Cheers to 2008

First, I’d like to start by wishing all my blog readers a very happy new year. I truly hope that this coming year is going to be fabulous for everyone.

I started to do a year in review post, but essentially it looked like this…

– I got a degree
– I didn’t get a bunch of jobs
– I ranted about a few things
– I could have blogged a bit more
– And I didn’t get nearly enough exercise (either physically or creatively).

Here’s to a more productive 2008. Moving on….

It seems Mother Nature is doing her best to see about the physical exercise thing. New Years’ Eve saw a lovely dump of snow in Charlottetown…

I’ve marked a few things worth note…

First, my van is actually green, not white…. and is several inches shorter… that’s just a small snow bank on the roof.

Second, the snow bank to the right of the picture is my wicker furniture that should be in the shed in the background, but never quite made it there this fall. Given the amount of snow that they are now beneath, I’m guessing they will not be in great shape come spring.

And last but not least, that few inches of space between the snow bank and the top of the deck…. That’s not there anymore. Because today, on what would have been my first day back to work after the holiday, was a snow day. Yes, today we got a brand new snow storm on top of the New Year’s Eve snow, so the snow bank now meets or exceeds the top of the deck.

So, you see, with all the shovelling this winter seems to be bringing, I’m already off to a flying start on my moto to do more in 2008. So, thank you Mother Nature. I did need the exercise. But you can knock it the heck off now.

    Gorgeous snow – we only got an inch – enough to make driving fun but not really enough to play with. Of couse, it’s 121 degrees F here anyway, so I’M not going out.
    BTW, I’ve tagged you for a meme, so you can take a break from shoveling.

    OK I meant TWELVE degrees, not 121.

    The snow is beautiful! Don’t send it my way, though. 🙂
