Gosh! I Found Me A Keeper!!

January 29, 2011

I'm getting a rather late start this morning. Tootsie and I got up earlier around 7 am, and then went right back to bed. I'm sitting here with a cup of coffee, and the weather channel is on so that I can learn about the new storm that is going to hit us in a few days.
*
Mother Nature must be going through menopause because the weather has been wicked crazy for the past few months, especially this winter. It's looking like the new storm might be bringing an awful lot of ice with it. Oh joy, oh joy!!
*
Yesterday morning, I got up a little before 5 am to see if we had been plowed out. Oh my!! Not one tiny drop of snow was missing from my yard. At 5 am, I started making calls. One to the plow guy who never showed up, one to another plow guy for just in case, and at 6 am, one to my boss to let them know I could not make it to work.
*
At 5:15 am, I watched out my window as a little sidewalk plow crept along the sidewalk out front and put even more snow and ice in front of the entrance to my yard. This is really getting sad. It just makes it more difficult for a plow to even get in here.
*
The missing snow plow guy called me a few hours later to apologize for not being here the night before. He said he came by and saw that we had already been plowed and kept right on going. I told him he was obviously at some other address as we still could not get out of here. He promised to come by in a bit and plow us out.
*
He did show up, and did a FANTASTIC job. I asked him to put us on his list of "regular" customers. Actually, he did the best job that any plow guy has ever done here. Plus, he went around with a shovel to pick any bits that were left behind by the plow blade in front of the cars and the steps going into the house. My goodness, where has he been hiding all these years??? This guy is definitely a keeper!

Rhoda, if you're reading this, don't be laughing!!! In case you don't know my friend Rhoda, she is enjoy some warm temperatures in sunny Florida while I am buried in snowy New England. Way to go, Rho!!!

Folks, get ready for another huge Gothic Inspirations Blog Train. It's coming on Tuesday, the first of February. And the best part? It's a CU blog train. You won't want to miss it!!
*
For photos, I have two that I took a couple of weeks ago when it was raining a bit. It was night time, and I opened my window and took these of the hedge right outside. I am always fascinated by the pretty patterns and pictures in the rain drops that cling to each little needle or leaf.
*

























Is there anyone else out there nutty like me who gets pleasure out of photographing raindrops? Let me know. It will feel good to know that I am not the only one getting high off nature.
*
For putting up with all my snow stories, and photos of raindrops, I have a QP freebie for you. I realize the number on it is out of sequence with previous QP's, but I figure we are ready for a scrap page that has nothing to do with winter or holidays. The little fairy looks like she is praying to Mother Nature for an early Spring. Gosh, I hope it works!!

As for news about my family, Dee Dee is recovering nicely (though painfully) from her broken leg and has just started some physical therapy. Audrey has bounced back from her bout with a nasty winter cold, and Gary Jr has come through his surgery okay, and is out of intensive care. I talked with him briefly last night and it made my heart happy.
*
On that note, it's time for me to make some lunch for Tootsie. She is sitting here patiently with a hungry look on her face. I'm gone!! Till tomorrow, Y'all stay warm and have a fantabulous day.
*
Hugs, Edna B.
