Snow Feed

Letters letters letters!

No walk again today, but I got a stack of letters caught up.  I'm so relieved to do that.  I have put them off way too long.  I'm so glad to have a stack to mail.  I still don't have enough stamps for them all.  I hope to be able to walk in a few days and I'll get the stamps I need then and mail the stack.

I was able to get my car unstuck today.  I went out and shoveled some snow around my car.  I got in and drove forward and backward. I was able to get it dislodged. I backed out and went to the gas station and got some gas so I didn't have to worry about that anymore.  I was able to get home and get my car back in and in it's usual spot.  I was so happy to get that done!

I will try to drive it again tomorrow in the afternoon to help keep the driveway clear.  I thought about going out tonight but it was freezing out there and I knew there would be ice on the roads so I decided to just stay here.   

I ordered an additional case for my iPad Mini and it was supposed to be delivered today.  It wasn't. It was out for delivery and I kept waiting for it. I finally saw where it couldn't be delivered because there was no access to the house.  I think he just posted that and didn't even try. I have my front walk shoveled all the way to the street. Hopefully he'll bring it tomorrow.  


Snow day two

So, according to the reports I hear, we got over a foot of snow!  I looked out today and the street was cleared off, but there is snow piled up high on both sides from where they scraped it.  I went out last night and cleared off my front walk, and today, I went out and cleared off my back steps. I thought I would drive my car down to the end of the driveway and back in to clear path. I got stuck. Lol. I finally got unstuck and got out into the road. I went to turn around and got back in the driveway, but my car got stuck half way up the driveway. LOL Oops!  Hopefully I’ll be able to move it tomorrow.  My gas light it on, so I didn’t want to keep trying to move iit any more. I am hoping that  with the sun today and it’s supposed to get in the 40’s tomorrow, some more snow will melt.  I don’t like leaving my car half way down my driveway. Lol

I haven’t done anything today. Well, I did read, but other than that, I haven’t done anything.  I don’t know when I’ll be able to get back to walking again. It’s going to take a while for this snow to go away.  Right now, it was hard for me to walk out there to get to my car. I even fell down when I was out there. Luckily I fell in the snow, so I didn’t hurt anything. :p

 


Il Neige! (It’s snowing)

Oh boy is it snowing here.  When I went to bed last night, it hadn’t started.  I was thinking it wasn’t going to be that big of a deal. I was wrong. LOL!  It is crazy out there.  Here is a picture I took on my iPad.  The camera on it isn’t as good as on my phone, but it’s not too bad.  I have pictures on my phone, too, but I’m typing this up on the iPad. Here is a picture of the backyard.

It’s pretty deep out there and it’s still steadily snowing!  I am watching it from my bedroom window as I type this. So pretty.  I love snow so much.  I may go out in the yard later and see how that is. I might not though. It’s so deep, I might get lost. :p

I just finished my second cup of coffee for the day and I’m ready for another. :)
 


Saturday again

I walked today and I actually walked a bit further than usual because I needed to go to the post office.  I had a stack of mail again.  I am writing all my letters tomorrow.  I stopped one more time on my walk to look for an item I needed, but I couldn’t find it.  I’ll try somewhere else after the snow.

It’s supposed to start snowing tonight at 3 or so and snow al the way into Monday morning!  They are saying 6-12 and then I heard 12-18. Yikes! Lol. I am not sure how much we will be getting, but I’m definitely not walking tomorrow. The streets are salted and some of the sidewalks, but it will still be a few days before I’m able to walk again.  

I totally forgot to pick up stamps today. I have a lot less stamps than I have letters at the moment.  I’ll still write my letters. I never meant to get this far behind and then today I got anotther stack of them. Oops!  My new year’s resoluation is to not get behind on pen pal letters!

 


Friday Fun

I walked today and it was cool out there.  It wasn’t too bad though.  I got home from my walk and relaxed a bit. My friend had wanted to go eat yesterday, but I had to wait to sign for my package, so he decided we’d eat today.  We went to Roma which is one of our favorite local pizza restaurants.  It was delicious as usual.  After eating,  he dropped me home.

I immediately stated looking for an program to move that one app to my iPad. I still can’t get it to do it.  I found some apps that might work, but you have to pay to use that feature, and I’m afraid that I’ll pay and still not be able to do it.  There has to be a legit, free way to do it.  UGH! I might chat with Apple support tomorrow and see if they might have a suggestion.

