Beautiful Snow

This is the way I like it. and, lucky for me, this is what I have the pleasure of seeing outside my windows.  Yesterday and Today.  The temperatures are in the 50's so I have the furnace turned off and the windows opened.  Fresh air in the house.

Today's smoothie:  Frozen banana chunks, frozen mango, fresh pineapple, frozen raspberries plus a tiny bit of honey, about 10 ounces of water and 1 cup of organic raw cashews for creamy-ness. I didn't add the usual 4 ounces of yogurt.  I have two 10 ounce jar/glasses.  One for today and one to drink at work tomorrow.

Today's Housework: Vacuum the entire house, open windows, wash all throw rugs, wash windows that the dog has nose printed.  I should attempt floor washing but it would just be dirty 20 minutes later.  So, I will hold back on that until we stop wearing snow boots.  Perhaps wait till after Mud Season (when snow melts).

Today's Reading:  Another Man's Moccasins by Craig Johnson.  Don't have many left to read and I am sad about that. For the past few weeks, Walt Longmire has been my best friend and companion.  And I will miss his company.  As I miss Chief Inspector Gamache and his company.

Today's Purchase:  Usually the "today's purchase" involves groceries.  But today it was two on sale cashmere sweaters.  One shale gray and one black.  Boxy with a loose turtleneck that I can collapse down into the shawl collar that I prefer.  I refuse to buy "on line", so when I saw the 800 number at the top of the page--I grabbed the phone and my credit card.  On Monday I purchased seeds for summer vegetables.  $35.  I am hoping they arrive today.  So I can look at them and dream of summer garden days.

Today's Thoughts:  I wonder if we all tweeted at the exact same minute--could we collapse the system?

Joanne, I don't think you got the same storm we did about 40 miles away! Think I'll move over there : ) It barely got to 30 yesterday,compared to your 50, we have so much snow can't see much of anything but white, that gets old after 10 minutes. I'm ready for spring big time! We also had a 12 hr power outage, did I mention I dislike winter?
