Just In...


...from shovelling through to the end of my back shed, and forward, 'round the side of the house to the front, down the front walk, up J&E's front walk (they seem to be away), across their deck to their back door, down their back steps and down their back walk.  Half an hour of intense aerobics in the cold (-22C with wind chill).  Am I nuts?  Well...it's a case of reciprocal service.  J, when he's home, has no hesitation in using his snow-blower to blow out my walk.  I don't have a blower, so I did the best I could to at least start the process for him, following this first snowstorm of the Winter of 2010-2011.

Plus...

I have to get down to the Post Office and the Library this afternoon to pick up mail and books that await me -- and to keep myself from a hefty dose of Cabin Fever.  I've been indoors since Monday -- which has been very good for my Christmas knitting, my commissioned knitting, and my quilting...but sometimes even an Introvert (ISTJ) needs to chat a bit with others, face to face, right?  :-)

Maybe we should think about trading houses for a little while? I would love to see that much snow and be stuck at home in my studio for a few days! The shoveling I'm not as sure about....:) Here it is sunny and mid 60's.

First time ever I haven't been envious of your beautiful white snow. Need to be able to drive today.

And just think how virtuous you can feel. I hope you had chocolate as a reward - or grilled cheese or something else from the comfort section of your kitchen.

Knit on!

Oh! today's word verification is Joy a Kick! cute, huh?