Remember the Fossil satchel bag that I got that smelled highly of perfume?  Well, it doesn’t now.  My friend has an ozone generator and he put it in a room with it for a day and it doesn’t smell like perfume anymore. Yay! I changed to it tonight.

Tomorrow is my last day of walking for a few days.  Well, probably. We are supposed to have a big winter storm event here on Sunday. If it snows, I’ll be sitting at my deck with a cup of coffee looking out at the snow. ^_^. I kind of hope it does snow. It will be pretty and it always makes everything smell so much better!


Sunday and Starbucks?

Well, it snowed like mad last night as I mentioned when I was posting.  It was still all over the grass and things when I got up today so I decided to not walk.  It got warmer as the day went on and the sun came out so it started melting.  I needed to run to Starbucks today because it was the last day of another star streak.  If I got over there and made a purchase today, I'd get thirty bonus stars.  I called one friend and she wouldn't take me.  In fact, she never wants to take me anywhere when I need to go.  I've been dealing with a messed up car for three years and NOT ONCE has she asked if I needed her to take me anywhere.  Lifelong friend.  Some friend, eh?  I decided to just go myself.  My gas light was on and I don't like to drive the car when it is.  I usually don't drive it again when it comes on until I can go to the gas station and fill up.  I made it over there and there was a line in the drive thru.  Considering I was low on gas, I decided to park and go in!  I did and they were busy.  Luckily I hadn't planned to go and stay because there was no where to sit! I got my drink and headed home.

I asked another friend if he'd like to walk.  I noticed when I was driving over to Starbucks that it was quite nice outside.  He said he'd think about it.  I went ahead and did my workouts and my French lesson and got ready to fix lunch.  I asked him again and he decided not to go.  I decided I'd just take my regular walk.  It would just be at a different time.  I did just that and it was pretty nice outside, but I was really tired and I felt like I was dying at the time I got home.  I didn't sleep well last night and I haven't slept well lately as I'm mentioned and it's catching up with me!  

I have my bed linen in the dryer and it's ready to go back on the bed.  I just need to get up and do that.  It took many tries to get it out of the washer!  Sometimes when I have a heavy load, it doesn't drain and spin correctly.  I had to run the drain and spin cycle at least three times before it actually spun all the water out.  It drives me crazy when it does that!  It doesn't do it every time I wash my bed linens, but it does happen sometimes.  


Snow.....

So, I woke up today and it was sunny!  I thought, what the hell?  I thought it was supposed to snow and rain! I texted my friend and he said that the sun had just come out and it had been overcast all day.  Well, since it wasn't snowing or raining, but decided to walk and I did.  It was overcast and cold during my walk but it was dry!  Later, after I got home and started on my workouts, it rained a little.  Then, it snowed a little.  Then it sleeted a little! LOL!  I figured it would just be rain and no snow sticking at all.  Imagine my surprise when I looked out the window a few hours ago and saw snow sticking to the grass, the trees and the road!  I am sure it will be gone tomorrow, but it's really coming down tonight!  I was surprised because I went out earlier on a errand and it was mainly rain and a little snow.  Since I was out, I went by Starbucks. :p

I wonder if this will be completely gone tomorrow, actually.  I might not get to walk tomorrow if the majority of it on the road isn't gone. If it is still on the road, it will be on the sidewalks.  We'll see how it goes tomorrow.  I just looked out a bit ago and it's still coming down.  It's actually very pretty!  I'm sort of sad that it didn't happen earlier today so I could sit and watch it!  I just turned off all my lights and opened my blinds. LOL  I can watch it for a bit.  The street looks totally covered and the neighbors car parked on the stree is mostly covered too!  I just took a closer look and it's still coming down!  What is so weird about all this late in the year snow, is that in this area, we don't usually have a lot of snow.  We've had several snow events this year.  Thost are unusual but for it to snow this late in the season is even more unusual!  It's weird to be sitting looking out at snow knowing that in less than a week, I'll be at the beach!  Hopefully there will be no snow there! :p


Il neige!

