TGIF - and More Snow in store!


I was amazed to hear on the news yesterday that it was snowing in 20 different states, and that they found 40lb goldfish in Lake Tahoe - something that has never occurred and can't be explained.  How weird is that?  Yet many people still seem to deny the fact that Global Warming is the cause.  I'm fascinated by all I read on the subject, although I do find it scary at times.


Yes, this is a look at our weekend beginning sometime Saturday afternoon. In fact this will be the (3rd) weekend we've had snow, and since we live in a condo and don't have to worry about shoveling or even clearing our steps, I'm really getting excited about being housebound with nothing to do but read and watch movies once again.  Do you mind being house bound?

I'll be finishing Ten White Geese; Gerbrand Bakker and Starting something new. Also hope to watch Argo.

This weeks indoor project will be some "book weeding" and "new recipes" if things go as planned. Whatever you do, I hope your weekend is perfect!

  1. We had our snow last weekend and that was enough for me. I hope it's our only snow of the season.

    I don't know how anyone who lives in the South can deny global warming. We've barely had any winter this year.

    1. It's nice ..."little winter", but you know you will pay for it in some way.

  2. I don't mind being housebound but then my kids are all grown and live elsewhere. I'd probably think differently is they were young and this was the third weekend in a row of being housebound lol. Enjoy your reading and movie watching!

    1. You raise a good point Mary. If I had little ones I'd be out and about or at least raedy for earplugs:)

    1. I don't mind the indoors in winter, summer I like to be out though.

  4. There's nothing like a snow day for getting caught up with reading and futzing around the house.

    We got some snow this week--hurrah--but it's supposed to warm up this weekend. In CO we need a lot more snow in the mountains if we have any hope of having a lawn or garden this summer.

    1. It is unusual that you need more snow in the mountains...ski areas must be hurting?

  5. I keep wishing for snow here though some people might want to bop me over the head for even thinking it. I honestly don't want a lot. We had such a bad snow two years ago it took hubby 12 hours to make a four mile journey home. He didn't roll in until almost one o'clock in the morning and then he got stuck on the corner of our street and had to dig himself out so that he wouldn't block stragglers who were still making their way home. I went out to help with an extra shovel, it was quite a night. We're supposed to have some snow later on but the weather men have been telling that to us for the last several times. Well, a long winded reply but now to answer your question, no I do not mind being housebound. Just as long as we have water and other drinks, and food to last us for a while, I can take a few days stuck inside and really enjoy it.

  6. Can you imagine if some kid's goldfish grew that big? LOL

  7. I love a good snow day! We've had a few here already, and the way this winter is going we might get a few more. I'm such a homebody it's nice when I actually have a legitimate excuse not to leave the house.

    1. Yes, why do we feel guilty to do what we want, or do nothing?

  8. We've had some low temps off and on (30s) and some frost and ice but no snow. We had snow twice in previous years which is really odd for my part of So Cal. We are really behind in our rain totals. We have storms but they aren't dumping much rain. I really hope we get some soon because a dry summer is So Cal means fire season is a sure thing.

  9. I don't mind being housebound. I too have a condo and no shoveling, plus our power rarely goes out. We're very lucky and I enjoy it!

    1. Yes, don't mind the snow -- especially on weekends, but ICE is another story.

  10. We ended up with 14.2 inches of snow over the last two days. It was fun to walk around in, but cleaning the car off this morning was a pain in my neck... and shoulders and knees.

    1. UGH, I'd hate to clean that much off a car. I'd try and get my husband to do it:)

  11. I think you will like Argo. Suspenseful! Cold and white outdoors. I'm indoors with a book:)

  12. Oh boy - I'm so jealous of the condo thing. We're starting to think about that too - but for now, lots of digging. Enjoy the storm and your book weeding!

    1. It is nice and it's quiet here too, a little noisier in summer with cookout and people on their decks and patios, but still nice.

  13. Sounds like a pretty ideal weekend to me! It's been snowing all week here, mostly lake effect, and more is on the way. Enjoy your time at home.

  14. We never have snow, living in Florida, but there is nothing I love better than a rainy and blustery day to be housebound and read like there is no tomorrow!

    1. It's like bad weather gives us the permission we need to do nothing or do something for ourselves. I feel that way all the time:)

  15. We've had a weird weather year too. Our snow keeps going to other parts of the country! Yesterday's storm only left a few inches. Maybe I can pretend I'm stuck and stay in and read. [evil grin]

    1. Last year we got off easy --snow-wise and cold-wise, we have to keep reminding us that we do live in New England.

  16. Huge ice storm where I am, really strange, but I think the gold fish tops that.

    1. Ice is scary, as loss of power is almost a given when that happens. Stay safe Melissa.

  18. This is exactly why I keep trying to talk my husband into a condo when we sell this house. So far, he isn't falling for it, but I should catch him sometime when he's been out snowblowing our two driveways and the sidewalk. We both hate cold weather now; I'm cold all the time. Enjoy your housebound weekend. I love days when we can stay home. We aren't supposed to get more than an inch of snow but they said we would have 1/2" at most the last storm when we actually got 8" of it.

    1. Barbara, there are a lot of pluses to condo ownership the older you get. Our complex is large and very very well managed; we have lovely grounds and really enjoy condo living.

    1. It was so windy earlier this week that face burned as I walked from the parking lot to my building at school - brutal. I have a feeling that it'll be warmer with the snow.

  21. Sounds like the perfect weekend! Stay warm and enjoy your time reading and catching up on all things media!

  22. Stacy - I'll be sure to take your advice; thanks - I need a break after a full week of work:)

  23. Wow! More snow!! Have a cozy weekend, Naida! :)

  24. 20 states and mine is not one of them? Darn! Seriously though...two mild winters in a row here in Tennessee has me convinced global warming is an issue, not to mention the 40 lb. goldfish you mentioned!

    Stay safe in all that snow! Have a great weekend. =O)

  25. I don't mind being housebound as long as I have prepared for it. The only time I get nervous is when my son HAS to go to work, but so far he's been able to make it out even if the snowplows haven't come down our road! I'm so ready for spring!

  26. We've had snow almost every other day or so. I honestly don't mind because I know we need the moisture and winter is supposed to have snow! Besides, it is such a nice alternative to the 100-degree heat we had this past summer.

    Enjoy your snowbound weekend!

  27. I'm glad you don't have to worry about shoveling and all … that makes it a lost more bearable!

  28. Well, before Gage I LOVED being snowed in :) Now it's a nightmare. Toddlers really want and need to be outside.
