Reflecting on a Job Well-Done


Reflecting on a Job Well-Done

I swear, I've shoveled this walk to our front door at least 5 times this week! Once, last Friday evening, when I was trying~in vain, I might add~to knock snow off my azalea bushes. Twice last Saturday. Once on Wednesday, as our Blizzard Redux raged. Again yesterday morning, so I could get to the birdfeeder & replenish the robins.

Snapped this Scribe Self-Portrait at the height of the first storm last Saturday. As the sun comes out again today & continues to melt the mess we're in, I'll be reflecting on a job well-done. At least I didn't have to crawl out on the roof to fix the satellite dish, now, did I?

Hello!

Given the looming shortage of teachers, we put together a positive article for prospective teachers as well as those currently employed as teachers called: “100 Reasons To Be A Teacher.”

If you wouldn’t mind, could you share our article with your readers?

Please feel free to contact me at wndgraham AT gmail DOT com if you are interested.

Many thanks!

Such a cool picture! We've missed most of the snow so far but it's nice seeing everyone else's great pictures. Snow exhausts me. It means sledding and building snowmen and freezing my booty off to have fun with my fiance and his daughter. Great memories...but it makes me realize how out of shape I am!

Oh...and I have an award for you on my blog today!

Don't you all have some dogwoods that are all set to bloom in a few weeks? I bet you're looking forward to those days! This is a fun picture and truly shows how badly you all have been walloped in the past couple of weeks. Hopefully you all will thaw soon.

I do not miss having to shovel snow. Glad that Texas snow only falls briefly and rarely sticks. Wishing you the best during the melt.

Salt said...

Let me guess...you must live somewhere near where I do. :) That looks very much like my life over the past week. Man did we get hammered!

I've never been so glad to be back and work in my life!

Oh, I hate to shovel snow. Did it a lot in South Bend. How about a snow blower?

Is this winter breaking snow records? I don't think I have ever seen so many places get so much snow in one year before.

Paloma said...

It's Always Something Around Here said...

Love that picture! I am so over the shoveling and shoveling. My muscles ache.

I hope we are done with the snow this winter......but I fear not.

Jenn@ You know... that blog? said...

Just think of the amazingly toned muscles you've developed this week!

Great picture :D

Christina Lee said...

yikes-hard work!

CelticLady said...

Love the self picture. I am sure that we here in the northwoods will get a storm like this one of these days. We have a pretty mild winter. We have snow, but not as much as you do!!

Pamela said...

I'm loving the self portrait! Oh and the shoveling of the snow... #1 reason I now live in Florida!

missy said...

Rebecca said...

Great shot...I can relate!

miss jo said...

What a workout! Don't you feel like you're in some kind of weird reality weather show ?

Regina said...

How nice.
Great reflection!

Together We Save said...

Wow - that looks tough... we have never had enough snow to need a shovel.

Greyscale Territory said...

Amazing welter of snow happening here, but the reflection is like a statement that you will still soldier on and find beauty...like reflections!

knit1kids4 said...

Every time I shovel I think I working off some calories for another cookie! LOL!

Sarah said...

i'll bet there won't be a single person overweight after the snow is over.

Müge said...

Very nice and creative shot! Good luck with the snow :-)

awarewriter said...

Your photo says it all. Nice job. May as well grin and bear the snow and make the best of it with some creative photos. My eyeballs are hanging out tonight after a couple more rounds of shoveling. Now we've broken the all time record for snow in the area (Phila/South Jersey) and they're talking about another (mere 5 or 6 inches on Monday). I will never complain about cutting the grass ever again!

Serendipity said...

I'm very impressed that you managed to think of weekend reflection while dealing with all that snow!

Tara R. said...

You really do need a nice, warm beach vacation. Our sand even looks like snow.

Joe @ 20 To Life said...

That;s a great creative pic, I like it - the name suits it to a tee as well. Well done! :D
Happy Friday Follow!
