Today was dig out day. Frances and I wielded our shovels like the troopers that we are and, by mid-afternoon, had uncovered the car and front entrance. It felt unusual to be out shoveling after a major snowstorm in balmy (20-something-degree) weather. I'm more familiar with subzero temps following a "snow event."
After shoveling I hauled in several more sleds of wood then collapsed on the couch to rest. Yep, I rested. Several hours later I woke, rose, and did my T'ai Chi Chih practice (seated).
It felt good to relax my body. The softness of the practice felt even softer since I devoted so much energy and muscular effort to shoveling snow and hauling wood earlier in the day.
