(((Wolfie))) thinking of you every day.
Comme des Garcons 2.
Mr and Mrs PL - have a great day celebrating together.
"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."
-- Eckhart Tolle
Afternoon, everyone. Sending warm thoughts to everyone caught in the blizzard (also energizing ones for those who have to shovel all that snow...gah!!) SOTA is Opus III, it smells so lovely (and the weather in Nashville is sunny and nice, so the scent fits with early spring).
Wearing Guerlain's Eau de Coq. Think I may have to change to something spicier as sun goes down here in NYC.
I'm about to quit for the day. I'm beat!
The snowblower's wheels came off the axle and went flat-- it could not handle the depth of snow in the driveway at all. (It's 29" deep and would have been deeper but I shoveled 4" yesterday.) We managed to use it to throw the snow by shoveling the snow into it and advancing very slowly, but it ran out of gas-- and it turns out my dear husband had not bought extra gasoline, not quite believing the forecast. He is out there now trying to siphon gasoline out of our car gas tank (and not succeeding.)
Meanwhile we have been breaking our backs shoveling. And the snow at the sides of the driveway where we have shoveled is so high there is almost nowhere to put it any more.
The street has not been plowed. When the plow comes by, we will have several more feet. Well, maybe not several feet, but it will be heavy and icy and hard to clear.
Thank God we have power! It's supposed to drop to -8º F tonight. There are towns without power.
I doubt there will be school this upcoming week. I suspect the school district will just move the winter vacation up.
We'll carry on tomorrow. I figure we are about 1/4 done.
Happy Anniversary to PerfumedLady and the Mr.!

RHM, so glad you got your perfume from the "helpful" but forgetful elderly neighbor!!
I managed to get about 2 hours sleep before aches and pains woke me up. Ibuprofen, a snack and some tea, and soon I'll try hitting the sack again.
The plow finally went by a half hour ago, so I expect there is more mess than ever to shovel, but I'm going to see if my daughter's school friend who lives around the corner wants to earn a bit of money shoveling with us! We've hired him before to help with yard jobs that required a bit of muscle.
