Lazy Week

I have to confess to you guys that I've done very little reading this week.  It's weird, but I always seem to read less when I have more time.  We've been snowed in since Monday, so I haven't had to work at all this week.  But for some reason I've ended up reading a lot less.  I've done a ton of crossword puzzles and watched some tv and movies.  I also took a few naps.  But my main project while we were snowed in had nothing to do with books.  I don't typically pimp my other blog, but today I'm going to because I don't have anything book related to post.  So enjoy these snow pictures from my backyard!

Gorgeous, untouched snow on Monday morning

Down by the creek

The closest we came to playing in the snow - we aren't big fans of cold and wet unless you're talking about a swimming pool.

More gorgeous pictures of the back yard before the dogs got into it.

Sweet little puppy prints (that are almost as big as my shoe prints)

Dexter looooves eating snow

Dex is a huge weenie about getting his feet dirty (we have to drag him out to potty when it's raining), so we were sure he wouldn't like the snow.  But it turned out that he loved it and Chief, our mud-loving pup, wasn't so thrilled.
And one last picture by the creek.  I know it takes longer to load big pictures, but this one is so pretty I just had to make it big.


  1. AH, so pretty hun. I have mad snow up here too. It snowed again the other day. I've yet to shovel the yard, yikes. But I've yet to need to leave either.

    Today I posted a review of a grand Steampunkery Book!  Please do check it out, I highly recommend Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar if you want Steampunkery and a mix of many genres.  A new favorite... indeed a huggable book!

    Where the Mad Scientist can be found behind the bed chamber doors!

  2. I have to saw, the amount of snow you have would never cause a snow day up here. heeehee. We have twice as much and everything is still running!
    Makes me laugh.

  3. Any snow in Georgia causes everything to come to a complete standstill. We don't have plows or anything like that to clear streets. Want to hear something really crazy? I've never seen a snow shovel in real life. I've seen them on tv and movies, but never in a store or anything. I don't know where you'd even go to get one because stores in GA don't have them, even in winter.

  4. Oh and Mad Scientist, I definitely plan to check that one out! This is my year of steampunk - Bestie and I are attending our first Con in February!
