My Favorite Time of the Year-Winter!

If you have read my blog previously, you will note the title of this post is laced with sarcasm.  If not, read  my letter to Winter and more of my thoughts regarding this wonderful season.

So, I shoveled snow for the second time this winter.  A little bit more than we had the day before Thanksgiving and in mid-December.  Or maybe it just seemed like it.  Because I was out there shoveling the driveway in the dark after a long day.

Do I look happy?
If we have another winter as we did last year, I just don't know what I am going to do.  Maybe stage a sit-in kind of protest.  Wrapped in my quilt.  In front of the fireplace.  Drinking hot toddies.

Here are a couple of pictures of last year's piles. 

I have a confession.  I finally gave in and took advantage of the pile of snow at the end of the driveway.  Our yard slopes down from front to back.  Click here.  I'm a big kid.  And it was right in the middle of the Winter Olympics. 

Sometimes, your better off playing by the rules.  And winter rules when it arrives.  That's why there is a move to a warm climate in my future. 

Stay warm.  Whatever way you can.  Maybe a fire and a hot toddy?
