Yesterday as I was shoveling the first snow of the season, I was contemplating the name of the blog post for the event. I do love shoveling snow! Admittedly, it's all about the instant gratification. Tim remarked it funny that I don't necessarily like to bundle up for a walk around the block but will spring out of bed to shovel new fallen flakes. What's odd about wanting to clear the sidewalk before someone tromps through it willy nilly with their boots??
I took pictures and everything but guess what internet and telephone service was conveniently experiencing an outage?? --- mine. Nothing yesterday and still nothing today -- I am at the library at this moment while McKay works on her school -- getting my blog fix.
Today I have already shoveled three times and it's still coming down. Did I mention I LOVE shoveling snow??
Potatoes and a giant sweet onion are roasting in the oven for the Roasted Potato and Rosemary soup we'll have for supper. Hopefully there'll be leftovers because it's better the second day.
We stopped at Charter on the way here and requested they send someone -- (anyone except the last guy they sent) to get our internet back (frankly I could care less about the phone) They are scheduled to arrive between three and five, schedule being the word used loosely here.
Dinner prepared -- check.
Internet service repair call placed -- check.
Snow shoveled -- check, check, check.
Bring it on Old Man Winter... I love shoveling.
