Snow Angel

No, this wasn't taken today - it's not fit for man nor beast out there. Instead, we've been having a blast indoors; we baked a cake, did some stamping, created cards and had fun with apple slices!

Baby It's Cold Outside

It's a character builder...

snow, snow, s.n.o.w.

Well, we are smack-dab in the middle of a 'lil 'ole blizzard here in Chicagoland. We have had at least 12" of the lovely stuff dumped on us since 7:00 this morning. Whoop-de-frickin-do! After this storm blows over into Michigan, we are supposed to get more on Friday. Can I hear another "Whoop-de-frickin-do"?

I hope all this snow raises the water levels of the Great Lakes!

I'm going to leave you with a few jokes about our favorite subject - snow:

That's right, woodchuckers, it's

Groundhog Day! That little rodent in Punxsutawney, PA - Phil, the Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators, saw his shadow.

You know what that means - six more weeks of winter. Approximately 90% of the time, Phil sees his shadow. Have a good groundhog day!

Snow Day....woo hoo!

God bless weathermen, er, I mean meteorologist (excuse me). People just jump all over them when they are wrong. Not me. What was supposed to be a "little snow - 'bout 1-3 inches" turned into, oh, about 10-12".

This morning I got Michael ready for pre-school, kissed DH goodbye (he can "work from home" whenever he wants and we were off! The roads were a little yucky, but nothing that my Santa Fe can't handle (I love my S.F). I finally got to work...hmmmm...the parking lot is pretty in, booted up my pc and hit the Outlook 7:50 a.m. there was an all employee email - THE OFFICE IS CLOSED and WE GET PAID FOR IT! WOO HOO HOO! I ended up working until 10:30 and left but I'm glad that I stayed because I was able to get a lot of busy work done without interruptions.

I stopped at Target (ALONE) and wandered aimlessly up and down the aisles. There was no one there. All I need to buy was a birthday gift for one of Michael's friends. $64.00 later. Then I stopped at Wendy's and picked up lunch for DH and me. I love their chili. I watched Martha Stewart's show - she was pretty funny, especially with the guy who was making lots of yummy drinks for a SUPER BOWL party. The mojito one looked yummy!

So now I am multi-tasking - doing laundry and surfing! Have a great weekend.
