I spent two months raking leaves off the lawn, now I have to rake things off the top of the house? What's next, raking the trees?
The artist in me is saying, "Go indoors,warm up by the wood stove to warm the body and conjure up a creative project to warm the soul, and put on some good music, like the Bee Gees."
An artist needs time and space!
The wife next to me is saying, "You need space? Go outdoors and do something about that snow that's forming icicles that are hanging off the roof! And that'll take some time, too! When you're done you can think about playing with your paints and listen to your Bee Gees!"
They're my Bee Gees. No one else in the house listens to them, unless I'm playing them and then they're forced to. The tunes stay with you...at times, I don't always remember the lyrics, but the energy of the music is good and gets one moving...Jive Talkin' is good roof raking music. I have to figure out how to hook up an outdoor speaker! Just like the best of "Stayin' Alive" is now the recommended beat for CPR, Jive Talkin' could be the next snow removal tool!
Of course, I had to make up some of my own lyrics..so as you listen to the guys belt out this tune, you can follow along with my verse below!
More to come on that...
Meanwhile, back at the snowed in farm. I was allowed back in the house, but was too beat to do anything creative. You probably can see by the photos here that there are no sidewalks to shovel, just a 300 foot driveway! And, the weather forecaster is saying, "More snow this week," so I'll be sure to come up with some more lyrics (as long as you don't tell my wife I'm writing these things)!
