Hercules is out of here! Finally. It just kept snowing and snowing. We woke up with it snowing on Thursday morning and it didn’t stop until early Friday morning. I don’t even know how much snow we got, but it’s a lot. We shoveled 3 times, twice yesterday and once this morning. Poor John has been sick this week since NYE with a bad cold, so I made him stay put inside today with no shoveling. We hit a high of 0 today. Bitter cold coming in for tonight.
Here is a little tip for you. On these really cold nights, open up the cabinet doors for your sinks that are against exterior walls. This will help room air get in there and help keep the pipes from freezing with the lowered house temps at night. Have you ever opened your cabinet on a really cold day? It gets colder in the cabinet!
The storm passed and the sun came out. It’s really pretty, I have to say. At least until it gets yucked up from road spray.
How about a day of eats for a change? I haven’t done that in a while. Here was breakfast.
This is a breakfast sausage from a local company and it really isn’t greasy at all, and very tasty to boot. How about that for a different breakfast?
I had some greek yogurt for lunch. Kind of a cold day for yogurt, but I felt like having this:
Work was fairly busy for the early part of the day. It has been spotty all week, so I never know when there will be work. Since I was working, John made lattes (which is pretty typical anyway).
You can see him tucked in under a blanket playing a video game
Pixie is being contemplative about the snow here:
So lucky she doesn’t have to go out in that cold weather. She has it good.
On a side note, here are my nails to keep my mind off the snow. Pink flowers!
The flowers were made with my stamping tool. I used a matte top coat. Not sure if you can see the fact that my nails aren’t shiny. The matte coat is interesting and makes the nails more subtle (like pink flowers really can be subtle, but anyway… ).
I had an old staple for dinner. BBQ chicken on a baker!
With tea on the side. I am downing the decaf Constant Comment with this cold weather.
Plus a little after dinner palate cleanser
Staying in tonight for sure – way too cold to venture out. John usually plays poker on Friday nights, but he is not well enough to be going out. We’ll be having some decaf and I have a larabar snack. I foresee a lot of playstation games tonight
