Snow storm Izzy dropped about eight inches of snow on us Sunday afternoon and evening.
Mr. Aitch used the snowblower on most of the driveway and then we both shoveled what the snow plow left at the bottom of the driveway. It was heavy and compacted with a crusty layer on top.
Mr. Aitch commented to the neighbor across the street that he would hire her three kids (ages 12, 9, and 5) to shovel our snow in a year or two. Her comment was that they didn’t want to help her shovel their driveway. Um, excuse me? We didn’t have a choice when I was a kid as to whether or not we “wanted” to shovel snow. With only one shovel in our house all of us had to take turns clearing off the driveway and sidewalk.
It’s been busy around here lately. Cleaning and getting rid of stuff. Every year our development has a community yard sale and last weekend was it. Last year was the first time I participated in several years. Too much work for very little return.
Last year Mr. Aitch and I hauled all our leftover stuff/junk to the basement where it sat all winter.
My neighbor asked me if I wanted her to add my things to hers and she would take care of the setting up and selling. I told her to keep any money from my sales.
She insisted that I keep my money. I made a grand total of…
Not a great day for an outside yard sale. The weather consisted of clouds, sun, sprinkles, thunder, rain, and humidity. Lots of humidity.
Late in the afternoon another thunderstorm rolled through and left us not one but a double rainbow!
Not a bad photo using my iPad! The colors did get more brilliant but the top one disappeared. Did you know the colors are inverted in the top double rainbow?
