Back home in Missouri, they are bracing for a "snowpocolypse".  Apparently, they've declared a state of emergency and called in the National Guard.  Here in Denver, we've gotten only about 2 inches of snow so far, but it is supposed to snow all night.  I love snow but the temp is the real problem.  The HIGH tomorrow is -2 degrees.  Two below zero Fahrenheit.  I can't remember the last time I've seen a temp like that.  Here's what we've got going on right now, according to the handy dandy outside thermometer I got the hubby for Christmas:

9.9 degrees, people. Where I come from, that's cold.  The "max 19.4" reading is the warmest it has been over the past 24 hours or since 8am or something.  Either way, its pretty darn frigid.  They've closed some schools already but I'm not holding my breath for a snow day.  But it would be REALLY nice to get one.

Two for one

I've been sick with what I'm pretty sure is a sinus infection and it sucks.  A lot.  So I missed posting my photo-a-day yesterday.  So today you get two!  My husband has this thing where he makes me leave the house when I don't want to.  I feel like poo and he decides its the perfect time to take the dogs to the park.  Today was the last warm-ish day for a while (if we can believe the weather people) so we did need to get the dogs out for a run... but I really didn't want to go.  Now, don't tell him, but the fresh air was good.  The walking was good.  I didn't feel like a million bucks afterward but I did feel a little better. 

Speaking of dogs, let me introduce you to ours...  This is Kaycee.  She's a 3 year old retriever mix of some sort.  She loves to run and play in the pond at the park (when it isn't frozen).

And here is Bella.  She's an 8 year old Corgi Chihuahua mix.  She hates the water but will lick you forever.

There will be many more pictures of our furry kids to follow.  So, if you don't like animals, don't come back.  Seriously.

Yes, I'm going to try this blogging thing AGAIN.  This time, no pressure (for reals, I mean it) and just fun.  I plan to get a late start on the "picture a day" thing and otherwise write whatever the hell I want to write about.  There have been a bazillion changes in my life since the last time I wrote here so we've got a lot of catching up to do! 

I'm going to try and not be hurt when I get no hits or comments (although, the perfectionist who has to "win" inside me may have a hard time with this part).  But if there is anyone out there in the interwebs that might stop by, I am still alive and kicking!

I started this blog as a food blog (that's why my links on the left are mostly food/cooking things.  I'll change that when/if I feel the urge) but found that everyone & their dog is writing about food and 90% of them are WAY more into it than I am.  So now, it's going to be all about ME again.  Okay, maybe about my husband & pets and other stuff too.  But probably not so much about food.

Please check back often and comment if the mood strikes.  I have turned on the thingy that makes me approve comments because, even when I haven't written in so very long, I'm still occasionally getting spam comments.  It sucks to go through & delete them but I don't want them on here.  I will save you from this annoyance because I care that much.

I'm not going to go back & edit my old posts so you'll just have to deal with pictures that aren't there and broken links in some cases if you feel the urge to go back & look at my old posts.  I think that about covers it for now.  I'm never sure how to end these things...
