Seventy Some Odd Minutes...


That's how long it took me to shovel the driveway and sidewalks just now. Are you kidding me? Usually Jeff does all the shoveling, but today, I had nothing but time. So, I paraded on out there with my pretty little scarf and my fashionable orange gloves to do a little shoveling.

Ok. The lower back felt it first. Then my arms. I got the giggles. I hurt myself several times. It was still snowing and covering up my hard work! I think the neighbor man down the way was very entertained. I pretended not to see him.

After awhile, I was in the rhythm. My muscles felt warm and didn't hurt anymore. I took off my scarf. I hummed. I did a good job!

Now, when Jeff arrives home, he will see a huge snow bank that he will have to break through to get onto the driveway. Oops. I think I should leave snow shoveling to Jeff. I am much better at sitting by the fire with a good book. I do that INCREDIBLY well!
