I figured the ice on the apron will make it difficult for him to get traction to get to me and then to back up to drive out...so this morning I bundled up and wore Mr. Wonderful's chicken/pig boots and tried to shovel the apron to get some clear spots for him. Here you see what I was able to get done.
There on the left is the double garage door...I got about 4-5 feet scraped. The rest is a solid sheet of ice - you can see the tire marks from Friday..there's no scraping that yet.
Then I decided that maybe I should try to do the front walk cause if he can't get near enough on the apron side, he can drive straight on the drive and pick me up at the end of the walk...so I trudged thru the house and cleared that. There was no traffic on it since before the snow so it came off relatively easy - well, easy for some. I'm so stinkin' out of shape that I need a nap now that that's done.
We've got a bit of sun till nearly 2 o'clock today so maybe some more melting will be accomplished, in spite of the temps getting only near 22 degrees. Then we are to expect a bit of snow from 3:00 till about 7:00...and, of course, falling temps. I'm really done with winter!
I spent the day sewing yesterday. Made a little table runner using a new mini tumbler template. It's not quilted yet but I think I might use my embroidery machine to embroider swirls or something in those long white strips between the coloured stripes.
Well, I've got a few more chores to do (including getting the tax stuff ready to mail off to the accountant tomorrow) and then I'm rewarding myself with knitting, or maybe some more sewing...or both.
Thanks for stopping by.
