Winter Wonderland

FINALLY it looks and feels like a Minnesota winter….well sort of.  After watching the weather change all night, first it rained, then it sleeted, then it started snowing.  I was terrified to drive home from work knowing my 18 minute commute would be MUCH longer….

and exactly 59 minutes later I pulled into this

If you all remember this post you will understand why I wasn’t surprised to find a perfectly snowblown (is that the right suffix?) driveway.  Of course Bob got up early so he could use his new toy and clear the driveway! I was so thankful because after slipping, sliding, and white-knuckled driving for 59 minutes the last thing I wanted to deal with was getting stuck in the driveway!

It was so gorgeous in our front yard I had to snap a few pictures to remind myself of why I live in Minnesota.

The temperature is warming up…so I am sure when I wake up this afternoon most of the snow will have melted…hopefully making my drive BACK into work tonight a little bit easier!

With the storm continuing outside….I am content cuddled up in bed reading this

Lone Wolf by: Jodi Picoult

The book came out yesterday and I am about halfway through…I have really enjoyed reading Jodi Picoult’s books and have looked forward to them coming out each year but have been a little disappointed with her past few….but I will write more after I finish as I haven’t fully made up my mind about how I feel about this new one….
