Fooooooood!

It looks like the severe weather has come and gone. Yesterday, it snowed like crazy, then it rained. The cats didn't want to miss out on the action. They watched the snow and wished they could be in it. Being indoor cats, they have no idea how cold it is, and I doubt they would actually enjoy it. But it's fun to watch.


This morning, the sidewalks were iced over, and I didn't want to be outside either. Working from home is fun, particularly when you have feline help. Busy season has begun for accountants across the US, and just like last year, I present a picture of our tax specialist: Merlin J. Fuzzbutt, CPA. I do taxonomy, he does our taxes, and everybody has fun.


And then, I had a kitchen attack. Not just a little one. I'm talking the full-blown cookies and food kind. Behold the results: chocolate-chocolate chip cookies (with cocoa, chocolate chips, AND melted chocolate!) and pasta with sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and green beans. Very yummy.


Now, I'm going to sit down and knit. I haven't done any of that today or yesterday, but I think my mojo is coming back.

Sounds like you guys didn't get too hard with this storm, which is great! My kitties LOVE to watch the snow too, and one of them likes to eat it.

Mmmmm great weather for pasta and cookies! They look yummy

What is it about cats and snow? They are choking to get out in it because anything that fluffy MUST be fun, but when you toss their scraggly butts into a pile of snow, they come tearing back into the house giving you looks of extreme disapproval.

Tell them they're not really missing anything and to get over it. For the REAL.
