After the Storm

This is what I woke up to this morning – thick snow and blue skies.

The snow was halfway up the window in the spare room, and I definitely wasn’t looking forward to shovelling my way out. Fortunately, I made it down my driveway no problem even without shovelling. Unfortunately, I did not have as much success going down my unploughed street.

This evening, I put some clothes in the dryer and the machine made such bad noises it literally frightened me. Thus, I donned my hunters and headed out to clear the vent area.

Unfortunately, even they could not protect me. Snow was up beyond the top of my boots. I sank into the fluffiness, later opting to climb over the deck banister rather than walk around it to get back inside.

Despite the cold and the wind, there is still beauty in the snow. Kingston remains a lovely place in my eyes.

Staying In

Oh snow. You have this ability to incapacitate people and cause them to hole up in their homes. At least, that’s what I’m doing tonight :) I made it out this morning for a supply call and came home to many inches of snow. About half an hour later – and with the help of some neighbours – my driveway was clear and my car found its way into the garage.

Hilariously enough, on the way home I decided to make the detour to pick up our next month’s book club read – Gillian Flynn’s gone girl. I hear good things about it so I’m excited to get started.

I made myself some quick and easy pasta with green beans, onions, chicken, and cherry tomatoes to accompany this book, and I am contemplating turning on some jazz fm.

Anyways, there you have it – my plans for this snowy evening. Stay safe, stay warm, and I’ll see you all in the morning.
