Back Again……….

Standard

Mr. Weather Dude said Tuesday night that Wednesday would be cold but there might be a “dusting” of snow to the north and west…………uhhuh………..yeah……….OK……….I can work with that!   Right?   Wrong!    If that was a dusting we got today – even though it was only an inch or so – I’ll be a monkey’s uncle (and that would be interesting since I’m a CAT!!!!).

Just a bit of snow early on – didn’t stick to the roads in our town – and out here it looked like this:

Not much on the Leyland cypress at the top of the driveway......

Not much on the Leyland cypress at the top of the driveway……BIG flakes though!

Seriously………….why not say “there’s a chance of snow throughout the Washington, DC region tomorrow”………..then we’re prepared…………we sorta know that we very well could have snow.  Plans could be made accordingly.  BUT NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Good thing my Mom and Dad are retired and didn’t HAVE to go somewhere because the “dusting” we got turned out to be VERY slick……….Thank heavens for 4-wheel drive because my Dad – believing that there would be if ANY snow, a “dusting” left the house to run a lot of errands……..he was inside a store shopping for an hour and came out to a snowstorm of sorts…….BIG FAT JUICY FLAKES – no dust in sight.  HAHAHA     He got home alright of course and made it up our uphill driveway thanks to the Blazer……..

So you know how I complain all the time about the weather?  (If you don’t know that you should because I’m either griping about the rain or the snow or the temperature!)   I’m registering a complaint about the weather this time for sure.

Maybe I’m just getting really crotchety in my old age……….maybe I should just be glad I’m here PERIOD regardless of what’s going on with the weather.   After all, Mom and I were snug inside the house – I had access to her lap when she wasn’t on the computer – so why should I complain?

MAYBE just because I CAN complain………….age has its’ privileges after all!!!

Today is the day I’m heading to the slopes……………..Cat Scouts is having a “Winter Wonderland” so I hope you’ll excuse me if I cut this short……………after all, I have to shove as much bacon inside before I head down to the local regional airport where a fellow Scout is picking me up in his Dad’s plane to take me (it’s a small jet not a puddle jumper like my Dad has!!!) to the location for our event!   I think if I eat this, I should get plenty of bacon for energy right?   Ignore the bottle of Wild Turkey behind the sammich – that’s not mine…….no way!

GIMME!!!!!!!!

GIMME!!!!!!!!

I’ll share some photos from our trip on my blog either Sunday or Monday…………………..can’t wait!!!

I hope a little bacon comes your  way today – you know SATURDAYS ARE FOR BACON………….you do know that by now I’m sure………………and if by some strange quirk of fate you don’t eat or like bacon then whatever your “substance of choice” might be – I hope you get some!

Oh No…..Snow!

Standard

Remember me telling you that our snow was GONE?  Well it came back…….I thought once that stuff melted it was gone but apparently at night when you go to sleep, the sneak back onto your lawn!   This is news to me – or maybe I just never noticed that before.   I had NO snow yesterday and this morning:

January Snow Flurries

Tuesday morning…….

Huh??????  More snow?

Wednesday morning!

Go figure………..you CANNOT trust snow………that’s what I’m saying!

Snow Is Sneaky 

I’m starting to have dreams of SUMMER……….beaches………..sunshine……….thinking maybe this year for my Blogaversary in May, I’ll do a beach party…..yeah I know – it’s not really the heart of summer then but so what?   I looked through my photos for some beach shots……….made me want to do a beach party even more – what do you think??

So yes indeed…………..this winter stuff and sneaky snow better STOP because I get cranky if I don’t get what I want…………….no more Mr. Nice Guy……………I want some sunny days and no more sneaky snow.

Have a SUNNY day if you can, and if not – be like me – get grumpy about it!

Hugs, Sammy

P.S.   Today is my friend Gracie’s birthday so if you stop by her blog HERE, and wish her a happy one, I bet she’d just LOVE that!!!!!

Promises, Promises

I promised that tomorrow’s Teaser would be one that SOMEONE would win – right?  After last week when the very first Teaser of 2015 put everyone in a tailspin, I vowed to make THIS week an easy Teaser.   I think I’ve done that……………..so you’ll just have to wait until tomorrow morning – at a time chosen by ME – when the Teaser will “go live” and you’ll have a chance to be First Right Guesser!

This week I’m SURE someone will win these………….the new 2015 BIG GREENIE was very popular last week (so to speak), but these two are getting lonely (and dusty) on the badge shelf so be ready tomorrow OK?

Meanwhile, our snow is being VERY stubborn…….it’s still here…….days and days of frigid temps not only mean I’m staying inside more than ever BUT that the snow is hanging on……We only  have a couple of inches of the stuff but it’s refusing to vacate the premises!

Thanks to everyone who said yesterday that they didn’t really think my “thinning hair” was a big deal……well, if you ask my Dad what he thinks about HIS thinning hair, you’d think the world is coming to an end……….but I sort of lost a bit of hair when I lost a bit of weight and if that was the consequence then I’m alright with it.  I do not limp as much without the weight on me….so that’s a good thing!    Mom says you can see in my face that I’ve lost some weight……….just two pounds over the past year.   No biggie!  I’m still adorable so who cares?!?!?!
