The snow fairy?

Remember the garbage can fairy? Well, she/he must be a snowbird because she/he hasn't been to my house in several weeks. Maybe her shift ended on New Year's Eve, I don't know. Ah, well, it was good while it lasted.

Looks like I've been assigned a new fairy, though. OK, so I know who this one is and he might not appreciate being called a fairy, but still... Last night we got several inches of snow. I knew I wouldn't have a chance to shovel the driveway after work tonight and I was not looking forward to putting that on tomorrow's To Do list. Imagine my delight when I arrived home tonight at 9:00 p.m. to find my driveway clear! My next door neighbor has a snowblower so I know it was him, especially since he did it the last time we had significant snow. But that time, he saw me come home from work and start shoveling. Yet another item on the People Are Really Nice Underneath All the Crap list.

Somebody remind me to bake the snow fairy and his wife some cookies, will ya?


  1. I think some cookies -- maybe a tray of bars? -- would be lovely. :-)

  2. How nice! Hey bake that Snow Fairy guy and his wife some cookies!
    Happy winter...

  3. How lovely! We have a snow fairy--and I am their garbage fairy. I love a good neighbor story--glad you have some!

  4. That is so nice! Wow, I wish my neighbors were that nice. Not like we have snow or anything, but still...

  5. Does your snow fairy do dishes? Maybe if you brought over some cookies and some brownies, you could negotiate dishes (or laundry).

  6. That's so sweet! We got snowed in one year and our neighbors came over with shovels, extra gloves, and a thermos of hot chocolate...after we got done with our driveway, we all went across the street and helped our neigbors over there out. I felt like I was in a Christmas movie :)
