|Sissi wants more snow like this|
Yesterday I raked the leaves from the lawn onto the path. Now I have to get them from the path onto the back garden. This may be easier – I will try the leaf blower which mulches the leaves.
It blows much better than it sucks. This will also be my snow blower if we get light fluffy snow – but we will probably get wet sticky snow that I will have to shovel off the deck and paths.
So far we have escaped almost unscathed as other parts of the USA have been buried under mountains of snow. But I am sure our time will come.
Did I mention that we are going to Alaska after Christmas this year? We are arriving in Anchorage and then taking the train from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Then we get an SUV and tootle about for about six days. This is the type of stuff we do in winter.
I am finally starting to do the multitude of chores that have been piling up since I became incapacitated. Of course I am digging about in the kitty litter again and I must say it’s good to be back. When you have a choice between doing kitty litter or being dead I will take kitty litter every time.
