This is what we’ve been up to today – eight (or so) new inches.
The front yard:
And of course, the dog:
The snow stopped falling around 2 pm, and I headed outside to start shoveling the driveway. I had barely gotten the shovel wet when my snowblower-yielding neighbor strolled on over and took care of business, for the third time this season. One day he did it and I didn’t know until I looked outside! I call him my snowblower fairy. Anyway, he cleared the driveway in about 10 minutes, when it would have taken me probably an hour or more. I love having neighbors!
Krystal says she is feeling much better, and the fever seems to have dissipated. Which is good, since she and I have a full day planned tomorrow; she and I are both off from work/school and she’s been keeping a list of things she wants to do. I did tell her we probably wouldn’t be able to do everything, but if we had a list to look at, we could be sure to do some things she really wants to do. One must do is to make a platoon of snowman pretzels for her birthday at school, but some other activities on her list are: shopping (she has received several gift cards for Christmas/birthday that are burning a hole in her pocket), ice skating, a manicure (yeah, right!), and three different movie titles (maybe we’ll pick one). I’m looking forward to some one-on-one time with her.
