Still Winter

View out the patio door,one quarter of the way up the door! Yesterday was a first for me...we got a major snow storm, and our driveway was almost impossible to drive on, it needed to be blown out. There in lied the husband had been gone working shows;and would be getting home late and leaving again early the next morning; and our son has been putting in very, very long hours, and our daughter in law is pregnant...that left a soon to be 50 yr old, very able person to blow it out. That would be me! Problem, didn't know how to use the snow blower, solution, have husband walk me through it over the phone. Success on the instructions, got it out of the garage and running! This really is a tribute to all of those people who blow snow every winter, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! It is NOT an easy task. My kind husband in my defense says that because of all the ice build up we have on our driveway is why it was so hard to blow, but I do believe I am Not in that great of shape. He doesn't hurt when he blows the snow like I did when I came in. But anyway, thankful for the snowblower, even though it was a chore, it is finished. Hopefully for the last time this winter!!!!!!!

Here are some pics of what we have been doing since the last post, busy with wonderful grandbabies!!!!!!
