I'm the guest author today at Shades of the Departed! I was very flattered to be asked. The focus there is on photography and is also home of the monthly photography carnival, Smile for the Camera. Be sure to check it out.
I had an appointment to get my stitches out this morning so snow did not fit in well with my plans! John had go to out and shovel so I could get to the car. He had cleaned the steps up well but they were still a little slick. The ramp at the doctors office hadn't been cleared at all. There was only about an inch of snow there. Of course I slipped but manged to grab the railing rather than fall.
The appointment went well. The stitches are out and I now have no bandage, just a compression stocking. Of course If I'd known that I would have taken a sock to the appointment. A walking boot is a poor substitute for a winter boot being open at the toe and all. I can now start walking on the heel and I'm getting around much better. John no longer will have to wait on me whenever I want something. He wasn't taking any chances on my hurting myself so when we left the office he took me to the car in a wheelchair. Both embarrassing and a relief. I did say something to my doctor and the office staff was trying to hunt up a shovel as we were leaving.
The district I work for closed early today but I'm not really sure why. They are predicting that the storm will intensify and we may have thunder snow near the lake but when we went through town this morning they hadn't gotten all that much yet. John has to get the boys off the bus this afternoon so I'm keeping an eye on the closing list for their district, so far it it doesn't look like they're going to close early and Angie said the sun was out there at noon.
Not much has been happening here. I've been transcribing letters and driving John nuts. I'm looking forward to being able to do more over the next couple of weeks. I suspect that my bulbs aren't going to get planted after all.
