Summer in Winter
That's a picture of our front covered stoop/veranda/porchy thing. Not much changes all that regularly here. I have no idea what is at the bottom of that brown bucket and that brush-like object on the ground is a boot scraper that gets wholly ignored (we prefer to come in from the muck, take a few turns around the house and then fling them off our feet in the direction of a white wall). And then there's that long handled thing supporting that black-coloured plastic scoop. It has leaned in that exact same position since I thought it would be a good idea to bring it up the hill from the woodshed back in November. Yes, that's right, while the east continues to shovel themselves ragged, we have had zilcho amounts of snow ALL YEAR. Well, we did actually have a light, inconsequential dusting one day - had to call in sick.
Now that it is officially Spring, I think it's safe for me to return the gravel shovel/ large animal pooper-scooper back to its den.
