Monday Off Madness





















'Out my back door'...wish a bunny would hop by and I might win an award for amateur photographer moment...


Can it be, for once the weather report came true...even my doctor called last night to cancel our appointment in anticipation of not leaving his home for patients on a Monday, and in person...my hubby answered a call that was 'Private Caller' on the screen of the telephone and the other end said "Hello this is Paul", as if my lover dared call my home phone, and not my cell!

He came downstairs knowing I was up to my elbow in food, and says "its for you sweeeeeetie" with a grin from who knows where... "Hello" I say, and in replay "Hey do not bother coming in tomorrow" says the other end. To my surprise it is my homeopathic and chiropractor, Dr. Bizzaro. We joke about if it will really snow ten inches, a record I have not seen since my holiday stay in 2003 with my son at hubby's family and a New Years Eve weekend flight home that was canceled, but if it doesn't I will see him. Evidently when hubby answered the phone all he heard was "Hello its Paul", and having no clue to who was at the other end...too funny!















'Hydrangea and patio furniture waiting for some spring cleaning'


What else was three Texas hillbillies going to do in 3 feet of snow? Well we all bundled up and headed out to find some yummy NYC restaurant to eat, and my son decided he wanted to shovel snow for the first time...and we got a free dessert each out of it! Kids, when they have to do it for a home chore you cannot find them anywhere right?

My hubby and I joked after I hung up the phone, and he said "Boy. your on a first name basis with the guy, do you call our regular doctor (Dr. Rota) 'Anthony'..." he stated with a hint of sarcasm. I reminded him that Paul was my client at the cafe long before I started seeing him professionally, and he call me 'Chef E', so there...blah!















'Who is this sexy stranger...'















'You cannot even see the skies for the powder, but he smiles for his close up'

As you can see we got that snow fall about 1 AM this morning or so...getting up for my nightly glass of water and bathroom fix I looked out the window. Then like a kid on Christmas Eve I jumped out of bed this morning and grabbed the camera. I wanted to share...and suddenly out of no where on skies and all bundled up a strange...no that's my silly husband who decided it was time to break out his cross country skies...




















'Of course he left for work after lunch, and a kiss...leaving this behind with a puddle of water to boot!...possibly for his maid to clean up, yeah right!

I think I will stay warm inside on my day off and catch up on my blog reading, maybe cook, or...
