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 dilemma...my 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!!!!!!

So many fun pics! Love the new look of the blog! Very appropriate and very cute! Great job on figuring out the snow blower. Definitely don't miss the snow removal part of snow. ;-p

Way to go mom on the snow blowing!!!!!! I disagree, you are in great shape, you just used different muscles doing that (I thought the same thing after playing broom ball, I was so sore)! Love, love, love the new design you did awesome (I have to go find the e-mail I sent you so I can remember;0)! Also, the pics are SO good!

Dad said it doesn't surprise him at all that you did the snow blowing. He said he knew you could do it.
Loved all the picture's! We have been gone so long and they are changing so much we have to figure out who is who. Loved the new headline's.

Great to see the new post. It was fun to see the new look as well. Of course you were able to snowblow, & I agree with Nikki, your not out of shape just different muscles.
