Snow Day

Hello all!   It's Emily today to tell you what has been going on.  First off, Mommy and some friends went out yesterday afternoon to help a friend celebrate a birthday.  
They had a yummy meal and the birthday girl received a brownie cupcake with whipped cream.  There was even a sparkler on top.   Mom said it was beautiful!  After that they went out for a bit of shopping.  First on the agenda was a pit stop at Chapters.  
Mom saw lots of books there she wanted but she wants to see if she can get the titles for free at the library first.  Clever Mom.  Always trying to find a way to buy us felines more treats!   This book made her giggle.   That woofie is crazy pants, I think!
Mom also loved this pitcher.  She thought it looked fresh and spring like.  She was good again and resisted the temptation to purchase.  She did find a book she liked on the bargain shelf and with her reward points was able to buy that book for $1.99.  Mom may also have picked up some tea.  She just can't seem to help herself when it comes to tea, folks and felines.
So, now on to Monday and the bad storm.  Mom found out that her workplace was closed for the day and she had a snow day!  She bundled up in her warmest clothes and headed out.
 These are stairs covered in snow.  We think it looks a bit like a ski run!

The rubbish bin was also swirled up in the white stuff! 

 The park was beautiful covered in a fresh carpet of sparkling white snow!  
 This woofie seemed NOT to mind the cold stuff!
 Mom loved walking through the fir trees.  She said the sound they make when the wind blows through is like the sound of ocean waves-both sweet and a bit sad at the same time.  It was restful just to hear it.   She finally got tired of trying to break a path through the almost knee deep snow and came home to clean, nap and take care of our feline needs.  Which reminds me.....
I have my ablutions to take care of! 
Take care and stay warm!


  1. The doggy in the snow PROVES that woofies are crazy pants!
    The REAL Maple Syrup Mob xxxxx

  2. Beans are funny creatures aren't they Emily? We thinks a snow day means beans should stay home and take care of their kitties every whim, not go marching about in the snow.

    Oh well at least she came home the same day.

    Have a great day!

  3. At least your mom's employer has some sense, whereas our human's employer does not. Sure wasn't a snow day here!

    Lovely winter photos; your mom makes what our human calls winter h*ll look good. LOL.

  4. Being a Weenie dog, I'm so lucky it doesn't ever snow in Florida because I'd be buried and not to be seen again until the spring thaw!!! :)

  5. Your Mama takes lovely photos. We love the park bench/park photo. Really beautiful! And Emily, have we mentioned what a beauty you are lately?! You are! :)
