attitude of gratitude

Is it just me or did this week go by in a blur? The weekend went out with a bang when we awoke Monday morning to snow, lots o' snow.

I even learned how to use the snow blower, woohoo! A wonderful invention!

Wednesday I bought salt for the driveway and we chipped away at the ice that had built up. Why, you ask? Why were we so intent on getting rid of the ice? Well on Tuesday night we went out to return a movie only to find the truck at the bottom of the driveway more than a car length further down the driveway than where it had been parked...yep gotta love an icy hill for a driveway. Anyway onto my gratitude list for this week:

1. Snow, I love that we live somewhere we can experience all 4 seasons, true summer and winter included.

2. Snow blower and salt see #1.

3. Dryer fuses, ours came in today and tomorrow I will clean out the lint and have it up and running again. The past 2 ands a half weeks of only rack drying has given me a new appreciation for the dryer.

4. Good friends, I had the opportunity to get together with some good friends this week and I just love it.

Thanks for stopping by have some more coffee with some other company girls.

Hi there! That's quite a lot of snow you have there! It seems that we already had our main winter storm back in December. I am glad to see the snow finally melting away, messy though it is. I wish we would have had one of those handy snow blowers back when we had three feet of snow!

Thanks for stopping in at my blog yesterday. It's always nice to meet someone new over coffee or tea. :) Have a great day!

I'm sure the snowblower is a great help for you. I can't imagine... I do live in Northern California. haha

Glad you got to spend time with friends. That's the best!

Have a great weekend.

I don't know what would be worse: icy driveway or no dryer! You should get a prize for suffering through both at the same time! Won't you LOVE pulling things from your dryer again!! Towels just don't have the same softness when dried on a rack.

I've never operated a snow blower, but I think I'd feel pretty powerful with one. Take THAT, you blanket of snow! I would, of course, wear lipstick.

Now that is some snow. DH would love to purchase a snow blower, for what I ask?
