Shovels are unthawed, but the driveway isn’t. Can’t budge the sleet that thawed slightly, then refroze into a jagged, lumpy, sleet sheet. So I’m sitting in a sunbeam, drinking a mid-morning cuppa (two bags to the cup on this one to get the desired sharpness) and letting the sun soften things outside a bit, hopefully.

We call those sun puddles. When the rays come inside the cat, dog and I rush to sit in the perfect sunny spot!

Sun puddles. I like that!

We only got a little ice that turned to sleet. The roads are pretty good shape. So we dodge this one.

I do wish we had some sun puddles to fight the cats over. Nothing but gray here.

Get out the ice pick lol

We are waiting for someone to come plow the driveway. Yay for Craigslist! I don’t have any interest in shoveling a double driveway with 18-24 inch drifts on it. :)

Hubby says the highways are okay-ish and we have been having sun off and on today but I figured it would still take me twice as long to get to work so since I don’t have to, I’m home. With tea and my mother who couldn’t make it home from work on Thursday. :)

Took till noon for the grooves to thaw enough we could get the truck out (unfortunately, no 4WD’s at this house). Main streets safe and dry; intersections to side streets are horrible-slippy-slushy. Not regretting the decision to burn a vacation day…I’m now a bit ahead on a writing project. Serendipity.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