That means, it's snowing in French!  Yes, it's snowing here!  They said we'd get a little snow and then it would be all rain.  So far, it's been all snow! lol  I didn't walk today because I was afraid the snow would stop and it would be rainy and gross.  Well, it didn't rain, but the snow is falling fast and furious.  The sidewalks would have been covered.  I went out a little bit ago to mail the pen pal letters I wrote last night since I didn't go for my walk.  The streets aren't too bad, but the sidewalks are pretty nuts.  It's a good thing I didn't walk!  I hit a few Pokestops while I was out since I was on a streak and today was day 7.  

I stopped at Hardee's on my way back and got myself a coffee.  I should have waited until I got home and just fixed another cup here, but oh well!  It's nice to get some on the go.  Besides, I had to go out in this mess.  I deserved a treat.  I would have gone to Starbucks, but I didn't want to go across town!

So, I'm in for the day now.  I hope it will be clear enough for me to walk tomorrow.  I don't like to miss too many days in a row.  I still have my workouts to do.  I'll do those later this evening.  Right now, I'm just going to sit at my deck and look out at the pretty snow.  It's still falling and it's very nice.  I took a few pictures to share with you:

 

 


Prime failed me again!

I ordered an item on Monday with two day shipping.  It was scheduled to arrive today no later than 8pm.  Guess what didn't come today?  It is now in limbo as it's been for the past few days. ~_~; I wish that Amazon would use another service for Prime members.  I'm not going to re-new my membership, that is for sure!  I ordered my bullet journal earlier this month and did one day ship on that,  It didn't get here next day.  Then, I ordered two different items.  Neither got here on time.  This one is just the icing on the cake.  This package went from Texas to Kentucky to North Carolina!  WTF?

As for my Etsy order, it's supposed to arrive tomorrow!  I can't wait to see my little charms.  I'll do a write up on them if they arrive tomorrow.  I'm hoping that my Amazon package will get back on track and get to me tomorrow, but I'm not holding my breath!

I went out today and cleaned the snow off of my car and drove it to the end of the driveway and backed it back in.  I decided that I'd better at least drive it out into the street so that if there was a snow bank at the end of the driveway, I'd flatten it.  I did just that.  I drove around the block and then came back and parked it.  Now there is a path to get out of my driveway if needed.  I noticed that off all my surrounding neighbors, I'm the only one that cleared my front walk.  I hope the mail man appreciated it!  He did deliver mail today but it was all junk mail.  

I just finished my workouts not too long ago.  I am going to play more Pocket Camp and then read more on my book.  I am not planning on being able to walk tomorrow.  My friend that takes me out sometimes came today and we went to eat.  The sidewalks that I could see on the main road were still snow covered and it was high because of the city workers scraping the streets.  I am not sure how bad it is all the way down, but for safety reasons, I'm going to wait until Saturday to try to walk. Also, the street that is above mine that I have to walk on to get the main road is still covered.  It looks like an ice skating rink! I'd have to walk very slowly and very carefully so I'm giving it another day.  I think it's supposed to get up in the forties tomorrow, so that will help.  The sun coming out today helped too! 


Oh boy did it snow!

I was so not expecting the snow that we got today.  Yes, I knew  they were calling for snow but they are saying around 3 inches total.  Last official count I heard, we were almost to 7 inches!  It's probably going to be awhile before I can get back out to walk!  I went out and walked in the yard in it a bit this afternoon and it was crazy deep.  It was all powdery this afternoon.  After it finally stopped snowing, I went out to the front walk with a cutting board and cleared the walk!  The snow was so light, it was easy.  The only bad thing was that I couldn't find any of my gloves.  My poor hands were numb and then hurting when I came in!  I need to find my gloves!

I did my workouts this evening.  I was glad to do those since I couldn't walk.  I used the day to sit at my desk and look out at the snow. I also drank a lot of coffee!  I put three 'new' trackers in my bullet journal.  I put the Pokemon Go trackers of Generation 1-3 in there.  That took a while, so I it was a good day to do it when I couldn't really go anywhere! :p  Tomorrow I plan to write pen pal letters.  Hopefully I can get out before too many more days and get them mailed.  The mail didn't even run here today!  I hope it does tomorrow.  I'm expected some things.  One is supposed to be here tomorrow, but who knows with this crazy weather. :P

Here is one of the pictures I took today:

The building on the left is an old chicken house that has been on my property since forever.  You can see a outdoor table and chairs on the right.  There is a swing near the back of the yard.  It was so lovely out there, but it's going to be crazy trying to go anywhere anytime soon!
