It snowed big snowman-making flakes early this morning so we decided to have a little fun with the snow today. The neighbors made a KC Royals Snowman (he is a fan and sells tickets to companies for fun in retirement) and in true spirit of keeping up with the 'Meklers', we thought we'd make a snowman of something that reflected us. What better than a WHITE SNOW WESTIE? If there was more snow, we probably could have built a giant SnowBuster and SnowAthena, but since Louise is white and small, we decided to make a SnowLou. Not bad for a 15 minute creative snow venture, huh? We thought it turned out pretty cute...Lou agreed.
Punxsutawney Phil says we'll have 6 more weeks of Winter. We're all a little depressed about it, especially Louise. She longs to sit outside on the deck and squirrel hunt instead of passively watching the squirrels from inside.
Athena seeks out any tiny patch of sunlight shining in the window that she can find. A typical cat trait, I know, but Athena basically has no fur! She's like a sundial...she follows the warm sun rays wherever they go and I can predict where she is in the house depending on the time of day.
Buster...well...Buster is indifferent. He likes all kinds of weather. He's got the coat to handle the winter weather and loves to play in the snow. In the summer he'll just shed (ugh!) and gladly exchange snow for his doggie pool.
Mark and I? Sooooo ready for warm weather. It's this time of year that any CA native that says they 'love the seasons' will inevitably curse the cold weather and not so secretly admit that they miss the standard year-round 60 degree averages of non-seasonal CA.
We will ALL be counting down to the exit of the winter blahs.
