Actually I have no idea what that would be like. It's been snowing at the shorehouse a LOT. And it's the shore...we're five blocks from the ocean. Very odd weather we're having this year.
Today it's also snowing in NYC and neither snow, nor sleet, nor rain will keep me from schlepping to work. No siree. I'm loyal like a dog. (Woof.)
Having said that, I just looked out the window whilst enjoying my lunch and am thinking I made a horrible decision.
The photo's not blurry; that cloudiness would be snow. Lots. Of. Snow.
I have taken advantage of the snow-filled weekends, though. I popped my own corn using the instructions Chef Guas gave at my class last week. It took just a large covered (cover = very important) pan, 1/4 cup of canola oil, 2/3 cup of corn kernals, and excessive amounts of elbow grease (shake, shake, shake the pan over heat). Note to self: A mere two-thirds a cup of corn makes a LOT of popcorn.
I also bought what I would describe as Ikatish (Ikatesque?) fabric from the JoAnn's clearance rack a couple of weeks ago:
At only $4 a yard, I figured I would make myself a wrap skirt. But this past snowy Sunday had me hankering for a pop of couch color instead. So the standard issue sofa pillow went from this:
And when Mike wasn't looking I added this:
But I think that may be too much for him (And me. I think I stepped way over the trendy line with that pairing).
And once again, we spent a large chunk of the weekend shoveling. I spotted this duo on one neighbor's porch during my leg of the shovel-a-thon, and hours later they were still there.
They let me get in pretty close, so I rewarded their generosity with some popcorn.
Hope you're enjoying the day in your nest.
