Southerners May Enjoy This But to Northerners It May Be Ho-Hum!

We have two garages. This one sits behind the house. It took Hubby hours to plow this with our little snowplow. The farther he went, the deeper the drift. We knew we would never get the rest of it done. So we were happy to see the neighbor come down the street with his blade. (If you click on the photo you will get a much better image.)

It was easy for him to drive up into the driveways and "pull" the snow out towards the street. Yay for Guys with Trucks!
As I ventured out yesterday I took a photo of what I have always called the "Cinderella House". One might think living in this house must be a marvelous thing...like living in fairytale land. When we moved back to town this house was for sale and we looked at it but it was too small and needed too many updates. It looks like a castle and castles are huge but this is only a small "replica" so to speak. It's small. So we declined. That's good because I don't want to live in fairytales. I prefer to live in reality. (Do click on this one...the house is darling.)
I was in the doctor's office yesterday for a bone scan. Chemo brings on osteoporosis and so my doc wanted me to get a scan. Then he'll probably want to put me on a pill. Aaack! The clinic has an outdoor atrium and look how the snow blows in. You can see my reflection in the window.I like this view down our street. And, Yep, that's a giant pumpkin still sitting on our front step. And I like that the plowing is done and we can get out and about. It's sunny again today and a bit warmer but it is still only about 10 degrees. If you live in the southern states, enjoy! If you live north, I hope you, too, are able to be out and about in the midst of the storm that covered several states.

Wow. I guess I didn't realize that you'd gotten that much snow. It is 16 here right now. Compared to you, we are some pretty fortunate folk!

We've got a second garage as well. It is a three car thing. Wanna hear the funny part? The cars we drive everyday sit outside in the driveway. The garages are full. Of cars.

I wondered how you were fairing in the storms. This is the first pic I've seen of your house. It's fun now to be able to picture you on the doorstep.

Boy, am I ever grateful Milwaukee was on the rainier side of things!

The cinderella house is indeed darling - love the little turret.

There, see, you've got more snow now than we do.

In fact, even though its been on the ground for a month-and-a-half, not much snow has fallen here at all.

So I feel a little embarrassed.

Yes because I had chemo at 39 which put me into menopause, I'm on a pill to strengthen my bones. I haven't experienced any side effects.
