This little scottie dog has come to live with me all the way from the house above in Scotland. I've called him Mac in memory of my mom who's maiden name was McInnes.
No wonder it took him two months to get here, he had to battle his way through all that snow above to get to my house in Canada!!
Thanks so much to Ali at Less Equals More who sent him to me. He's a little brooch and she hand makes them from felted tartan from vintage kilts!!

I went out to start shovelling the snow. There was at least 8" on the driveway! I managed to get one shovel width down to the road. I was standing there taking a breather, thinking this is going to take me several hours to get this done. A fire truck came slowly down the street. I smiled and waved at them. A firefighter stuck his head out of the window and asked if I'd like some help. I said I would really appreciate that. Five firefighters came out of the truck with snow shovels. They had the driveway cleared in five minutes. Believe me, that act of kindness made my day!! Love those firefighters!!!!
It's still snowing really hard so I'll be out there again in a couple of hours, but at least I won't have another 8" to deal with, all in one go-I hope!!

Snow, snow and more snow!!!
In the last 10 days we've had 2 big dumps of snow. 6" and 7". Starting this afternoon and continuing until Friday we are expecting another 16"!! We are running out of places to put it!
