18 degrees

A lot of that white stuff fell last night and is still falling this morning. I need to go out and shovel it now. It seems kind of funny to do that since I am on doctor ordered work restrictions due to my back injury. I am working only half days until Friday. Yes, I finally went to the doctor on Monday afternoon as a result of too much peer pressure at work. I wouldn't recommend coming to work at a hospital in obvious pain - you do not get sympathy - you get a lot of "what the hell are you doing?" and "did you see your physician?" etc. It is OK, it is good.

I better get out there and shovel. Have a good day everyone.

"Never talk down to an alcoholic from any moral or spiritual hilltop; simply lay out the kit of spiritual tools for his inspection. Show him how they worked with you. Offer him friendship and fellowship. Tell him that if he wants to get well you will do anything to help." -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 95

My how your porch has changed! I love snow -- the more the better -- it's the cold I am too old for :)
Be careful out there, MC ;)
Peace,

That pic looks so serene, it brings warmth to my soul. Cheezy as that sounds but it is the truth.

Good for you going to the doc, now who will be the "slave" for you MC? Perhaps it could be a commitment for someone in program. :)

OK. What the hell are you doing?
I gotta fill for your co-workers when they are not looking. Take care of your back. Back surgery is nasty stuff. I used to practice it on piggies. Ortho surgery is nasty!!!! Hammers, drills, chisels.....Awful!

PUT DOWN THE SHOVEL MC AND NOBODY WILL GET HURT...LOL
Isn't there some kid on the block you can hire to shovel for you?
Take it easy my friend...

Back injury ... shovelling snow ... back injury ... shovelling snow.

What's wrong with this picture?

Hmmm what did Scarlet say to Melanie in Gone With The Wind? (oops, typed gone with the WINE first time round!!!) Something like, 'For goodness' sake, get back to bed Melanie Wilkes or you'll never be well enough to do anything!'

My turn to tell you off now! LOL!

Aawoken, yes, I already have three fused vertebrae (C4-C6).. it is gruesome.

DFD - you crack me up! And you are correct, I deserved that!

This snow is beautiful and we needed the moisture considering it being so dry lately. I'm glad I live in an apartment and shoveling doesn't have to be my job, yet. I made it into work today although the snow and ice scare me, but I applied what I learned in the program was to face my fears. My mom offered to drive me to work but I decided to do it myself since my mother won't be here forever to drive me but she was proud that I did it. It wasn't too bad and I was lucky that I did not have far to go. Keep warm and many hugs.
Karen :-)

Wow, it is supposed to be in the 60's in CT today. I can't handle even thinking about snow right now.

NMAMFQLMSH said...

WOW! That is an awesome picture but please keep the snow (that's a four letter word in my book) out there. Don't be shoveling. I love you MC.
