Red+Blue+White=Happy Senior Mom and Sandwich Generation Granny Nanny with Thoughts of Gardening Amidst the Snow

It was the day after another major snowstorm with more on the way. But on Friday, this Sandwich Generation granny nanny and her senior mom were in seventh heaven because THE SUN WAS OUT. The temps didn't go above 16 but that didn't stop us!

 

The streets were fairly clear but getting there was the tough part for my senior mom - To the rescue - the Sandwich Generation Granny Nanny who is also caring for the elderly parents - ta da

 

We bundled up, mushed our way through the snow to the cleared off street, and took a bracing walk around the block. I even managed to snap some lovely shots with my easy to use digital camera (good thing it IS so easy to use as wearing gloves does make it all a bit trickier).

 

This Sandwich Generation granny nanny is so glad to see those blue skies in the midst of winter snow storms

 

We checked the mail – don't you love the color of red against the black and white!

 

Christmas may be over for the Sandwich Generation but the white snow just keeps coming - love the red against the black and white - cheers my granny nanny heart

 

We walked safely around the block on the street (thank you again to our wonderful city workers who keep our streets clear!) And we thoroughly enjoyed this lonely little red fire hydrant all alone and partially buried – isn't it cute like that – and don't you love that bright red against the white!

 

My senior mom and I had a good time laughing at this cute RED fire hydrant - gardening in the snow perhaps

 

 

My senior mom was so thrilled to get out of the house. She enjoyed the walk thoroughly and we had fun discussing our spring boomer and senior gardening plans. Right now, she's just enjoying reading her seed catalogs from Burpee icon and Burgess Seed & Plant Company and feeding the handful of Kentucky birds that come to visit. And we both enjoyed the lovely trees and bushes we spied on our walk. Look at the blue shadows in this photo –

 

My aging parents and I love the the color of the tree shadows in this photo I took with my easy to use digital camera

  1. Glad you enjoyed your walk through the snow! Beautiful photos!


  2. When the sun is out, the cold doesn’t feel so bad, does it? I love going for a walk after a big snow. It’s so quiet. Except for the sound of snowblowers and shovels scraping!
    Happy REDnesday!

  3. Lovely photos! I did the same thing yesterday, even though it was 8F out. I walked down to our mailbox, which is almost 1/4 mile from the house.


  4. Snow makes for some beautiful sights, but still can be dangerous. Glad you had nice, safe walk in it. It looks so soft and fluffy.


  5. Great pics and what a great attitude-enjoy:@)


  6. You never know what you are going to find when you take a walk through the snow. Love, love, love the fireplug…and the red flag for the mail box. This is such a clever post.


  7. That is alot of snow. It’s really pretty though-we don’t get much here in Texas, so I think I’ll enjoy yours!


  8. getting all bundled up and taking a walk in the sunlight after a fresh blanket of snow is so peaceful and magical. Of course, coming back in and getting a cup of hot tea and looking at the seed catalogs is a perfect way to spend the day!


  9. WOW Sue, I thought our mailbox was far out – at the end of the drive LOL. It’s like my stairs, though – good exercise. 🙂 Thanks for a fun Rednesday 🙂


  10. Hi Susan, Ain’t it crazy! Especially for me having lifted the first 50 years of my life where snow was downright rare! 🙂


  11. Hi Carol – we didn’t even have any snowblowers around, so it was very nice and peaceful. 🙂


  12. Hi LaVoice, you aren’t kidding about the dangerous part. I had one arm linked to my senior mom and her arm the whole time. And we both had our cell phones, just in case. 🙂


  13. Hi Genie, that red fire hydrant makes me giggle every time I see it. 🙂


  14. Enjoy away, Leslie! I used to do that when I didn’t live in snow country. It’s fun, isn’t it. 🙂


  15. Very true, Diann. My senior mom LOVES her gardening magazines, that’s for sure! 😉


  16. Glad you enjoyed your walk. You got some lovely shots.
