Could there be... snowwwwwww?

Monday, November 11, 2013

Okay, for the official record, I hate snow. It makes me not be able to go places and all that crap. But I admit... I love to watch snow fall. I wish it could just fall and disappear. And we're supposed to get some tonight. Unfortunately it's supposed to come over night, and, assuming I can sleep, I will sleep through it. Therefore, I hope it does not snow. Dh has to walk to and from work in it {only about maybe 1/8 mile}, and I will be asleep, so let's hope they miss the weather report. Unless I can't sleep.

Today has been an okay day. I'm sad to say, I did not get in any exercise. I did make dinner, though. Shake N Bake chicken and mac'n'cheese. Not winning any health awards for that one, I know, but it was tasty. I also made some pumpkin brownies, and have managed to only have a little bit. I give myself a pat on the head for that one.

Other than that, we didn't do much today. Dh was off, so we slept in, then went to Ollie's to return a couple of sucky cookbooks, then went to the library. Dh has temporarily hijacked my Nook for a specific book, so I checked out the book I was planning to read. There's just something nice about holding a real book. Unfortunately I am having to hold it VERY gently. It was printed in the 80s, and it's paperback... and falling apart. I opened it up and half almost fell out in my hand. I hate seeing an injured book. It's a good book so far, though. Something to keep me company through the long hours if I have trouble sleeping.

Tomorrow is gonna be a healthy day. Split pea and turkey ham soup for dinner. It's a recipe I got here at SP and it sounds SO good. I've never actually had split pea soup, so I can't be sure... but it sounds good. And it's going to be ridiculously cold tomorrow, so it's a perfect day for it. Now let's just hope I can wake up in time to get it in the slow cooker!

Hope everyone has had a good Monday!

    Freeze the excess brownies after individually wrapping them. Makes you COUNT them while eating,,

    It's snowing here right now! Not sticking to the ground, though, as it's 40 degrees still.

    Love split pea soup!! You have an Ollie's? We have one here too. Love our toaster oven we got there. I'm with you, hate snow. It snowed in Iowa and Wisconsin today. My DGD and friend sent me pics of it. Like you, it is fun to watch it fall, but the fun ends there! If it could be 70 degrees, snow and melt, I'd be ok with it LOL. Hope you have a great Tuesday!

    we had snow here early this morning. I live in MN and I hate winter, but I love the first snowfall. After that it can snow then disappear.

    keep up the awesome job

    I love split pea soup - I use smoke flavor to give it depth, but it is not a requirement. emoticon the closest icon to a bowl of soup - I am not sure what this is!
