Caregiving: more ice chopping

Pictured I’m enjoying a coffee break during igloo construction or otherwise known as playing while chopping my back patio clear of ice and sleet. 


Finally finishing the driveway, paths needed to be to chop clear to the trash can bin and the bird feeder.


Sizeable blocks of ice enabled me to give my igloo a Stonehenge facade as pictured below …


As I dragged the facade into place I found myself chuckling over a scene from the film comedy classic “This Is Spinal Tap”, “I think that the problem may have been that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being crushed by a dwarf. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object. …” … Funny how we can remember movie dialogue at the strangest times.


Anyway, still chopping away from South Central Pennsylvania … and LOVING Winter finally arriving.


  1. I love the cannon!!  It makes me think of Valley Forge... and considering this is President's day...<grin>   BTW, igloos are cool!!    Happy chopping!!

  5. I love it! Thats alot of ice! :o) We got more snow then ice...Whew! You're so right on about remembering the dialogue from movies we've watched way too many times! Mine is "In Search Of The Holy Grail" LOL Love that Movie! lol
    Love that idea as well! :o)

  6. Glad to see you enjoying your favorite season. I think the igloo would be a bit uncomfortable but...   It has been very icy here in MD as well and I had a few days off from school which means I will be going to school very late in June. Take care.

  7. You look the part, the intrepid discoverer.  Never had enough ice to do that, really jealous.  Hope the coffee kept comming all day long.

    Smiling at the Valentine balloon, brilliant!! it's guaranteed to give anyone around you a warm chuckle too. with you and Patti on the socks, there're some wonderfull fluffy ones around at winter time, very soft and cosy.  They stop the draught that's fer sure. Rache
