Snowed In

I’m going stir crazy.  It’s 4 pm and still snowing here.  So far I watched Couples Retreat, twice, shoveled the driveway (it’s already completely covered again), baked cookies, and now I’m watching Love Happens.  Shoveling this morning was exactly the workout I expected it to be.  This snow was much different than the other two storms, whereas those were powdery and light, this snow was wet and heavy.  It took me an hour and a half to clear off my driveway.  I am sure I will feel that in my back and arms tomorrow.

This is about 9 am this morning, the “calm” before the bigger part of the storm.  It was sleeting and raining.  I think there was about 6 or 7 inches on the ground.

All my hard work, that has now been completely been undone, and then some.  I should probably go shovel again, but it looks reallllly cold and nasty out there.  For lunch I decided to try one of the California Pizza Kitchen frozen pizzas that I picked up at Target a couple weeks ago.  Went with the Margarita and it was delicious.  Luckily my mom was home to share it with me, or I probably would have eaten it all.

And then I went back for a third piece.  In honor of the upcoming romantic holiday this weekend, I decided to bake some cookies to bring the boyfriend when I go see him on Saturday.  I made these once before and they were a huge hit with him.  They are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, here is the recipe.

I need to put them away so I stop eating them.  I’ve already had like three or four and I am not usually a big sweets eater.  Give me a bag of potato chips over cookies and cake any day!  Except with these cookies, these I could eat all of.

These are some fun snow pictures now.

Pretty sure that tree is on the verge of just cracking in half.  So yeah, we have a little bit of snow here.  Apparently it is going to keep going like this until midnight.  Well I’m off to decide what to do with the chicken I have for dinner!

Here’s the present picture of the day.  He thinks he knows what he’s getting.  Muahaha, little does he know.  I got a picture of mine last night too!

  1. The picture where you dont have feet freaks me out. It also looks like youre not wearing shoes.

    Also, twice?

  2. My “better half” loves those CA Pizza Kitchen pizzas.

    Shoveling is serious business. Er, not that I do it often…

  3. Pumpkin chocolate chip! I was soooo upset last year when my roommate made those for her work and didn’t share! Blah… we had issues….

    And does shoveling snow count as “cross training”? If not, I really think it should.
