This past weekend we went to Moncton for my pre-birthday celebration with the NB side of the family.
Quarter century here I come!
|It looks like Jetty is waving and I'm giving the peace sign, but really we are showing that it's my 25th birthday celebration!|
Check me out in the parka!
Mom and Jetty laughed from inside while I slowly made my way through the hip-high snow. (Jetty had tonnes of classwork to do so he couldn't come out to help.)
Trying to get up the stairs was a challenge. At one point I tried to shovel a bit away to get a good step, but ended up dumping it at myself and falling over backwards.
But I made it!
|Don't be fooled here- this is after I started. The snow in the middle of the deck was about 3-4 feet high!|
And after some power shoveling I cleared off the deck! (Erica I took down the snow for you! Melanie - 1, Snow- 0...Erica had some snow issues the other day and the snow won!)
My victory smile was short lived because I actually felt more like...
I headed back around the house the way I came. I wasn't about to just walk in the back door. I wanted to show the snow who's boss.
I'm feeling the burn this morning...who needs a gym membership in the winter when you live in Canada Eh?
