Every decade or so we get snow in McKinleyville. Here is the view outside our rental at about 11:00 this morning. There was a lot more snow earlier but I didn't take a picture then. I was taking it easy, having a snow day. That means staying inside, leisurely reading, not exercising, not putting makeup on and not doing my hair. I did finally take a bath and brush my teeth just so I could stand myself.I am in sweats and a sweatshirt and staying warm. I would love to make cinnamon rolls and have hot chocolate but I am on the Cabbage Soup Diet this week and that doesn't fall in that diet. Darn! (I am 2.5 pounds over the goal I set to be at for this time so have to resort to drastic measures). I usually don't fall for extreme diets but have found this works well to jump start a healthier (Weight Watchers) diet or to just lose few more pounds to keep me motivated on WW. I don't make the soup the way they do (it's horrible!) - I just make a regular vegetable soup with cabbage. What I really hate about the weather though is that the builders aren't working on my house!! Oh well, I did finish my taxes today and now I think I'll watch an episode of Oprah I taped, read a good book I'm reading (Snow Flower and the Secret Fan) and take a nap. Oh, and have some cabbage soup and vegetables. Yum.
