You may recall that my snowshoes were being touched up on the kitchen floor just yesterday. But today they were put back into service. Horray!
Actually, the day began once again, with snowblowing the driveway. It was really difficult as the snow was wet and heavy. I had to do most of the bottom by hand, and spent an hour and a half working on it all. And that was before breakfast! But a couple of those cranberry-pumpkin muffins and a pot of coffee fixed me right up, and there were no naps taken today.
By mid afternoon, I just had to go outside, despite the wind and falling temperatures. My pulled muscle is much better, but I wasn't sure how much snowshoeing I could do. Sure enough, in the deep, unbroken snow, it was complaining. I had hoped to go around my shortest loop twice, but we only made it once. Maggie really wanted to go out, but she was happy enough to come back inside, too.
The sky was really interesting with dark clouds and the beginning of pink tones, even at 4 pm! The pink could be seen in every direction except to the south.
Here's the back side of our house. Don't all come hunting me down now! I think tomorrow is going to be really similar to today. Maybe the wind won't fill today's tracks and I'll be able to walk farther.
