1.17.2008

this post is dedicated to my buddy down in Naples Florida. xoxo


headed north for the big event: it might snow!


winter preparedness checklist: exhaust dog


secure redneck rigging


make a double batch of mom's eggy mac-n-cheese one to keep one to share with "nephew"
(nephew, for the uninitiated is my "deliverance"-like sometime neighbor)


trick out the hen house with heat lamp


and fresh stuffin' inside their blueberry box


set up my command center and wait for snow. watch in horror as the weather channel shows the ATL getting snow! oh no! its south of me!


reward! delight! yip yip yip!

  6. the pics didnt upload for me... but the video was sooooo fun! Those chickens really facinate me... probably because I havent ever been upclose and personal with a chicken before (well not one that wasnt human at least!) What did they do in the snow? Did they like it? Its funny I actually do miss the snow a bit. That first snow of the season when everything is soooooo peaceful and calm... the moonlight in reflecting off it in the middle of the night...

    I dont miss it 2 days later when its slushy and gray... oh and I really dont miss those snow plows at 3am clearing the streets! Ohhhh and dont get me started about HAVING to shovel the walkways and drive... a couple of years ago,B4 we left Philly, we got together and bought a snowblower with 6 other neighbors... it was WONDERFUL!

    Happy snow!=]

  7. I had no idea you had another blog. Those pics were fantastic and that shot of the living room ?, well inside the house anyway, looks so inviting and cosy. Is this where you live SHE? What a fab place!

  8. You all look so snug up there and I just bet you're digging the snow! And that Trout. She makes me giggle. I wonder if she'd take to a springpole?

  11. thursday next: the secret is a pinch of nutmeg.

    kate: i know. when its a light dust and then it melts away the next day its better. never gets dirty or old. however there was an ice storm a few years back that lasted almost a week...no power and no driving. except i decided to take the big white truck (apocalypse) up in the cohuttas. almost went over the edge. but didnt. therefore it was fun.

    gypsy: its like a little pumpkin. the pine makes it glow warmly. thank you. i appreciate your kind words about my home. i love it here.

    moi: what is a spring pole? i tried to get her to follow me up a pine tree but she just barked like a maniac. however i was able to hide from her for a while before she looked up. that was fun/

    baceman: grrrerhahaha ohhhh i bet you have a very relaxing weekend in store. *yip* good to see ya! (i love my rush CD!!!!!!!)

    foamy: looks even mo better this time. i have chocolate and coffee. so, im good. grrrerhahaha
    *ever since the surgery if i try and have a cocktail or wine or even just a beer i get a headache!!!!!!!!!*

  13. Methinks you also have talents for cinematography.

    You people and your snow. Wouldn't you like to be up north here where it's nice and warm now?

    (ducks)

    All right. I sympathize. But you do have some nice snow pictures. I hope nephew appreciated the mac and cheese.
