We have snow.

It’s over Pippin’s head – as you can see. Even Moose is in up past his belly. Amendment – We have a LOT of snow.

Last night I was remembering how noisy snow is when you live in a city. The plows operate all night long, people are out shoveling sidewalks at all hours. It can be hell to sleep. But here snow only adds to the silence. It was so quiet here, so serene, and so beautiful I could almost forgive the horridly cold weather we’ve had the last three weeks. I have some solar powered twinkle lights on a tree outside. They are so pretty – they glow through the layer of snow. I like them best in winter when the leaves don’t hide their light.

I’m working from home – such a luxury. (Yes, I’m taking a break at the moment.) I’ve got all day to do what needs to be done while watching the snowfall and being grateful I don’t have to drive anywhere.

I’ve hired a dog trainer to help me with Pippin. Mostly I want her to have a rock solid recall so she stays safe and I’m not late to work when she’s full of piss and vinegar. Yes, I was a professional dog trainer – but let me tell you, things have changed. Also, I no longer like the kind of training I was taught. And Pippin is a case. A terrier’s terrier. And Frankly, I’m lazy and this kind of training is more fun with less effort. Wish me luck.

I’m in the process of two home parties: An online Tupperware Party. If you need Tupperware go here: Tupperware  Okay, that link wasn’t working Go Here and RSVP NO and you’ll have the option to order online:  http://order.tupperware.com/pls/htprod_www/!twx$eparty_ctl.p_invitation?pv_eparty=ddcdc94287118b6e65ef9f289e87d11e&pn_guest=4944324

A Lia Sophia Jewelry party (I’ve never done one of these before) if you live in my area and want to attend on Feb 23 drop me a line and I’ll send you an invitation. Otherwise you can order online here: Lia Sophia (Oh well, I can’t figure out my Lia Sophia link so it will just have to wait)

And of course if you’re looking for my books go here: Kate’s Books.

Enjoy your day, stay warm, and only drive if you absolutely have to. Oh, and Happy Valentines Day.

I have Tupperware needs! The link is not right, please fix so that I can order, because hey, just a few days ago my mother asked me how we got it now that no one had house parties any more.
