Well, over the weekend we had 20” of snow, and today we got another 18”.

That, my friends, is a wholelottasnow (unless you live in Syracuse, NY. Then it’s average)

My workplace told everyone to stay home today(AND tomorrow!) so today was a snow day for me. First one I’ve ever had with the company in 4+ years!

It came at a good time, though, since I am feeling a bit under the weather.


Since I was home today, I decided I wanted a warm breakfast…

1 egg +2 egg whites, 1/2 slice provolone cheese, and 2 slices of Canadian bacon on 2 mini whole wheat bagels = happiness.


I basically spent the morning watching the extended news casts about the weather, and reading my book.

Before lunch, I finally emerged from my house to help DH. He was running the snow blower, so I took the broom and started cleaning off our cars.

It took awhile!

Before I went out I had a snack….






After cleaning off the cars, changing my clothes (because my pants were soaked from the knees down from standing in the drifts!) and warming up, I made a quick lunch.

I didn’t realize how grubby my plate looked until I went to upload this pic. Sorry! LOL

I had a leftover venison burger on a piece of whole wheat artisan bread (leftover from beef stew) and some leftover roasted/grilled potatoes from Sunday.


I also may have broken into the brownies I made for myself and DH as our “snow food”

Just a taste…


(You have to love my funky amoeba-styled 1962 countertops.)


I spent most of the afternoon and evening with this…


… and wouldn’t have it any other way!



Dinner tonight was wild caught/sustainable sockeye salmon, wild rice, and steamed broccoli/cauliflower mix….and somehow it really hit the spot!


I loves me some wild rice!



Finally, the dessert I’ve wanted for days…a brownie, topped with a scoop of cookie dough ice cream!



Worth every calorie and gram of sugar.


I didn’t do anything strenuous today besides help DH. I had anticipated I’d be back at the gym on Thursday, but having seen the conditions outside, I’m not so sure that’s going to be an option (even if the gym opens!)

So I think my plan tomorrow is 2 mini yoga sessions (20 minutes each) and maybe one of these infamous living room boot camp workouts I keep hearing about…

We’ll see how I feel!
