Before and After Our Recent Blizzard

100_5310

So this is how the yard looked as we heard about NEMO arriving in our section of the US.

We got gas in the pick-up truck and in a gas can for our very old snow blower, we just hoped

it could stand up to the storm they were predicting for us. They said from 1 foot of fresh

light powder type snow to 2 feet in some places.  The also said the winds would be wild.

I am here to show and tell that yes it arrived and what a storm it was.  We never lost power

as so many did just south of us,  maybe lots north of us as well I never watched the news we were too busy

moving SNOW.

 

You see the snow just started falling and it seemed it would never stop.  I said I would stay up all night

and shovel it off as three inches fell,  you know I have a bad back and plow truck is broken and I wanted

to help him as I knew him with a bad heart would be hours moving it from the rest of our yard.  Well I fell

asleep and woke at 4 AM to let the dog and cat out.  That wasn’t happening as the snow was up against the back door,

so in a robe, Bright Red(would help to find me if I fell and cracked my head, lol) and winter boots pulled on

over bare feet I stepped outside while JT and Rhythm watched from the warm living room, with their legs crossed,

as their Mom shoveled a 10′ long path for them to go do their business . The cat stepped out and right back in,  her litter box is

all she would need.  JT could pee but need more room to do anything else so here I am, snow coming down making and area wider

at the end of the path for her boy does she have a good Mommy.  Now I forgot to tell you the snow was deeper than the boots I use in winter,

I refuse to wear knee-high boots for anything besides fashion!

She was now done and waited to be wiped dry,  yes she is so spoiled and now I have just had a workout and unable to sleep, so I worked on the computer

and had my coffee and waited for daybreak,  so I would not wake the dead(my neighbors) when I started the snow blower,  my intent was to punch a path for

the pets and the wild birds who feed on the ground.  It would be fast,  NOT!   It took 2 hours for me behind the machine to make a path through the snow that

had not yet stopped  and to clear an area below the bird feeders.  He was up by now with all the racket and he took over.  He was out there for 8 hours moving

snow!  Remember we have a small and very old snow thrower.

Here are some after shots.

Can you see the roof I went up and had to shovel that as he took all the snow I threw down and blew the yard all over again!

Did I tell you I hate winter and do you know those of us 55 and old are 4 times more likely to have a heart attack.  The place was now safe

but were we?  I hurt in places I never thought I could and that damn thing I wear on my hip to show how much activity I have done after 3 and a half

hours shoveling the roof only said I did hardly ANYTHING for exercise  talk about adding insult to injury.

 

So I am off for weigh in and I am probably up a pound but hey I had to keep my STRENGTH UP

Miss you all but winter has had a grip on me

 

More photos today when I come back as I am sending him to the beach alone so I can eat candy and visit ALL YOUR BLOGS

Thanksgiving Feasts

Weight Watchers

Keeping Track

 

Hi

Well for those of us here in America we had Thanksgiving on Thursday then left overs over and over so if I am

going to have a good weigh-in come Tuesday :) this will be what my meals will look like.  Not such a bad deal

but I can only eat lettuce just so much.  I better be good if I want to get back to that “ABOUT” photo of ME

 

Thanks for humoring me

Eunice

 

 

Walking it off

 

B&W

Walk Back

 

I huff and puff all the way to the top

I stay as focused as my pup

When we reach the top I let her play as we catch our breath

It does feel good to push through the pain

Down 65 total so far

Boy what a mess I had gotten myself into

There is still ups and downs with pain

I have the diet down pat

If you can’t do anything it takes longer to see results

So I will push when I can rest when I can’t

It took 10 years to put it on

So if it is all gone in 3

I will be so pleased

Keep on keeping on what ever battle you face down the road

I know the wreck started this

I was not to blame but in the end I only

Punished

MYSELF
