Snow Toll

Shoveling heavy snow did me in, and I've been told to get some rest. I'm not alone though, while at the doctor's, I heard of many injuries and strains.

Moving snow wasn't so much a problem until the last 2 feet of snow came in - it meant heaving the snow up and over piles of snow that was already more than 6 feet. Just trying to keep the snow from piling up so close to the house in case of a Pineapple Express (which we got).

Hubby made a big pot of turkey noodle soup to make me feel better.   It's workin'.

I'm getting some stitching done, finishing up the two quilt-tops for QWL that I started in the Fall.
And, I've got my Crazy Quilting Basket with CQ Lessons sitting in front of the t.v. to work on.
