Day 57 – February 4, 2011

Today was a snow day! Too bad I can work from home so I didn’t get to take it off 😦

My car mostly covered in snow

What it looked like this morning

{Forgot to change the exposure when I went to take a pic of Eddie} He's looking like he might want to check out the situation

{Focus fail} He just looked so confident about to walk out that I had to post it

Wait a second.. what's this cold wet stuffs?

Eddie's cute little paw prints

The record for the most snow recorded in one day period was broken;  it had been half an inch back in 1906, but there was 1″ of accumulation at Camp Mabry this morning. There were a ton of accidents on the road, but I wasn’t going to drive around town… if they can’t drive in the rain, they can’t drive on snowy roads nor ice! By 4pm, most of the ice/snow had melted and it had cleared up for the most part. The cats went out for a little bit in the afternoon (about 2-3 minutes) — Dusty was enjoying the sunshine and the warmer weather compared to the last few days. Later on, it had cooled down a bit, but Dusty still wanted to go outside and he was pretty demanding about it… he kept hitting the blinds in protest. I’m guessing he’s also suffering from cabin fever! He stayed outside less than a minute. I’m sure he’ll be happier tomorrow when it’s 56F.

Nothing exciting happened happened… I finally got around to watching the movie I got from Netflix in the mail a month and a half ago.


Gonna give this 5 stars


The only thing I like more than a happy ending is a happy ending based on a true story 😀

I can’t wait until tomorrow so I can finally leave the house without worrying about freezing to death 🙂


Day 56 – February 3rd, 2011

Today was day 2 of the super cold front.

I went to the kitchen to cut up some papaya, and Dusty followed me to the kitchen.

Can I has some treatz?

He stretched up on my sweat pants, which meant he wanted me to give him some treats. I took the bag of treats out of the pantry.. and it wasn’t long before someone came rushing in..

Gimme gimme!!

I gave them some treats and they finally let me cut up my papaya; I put it in my favourite bowl.

I {heart} papaya!

After work, I played some more of the Simpsons… I saw this billboard which I don’t recall seeing before:

I dunno about you, but it doesn't look like ham to me!

For dinner, I made some beef stir fry

Nutritious and delicious!

I was craving cookies really bad so I decided to make ones that wouldn’t break the PointsPlus bank 😀

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies and milk!

I went to bed and as I rolled and looked out the window, I saw my car covered in snow! So I went to take a pic.

Who knew I'd need a snow brush & ice scraper in Austin?!?

Sorry that it’s a little blurry, but since it was dark out, I had to use a long exposure relying on the railing to stabilize the camera since I didn’t feel like setting up a tripod. As I went to bed, I heard what sounded like hail… please don’t let my poor car get any more dents!!
