*A Favourite Colour Combination*

This has been such a strange week... with the kids being off school for so many days (they had a 5 day weekend), I admit to being totally confused as to what day it is! It certainly doesn't feel like a Thursday, but that's what the calendar is telling me.

I spent a good 40 minutes shoveling the driveway last night. I should have done it earlier in the day when it was colder as it warmed up in the evening to just above freezing and the snow started to melt and got really heavy! And of course, we had driven on the driveway a few times during the day so I had to use the scraper to get the packed snow off the driveway.

It was definitely a good workout... my back and right arm are both a little stiff this morning.

Apparently our temperatures are warming up or the next few days... and I am hopeful that a lot of this early white stuff will be gone. News reports tell us that we got a full month worth of snow in two days. Blech

This card is a complete rip-off of a card that Tracy sent me a few months ago... Her card is up on my inspiration wall... and the other day it came down so I could totally copy it LOL! I needed to make a thank you card for the Crazy4Challenges challenge this week... C4C6
