Yesterday was an interesting day.

We had a ton of snow on Friday night, so Saturday morning I had to shovel out the Church entrances. Did three of them, and that was okay, but then when I got to the downstairs door, I discovered that when they plowed the parking lot, they left a wall of snow in front of the entrance walkway. I couldn't even get to the door from the outside. This stuff was real "cardiac snow"...wet and heavy. So I just started chipping away at the wall. It took forever (it was about 3 ft. high and 4 ft. thick), but I finally got it cleared away. Then I could clear the walkway. By the time I was done, though, my muscles were really aching! Imagine how it would feel to do push-ups for an hour! That was my exercise for the day.

The rest of the day was a lot more fun. We went into The Cities to see Alton Brown, my Food Network hero. He was doing a book signing and meet & greet. What a riot he was...very friendly and approachable, but with a real edge to his humor. I haven't laughed so long and so hard in a long time. Made me forget how much my back, shoulders, and arms hurt from shovelling! Anyway, I got to meet him, got a bunch of good photos, including one with him & our daughter to put up on our Wall of Fame in the dining room, and a signed book. A very successful trip!
