winter wonderland

I had the day off today, and it was a perfect day to have off. It's been snowing pretty much all day and right now the sky is that orange-y color it gets when it snows and there's got to be 7 inches on the ground. And on the trees. So pretty. Delightful. Amazing. I like it, to say the least.

I started out the day with cleaning out my closet (ouch) and doing dishes left over from our christmas party last night. There must've been 40 people in our place. And so this morning I washed 40 mugs that smelled like apple cider. And I felt nicely productive, which is good since I did nothing else I needed to.

Then I read my book, a Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch by Solzhenitsyn (and please don't ask me to pronounce any of that. I'm thinking of learning Russian just so I can pronounce the names in books.) I Harriet Beecher Stowe help to inform America of the conditions of slavery, Solzhenitsyn informed Russia of the Soviet prison camps. It's very interesting, to say the least.

Now I must sleep for I may have to shovel out my car in the morning since they have not yet plowed our road. At all. *fingers crossed* But, mom, the rodeo handles AMAZINGLY well in the snow. Much gratefulness your way.

It looks like we traded cars at just the right time. But no doing donuts or climbing steep icy roads in it! I wish I could figure out how to get yours into park! lol

I'm glad you had a nice party. It is a good thing your roomie has a mug obsession! That is crazy to have 40 mugs in your apt!!
