Snow, snow, go away - and a great giveaway!
First - for the giveaway info...Head over to Monogram Chick to enter this giveaway for a sharp looking duffel bag that can sport your very own initials, and tell her you were sent by me. You'll see why when you get there! This would be a pretty cool thing to win. You can bet I'm thinking of traveling to warmer climates about now!
On to the %$##@*&%-ing snow that is currently piling up over the piles that piled up last Friday and Saturday here in my neck of the snowy woods. Damn! We truly are into historical snow accumulation at this point, as this is first time ever that the Philadelphia region has had 3 major (24+ inches) snowstorms in one little winter. This is turning into the winter of my discontent, which I'm sure phases Father Weather not one bit. But I'm done. All my warm fuzzy wonder over the phenomenon of snow has been beaten out of me. The whole region is closed for business, basically. I sure don't mind a snow day, but the weeks of slowly melting dirty mucky icy mountains in all parking lots and roadsides aren't pleasant to anticipate. And the biggest thing...my gym is closed, naturally. After my triumphant first swim Monday, I haven't been able to repeat it. I planned to go yesterday, but had too many things to accomplish after work in order to beat the snowstorm that I ran out of time. Who'd have thought I'd be pining to go BACK into the pool?!
As usual, I'm cooking, reading, watching movies (soon), and reading blogs. How bad can that be? It's quite pleasant, actually. Hubby shoveled the driveway at the crack of dawn - the pavement was evident for about an hour before the snow started piling up again. This is crazy for a Florida girl! I used to dream of what snow would be like...now I'm dreaming of a beach, palm trees, and HOT sunshine...the very things I didn't care a bit about when I grew up in their midst. Perspective is everything. My food has been good this week - not perfect, but very good for me. Hopefully I'll be able to swim again tomorrow.
Stay warm everyone, or if you're hot - get cool. Be comfortable, peaceful and have a mellow day!
