I looked out the window hoping it were gone - 6" of new snow - aaack! I hate shoveling. Actually, don't mind the work, it's the boredom.

Our drive is 3 cars wide and 3 or 4 deep so using a shovel 18" wide - sob! Anyway, I usually plan my grocery list, a menu or my next weight loss regimen.

Luckily, neighbors stop by to chat as I slave away (bring your shovel next time:) - so, I lean on my shovel, visit and don't get work done.

The neighborhood dog streaks by with a grin on his face, "If she's so lazy, I'll pee on her light pole." And he does - with impunity.

Life is hard - sigh - - - - -

He said the nurses and all staff were so nice - we decided 80 Timb*ts would be a nice gesture of thanks. Bought a card, the TB's and off to the hospital we went. While there, planned to pick up his health care card, deposit and pay for his stay.

The staff was so chatty and friendly were forgot to pay our bill - yeah, that's an original one, Jean.

Anyway, tomorrow I'll try again.

Walked into the ladies room at the airport Monday - as another lady and I were washing our hands, a custodian came in, "What's that beautiful smell? Did someone spray a bathroom deodorizer?"

We both remained silent for a few moments and then she zeroed in on me, "It's you, your cologne. It wonderful." She came up to me and sniffed. "May I see the bottle? I want to buy some."

I told her it was Jean - Louis Scherrer but, sorry, I don't carry it on me. Her face fell when I told her she could get it online or for sure in the States. Holt Renfrew (in our city) no longer carries it.

I walked away smiling, deodorizer or cologne? No matter, she liked it:)

Lost is Found

Don't you hate it when you lose something? Takes forever to find some of the things.

I was lying on my back thinking about the day ahead. My hand found a barrette in bed, then a pen on top the bed! What else? Oh, yes, after 3 years, I found my hipbones!!!

Oh happy day - they have been missing for a long while - - -

Dear God,

I realize we need water for the summer - couldn't You just dump a bunch in the lakes and rivers and reservoirs? Then we would have "instant" water and I wouldn't need to "shovel the water" first.

Although, maybe You looked at my hips and decided shoveling was in order - - -

Did You realize we had 6" today and it's only 5:30pm? I see another shovel job coming up around 9 pm if it continues.
