100 Days of Happiness (71/100)

The Blizzard of 2016 is underway!  The snow started last night about 730p with flurries floating in the air as Peter and I drove our cars to the station to fill up on gas.  The flakes in the night sky were pretty — THEN!  That was a little over 12 hours ago — things have changed!


Now, they have met up with zillions of their friends and a little over 12 hours later — we are getting buried in New Jersey.  The forecast is that it will snow A-L-L  D-A-Y!   This storm will blow outta here around 230am Sunday morning.  I let Jewel outside to pee through the garage this morning.  She fought her way over the snow-laden paved driveway to the yard.  As soon as the ground changed to grass below her feet, the poor old girl fell down…..like a KID, minus the snowsuit.

After ‘the business’ was done, I dried her off with a towel, esp those precious paws… and we made it safely back inside — with an assist for Jewel from Dad on the garage stairs.  Hey — we all need an assist now and then.

So — Blizzard On, Mother Nature.  We are safely home with many blessings:

  • Hot Tea!…….bread, milk, eggs, t.p.
  • A warm fire in the fireplace
  • family members safe and sound
  • Jewel sleeping on her dog bed, with dry paws 🙂
  • Peter’s snow blower is gassed-up and ready
  • And I’m …nursing my cold wrapped in my favorite, raggedy old “Linus” sweater  🙂

A happy Saturday, East Coast January style!  #100happydays (71/100)

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
