Good morning everyone! I’m coming to you this morning from the depths of a great deal of snow. We are hopefully just coming out of a blizzard here. It has been awful. The roads are a nightmare and the side streets and alleys are impassable for the most part.
It started Friday night and just didn’t quit- total we will probably have about 2 feet but the drifts are upwards of 4 feet or more. I had some fun early Saturday morning at about 2 am when I took Sammy out. First the back door was snowed in and I had to push that open and then I couldn’t even find the steps down. They were completely snowed in and consequently I slipped on the last one – I didn’t completely fall thank God as I had Sam in my arms but I slipped enough to pull all the muscles in my back and ribcage.
So there I am at 2 am trying to shovel a path for Sam to do his business. Then again at 7, then again at about 9 am I am shoveling a path for my dog. Needless to say my shoulders and arms are aching as well. The snow is supposed to stop sometime today and then the rest of the digging out will start in the neighborhood. Thankfully we have a snow blower because without it I can’t even imagine trying to move all that snow. I have absolutely no idea at this point why I live here anymore.
I’ve got some pictures of the snow for you all coming up. Oh and Sam loves all this snow. He wasn’t too thrilled until my Dad snow blowed some paths for him but now he’s loving it. I meant to get a pic of him on his path but never got around to it. I can’t even see him when he goes around the other side of the path. lol. Anyhow he loves to run around in circles and back and forth and jump into the snowbanks or stick his head in. He’s nuts! Here’s the snow…
On the reading front I have to say I’m in a reading slump. I just can’t seem to get to any serious reading lately. I finished Nocturne by Syrie James yesterday and will have a review up tomorrow. I enjoyed it well enough. I’m still pretty much working on all the same books as I was last week. I really dislike reading slumps – they are so frustrating. I feel like reading – it’s just nothing is keeping my attention.
I only have a couple of photos of Sammy to leave you with this week. He’s teething big time right now- 4 of his bottom teeth fell out and 1 top so far. He’s been moody and biting like crazy. I think he’s mad- – lol. It’s kind of funny when he’s licking – it’s almost like he’s thinking I know I had these sharp things before – where have they gone? The other teeth are already coming in though but thankfully they won’t be as sharp. Hopefully once he’s past teething, he’ll start biting less.
So how was everyone else’s weekend? Did you get any reading done or anything else for that matter? I hope you all have a great week ahead!
