Hotdish ....

so since I had no wheels yesterday (on the day of rest -- and yes, I went to work) ... Jean picked me up and we went to the Catholic Daughters Hotdish and Salad Luncheon --- alas, by 12:15 they were OUT OF HOTDISH -- seriously -- out of HOTDISH.

those ladies have cornered the market on HOTDISH.  

so, we headed down the street to the Diamond Dust Bakery -- where Cheri and crew had tasty soup and sandwiches (and a cupcake) ...

the wheels came back late in the afternoon -- front wheel bearing ... under warranty (insert grin) and on the way home from Nicollet -- in the middle of no where my "low tire" pressure warning light started beeping and flashing ... Dad added air this morning ...

all in a day ...

the end

the end of the "normal" tax filing season

1453 hours in 107 days   so peeps that's an average of 13.57 hours per day
I'm pooped.  really pooped.

I just washed my truck
Hit up the local Shopko for paper towels, toilet paper and paper plates.

I need to be back in the early am -- CJ picking up my truck -- getting worked on -- the groan will be disappearing -- hopefully. 

I did manage to sneak in a hair cut this afternoon ... just had to walk a block or two ..

the weather forecast is frightful.  more white shit.

so peeps

  I think I worked my last Sunday for a while.

  We're dug out and working  .......

  Until the next blast ... let the melting begin -- there are heaps of piles of white stuff everywhere and I mean everywhere -- our yard looks like the snow globe exploded.

2018 Snow Day #10

didn't know I was snapping the cardinal in flight .. 

this damn squirrel worked hard to get at a treat ... he was digging around for over an hour 

Tom Turkey didn't like the weather either

I walked to the top of the hill -- life in a snow globe -- winds were picking back up and the sleet returned.  sleet/snert

yep, snow day #10 is almost over ... I left last night at 6:30 with work -- made it back to the office by 6:30 ... got the back up tape running and then worked until it finished at 11:00 .. home with another box of work and supplies and well, it's almost 9:00pm ... my box is done (or as done as it can get ) 

I've shoveled out the garage doors and front sidewalk -- elder #1 has cleared the driveway and made snow ridges to hold back any drifting this evening ...
a strong 10" so far ...

please Mother Nature -- bring me Spring ... 
I really need some heat.

another day in a snow globe

even the birds are tired of winter .. the endless winter ....
really slippery too ... 

it's time for the end of tax season -- we are almost out of toilet paper, paper towels and tissues -- so the end must be near ...
