"I intend to live forever. So far, so good." - Steven Wright
Have fun digging outta that shit! lolz
thanks! waiting for the snowplow guy to do his job. we have anywhere from 24-28 inches. spouse has a pot of homemade chili on the stove, I have a fire in the fireplace, jazz is on the radio, and my knitting calls to me.
What a snow fall it was!!! I haven't seen hide nor hair of any snow removal here yet. I can't even get out the dorr on the one side of the building. I was surprised you didn't go out and make naked snow angels yet????
too fucking cold for snow angels!the only door we can use right now is the kitchen one; the front and sun porch doors have huge drifts blocking the way.
oh-my-goodness!! stay warm!
yep. ain't got nowhere to go as we are still under an "emergency vehicles only" order.
I hate to say it, but it looks pretty.Living with it, though, probably isn't?
pretty, yes; living with it sux donkey dick.
i feel your pain. been shoveling since yesterday and now my back is aching. aahh!!!
cripes, wasn't this something? reminds me of the blizzard of 96-97 in DC; stuck inside for 4 days.
yep. see what you're missing? :-b
My teeth started chattering looking at the first few.....but then a warm glow made itself felt as I could see that, despite everything else, all's well over there.
I KNEW you would like the pussy pix! snowplow guy visited 60 minutes ago and cleared our driveway. pussies and spouse are currently napping, there is a fire in the fireplace, a pot of homemade chili on the stove, the heat is on, the sun is out. no complaints here.
I flatter myself to think that you post pussy pics just because you know I like them. However, I'm fully aware that I'm one of many - actually, part of the great majority - of your followers who have such taste.
yeah, but YOU are the KING of animal pix! :)
Aw, shucks and thanks, A.M. I gladly accept the crown - only because of them, mind you.
the pussies are happy to hand it to you!
Wow! Mother Nature took a frigid dump on all of us.....Glad to know the kitties are snug and safe.
dump the bitch did!cats are currently taking their pre-dinner naps.
"Baby it's cold outside" ... looks very pretty!~ Freckles
looks are deceiving...IT'S EVIL!
Oh I love the snow photos! I miss snowy midwest January.
said the guy running around in shorts! in AZ! (hisses)
Just stay warm and cozy until it all melts away.
24+ is gonna take some time to disappear.
Wow, that's some crazy snow. It is beautiful, for those of us that don't have to deal with it of course. But I know it's a huge inconvenience followed by a mess when it melts. You be careful and I'd be snuggled up with those kitties!!! :-)
we will see what the morning brings.
Purdy. Or, should I say, purrrr-dy. ;)
purrrrrrrrrrrdy is the word of the day!
Your kitties look so warm and cosy. Are they curious about the snow or scared of it?
curious; we have a bird feeder outside that keeps the girls entertained. the cats also chase the deer away from the feeder; they paw quickly at the window and the deer scatter!
Sending warm thoughts your way, makes me wonder why I left Florida 20 years ago.
spouse and I took the day off cause it's still messy up here. stay warm and dry!
Hope everything is okay, and it didn't take too long to get dug out of there.
we are STILL digging out; 30 inches will do that to ya!
IT'S EVIL!I heard lewes and rehoboth sustained storm damage from the canal overflowing. at least your home is away from that mess.
Install one of these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNP04UhToAMStay warm my granny cougar knitting goddess!! It's perfect weather to blog, knit, bake and play with cats.
hi fabulous artist grandson (waves)!spouse and I stayed home from work today; we never lost power or heat during the storm. I baked a poundcake today, and have been knitting. the cats have been climbing on mama mountain (they do that when I nap on the sofa). tonight I'mma making chicken tikka masala for dinner.
Thank goodness you and your hubby didn't lose power or heat during the storm! Your knitting needles would have froze into icicles! LOLMmm Pound cake sounds so good right now. How hard did you have to pound to make that cake? I hope your chicken tikka turned out delish and you Mama Mountain shared some with the kitties!!Sending you warm vibes from SoFlo! <3
my needles are made of bamboo and steel and plastic and aluminum. I own many pairs/sizes.and I didn't have to pound too hard - the stand mixer did all the work! ;-bI like making my own chicken tikka - bake chix breasts first, heat up the sauce (it's 100% natural from the UK) and make brown rice. quick and easy and dee-lish.keep sending those warm vibes up here to melt the snow, dear; love you!
