Sometimes things just seem to pile up.....

For example:  laundry, bills, dishes, paperwork, mending, work in general, and
This morning we got another inch of the lovely white stuff.   I went out with my snow shovel in hand to collect the newspaper and the mail.  I completely forgot that there was a huge pile up of ice in front of the mailbox and quickly found myself flat on my back making a snow angel in the street.  Now I had just watched the mail truck struggling to get traction at everyone's mailbox due to this ice flow.  I should have known better, I admit.  I will also admit that the first thing I did after regaining a vertical position was to make sure none of my neighbors had witnessed my unfortunate acrobatics.  As far as I know, I did not break anything - not even the ice.   The experience did , however, give me inspiration for this little introduction to this card:
