WARNING for those living in cold, winter climates

Saturday, January 24, 2015

This picture has absolutely NOTHING to do with this blog. But here is angry cat (also known as Prim) on Christmas morning... she had a blast playing in wrapping paper. Cats are awesome.

Anyway... onto much more serious matters. My warning for the day :

If your driveway is covered in ice, before 7+ inches of snow falls over night... and you decide to go out and shovel... but not just shovel, oh no. I'm sure you want to put your DANCE playlist on your phone so you have some fun music to inspire you to bend, lift, throw over and over.... and while you are listening and shoveling, the song "Come get it bae" by Pharrell comes on (Now here is the warming!)... DO NOT TRY TO DANCE AND SHOVEL at the same time. Nope. Not when there is ice underneath.

Why? you ask.
You'll go down.

Yep! I did. But let me tell you - it was sooooo worth it!!!!

Dance & move & groove today my friends!!!!! And Miss Button - I LOVE your suggestion for everyone to gather here in front of the fire & I most certainly would serve chocolate martinis for all (or diet hot chocolate for those not wanting to imbibe) ... however, when we all got up to dance you MOST CERTAINLY would join us!!! Happy Saturday, y'all!

    I love the cat picture. I am glad you didn't get hurt. I remember your knees acting up last year. I hope this year is much better for you. Keep dancing, maybe you should do the "Safety Dance" next time .

    emoticon whew! glad you didn't fall and break a leg...I just knew that was coming when I read you were dancing in the snow/ice. LOL

    Glad you are ok. Love the kitty photo. My cats love to try & eat the ribbon..ug. I can't use real ribbons on my gifts anymore.. I have to use the silk/material kind of bows.

    emoticon kitties are fun... emoticon

    I read your blogs on my phone but I can't comment because I can't get my phone to keep me logged in on Spark, drives me crazy! lol. BUT I had to come back to the blog and tell you that Winter is a little evil in the sneaky ice underneath the snow. Dancing it out while shoveling is something we're both guilty of, I remember slipping a few times last winter lol.

    Hope you didn't wipe out too bad! Lots of love, by the way, I'm coming over for a chocolate martini!

    What I most & truly enjoyed is that you had fun, and didn't hurt yourself.

    As one who has lived in Mn. all my life I learned at a young age to walk rather carefully when snow came falling when ice was below. Awe then we put on ice skates and skated on out door rinks, as only two indoor rinks back then in northern Mn. Lots of falls, but were young and could handle it. Hope you have a great week. Winter is returning here this week so expecting snow( as here in the twin cities) the snon has melted quite a bit with the January thaw we been having.

    Love the angry cat!
    My cats love the wrapping paper too.
    I'm glad you didn't get hurt. I too like the idea of a chocolate martini dance party at your house. I know it would be crazy fun.
    Keep your blogs coming. Love to read or watch them.

    Love that cat picture!

    Wow that sounds like a fun way to shovel snow.............until the fall of course!

    Glad you are ok.

    I took a tumble last winter, landed on my tail bone and had to sit on a pillow for a few weeks. That was NOT fun. emoticon

    Enjoy the snow, I sure wish we would get some. It's been a snow less winter here for some reason. It just keeps missing us.

    I'm afraid of cats.... emoticon I'm sure it's the reason my sisters cat bullys me all the time, she was headbutting me today. Prim looks lovely, but I'm worried she'd headbutt me too...but I want to come to your fireplace gathering!!

    Oh dear, poor you, lol. so awesome that you were dancing and shovelling though, way to turn natures gift into a fun ole time! I hope you didn't get a bruise and no more dancing on ice missus!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad you didn't get hurt or well, that it was worth a tumble! I love the idea of a virtual dance party with chocolate martini!!

    I think we are on opposite ends of the continuum because when we are cold you seem to be warm and vice versa! emoticon emoticon

    Oh yes and any chance to see your cat is great. lol

    Well, it's after 1 a.m. over here, but I'm glad I logged in to Spark one more time and found this blog before going to sleep, for I am seriously serious about a huge gathering of TWESTEN1 fans! We'll converge on your house and congregate around your fireplace, but we'll get the maritinis ourselves because your derriere might still be hurting from that snow-shoveling accident. BUT--listen everybody and I'm sorry if you wanted to hold her yourself-- I get to hold Prim, okay?! I have wanted to hold Prim for a long time!! Okay, I promise to share but please understand that I'll be greedy and unfair!

    Seriously, Diane, please take care in this cabin-fever inducing weather, and write us a bunch of blogs because I know it'll be hard to go out and we love your blogs, both video and otherwise! Have a cozy day!

    So, no picture of you after you fell down in your driveway?? I'm sure Angry Cat would have loved to take one and post it!
    Dancing on an ice covered driveway is definitely OUT for me this year! Not going to risk ANOTHER broken ankle.

    My kitty Maggie also had lots of fun playing in the wrapping paper and ribbons.
