more participants at Susanne at Living to tell the Story.
1. Because we are still stuck in the snow, I couldn't do anything special.
2. On one snow free moment I managed to put these little lights in our hedge. I am the only one who has some outside decorations, if you can call this so. But it looks nice. Nobody else in our street did anything because of the snow.
3. I had to go out for Christmas shopping, not for gifts but for food, the main streets were almost snow free but the parkings were full of snow and ice so I got promptly stuck and couldn't move neither forwards nor backwards. No men had ventured outside for shopping and had preferred to leave this to their dear wives, so two ladies pushed me and I could drive home (without stopping) and arrived still alive and without a damaged car.
4. I also cleaned our rather long entrance way to the house door, as it became quiet dangerous and rather impossible to walk on there unless you put on skis. Of course nobody has a snow blower here, it is the first winter since ages that we have that much snow and for such a long time.
This gives you an idea how it looks like, this time Mr. G. got stuck when he came back and I too just in front of our garage. We finally managed by pushing each other, and when we had finished our neighbor got stuck and we had to push her too ! Of course nobody has winter tires because we never needed them.
Finally came a truck with salt throw it on the street, which makes it even worse, because they should first push the snow away. I really wonder why people want to discover if we can live on mars or the moon when they are not even able to handle what is going on on earth !
The rest of my time I spent with wrapping Christmas gifts, watching TV, chatting on the phone and blogging of course !
And this afternoon we are driving to Amsterdam to celebrate Christmas with our son and family. If ever you see a big snow ball on TV which blocks the highway to Amsterdam then it's me and Mr.G. in the car stuck in the snow !
To all of you !
