Opportunities February 16, 2016 by LB Having the opportunity to take a walk in this, is worth having the “opportunity” to do this once the storm has passed and the snow has begun to melt.

Nice B&W photo, Laurie, and I love the setting of your home in the woods 🙂
Thanks! Despite the millions of leaves each fall, and the work out I get with shoveling each winter (oh, my muscles are letting me hear from them today), I LOVE living in the woods.
That’s a lot of shoveling Laurie but as you say a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the snowy sunshine after the hard work!
My “shoveling” muscles are definitely letting me know what they got a workout yesterday! 🙂
I’m not sure whether to feel deprived or not – I’ve never had the opportunity to shovel snow ………… And there is your beautiful home and I can just glimpse the big red truck in the carport. What memories! 🙂 xo
Such great memories!
While the shoveling is a lot of work, I never mind it when the sun is bright and the day is beautiful. Yesterday, at least 100 Robins landed in the trees and on the ground where I was shoveling. They were enjoying the newly exposed Hawthorn Berries. I wish I’d been able to catch a photo!
100 Robins!! Wow!! Maybe next time 🙂
Beautiful images Laurie and its about time you got that long driveway shoveled, LOL 🙂 Pauline don’t feel deprived you are not missing anything by not being able to shovel snow. I would compare it to trying to vacuum the beach 🙂
Now THAT would be a never ending job, for sure!
I can hear the crunching of the snow in your pictures. Beautiful setting where your home is. Glad to see you made the most of your day.
The sun shone brightly and the sky was so blue, and as I was shoveling, at least 100 Robins landed in the trees and on the ground where I was shoveling. They were enjoying the newly exposed Hawthorn Berries. I wish I’d been able to catch a photo!
Oh me too! What a thing to see. So glad you made the most of it.
Love the shovel. There’s something nice about seeing tools that have just been or are in process of being used.
I love that comment, Lisa. I agree!
Having seen the size of your driveway, I’m not going to complain about shovelling mine anymore. Yikes!
and my shoveling muscles are definitely letting me know today that they got a work out yesterday!
I can imagine!!
Good trade…. 🙂
Now, see–if you lived up north, you could justify a snowblower for that long driveway!
My neighbor has one and was kind enough to work through the mass of snow created by the snow plows! Phew!
It’s beautiful, Laurie. I too have fond memories when I look at your house and your truck. It brings joy in ways I couldn’t have imagined a year ago.
That is one long driveway! I hope your sore muscles relax soon. xo
I’ll tell ya, it took until Saturday to really feel the relaxation of one of my back muscles. I just kept laughing at myself (whilst using ibuprofen and heat) for thinking I’m invincible 🙂
I think we’re all guilty of that. I’m glad the heat and ibuprofen did there job.
Yup, it’s shovel time 😀
We’ve had a close relationship the past few weeks!
“Me and my shovel, walking down the avenue”
I especially like the subtlety of the B&W capture. You beautifully resisted the urge to boost the contrast. Well done. 🙂
Thanks for noticing. I really wanted to retain the softness. It was so appealing
Oh yes, good trade. I do love shoveling snow. Particularly on a day like what you’ve got there, where the sun comes out and melts what is left. New England was great for brilliant sunny days after big snowstorms when I lived there. Your house is lovely, up the hill in the trees. My, it must be a welcome sight in every season, to come home from wherever you have been and begin heading up the driveway.
It really is a beautiful piece of property. In fact, the house is bigger than I need, but I love the property too much to leave. I’m so fortunate to be able to sit outside on either the front or back porch, and feel such privacy, even though I’m right in the middle of town.
By the way, I surely did laugh at your 8 Tips for Men in terms of posting photos 🙂
I can’t tell you are in town at all with that place! You are right about being fortunate to be there. That would be my ideal too: a gorgeous piece of land in town. But in Portland, I’d have to be a millionaire to afford it.
Glad you like the 8 Tips. Maybe I should blog it. I’ve been building that one in my mind for a month. You would not believe the ridiculous photos that I see. I can’t compare to what women put up, but I do know that I spend half my time just shaking my head in disbelief when I look at the photos.
It’s worth the trade-off. Lovely first photo
I’m going to save these photos for when the heat arrives. I love winter but can no longer shovel. I miss snow so much. We had so much the last year I lived in it, we couldn’t get out. Called a guy with a backhoe. 🙂
