This is exactly how I felt when I saw the snow on Friday morning.  I thought winter was over.  Well, technically it wasn't over until 6:45 p.m., but still.  We had been having such nice warm weather.  It didn't come as a surprise since we had been hearing all the predictions, but I didn't expect such a heavy wet snowfall.  

I cleared off my car to go to work and before I got around it, the snow had covered it up again.  I drove with the back window blocked and the heater on to melt it (which it did after about 1/2 mile).  There were almost no cars on the street which made it better to drive.

I had to stop at the bank for work and then I headed over to the Philly Pretzel Factory and got some soft pretzels to take to work.  I hadn't had time for breakfast so this was a good deal.

I took my first dose of medicine on Friday morning.  I had no idea I would have such a dramatic reaction to it.  The antibiotic must have attacked all the bacteria in my stomach because I just blew up.  I was burping all day which made it difficult to do my job.  I was also running to the bathroom.  Good thing I wasn't on the desk very much.  But even so I had to ask Angela to cover for me while I ran.

Mid morning I looked out the library's side door and the snow was still coming down.

The library was practically empty most of the day.  It was so quiet.  Because there was absolutely no noise, the few people who came in were whispering.  They didn't have to; they could have talked in a normal voice.  I thought that was a cool sociological experiment.

At 4:30 p.m. the snow was still coming down.  I took this video from the workroom.  This is out of the window behind my desk.

I had to clear off the car again before I left.  It was completely snowed in.  The guard was still there and he helped me.  That was nice.

I wasn't feeling well, so when I got home I laid down on the sofa and went right to sleep.  Joe woke me up around 8:00 p.m. and asked what I was doing for dinner.  He had gotten some fish out for me, but I was just feeling too awful to cook.  So Joe made me a peanut butter sandwich and he had some left over pizza.  Then I went back to sleep.  I just felt so awful.

Saturday not only did I feel better, but most of the snow was gone.  It went up to 50*.  I didn't even have to shovel the sidewalk.

I slept or laid on the sofa watching TV most of the day.  I felt so lazy but Joe said I've been sick so what did I expect.  Sometimes you just have to take a day off.  I did get up and go to Choir practice though.  We are coming along.  I get mixed up, though, and start singing the tenor line instead of the alto.  I need to practice a lot this week.

It's still pretty early, so I think I will go back to bed for a couple of hours before getting up for church.  I'll be back later with a Sunday Praise for you.



  1. As much as I like snow, I wasn't happy with this. I shoveled our sidewalk & that of our neighbors and our backyard (dogs need a place to piddle!). It seemed in no time it was covered again! Hubby Russ called & told me to "take it easy,relax, He'd do it when he got home". Isn't he a keeper? I agree with Joe;enjoy a nap!

  2. I am tired of all the winter weather this year, too. Enough already!!!
    I am glad you are feeling better, Kathy. Hope all the "yuck" is worked out of your system by now. Have a great Sunday- xo Diana

  3. Hi Kathy....
    Glad you are feeling fun being yucky...:o(
    This week is up and down weather wise....Hang in there....
    Good weather just around the corner....
    Enjoy your week ahead...
    Linda :o)

  4. I hope you're all over your oopsies and that Spring is really coming to your area.

    We've been shirtsleeves (and shorts for me, of course, around the house and out to mailbox and garbage bin), and had two windows open over the table upstairs for a sunny brunch all together yesterday.

    Stay warm,


    ps I, too, love that little sociological experiment. Occasionally in conversation I lower and lower my voice, especially in crowds, just to see if my companion will follow me toward a whisper. Almost always does. Except for Chris, of course---he's so outgoing and cheery, he just keeps talking away, and cannot hear me well in the lower ranges, anyway. Must go see to getting us some lunch.

    pps I've begun another little blog---a composite and made up little town way down South. They're quiet little people, just going about their plain little days, with quirks and personalities each her own. The link's in today's LT blog. I hope you'll drop in sometime to get acquainted with my Paxton People--I love when you visit. r

    1. Absolutely I will visit your new blot. Heading over there noe.

  5. Hugs to you dear Kathy. I hate to think about you being sick and having to go to work not feeling well....I have done that very thing before..That blasted snow didn't help you any. Maybe our weather will straighten out soon. We are to have rain for the next four days from what the Indy Star is predicting. Bummer. Blessings to you and your Joe, xoxo,Susie

  6. We just talked to Phil's dad that lives close to Pittsburgh today and they had 6 inches of snow on Friday but just a few inches now, as it's packed down. Amazing how much snow the east coast has got this winter. I'm just getting over a cold and now my daughter has the same thing. Sigh! Hope you get your med figured out...glad it worked but hopefully your stomach won't rebel too much. Eat a few spoonfuls of yogurt that has the active bacteria in it will help you from having the runs! It works. Thanks for sharing the photos!

  7. We had about four inches when all was said and done last Friday! I had a bridal shower brunch to go to on Saturday, but it was fine, roads all clear and it was in the upper forties. Hope you are feeling better, Kathy.
