Got the driveway finished this afternoon, and then went to Nederland.Ā  Yaaaaayyyy!Ā  It was warm today and snow was melting, so it took me only an hour or so to shovel the whole bottom half.


Driveway from the bend looking up to the house.


Driveway from the bend looking down to the road.

We hopped in the car and went to the Mountain People’s co-op for milk to make yogurt and some drinks and snacks for the kids (kombucha tea for me–yippee).Ā  We were delirious with our freedom and accidentally left the garage door open–oops!Ā  No mountain lions or bears in the house, thankfully.

And now…it’s snowing again. šŸ™‚

    Oh my! That is one serious driveway! You did that all by yourself in an hour?! Meting or not, that looks like quite the endeavor. Good job Mamma! You deserve that tea. Be well.

    Weeeeellllll…I would LIKE to say I did it myself in one hour. Actually Caleb and I both worked several hours on the first part, and I just finished up the last half in an hour or two.

    I will never complain about shoveling the sidewalk again. EVER. I should print out the photo of your driveway and post it by our snow shovel for the winter months to remind me of how “little” we have to shovel.

    Good work! That freedom must have felt nice.

    Keep that garage door closed lol!!!

    Oh, haha! I would be honored to have my driveway on your fridge. And yes, yes, I’ll keep that garage door closed. We don’t want to walk in on Mr. Coyote or Mrs. Lion.
