I am going to remain positive here. No whining about the relentless white stuff falling from the sky. No moans and groans about the inevitable power loss. Just calm acceptance and an assurance that this too shall melt!
Days such as this, when we must go for hours without that lovely stuff called electricity, will remind me not to fret over the amount charged on my electric bill, to write out the check or online payment with a flourish and complete appreciation for the privilege and convenience of POWER!
I did make the most of my electricity free time. I curled up by the woodstove in my favorite recliner, snuggly fleece blanket across my legs, delicious tea within my reach and a fabulous mini vacation in my hand (aka: frivolous novel). It took me away from watching this….
for a few hours. Do you remember yesterday? Where I compared Thursday, Mar. 18 to Friday, Mar. 19 on my back deck? Here is the reminder photo…
You can barely make out the tops of the poles in my barrel and my poor bent over bamboo is nearly completely unrecognizable. Ah, welcome Madame Spring!
Who knows when the plows will make it thru. We have over a foot on the roadways as we speak and no sign of the snow letting up. I will sit here and thankfully ponder my little luxuries, the refrigerator humming, my internet is back, and my trusty dusty laptop now graces my lap so I can visit with all of you.
My handsome strong backed hubby is once again out shoveling. He took advantage of the electricity free time to snore gently in his recliner. He deserved it, he had plowed for nearly 3 hours earlier today to clear the driveway and walkways of snow. He loves the stuff but I think even he is getting a bit weary of white!
My humble abode adorned in her winter gown…
Now that I have bored you all to tears with my non-whining, I shall return to my novel and my snow free mini-vacation!
PS. if you don’t hear from me tomorrow you will know they packed me off to the Funny Farm!
