As I looked out of our bedroom window this afternoon, I felt like I was in a snow globe. The big puffy snowflakes were coming down sideways and, sometimes, the wind would shift and it looked like the snow was floating upward. It was a gorgeous sight to see. I was so mesmerized and sat watching for more than a few minutes. We seem to be in the direct path of the Lake Effect and it’s been pounding us. Favorite Man finally got me out there to learn how to use the snow blower just in case he’s not here when a big snow storm comes through.
Ever since they released us early from work on Friday, I’ve been hunkered down in our cozy home. Grandma Betty, who is visiting for the holidays, and I watched “Inside Man” which I was surprised to find was a good movie. It had enough twists and turns to keep it interesting as well as having actors I like to watch: Clive Owen, Denzel Washington and Jodi Foster.
I’m also reading Me Talk Pretty One Day written by David Sedaris. It’s a funny book but I’ve been so tired every night when I get into bed and start reading, I fall asleep within a few chapters. That’s not a commentary on the book, just that I’m still getting used to my new work schedule. I want to finish it up so I can start the book I won from Books on the Brain titled Gods Behaving Badly. It’s such an interesting premise for a book and I’m anxious to start it.
