It's Official

I have a half share in a big snow blower, which is sitting in my garage at this very moment.  (I'm sharing with some neighbors, which is great, let me say.)

I guess I really am a midwesterner now.

Also, I had a conversation this morning about forcing bulbs.



  1. Ishda! I haven't heard Norwegian phrases in years. Brings back memories of visiting my family in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Up here the dominant Scandinavian culture is Finnish.

    We own our own snowblower and more shovels than you can shake a snowy branch at. Winter is coming. Good to know that you're ready!

  2. I've worn out a bunch of shovels, but this is my first snowblower! and it's a two stroke one, so that should be good! And, best of all, my neighbor found it (used) and checked it out to make sure it works.

  3. Congratulations on your new addition to the family! I am blessed to have a next-door neighbor who apparently thinks it's fun to snow-blow my half of the driveway as well as his and to clear the front walk, which makes my shoveling labors quite manageable. But he's also 70, and it has occurred to me that at some point I may need to learn how to blow snow myself.
