Driveways

I have spent 95% of my time this past week indoors. Yes, I went food shopping and to a weekend seminar on soil science and to a play and out to dinner on Valentine's weekend, BUT I really have been mostly indoors in front of the computer or the TV or an open book. 

I did do some running on the elliptical so my guilt would not totally depress me, but mostly I have been hiding. I do not like cold weather. I use it as an excuse to eat carbs, drink wine and bundle. NOT HEALTHY.  Yesterday after a large and wet snow storm I went out for a walk in my neighborhood and just to prove I can still walk in snow boots I took some photos to share. (By the way, temperature is now above 50F and it is raining like waterfall outside and the snow is ALL gone!)

The first two are photos of my neighbor's driveways; one family is in Florida!




 I caught a snowfall just from the branch as I passed another neighbor's house.



This neighbor does not live here and this small well-landscaped mansion is lonely.   (Not everyone in my neighborhood is a millionaire but we have a few tucked here and there.)

 When snowflakes started landing on the lens  and only wet mittens to wipe with I knew it was time for me to head back home.

I'll bet you feel much better after being out in the fresh air! Great photos.

Lovely and cold and if i lived with snow for any length of time, it would be hard to get me outdoors, too. Cold is painful!

Sorry you don't enjoy winter.

New snowfall is so lovely. Next day slush is the worst.

It is good news to know you were able to take a walk again.

Thanks...that's awfully good of you to bring snow to those of us who are suffering in 80 some degree heat.

And too my humor must not read as humor. Most folks didn't catch my smile with yesterday's blog. Darn.

beautiful photos. I love the flag in the one with the snowfall from the branch. I am not a fan of winter and have to make myself go out in it. I don't walk nearly as much in winter as I do in summer - but I do like the quiet of being outside after it snows. so peaceful...

Looks pretty there- I've shoveled a few times already.
