After the snow

One nice thing about big storms, whether they be snow or rain, is how clear and clean the sky is the next day.


Perfect morning for banana breakfast bread pudding, too, don’t you think?


Today felt like a relaxing day.  Normally I really struggle to work on Fridays for whatever reason. Maybe because it is Friday, but also the doctors that usually dictate on Fridays are the more difficult ones and makes production hard.  However, today was not the case there.

Work was a bit slow in the early afternoon and I visited Billy for a while.  He loves the lap.  He jumps into my lap and bites my chin (not hard) before settling down. Not sure what the heck is up with that.


There were some people interested in adopting Billy, but then they decided that they weren’t ready for adoption right now, so Billy is back on the wagon.  Better that these people figured this out ahead of time than after they got a cat, right?   There is another adoption event at the mall in a couple weeks, so he will go to that if no one calls in the meantime.

While the workshop is not as nice as being in our house, at least Billy is safe and warm out there (it’s heated).  Beats living on the streets.  I think he likes it:


John was pulling snow off the workshop roof when I was out there.  The snow slides off our house roof because it is slate, but the shop is asphalt and we bought a snow rake to keep  from getting a heavy pile up on it.


The snow melts and forms an ice dam right over this door, which is really annoying.  Hence we are removing as much snow as we can.

I feel better that the garden is now tucked away under an insulating blanket of snow.  Hopefully I won’t lose so many bulbs this year.


John and I then did what has become our Friday afternoon tradition of playing hooky for a while and going out for coffee!


It was nice to get out of the house after being cooped up since Wednesday.

Eats have been good again today.  I will have a small piece of The Cake tonight – the last piece, actually.  It’s in my calorie budget for the day.

I was out taking out the garbage and saw the beautiful moon with a hazy ring around it.


So pretty.

This will be a laid back weekend.  I need to do a 2012 round up post as well.  It’s always good to reminisce.

    Hi Lori.

    So good to see how Billy is doing.

    As 2012 draws to a close I want to thank you for your blog – for sharing your journey in life. I look forward to reading it.

    I’m wishing you, John, Pixie & Billy a new year full of laughter and grace.

    My best,

    We have so much snow that I’m not really impressed about yours. 🙂 I’m glad I live in an apartment and don’t need to shovel snow – though I need to shovel my 7th floor balcony occasionally..

    Billy is totally your cat now! 🙂

    Love the snow pics! Sounds like you may be expecting more. Amazing how the road in front of your house is clear. In the south, we’d still have as much snow on the road as I can see in your yard! LOL! Looking forward to the 2012 recap!

    A ring around the moon means rain or snow the following day, right? (Just to show my Girl Scout years weren’t a total waste. :))

    And ditto Sharon’s comment re: the clear roads. Our one snow plow doesn’t cover much territory.

    enjoy your weekend, Lori!

      We live on the main road in town, so it gets cleared right away. One benefit to being on a busy road, I guess.

      We are getting more snow, but only 3 inches or so pfffft!

    I wish you lived nearer. Every time you write about Billy and show his picture, I fall for him. I hope he finds his forever home soon although I know he is very happy where he is.

    Hi Lori, I ‘aww’d’ out loud at little Billy!!! He’s a lucky little man and I’m SURE he’ll find his forever home soon (if he hasn’t found it already. wink! Just kidding…) Snow pics are so pretty, I love snowy ground against clear blue skies! Have a wonderful, relaxing last weekend of the year.
