Thoughts on a Snowy Saturday Morning

It’s snowing today.  It has snowed a bit here and there this month, but the first really significant amount of winter is expected today – 3 to 6 inches – although I realize that amount wouldn’t be considered “significant” by many of you.

My empty shepard’s hook in that picture, as well as Robin and Bob, have been reminding me that I still need to get out and replace my bird feeder.  The squirrels destroyed mine last summer and I never got around to replacing it.

My blog post title reminds me vaguely of a favorite children’s book I used to read with my girls: A Summery Saturday Morning. Quite the opposite today.

My blog post content today gets some inspiration from Kathy:

I was following my usual Saturday morning  routine, drinking coffee and reading blogs.  I knew I wanted to post today, but the thoughts weren’t quite jelling in my head.  Kathy wrote a post about an ordinary day, but made it extraordinary with her writing skills.  I don’t have Kathy’s writing skills, but sometimes I can tell an interesting story.  Hell, maybe this won’t be too interesting, but I think it will satisfy my desire to blog today!

After noticing the snow and the tight rhododendron leaves this morning, my thoughts turned to the somewhat evil purchase I made:

Have you heard of Paczki (pronounced “poonch-key”) before?  They are crazy, over-stuffed Polish donuts that are only made in the few weeks before Mardi Gras:

Our local supermarket chain, Big Y, makes a big deal about them every year, and every year I get suckered into buying a box.  I regret it after I eat them.  I’ve got that cruise coming up in April – paczki will NOT help me look alright in my bathing suit!  I think I better spend some time doing this today:

Wii players!  Highly recommended for a fun  workout game!  The different songs you can play even give you “sweat levels” so you can gauge how much of an aerobic workout you might get.

A snowy day also brings opportunities for  watching the furry ones enjoy themselves:

Gotta love a doggy snow-beard!

And this picture has absolutely nothing to do with anything I’m writing about today, but I still find it blog-worthy:

(What do you think, Kathy, a step in the right direction? 😉 )

Well that was a thoroughly disjointed and rambling blog post!  Enjoy your Saturday, snowy or otherwise!
