This morning when I woke up and saw all the snow, I was so grateful that I work from home.
And then Pippa reminded me that I have a hyper dog, and I have to go outside anyways! I’m going to be spending a LOT MORE time outdoors this winter. Brrr….
It was too cold to just walk… so we starting jogging. The string came out of my Lulu hoody last winter so the hood doesn’t stay up. Wah!! We always meant to fix it, but I think the string was misplaced in the move. I hate it when that happens! I’m no good with the safety pin trick.
Eventually we warmed up, and ended up doing one our favorite 3-mile loops. I almost seriously wiped out because a huge bump in the sidewalk was covered by leaves. Thankfully, Pippa waited up, and I caught myself!
Boyd wants you to know that he REALLY loves the snow too. We actually have a really hard time getting him to come inside when there’s snow on the ground. Of course, last night it was because he was gnawing on a cardboard box…
Pippa and I spent the remainder of the afternoon in bed with my Macbook and a big stack of books – thanks to some cancellations. Snug as two bugs in a rug! Some of the schools are on fall break this week so some of my students are out of town, and some are in Mexico (good timing!!).
Apparently tonight is a major night for sports fans (not me!). Because Kevin is super nice and puts up with all my crazy plans, we decided to return to Fire on the Mountain for “date night” so he could watch the Vikings and the World Series. They have the best sweet potato fries! I just looked at my phone the whole time and wished I had a book. I always wonder why it’s socially acceptable to watch tv at restaurants but not read books. Life is rough. Maybe if I had a Kindle!
More chocolate tonight.
And more snow.
Oh my. Time to online shop for some more warm clothes. I see Moosejaw came out with some new jackets. I need to check out their store in Boulder sometime soon!
Do you like to watch any sports? Just the Olympics! And I like to go to Rockies games, but I wouldn’t really watch them on tv. Ever.
Run outside in the snow or retreat to gym? Well, GYM!!! Kevin blames me for training Pippa to enjoy physical activity. I should take a video of her when she’s trying to get me to tak her out. She’s incorrigible!
