Snow shovel anyone?

We got dumped on again. All of the southeast did. And, my DH (a southern guy) is finding the benefits of using a real "snow" shovel (yeah, one of those wide, flat red ones) to clear a path from the back porch to the yard." You can get a good workout doing this," says he.

The big black dog is a great supervisor. The snow doesn't phase him. He finds a good vantage point and plops right down in it.

Lucy, the neighbor kitty, has been hanging around and wanted to get into the snow-shoveling action. He's not much help, but sure is amusing when he tries to jump up on a snow covered car hood (and doesn't quite make it). Ever see a cat do acrobatics?


And our fuzzy, blue-eyed huskie just loves it! She blends right into the landscape.

And me, I've got the kettle on and I'm preparing lesson plans for my quilt guild's (Choo Choo Quilters) upcoming yearlong inspirational quilting and design program. We're using Lorraine Torrence's book, "Fearless Design for Every Quilter" as the textbook. I'm collaborating with a team of 3 other motivating and talented women on the program and I'm kicking it off with the first lesson, "Learning to See Again."

Get ready for some contour drawing and other right brain activities!

  1. Your flat red shovel is ok, but with the type of snow you are getting, you should look at a wheeled push shovel (you can find different makes and models on Amazon) -it acts like a human powered plow. Makes cleanup a snap without all the lifting!

    Love your husky, he looks right at home in the snow ;)
