Secretly Love to Shovel

So, I secretly love to shovel.  I like the excuse to be outside.  It feels good to be outside and moving.  It’s a great workout.  You see and visit with your neighbors—you help each other out.  I’m not always a fan of shoveling when the snow decides to fall, but a weekend snowstorm makes it a little less stressful, even if it requires seven hours of shoveling and snow blowing.
In fairness, that’s why I can say I love shoveling right now.  For this storm we borrowed a snow blower.  Turns out snow blowers are very useful tools and I might be ready to modernize a bit. Even with a snow blower we will still have parts of our walkways that need shoveling and it turns out my forearms are really sore and I think that is from snow blowing.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
