First of all, thank you to all of you who sent kind wishes this week. My eye is healing nicely and another couple of weeks I can get my new prescription and finally see clearly again.
We have snow here in Portland. We don't get snow very often, or even every winter, so the city comes to a standstill when it happens. We have no equipment for clearing the roads and we don't even own snow shovels here so all we can do it sit and wait for it to melt. Temps have been in the low 20s and very windy so it feels even colder. Brr....The local news programs sure do love it!
Snow Day implies staying home and playing but no such luck for me. I have a lot on my plate right now so I worked remotely and that always feels like more work than working in the office - lol! It all works out in the end, though. Today felt like I worked on a Saturday so when Sunday gets here it will feel like a bonus day off. Seriously. That's is how easy I am to fool.
And this is the ugly side of the winter wonderland. The direction of the wind has filled the covered patio with snow. The husband lifted the lid on the barbecue and snow has even sifted inside. Luckily, snow never lasts long around here. We have one more day to go then Sunday will be rain and in the 40s again.
It isn't looking good for junking tomorrow...!
