We must have gotten a foot at the very least since the snow started coming. It is absolutely beautiful. But also inconvenient. I want to get to church tomorrow, especially since I didn't make it LAST week.So, I put on my boots and coat and hat and mittens, and went out to shovel. I noted the time so I could record it as cardio. My neighbor was using a snowblower on his driveway. I slowly hacked away at mine, and then I saw him coming over my way with his machine. I started to watch gratefully as he began to clear out the apron where the worst stuff is - the heavy, "greasy" stuff mixed with plowed salty snow, then returned to getting the stuff in front of the cars. Glitterfairy's kettle bells arrived - poor Fedex guy had to lug that small 50 pound box! - and Glitterfairy popped out to get it and check on me. She suggested I come in and she would take over - we do have another shovel but it's a heavy one, and she can't manage it. So I told her to let me know when 10 or 15 minutes passed. After clearing most around the vehicles and profusely thanking my neighbor, I went in, and TWENTY minutes had passed - she'd lost track of the time, working on her classwork.
Well, I had a good workout!
