REALLY!!! It snowed night before last and I woke up to a good two inches of gorgeous, powdery, ski-worthy snow.
Although this fact is clearly a sign of the apocalypse, I enjoyed it immensely! When I got up, I busted out my white trash Texas ice scraper - a hotel key from my trip to Nashville, and I scraped a head sized hole on my windshield. There is no point in scraping anything larger than that for several reasons:
- I don't have any gloves
- I'm not going very far
- It will be 70 degrees in a few hours
Then I set out on my journey to Starbucks, blazing a trail in the snow and ice on my untraveled street. I almost hoped to run into Matlock or someone else who could solve a mystery with just tracks in our unusual snow.
Fortified by what I'm certain was only three, not four, shots of espresso I returned to begin my snow day. This necessitated some Immaculate Baking Company Cranberry Orange Scones, just to make life worth living while snowbound.
Since I telecommute, I did not get a day off. But I did manage to make my customary, once every 50 years tiny snowman.
And I decided to make a card commemorating that thing which is especially important during these dark, cold, quiet days - CAFFEINE!!How fun is that little teabag? I just folded that out of vellum paper and just stapled some twine from my pantry to it. The stamps are from Morning Cup, and the paper is Crumb Cake and First Edition (with the Scalloped Border Punch and Early Espresso ribbon) And I colored the teapot with markers to look like that enamelware you use when you're camping. And by "you're" - I do mean you. I don't sleep outside. I'm not sure if everyone is aware of this, but that is where they keep the scorpions and stuff. In the "outside". No thank you.
Hope you have a fun Saturday afternoon!
