let it snow! (a morning in pictures)

I woke up this morning to a rather pretty sight.

The first real snow of the season (not just flurries and actually stuck). I'm excited about it... I do love snow when it doesn't make driving dangerous, and I don't yet have to shovel it!

It was snowing in the city too. Which much improves my view.

I dressed the part today, wearing not only my heavy jacket... but also my boots and a comfy sweater.

Half of the office is out today. So I'm using the time to not only catch up on work items... but also, I'll admit, to prep myself for next week. I'm drawing up a schedule of what I want to get done each day next week to be ready for my family's arrival on Thursday. So far I have:

put sheets on guest bed
walk into office, look around, panic
close office door, eat cheese and watch TV
enjoy denial

What do you think?
Honestly, I'm not really worried. I'll certainly be busy, but its my family and they don't care in the slightest if there's some dust on our TV stand or the office rug never got vacuumed (we would need to find it first). I do want to get our house in some semblance of order though... if only so that we don't have to be surrounded by piles anymore. I can clean up best when its just me, with no interruptions and a good span of time to just go at it. So next week is perfect.

In other bits and pieces:
  • Trav talked to his brother last night (the one we're getting the puppy from). The puppies have started opening their eyes and trying to walk a bit on shaky legs. He said he'll be picking one out for us soon and asked for a name to start calling her by... so our dogs name is now officially Daisy.

  • I feel much better today... those antibiotics really do work fast! I had the worst heartburn last night when I got in bed, which I think was from all the cranberry juice. So maybe I won't drink that right before bed anymore.

  • My coworker and I are about to head out to the Reading Terminal Market for lunch. I'm really excited since I haven't been there in ages! I think the hardest part will be deciding what delish place I want to get food from.

Well, back to work for me. I'm sure I'll poke my head in here sometime next week. There will be pictures too, surely, from both our mock-Thanksgiving with Ro & Pat this Saturday... and from the "real deal" next Thursday. Stay tuned. ;-)
