Now, maybe you don't know that I really, really, really dislike winter but it's not that I hate snow. I hate the shorter days. So, I'm tickled by our first official snow storm.
Anyone wanna come for a BBQ?
Yep, that's our backyard table and chairs - those two things on the right are Bob's Pepsi and Coke coolers. AND it's still snowing.
I had to take the pictures in the dark because Bob is taking the camera with him tomorrow for three days.
Since the storm is supposed to last well into tomorrow I made stew - so I'm set for the next few days.
Even so, I'm not afraid to drive in the snow at all so I'm one of those people who doesn't think twice about running out to the store. In fact, Bob and I celebrated Valentine's Day today because he leaves by train to New York City on business (lucky guy - course I would want to go for more than one day). Since I'm a procrastinator, I had to go out and get a few gift cards and chocolate for Bob, some groceries and uh, the bookstore. Snow schmow.
I bought some books online last night because I'm desperate for something light and frothy and my TBR pile looks like it's all about the drama. Ooops. Still, my desperation took me to the big bookstore today and I bought NOTHING! It hurt to walk out the door without buying anything but I was just lost in the aisles. Not a good feeling.
I'll save the list of books I bought for when they arrive.
Yeah, I lied and shouldn't be posting but c'mon, I had to post my fun snow pics!! They make me happy!
Dang! I almost forgot! I managed to get our gigantic snow blower out and started and got the drive way cleared out! I did it for Bob as kind of a Valentine's gift and I figured, hey, what would be sexier for a man than seeing his driveway all cleared out without him having to move.
Yeah, I got his number.
Bob, however, does love his toys and kind of hovered as he got home when I was only half done the driveway. I insisted he go in and relax but he stayed out and shoveled out the walkway. I went and did a neighbours driveway ( I didn't know they had a blower) thinking I could be helpful. By the time I was done, I stank of gasoline and exhaust (Bob wasn't even near the machine and he stank of it also) and my thighs were so cold you could have pushed a straight pin into them and I wouldn't have felt it!
I figure getting out in the fresh (and I mean fresh) air is the kind of stuff my body needs and it definitely kept my energy high for the day and now I'm exhausted so I'll be heading to be soon and yeah, it's 4 am.
The next three days are going to be all about me!
Okay, that's normal but since I'm going to be alone, it's REALLY going to be all about ME!!!
