Freezing Fragments


Click here for Winter Switch winter wear
There are a number of things I like about snow; the beauty of fresh undisturbed snow; the fun memories that we make playing in the snow; having a chance to capture gorgeous snow covered landscapes with my camera. In other words it is great to visit, but I am not thrilled to live in it. So I created three variations of the above Winter Switch for those who feel the same.

We have one car and I am the designated taxi driver. This photo was taken on my first run of the morning. About an hour and three additional inches of snow later, I tried to take my other daughter to work. Rear wheel drive, hills, snow and ice just don't go well together. We got a mile from home when we hit the first and smallest of the hills we needed to go over.  Twenty minutes and 200 feet later I turned around and went home.

Mrs. G commented that we should put a bumper sticker on the back of the car to let people know it is rear wheel drive so they don't get mad or think we just have no clue how to drive in the snow. So after my morning runs I got to work on the perfect bumper sticker. My first design had to be scrapped due to a senior moment. It read 'Front' wheel drive instead of rear wheel drive.
Available in both bumper stickers and car magnets

Enough about winter! How about them 49ers? Not sure where that came from especially since I am not a football person. On to a few of this weeks revelations.

The universe doesn't hate me! My third wish is on it's way to being answered.

Carol at Never...Ever...Give Up Hope posted a weekly sum up that included this article she wrote at the beginning of the month that reminded me I was able to accomplish much more when I took on more than I thought I could possibly handle. I still am not 100% sure which direction I am headed but at least I am in motion! 

The Berlin Wall wasn't nearly as thick as I thought it was.

Now for a bit of fun!

I can't wait for spring to try these out!

So how did your week go? Let me know in the comments. Are you a Fragmented Blogger? If so, Mrs. 4444's is the best place! Just click the Fridays Fragments button and start fragging!

Ok, that bubble thing was very cool!!! My boys are now gathering supplies as we speak ;-) Congrats on your book!! Is that your #3? It's been a while since I have been around the blogging block, I probably missed something ;-)

I always try to be patient with others during bad weather. We haven't had any bad weather here in Germany yet, so I have no idea how they drive in it. I do like your bumper sticker!

So glad I don't have rear wheel drive anymore and happy I don't have a taxi service anymore. Thanks for the reminder of how good I have it.

Our winter weather is coming...snow is expected Saturday.

I think that bubble thing would keep kids occupied for hours... and maybe us older ones, too. Stay warm in this cold weather.

Congratulations on your book!!
Ugghhh the snow. We had a wet snow last night. Such a mess.
I'm not ready but here it comes!
Have a great weekend.

Where you are? The snow pic is beautiful. I have no clue on how to drive in thick snow. I have never lived any farther north than Tennessee.

Aack! Sorry for the snow meets Rear Wheel Drive problems. I think that there are probably many who would like that bumper sticker!
