Day 128: Thankful Today for a Dry Shovel
Last winter was so miserable I just can't say I am thankful enough for how things have been this winter. Today was a beautiful day. The sun was shining. I left the wool coat at home and wore a lined jacket with a scarf. But most importantly my shovel was dry. The scene above was what it looked like January of 2011. Every morning I had the same routine. I bundled up, trudged out to the car, and dug it out while it warmed for the ride to work. But, in January of 2012 I have only pulled out the shovel once. Tomorrow will be in the 50's and an umbrella will be needed instead of a shovel.
