So I woke up to two new inches of snow this morning. That was a real treat to say the least! I guess the only good things about it (and this is pushing me to the extreme to even attempt to be positive about this crappy snow) is that it is now partly sunny and the snow is melting very rapidly. However, the forecast predicts MORE wonderful snow over the next three days. I guess local folklore states that this winter fits into the every 15-20 year cycle of snow up the wazoo! Figures, it would have to cycle through when I was living here. I hope we aren't here for the next cycle.
My sis-in-law is just leaving after having spent three days with us. What a blessing to have family close. Her and my wife had a great time working on baby shower invites for another sister and her two little girls had a great time with my kids. We wish she should have stayed another day. However, she did make the comment on her way out, as I had thanked her for coming and was teasing her about "being that way and just leaving" and she smartly replied, "At least I COME to visit! Oh!!! Snap..." Just goes to show you...
The snow made it really fun to drive around town this morning. I ended up going to get our food order from a neighbor who sells Alison's Pantry and to the post office. On the way back from the post office, I noticed that the older couple that cleans and maintains the public library were out battling the snow. I came home, got my snow shovel and headed back. I have asked to help many times in the past, but was always shooed away. Today, however, I didn't even ask, I just got out with my shovel and started shoveling. That was nice. I had a great visit with them as well. My oldest son walked down as well (we live a block away) and helped out as did two high school boys who were walking by. What a great way to start the day.
As I look at what is left of my Saturday, I am thankful that I was able to get all my planning and copying for the next week done yesterday. Last night I read a good portion of my college assigned reading, and this morning I have spent a great deal of time transferring all the photos from the 17 CD's my wife received for Christmas from her grandmother (father's mother). That took a while, but now my wife can access them, use them, and enjoy looking at them.
Well, I still have about 80 pages of textbook to read, research to do, and a HUGE portfolio to start on (it will take most of the next 1 and 1/2 years to complete- BLAH!). So, I guess I should quit playing around on here and get on with it.
Just goes to show you....what? :) Ha ha thanks for letting me come stay it was fun, and it would have been nice to stay another day, but I suppose responsibility calls. Thanks again!ReplyDelete
