We took some kiddos to the National Western Stock Show today and had a hootin’ hollerin’ of a good time and we didn’t even have to wear a coat. It’s January and the temperature has been in the 70’s the last three days. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a great sunny day but come on people-where is the snow? This is Denver for crying out loud and Dan and I have invested a whole bucket of our lives and pocketbooks to those things called mountains and slopes to be more exact. We made it up to Copper this past weekend and had a lovely time because it was calm and clear but WARM. The snow was terrible but I did manage to catch a shot of some snow “dust” falling from a tree and that was the closest thing we got to fresh powder. Should I tell you now that my deep down secret wish for every day I wake in the wintertime is to have a massive blizzard? I think blizzards are the best and I wouldn’t complain one little bit if everything got shut down including Walmart and we had to drink expired Soy Milk from King Soopers. I say this because is has happened-it did happen and I wish, wish it would happen again. Please excuse my rant.
In other news, I am currently smack dab in the middle of a household revamp. I have moved, shifted, and messed everything up pretty good in hopes that I will eventually make things fit better. More to come on that topic as things progress and I move this filing cabinet out of the middle of the hall.
I also did a giant grocery run recently where I spent over three hours planning meals and shopping. When all was said and done, I had an entire trunk full of groceries and I was hungry. So instead of heading home to prepare a meal, I bought myself a hot dog, diet coke, and a churro from Costco (don’t worry, I took plenty of insulin for that one).
So, here’s to hot days in January, making messes, and $2.72 dinners from Costco. Yuck.
