In the eye of the beholder

Loveliest of trees... or at least one of them. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood when the trees look like this.

It's not so lovely when the road signs look like this. And this sign was quite readable, compared to the other road signs that we needed to read to reach our destination on Monday morning.

It was the kind of weather that made us decide to take a detour into a Farm and Fleet store and buy Amigo a new pair of boots. These were not inexpensive boots, either. They fit, they're warm, and he can handle them himself. I call it an investment. I hope his feet are done growing for now....

You can see the evidence in the parking lot. The roads were that sloppy, too. My vehicle is so grungy that even my visually impaired teenager remarked, "Mom, your van is a mess."
A snow- and road salt-covered minivan is just not as pretty as a snow-covered tree.

Monday morning, when Rocco saw all the snow-covered trees, he said "Mommy, all the trees are turning into Christmas trees!!" lol

And i know what you mean about parking lots. I almost landed on my arse in the Home Depot parking lot yesterday. Home Depot of all places! You'd think they'd have more than enough salt to keep their parking lots unslippery!

Oh wow! I thought I was jealous of the winter weather, but I've just changed my mind. :)

Is that a hemlock? I don't really know my evergreens well. My Hunny spent his childhood climbing hemlocks in CT, then falling out of them, bumping all the way down on the branches. :)

And to think that THIS was the day I decided to pull myself off the couch and try to run errands on College, Wisconsin and Double-0.
