The beautiful snow

Was that me yesterday that was blathering on about how pretty the snow was? It was?

I may have revised my opinion this afternoon.

Mom had a clinic appointment in Detroit today. I was a little anxious about making the drive as we were supposed to continue getting more snow overnight. Clarence called me shortly after 5:00 AM(!) to tell me his drive to work had taken about an extra half hour. I decided I'd better just stay up, since I was going to get up in just over a half hour anyhow. Have I ever mentioned that I am not a morning person?

By the time the girls and I left home just after 6:30 AM (!), the roads seemed to be wet and slushy, but not overly slippery. Thank God.

We made the trip with Mom incident-free. No big news from the docs, which is always good news, and we were out of there in a reasonable amount of time, which always makes us happy. Mom even fed us lunch when we got back to her house.

Then we came home.

And drove up our hilly, curvy driveway. Which was snow covered. And which contained some small branches which had fallen while we were gone.

The girls got out and moved the branches for me and I attempted to continue driving up the driveway.

You can see how that worked for me.

We ended up shoveling for a bit and I was able to, after several failed attempts, make it up to the garage.

I walked into the house and kissed the non-snow-covered floor.

  1. I know how you feel sis. You know I have a love hate relationship with winter. I loved how the snow looked coming down, not so crazy about walking in it. I would have to say about a 30/70 split on the love hate thing with the 70% weighing heavily on the hate. That goes up to 99% in January.

  2. Oh, but I love looking at the snow! We might get rain but it isn't pretty like SNOW!!

  3. Wow you did get some snow! All of our melted as it fell but when I was in Romeo it was sticking. They got 3 inches.

    Do you mind if I ask where you found your sewing machine? I looked it up online after reading your post and I think I am going to save my pennies for one. I haven't sewn since 7th grade and I wasn't very good but I want to try again. I think the speed control feature is perfect for me : ) Your daughter did a great job on her bag!

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
