|Snow on the pussy willows|
I woke this morning to a rather intense snowstorm, lots of flakes coming down, and the temperature just above freezing. It's many hours later, but the temperature has only come up a few degrees. I walked to the bus on pristine snow, and it was quite lovely. But coming home was another matter altogether. Although the streets weren't clear, only a few places seemed slippery, but the melting snow made the necessity to wade through icy water not a fun activity. It will be another sloppy mess tomorrow, too, probably.
I went to the coffee shop and enjoyed a good Americano, as usual, and then I decided to ask John to drive me to the Senior Center to attend the Zumba class. Because of the weather, the usual 25 attendees had shrunk to 6. It was actually more fun, because I could see the instructor so much better. Anyway, I had a good time, until I had to walk home in the slush. I entertained myself by thinking of expletives to keep my mind occupied.
I got a call from the hearing office that my hearing aids have arrived. They will be fitted for me on Friday, and then I'll have two months to decide if I like them or not. You'll be finding out about my purchase and how I feel about it in the future, I'm sure.
Sloppy wet snow is annoying but better than having ice under there. Glad you made your Zumba class. :)ReplyDelete
You got a "laugh out loud" from me for the expletives.ReplyDelete
It was snowing all day here.ReplyDelete
Slush isn’t fun. We’ve just had another dumping, but it is starting to get a bit slushy too. We should see a fairly big change over the next month.ReplyDelete
I prefer sloppy messes, it gives me a good reason to stay indoors and hibernate. Like most of your Zumba class. 🙂 Good luck on Friday, DJan...ReplyDelete
Be sure and try the hearing aids outside and on a hike. You'll hear birds you haven't heard in years most likely. (I have a hearing aid in one ear and a cochlear implant for the other.) I could HEAR my grandcat scratching her post, not just see her do it. Linda in louder KansasReplyDelete
Well as usual , you are out there living life to the fullest no matter what the weather is.ReplyDelete
No matter what the weather you make the most of your day. Slush isn't great but then it is a whole lot safer than ice.ReplyDelete
We are having such blustery days and nights here and periods of intense rain. It is a rather nice change. Soon, you will have your glorious Seattle weather to hike in and enjoy.ReplyDelete
Coffee at a coffee shop on a cold wet day sounds great. And I'll be waiting to hear how those hearing aids are doing.ReplyDelete
Walking in the slush is no fun, but you had a nice time with John and the Zumba workout.ReplyDelete
You got some real pretty snow!ReplyDelete
Slush is no fun and dangerously slippery too. I miss going to zumba. It was great just walking down to our rec center, but our teacher moved to ... yup... Seattle.ReplyDelete
