Fri-Yay Snow Day!

Who’s the worst blogger in the land?? *points to self* I'm still unmotivated but thought I would do a quick update.

We’re having a snow day (weekend really, with blizzard warnings!) I haven’t been in a significant snowfall in a few decades Luckily, I don’t have to go anywhere and we’ve been enjoying chasing snowballs in the backyard. Kai LOVES the snow and Ripley is intrigued - asking to go out non stop to see the snow but then doesn't want to walk in it lol

This is my new favorite picture of Kai!


I’m actually getting some reading in. I’m listening to the audio of Black Buck by Mateo Askaripour (Goodreads) It’s super interesting so far thanks to the fantastic narration of Zeno Robinson as 22 year old Darren. He's intelligent but unambitious Starbucks barista who is discovered by the tech start up Sunwun CEO. Darren is brought into a cult like atmosphere of aggressive selling techniques and a wild work place.

Despite the subject matter, it’s been a funny, satirical and biting exploration of work culture and racism.

And I’m also reading my physical copy of You Had Me at Hola by Alexa Daria (Goodreads) and it is so sweet and lovely.

And I’m whipping up a mini 6 inch German Chocolate Cake for Valentines Day. Wish me luck – I hate baking lol

What are you all up to?

    1. Thanks Mary! They really loved the snow until it turned to ice lol

      But liked when it turned to slush - although I didn't like that part.

  9. Oh! I have been LOVING your pics on Insta of the pups and snow. I remember the first year I lived in Seattle... it snowed about 2 inches and the whole place shut down. Then a few years later, we got a foot of snow - it was crazy, roofs collapsed. I hope you continue to have fun and enjoy the weather!

    1. Thanks.

      Yeah - they have NO idea what to do with snow out here lol It seems like the consensus is to just wait until it goes away. They barely plowed roads or parking lots and didn't shovel sidewalks.

  10. I'm working on getting my blogging mojo back, trying to be a part of the community again. I got sucked into Bookstagram and neglected my dear blog! That is a cute pic of Kai. Love the snowy face!

  12. I think I'm slowly rising to challenge you on the "worst blogger" category! lol I just can't at the moment.

    I envy the snow! The UK got covered in the stuff recently and my area got nothing. Not even a flake. It was ridiculous. I LOVE snow. :(
    The Kai picture is adorable. I loved the video of them chasing Kevin on Instagram too.

    1. At first it was fun but our area doesn't usually get any and was totally unprepared so we were literally stuck in our house for 4 days. Couldn't even walk down the street because of ice.

      Bad bloggers unite!! Lol

  13. Omg that pic of Kai ❤️❤️❤️ Milo likes to play in the snow but he’s such a knucklehead and has a wonky knee that pops in and out so I’m always worried he’s going to hurt himself. But it’s so cute to watch them frolic (or want to come back in immediately lol).

    Oooh Black Buck sounds really interesting. Added to Goodreads list!

    1. He's the sweetest ball of floof :-)

      Ripley is, shall we say... not very graceful lol

      I just finished Black Buck and I freaky don't know what to make of it. It would be an excellent discussion book.
