Yesterday I was out shoveling the front walk and porch. The snow has reached the level of the porch (4 steps up) and it is beginning to be hard to find a place to put the shoveled snow. After finishing in the front I turned to walk through the yard to get to the driveway. I soon realized that this would not work as the snow in some places was up to my hip. So I walked around the corner and down the alley to get to our driveway. I looked at it and decided I would need a break and a glass of water before I started on it. (I was already tired!) I went inside to sit down for a few minutes and then heard what I thought was a plow going down the alley. I opened the garage door and discovered our sweet neighbor going up and down our driveway with his snow blower. I grabbed my boots and ran outside to give him a giant hug! What a life saver he was yesterday for me!
This morning I woke up with my back aching and couldn't remember doing anything that would make it hurt so bad. Then I remembered the hour I spent outside shoveling that snow. We are just starting the winter. I am already looking forward to spring!
