To market

Bro-in-law forgot to mention (until this morning) that we are to bring potatoes and squash to tonight’s Christmas dinner. Hmmm. We searched high and low and finally found a Russian market that is open on Christmas day. It’s a Christmas MIRACLE!

Here’s wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a few Christmas miracles of your own! 🙂

Blog type analyzer

According to the “Blog Type Analyzer“, my blog personality type is “ESFP – The Performers.” I would agree, except I’m too exhausted and have to go rest my head on some soft, brightly colored, sweet smelling pillows. Unless I’m your manager, in which case I’ll hit you in the head with said pillows if you don’t let me have my fun!  What’s your blog personality type?

ESFP – The Performers
The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.”

Well, the final tally is about 13″ of snow. It made it up to the bottom of the stone wall…woo hoo! Then last night the temperature rose just enough to melt a bit of the snow and then plunged below zero again so now everything has a nice, slippery crust of solid ice. I *LOVE* winter! Argh! Here’s the final view, and a couple of shots of the boys plowing the driveway.

I did go out and take pictures around town yesteday, but I’m already bored with how WHITE everything is. We need some color around here, STAT!

What’s the weather where you are? And if it’s over 70, can I come visit? 😉

Ayup. Still snowing. *Sigh!* So this morning I thought I would venture out a little bit and give you a slightly broader view. I also threw in a couple of pics from other seasons to show the contrast.

If I get ambitious I may go out and take some pics around the ‘hood later. But for now I hope you enjoy these frosty pics!

Snow update

Dudes, it is *STILL* snowing out there! Took a few pics to track the progress. If this keeps up I won’t be able to open my freakin’ door! Snow shovel? What? I want a flamethrower!

What to wear?

It’s still snowing and I’ve got a bit of cabin fever, so I’m web surfing. Which inevitably led me to the mutilated Barbie® jewelry website. Right? Gotta love the internet!

I want one of those bracelets!

So the local news here in Boston has been hyping the HELL out of this snowstorm, the first of the season. What is this? Snow? In New England? In WINTER? OH. EM. GEE!!!

So natch, everyone has gone on down to the supermarket to stock up on their white bread and triscuits. I was lucky in that I didn’t have to be on the road too much after the snow started, and though I did do a faceplant in the driveway when I got home from the gym, all in all I’m in pretty good shape.  I’m hanging w/awesome hubby and awesome nephew (home for winter break), and fabulous kittens. We have electricity, heat, triscuits, bad movies to watch, a bit of wine… Yep, life is GOOD!

Tomorrow it’s going to look BEAUUUUUUUUUUTIFUL out there,  but I thought I’d start early and take a few pics during the storm. So herewith are pics of the BLIZZARD OF 2008: the view from my patio! (Heeeeee!)

Hope you are warm and happy wherever you are right now. Merry merry! 🙂
