Winter came & sucker punched us back in the face.
How many days is to spring? It's 65 days till Spring... always counting.
But we were reminded that it is indeed winter & winter isn't fun. It may be pretty, but its not fun. At least for me. I get some people like it. I dont understand those people.
Anyways, Friday, we made it into work without issue, though I could hear freezing rain hitting my car on the drive & it made me anxious about the drive home.
Work was great about it all because they sent out emails all day long giving updates on the roads & finally around noon, they said we could leave early - at 3pm.... which was perfect timing because that's when it really started coming down.
The ride home was starting to get slippery & slushy - but luckily, they had called off school & the traffic was so light.
The dogs were happy for me to be home so they could play in the snow. At least the Aussies. Bruno didnt' know what was going on & Zoe was like, "Let me just walk outside with one step & pee on the concrete & come back in" - that's my kinda girl.
I spent my Friday snuggled up on the couch watching some Netflix by some heaters & just glad all this hit on a weekend & we didnt have to worry about getting to work the next day in it.
Saturday, literally, all we did was stay in the house. The best day ever. I had plans to do some things & meet up with some people, but everything got canceled. I ended up just staying in my sweats all day, made some crock pot soup for dinner & made some corn bread & even tried out a new weight watchers 2 ingredient dough - turned out AMAZING by the way - I'll have to share this because everyone needs to know how simple this is.
Some pics from Saturday
It was so crazy how there was ice sticking out of the ground. It was like little daggers of icicles everywhere. I dont know if it was the ice that stuck to grass or what... but I've never seen it in my life - it was so cool!!!!
|All those holes are where ice is jolting out|
& of course, the obligatory picture of Ernie growing up
& just being plain cute...
& his big brother who is always cute too
|The hubs shoveling snow|
|Spent time Bible Journaling|
I spent the rest of my Saturday once again sitting on the couch & watching the rest of the A Series of Unfortunate Events.
|Exciting Saturday night|
I have to stay in the living room on the couch because we take slow doses in letting Ernie have access to the house. We did this with Harvey too. We've found out the closer they are to the door, the more they tend to know to go out of it to go potty. If they have access to the back of the house, its like they forget where the door is & just potty on the rug. Ernie does great when he's limited to the kitchen & living room. We'll work our way back to my room where all my knitting & DVR recorded shows are....I hope its REALLY soon.
Sunday, I did venture back out in the cold to go to MSM. The kids were laughing at me because I was doing "far away hugs" - especially for the people that I had seen on FB or Instagram that they were sick during the week. I kept reminding everyone I loved them, but germs scare me. Luckily, everyone understood & those far away hugs were fun. haha #airhug
I had to run into Target - because Sunday...
|Yes, that's a dog in a cart at Target....|
I loved it. They had his bed in there & he was so good - didnt bark once & just people watched.
& stopped at Starbucks - because Sunday
& then came home to snuggle back up.
But on a good note - I am excited - because I'm off work today!!!!!
The first time IN MY LIFE that I am off work for Martin Luther King Jr. Day!! WHAT?!?!?!?.... I am just shocked about it - & kept forgetting I actually got the day off.
So another 4 day work week ahead for me.... I'll take it!!!
So how was your weekend?
Did you get snow or frigid cold?
Are you off today or have to work?
