I took this photo a week ago on Friday. We had taken the dogs for a walk and then put them in the backyard to play since it was so nice out. I ran to the store for groceries and got fried chicken and fresh bagels in the deli section for our lunch. This has become a nearly weekly ritual with the dogs; some weeks we eat outside under the pergola and then we hurry indoors as its too cold to linger. But last week, we enjoyed staying outside for a bit. It was so nice out. In the photo above, I am reclined in the chair and Brutus is lying on my lap. Sweet boy.
Then it started snowing on Saturday and it's been very snowy ever since. We did get a break from additional snow on Tuesday and Wednesday, but it's been snowing on and off since Thursday.

No picnic under the pergola today.
The big, overgrown evergreen in the front of the house is rather droopy.
I love the brilliant blue sky peeking through the pergola.
And even more, I like the shadows the snow covered pergola makes.
In Colorado, there is a saying about the weather: "If you don't like the weather,,, just wait 15 minutes. It will change!"
