I almost forgot it's Thursday! March 7, 2019

Things that I almost forgot to share with you today!
I love fastnachts!
 Fastnachts are donuts the Pennsylvania Dutch make to celebrate Fat Tuesday.  On Tuesday,  I walked Scout early in the morning.  It was 23 degrees with a windchill of 5.  I was surprised to see an elderly lady we know carrying a basket.  I asked her if she needed help,  but she declined my offer.  She was delivering fastnachts she had  made at dawn to the neighbors.  That counts for reason #472 as to why I love my neighborhood!

I like the snowglobe effect.
It doesn't happen often but sometimes when it is snowing, the boughs of the cedar and the aborvitae  bend with the weight of the snow and the patio doesn't get snowed on much at all.  Scout and I went out the night it snowed and it was like watching the storm from the inside of a snowglobe!

 I liked the pretty sky the next day!

Last week, Scout's graduation from obedience school was postponed due to storms.  Hopefully we will be able to celebrate with all her dog friends on Saturday!

Speaking of dog friends, she had a wonderful romp on Sunday with Eddie a dog a few streets away!  He is one of the few dogs we know who is about her age and they had a blast together!

Have a wonderful week!

Hi Michele! Oh, it looks like Scout had a great romp with a friend. The trees look SO very pretty all covered in snow, don't they. It almost takes your breath away. We have Paczkis around our area, in both SE Wisconsin and the Chicago area. I've never had a homemade one but I imagine they would be delicious and very similar to your fastnachts for Fat Tuesday. Happy Thursday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

Your snow is beautiful! We're cold here but no pretty snow. It's fun to see Scout romping around with his friends! Our dogs love playing with us in the snow at my mother's when we go out sledding.

Happy Fastnacht Day! What a sweet neighbor! I love your pretty snow photos, too. The day after a snow when sun and blue sky come back is always beautiful.

Beautiful pictures. I love snow on the trees. And what's more fun than dogs playing in the snow!

I like your snow photos! And what fun that your neighbor delivers fastnachts - they sound delicious.

Oh my gosh, where do you live? I'm in York. I love that people keep up the old traditions!

Beautiful snow photos, Cute pups at play. Fastnatchts sound like a yummy way to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. I enjoyed simple pancakes as I do not have such a lovely neighbor. Thank you for sharing I Like Thursday with me ... :) Pat
