We opted for a stay-cation again this year for February break. It doesn't hurt to play it safe since the winters are so snowy here in Central New York. Let me correct myself...every other winter I can recall has treated us to a bountiful amount of snow for February break. It is mid-winter break...time to do wintery things. This year it looks like I will have to talk the kids into putting on heavy sweatshirts, carrying umbrellas and squealing with glee as we try to pull each other across the grassy yard in forty-five degree weather. Ick! We were off to a good start to something resembling time off over the weekend, as I got out of cooking two nights in a row! By yesterday morning, we seemed to be drifting back into something suspiciously similar to every other day, where I shuttle folks around, do laundry and feed people. The dog is absolutely exhausted, as he takes our presence in the house as a reason to stand guard with limited naps. Those are my random thoughts just on the kids having the week off. Moving on...
I was part of a designated driver tag team for my mother and her friends, who were attending the annual Winterfest Martini Walk (cocktails know no weather restrictions). I am not sure if the only thing that makes chocolate better is a orange pomegranate martini; or if the only thing that makes such a martini better is some dark chocolate!
If you are going to print an 85 page document, it is not a bad idea to click on that little thing that makes the pages have numbers, especially if your printer just spits things willy-nilly all over the floor when you aren't looking. This did serve well to advance my procrastination efforts though, I suppose.
Not sure which sounds worse: Mushy or Processed Peas?
Look! My crocheting has gone 3-D... Yup, you're right, that is going to be a bird...mm-hmmm, I'm sure of it! Patterns don't lie. The wings are made, but I have just not had the courage for the moment of truth when I try to attach them.
Yeah baby! We are back to "great" with regards to our power company ranking. We have actually fallen to #19 out of our 99 mystery neighbors, whereas two months ago when we were #13 we were only doing "good" .
I only see FOUR Snickerdoodles on this cookie sheet... Which one would you pick? That slightly misshapen one? Me too!
Well, it's 10:00 p.m. and I have to go walk in place in front of the television for 3,100 more steps. Super swell planning on my part! So, there's your pedometer update.
Thanks to Stacy for hosting the Random Thoughts Rebellion...take a step on over to see what's shaking at her place!
