Baby it’s cold outside.

The snow has finally tapered off. I’m thankful that it stopped since all of the city sidewalks needed to be clear by this evening. There is nothing worse than shoveling snow, knowing that you will just have to shovel again in a few hours. Although when you break up shoveling 6 inches of wet, heavy snow into two separate activities, it’s probably not as hard on the body. I should have done some shoveling after I took Novia to her bus-stop, but I was upset with Jack who punched and ripped a hole in the plastic seal {on one window} that I put on the windows the other day. I don’t know if he encountered it on accident when he put his paws on the window ledge or if he was mad because he didn’t get to go with on a walk like he did yesterday.

I did think to grab my camera when I took Novia to the bus. I didn’t take as many pics as I wanted to because the snow was fairly wet and it was gathering on my camera. I captured some fun ones of Novia though and a few of the neighborhood covered in it’s new white blanket.

Novia was holding her arms out like that so that her back pack wouldn’t fall off. I guess the straps have stretched.

In spite of having to shovel this white heavy stuff, I am thankful for the snow. It is such a beautiful reminder of how Jesus has washed away my sins. Though they were as dark as scarlet, his blood {from his death on the cross} made them white like snow. It was a helpful correlation at bedtime when we talked about celebrating Jesus’ birth and why he came to this earth. 

Pardon me now, I was blessed when neighbor D’s “lawn” boy cleared my driveway when he did hers, but he blew all of the snow on one side of the driveway on top of our van. I need to go sweep it off before the temps drop further and it all freezes solid. G’night all!

Oh the weather outside is frightful. . . 

We in Minnesota are currently under a winter storm warning. I will say, that in recent years the response to “impending snow” by the news media and weather forecasters tends to be one of over-reaction, so when I hear there is a winter advisory or warning, I generally don’t rush around in a flurry {no pun intended}. Well it’s snowing and the temps are dropping. We have about 3 inches of snow so far…. I guess we’re supposed to get more. I’m not panicking, because this is Minnesota after all and this is what happens in the winter. So let it snow!

On Monday I headed out to run some errands before we got a wintry mix that afternoon. I couldn’t help laughing as I walked to my garage. What was so funny? My neighbor’s lawn boy was furiously mowing her lawn {for the perfect manicure} one last time as the snow flakes began falling from the sky. It wasn’t like it had been sunny and then all of the sudden snow started falling. No, it had already begun sleeting when I saw him fly down the street in his S-10 pickup. In that moment, I simply thought that D needed help moving something in her house, but she had clearly called him in the spur of the moment, knowing that this would be her final opportunity to have her grass cut. Close your eyes and picture it, you just might giggle too. I felt bad for the boy as I’m sure he felt ridiculous pushing a lawn mower while it was snowing… in December. Oh D, we love you and your OCD lawn care! 

Happy hump day! How do you spend the first REAL snowy day of the season? I’m gonna grab a cup of hot cocoa and throw on a movie for the kids.
