Gravity defying

No storm Juno hit here, there is no snow to shovel, and spring is actually right around the corner, so I've got no interesting weather-related news to share with you.

But don't worry, we don't get bored here in San Diego, with our near constant mild weather. No, we find all sorts of things to keep us busy.

My kids don't need snow for snowmen making, cause they have me for Cindy Lou Who makeovers

I think this one is the closest yet....

Right Around The Corner

Hmmmmm, what shall we talk about today?

Oh, I know!

Summer!

Sigh . . . only kidding.

I mean, we could talk about summer . . .

. . . we should talk about summer . . .

. . . but what good would that do us, really?

We had a bit of a snowdump here in New London on Monday and Tuesday . . .

. . . New London -- aka Storm Central.

And the intrepid Mistah Schleckah took a walk out into it . . .

Oh, hello Car . . . 

Hello Fire Hydrant . . .

Hello Montauk Avenue . . . 

Hello Adorable Shoveling Stranger . . . 

Hello Subie . . . 

Hello Deck . . . 

Oh, hello, Mistah!

I let Mistah do the trudging . . .

. . . while my view, on the other hand, was out this very window.
All. Day. Long.

And then, at 10 p.m., miraculously, the snow plow came by.
Hello, Snow Plow Man!

Oh dear.

Yesterday, though? The snow stopped falling, I returned to my usual walk downtown, and in the afternoon, I had the sun to accompany me on my walk back home . . .

A plowed sidewalk is a rare and lovely treat for a pedestrian . . .

Whoopsie! Sometimes those plowed sidewalks end abruptly.

I'll be walking down the middle of the road for the next few months.

Oh, it may look pretty, but I have just two words to describe those pretty icicles to you:

Bad. Attic. Insulation.

But finally? Our home.

It's really tragic that our new shovel is buried on our deck . . .

. . . but no worries . . .

. . . Summer is right around the corner.

nostalgiche

A couple of days ago, I went back to Rome.

I know, I know. Not really. But in my head? It was so great to be there.

I've been missing my mom and suffering from severe wanderlust lately.

I uploaded some photos from the posts I shared about our days in Rome,  (one two three), and they were automatically organized alphabetically. Why not?  At least 2 of my 3 followers are snowed in today, and I think they'll enjoy this nostalgiche, si?
