Wednesday was my first (and probably only) snow day. I work in a hospital and it never closes but since I live an hour north of Birmingham and my outpatient clinics are closed- I was able to take PTO- good thing too because we got around 8 inches of snow in Jasper! I’ve never seen it snow so much here since we didn’t live in Alabama in the 1993 blizzard era.
I took advantage of my time and went to the gym at 8:00 am since the snow was predicted to start around noon. Janey and I met J.T. for lunch at Cracker Barrel where I attempted to eat healthy and break out of my normal meal of eggs and turkey bacon by ordering an omelette. They have a delicious Southwest omelette that was really too tasty to have been healthy so I considered it breakfast and lunch. Snow days call for extra calories anyway, right? She did let me sub the bacon for turkey sausage in the omelette which was a great idea! Healthy modifications to this beast will take place next time!
Later that day, it started to snow so quickly that I went to stay with Katy (Anna’s sister in law) a little earlier than I planned. She was house sitting while Anna and Jan are in Disney World. We had so much fun playing outside and building a snow man complete with strawberry eyes, a banana smile, celery arms, and of course, a carrot nose. Really, Janey built the snow man and I practiced my photography skills. Not sure that I will ever figure out this ISO camera speed thing…
I saw some pretty great snow people, including an Olaf that rivaled the real deal…What did you make your snowman out of?
