    Default Grateful for food neighbours and friends

    Some of you know that my husband has had a few falls recently, so I have taken on the role of chef, cook and bottlewasher. I don't mind but I do have to say that, while I can keep up with almost anything, the snow has been my worst enemy.

    Last week I was able to just push the snow aside in our double driveway, as I can't lift it on top of the snowbanks which are still over 5' high. That was 2 days of heavy snow last week. Then in the past few days we have had another ~8" of wet heavy snow. I used the scooper to push aside, in front and in back of DH car. He can't drive right now, so it doesn't matter.

    Yesterday I had to run errands for DH to tax accountant and as it's an hour away, I took advantage of stopping at a quilt store in the area that stocks all Kona solids. I had my list. Then IKEA which DH hates to go to. I had shoved snow aside just enough to get out. Then DH had appointment with an osteopath. When we came home, our driveway had been cleared by our neighbour Jim.

    He is a godsend, same age as DH and good friend. I was already going over to bring a thank you card with gift certificate from Lee Valley, a woodworking store. Last weekend, he fixed a rocking chair that had loose spindles and the panel on our team table. I added a bottle of his favorite wine. His wife Connie and I are good friend, so we shared a glass. She is from Nova Scotia and a good friend to have. As she said we are both much younger than our husbands and we have to look after them.

    Have a good day. Another appointment for Michael today.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    It's always nice to have a snow angel. We have a volunteer from our church who has been clearing our snow for 8 yrs. He hasn't had much to clear this winter. We are way behind with precip. Even some of the ski areas in the mts. are hurting for snow. I hope your trip to the quilt store was productive.
