Thursday, or Thereabouts - March 13, 2014

I'd rather be...

It was -20C (-4F) first thing this morning and the world outside my door was all dressed up in brand new snow white, AGAIN. Spring has not just slipped back a little beneath the horizon but rather has done a nosedive.

Thursday, March 13, 2014.

The snow shovel was frozen to ground and the snowblower needed a boost from the electric starter to roar into life, but roar it did and my love and I finished the 'snow job' in time for me to get to the dentist. 
What was to be the semi-annual scrape and polish turned into a major repair job. So here I sit with an brilliant winter day outside and a Novocaine frozen face, thinking about the places I'd rather be.

I'd rather be...

  1. Wow! You sure have travelled far and wide.
    Mumbai, huh? So you have experienced 'incredible India'.
    I have been having dental issues and empathise with you.
    Here's hoping you winter woes give way to spring cheer really soon.
    Isnt China coming up too?
