wind.
Then it was time to put on the boots and get out there to shovel a path for the dogs so they could get out . I had so much snow on the deck already I had to shovel over to the steps and dump it off the edge.
In the meantime Zoey is becoming more comfortable and used to the noises in her "safe room".
She played and played with me this morning while we waited for Bob to finish snowblowing down at our store.
She loves to burrow under the covers and peak out at you. I think she is going to be quite a stinker once she has the run of the house.
