Fun in the Snow

My idea of superwoman is someone who scrubs her own floors. ~Bette Midler

I don't like snow. However, I'm in the minority at my house. Yesterday, DD and Dd played outside for hours. After dumping about a foot of heavy, wet snow on us, the sun came out -- it was so warm, DD played outside in her snowbibs and a windbreaker, and was still sweating.

Poor Dakota gathers snowballs in her fur something fierce, though, and we make her lie in front of the stove to thaw. Check it out (this CAN'T be comfortable):

I stayed in and did chores all day. Something about having DH home makes me want to clean. So... I swept and vacuumed, did laundry, made dog food, washed dishes (three times), dusted ... you get the idea. Today, though, I have GOT to get caught up on computer stuff (I didn't blog hop, didn't write, didn't do any but the most important work at LASR/WC ... I am BEHIND).

On that note, I will simply say: Have an awesome day :-)


You Are Unique Because You're Bold

Unlike most people, you're willing to say or do whatever you feel like.

You don't try to go along to get along. If you think you're right, you'll hold your ground.

You are rare in that you are completely fearless. No one intimidates you.

Like a snowflake, you follow your own path. You fly solo, and you like it that way!

Hmmmm.... mostly...

ouch. Looks uncomfortable! Must've been some big puddles after they thawed!

I didn't get much of anything done, except found some old coworkers on Facebook, got some editing done and took a walk.

Now it's back to normal.

A snow-dog. LOL. It probably doesn't bother her much or she would have chewed them off.

Iko loves the cold. But Tank's place is in a warm house on the couch.

I hear you about being behind. I ran out of pre-written blog posts and had to scramble to get something up for today.

How long did it take for the snowball to melt off Dakota?

You Are Unique Because You're Wise

Unlike most people, you've got many of the secrets to life figured out.

You don't try to complicate things that don't need to be complicated. You keep it simple when possible.

You are rare in that you are able to enjoy an average, ordinary day. You don't have much to complain about.

Like a snowflake falling down to the ground, you are quiet and peaceful. You are happy to just be.
This is pretty accurate.

Have a good Tuesday.

You Are Unique Because You're Clever

Unlike most people, you are able to draw interesting connections and come up with amazing theories.
You are able to take in a lot of information at once. You can see patterns where others can't.

You are rare in your ability to think without boundaries or preconceptions. The whole world is open to you.
Like a snowflake, you are happy to contribute to something great. You like feeling that you matter a little.

I don't feel so badly about the rain. My dogs come in and I wipe them with a towel and we are done. I remember Bonny when we lived back east. She got those snow balls too. Yuk.

Wow. That looks SO uncomfortable!!!

Brandy said...

Awww, Poor Dakota! I hope she de-thawed quickly.

You Are Unique Because You Are Patient: Unlike most people, you aren't in any rush. You are able to savor every moment of life.
You don't mind waiting for something good to come your way. The wait makes it even better.
You are rare in your ability to step back and see the bigger picture. You refuse to let yourself feel anxious or impatient.
Like a snowflake, you take your time getting where you're going. The world will wait for you.

Hmm, maybe. I am noted for my patience. *G*

I hope you have a delightful day!