The bigger the object you're making, the larger the needle you use? Yas girl!! Thinkin' smarter, not harder ;)That sounds amazing! Speaking of quick and easy, I should really dust off my crockpot and utilize it. I've been seeing more and more dessert recipes made in crockpots. Throw shit in and eat it hours later, umm yes please!I will! Just close your eyes and envision yourself laying on a beach, surrounded by hot guys, with a cocktail in your hand and that'll warm you right up! Love you GC!
"The bigger the object you're making, the larger the needle you use?" - not necessarily. the needle size numbers run from 0000 to 50. I have made sweaters on size 4s and scarves on size 17s.we use our crockpot weekly for dinner entrees. I have even made lasagna in it! my crockpot is over 30 years old and still going strong; believe it or don't, it was a wedding gift from my ex-husband's parents. when we divorced, I kept it cause I KNEW he would not know what to do with it.oh sweet mother of pearl, I can see the beach and hear the ocean and taste the cosmo and smell the coconut oil being rubbed on my back by a handsome hairy hunk!
Haha, shows you how little I know about knitting. I learned something new, thank you! Have you ever used a size 50 needle? You are one smart cookie, I would have taken the crockpot too. I can't believe how last they long! Do you ever have any fear of leaving it on and going to work, with animals being in the house? My roommate never wanted me to use mine in college because the cats would jump on the counter and she was scared they would knock it over or something. Oh girl, YES!! Let me pull up a chair next to you. I'll light up a joint.
**long they last haha
Wow. You certainly got the snow. Didn't seem to bother the pussy cats though:)
NOTHING bothers the furkids!
They've got it good:)You're a great mom to the furkids.
yes. I was not born with the mom gene for human kids, but the furkids I can handle quite nicely. right now they are back in bed for their morning after-breakfast naps.
How old are they?My morning's been spent on cleanup. Paw prints on the carpet. The dog and one of the cats both had upset stomachs.....Things are quiet now.
from the top down - miss oreo is 7, miss gigi is 3, and miss nyla is 8. all are rescue kitties.I am sorry to hear your furkids are not feeling well. :(
Hi My Dear, I see you survived the onslaught of snow. How are you, hubby and kittehs handling it. Did you go to work Monday? Same tied crap for me these last four months, sigh. Have a good one.
well hello stranger! we are all well. we could not make it into work on monday. spouse and I went back to work on tuesday; things are starting (slowly) to return to normal.you need a new life, dear!
Great pics. And now it is headed in our direction... Torrential rain and high winds in the UK, but no snow. :)JP
just what the UK needs - more rain and wind. youse guys have had too damn much of that!
Love the view. I adore snow but, only when it comes to watching it. I dislike the fact sometimes, I have to get rid of it... If you know what I mean. :)
hee hee hee! have you ever written your name in the snow, turning it yellow in the process?
Fabulous pics, WQ; as we live two miles away Mom and I have the same scene at our place. Still having neighbors help dig out ; no mail yet; tonight Mom and I did get out for dinner and cocktails.I opened a window, and dime-sized chunks of snow fell on the windowsill. My cat, Ivy (a Russian Blue, built for snow with snowshoe-sized paws and a dense coat) LOVED it! I think it was her first encounter with the white stuff. Me, I hate it, and long for my LA days when 45 degrees was a chilly night.Mom has the heat blasting; I am sitting in my underwear drinking Ginger Brandy and playing with cat. :-)Wishing, Hubby, and the pussies a warm weekend!Love,Janey xoxoxo
dear ice cunt:we put our mailbox on the plowed snowpile; so far we are getting deliveries.at least you don't HAVE to go anywhere in this shit, like we do.BTW, we have an xmess present for you. nothing big, but something you might like. perhaps a brunch next weekend?
I would LOVE a brunch with you and your spouse! Perhaps we could then go see an Oscar-nominated movie! I want to see The Renevant, for one reviewer said the bear attack scene "should do for walking in the woods what 'Jaws' did for swimming in the ocean..." I am free both Saturday and Sunday of next weekend.xxxxxxoooooxoxo
I will discuss with spouse and we will call you! :)
