No, I have no news whatsoever. I am just enjoying today for what it is, a Snow Day. It is still as exciting to me as when I was a kid and school was either closed or we went home early due to that wonderful winter word, snow.
This morning I got up extra early just to watch the beginning of the snow falling and at 9:15 it started. Gorgeous. The report says 6” but I have my doubts since our loved but almost always wrong forecasters probably won’t be any different this time. That’s ok, this is wonderful just as it is. I made my plans in advance yesterday, headed to the store (not for bread and milk, oh pleasssseee) and stocked up on cat food just in case I was really snowed in for days. Hey, I can do without but I’d never make the “kids” do without. The grocery store was packed as expected. When it snows, I have this craving for chili cheese dip, lots of jalapenos, oh yummm, so I planned to buy the ingredients for that, the cat food as already said, and then regular stuff that falls into the category of good-for-you. Yes, I believe in being prepared. I lugged home the loot and stored it away, got out a container from the freezer of that unbelievably good turkey soup I’d made, and waited for today. I swear, it was like being a kid and waiting for Christmas Eve and the sound of hooves on the roof. I barely slept a wink and got up at the crack of dawn. My dreams were realized and I was grinnin’ ear to ear. Breakfast was early and coffee, too. Then when 1:00 rolled around, I was really craving that chili cheese dip. Unreal. I forgot to buy the ingredients. At this moment as I type, I still feel like the world has come to an early end, but I’ll get over it. The scent of that soup is wafting up the steps and I’m heading down to scoop up a bowl – still, it’s not the dip, darn it.
I took a few shots of the outside as the snow was coming down, and I made a little vid of the front, but as usual, my vids go all over the place. I made one of the birds in the back yard, too, but good lord, I must have hit the button at the wrong moment a dozen times and never got a complete vid….deleted the crummy thing. Anyway, here’s my day, including a new picture of Sam since I hadn’t updated one of him for a bit and a new one of me, too, for what it’s worth ;) As usual, click to enlarge if you’d like. I really didn’t have much to say today, it was more a snow feeling than anything.
Here’s hoping if you have snow, you’re enjoying it just as much
Here’s the little vid. It’s not even close to what it should be, but gosh, when you get a whim and the snow is just that minute coming down, tell me, just how do you go about making a perfectly done vid? It’s shakey as usual and disjointed, too, but I don’t care. It will always remind me of today, and today will never come again.
