I Miss My Shovel...

...I know this is a strange title for a post. I miss shoveling the driveway. I look forward to snow. Even though my husband uses the snow blower to clear the driveway, I like digging and shoveling. It's a workout! With the mild weather lately, I think the chances of a snow fall are minimal.

We sold our "lemon" snowblower earlier this year, and due to a financial pledge my husband and I made to one another we will not be buying another one until we can purchase it with cash. So, we have done a lot of shoveling this year. I too have found the rhythm of it- the beauty in the simpleness of the task. I hope you get a bit more snow soon! :)

Emily -- You are so right about the rhythm of shoveling. There's something very satisfying about seeing an ever-growing pile of snow, too.

Elena -- Like you, I want one last snowfall. Won't seem like much of a winter without one. Didn't Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow?
