Snow Days and 21st Birthday!

Snow Days have been here!… k25765429School’s out and businesses closed…

I can hear my Mom’s voice…

Too cold… brrr

Too icy… k7146593

Be careful… k4809138

Wrap up good… bundle_c

Let your car warm up…

Have plenty of gas in-car… k7783346

Make sure you have plenty of milk, bread and goodies… k22727098

Oh, no!… the “goodies” were added by my husband!…  k16061577

We were prepared…k26031096

and I was content to stay in , snuggle under my quilt, read and cook…

We could sweep the first snow off with the broom… a light, fluffy snow that was almost weightless

‘The second melting snow… froze… and then the third snow was a blowing, colder, thicker snow…

We accumulated about 8 inches total…

My neighbors know of Bobby’s heart trouble (heart attack from shoveling) k18182295 a couple of years ago…

and the cancer Chemo treatments the last 9 months…

so…

when we heard blowing sounds from our neighbor’s leaf blower… and scraping sounds of shovels…

we looked out to find a neighbor cleaning off the cars… and clearing drive-way, walks and porch…

We were ever so grateful!…

Neighbor’s will not take money… but, when I offered homemade vegetable beef soup…  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA … that was a different story…

I had put on a big pot early in the morning… so it was hot and ready… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA … to be shared…

I added a sleeve of saltines in case they had no crackers…

The sun has come out today… and from what I hear the main roads are clear… and side roads are getting better…

We are venturing out for my Granddaughter’s 21st Birthday this evening… k5514925

Dinner at Aspen Creek Restaurant, cake at home… and then her request… A trip to the River Boat Casino in Indiana…

She said, “Everyone has talked about it… and I want to at least see it”… now that she is of age…

She is so tiny… hard to believe she is 21…

and her little boyfriend will have to wait for the boat trip… he won’t be 21 until June…

too bad Jessee…

Her birthday was Friday… but, wanted to save gifts for today… when we all would be together…

I hope she has a great time!

  1. Nice photos. Sounds and looks like our snow, except no one here is offering to clear my car off. Doors are frozen. I did manage to wobble out there and using a broom, swept a way a lot of the snow, but the car is surrounded by snow. I am concerned because I have a doctor’s appointment Monday. I am so used to doing everything myself. I just can’t do so much any longer. Makes me so mad!!!! lol
