One little snafu thrown into our day was that our Internet service was down all day . . . and just came back on about 30 minutes ago. I'm thinking it's not good when I realize how much we use the computer during a day's time. This, of course, becomes very evident when you can't use it.
Granddog Tucker was out helping Papa Pea do some work in the yard when he (that would be Tucker) barked at the back door to be let in which I did. However, I failed to let my dear husband know I had done so and same dear husband spent a bit of time hiking all over the acreage looking for Tucker thinking he had taken himself for a little walk in the woods. Given the possible presence of one or more wolves roaming about, this would not have been a good situation. I will not eleaborate on the conversation between us when my better half came in the house to share his concern regarding Tucker being missing only to find that I had him in the house with me.
The day seemed to be filled with little irritating thorns of the same kind all the way through our dinner . . . which I was about to put on the table, assuming I had communicated to Papa Pea I was doing so, only to have him disappear somewhere outside for better than a half hour.
Get the drift? Yeah, just one of those days.

The good news (for us snow lovers) is that we got at least 8" of heavy, wet snow late yesterday afternoon/early evening in the span of four hours. And for snow that is that heavy to be blown into impressive drifts, you know we had some strong winds along with the snow.
So we had a lot of snow moving to do today. Bless our daughter and her honkin' big snowplow, now that she is living much closer to us, we can borrow her rig and her expert services. Papa Pea did a small amount of clearing with the plow this morning and then Chicken Mama (snow plower extraordinaire) did the whole driveway and front and back work areas after she got off work tonight.
Dear hubby and I did our fair share of shoveling by hand (he more than me) so got our daily exercise and fresh air.
Sorry I neglected to get any pictures. (The way the day went if I had taken my camera out I probably would have lost it in the snow.) Our driveway had a whole new look to it with trees on each side so heavily laden with snow that some areas took on an almost tunnel-like look.
Well, it's late enough now into the evening that one of us (that not being me) is ready for bed and sitting in the living room for some wind-down reading time. Time for me to be doing the same.
