We are feeling pretty snowed in today. A big winter storm dumped over 2 feet of snow in our area. This is our 3rd big storm we've had this winter. It's a good reason to do some baking! We turned this Long Island squash into bread. Long Island cheese is like pumpkin but not orange, more of a tan color. It tasted just like pumpkin bread. Yummy!
This is our cousin Rocky. He lives in upstate NY. We were looking at old photos and found this one that we thought was funny. Here he is wearing his new red snow shoes. He wasn't thrilled with the shoes that's why he was given a bone. Hehe. A good trade if you ask me.
I finally took the plunge to change my work situation. I was laid off over a year ago and I still have yet to find a full time job. I've never thought how hard it was to find employment again, but then again, this economy has been in the dumps. Then my friend suggested that I become a makeup rep. I've used Mark before and love their products. Their moisturizer is excellent! And in this harsh winter I need something that really moisturizes. It has SPF 30 so it protects you from the sun.
The cats have a routine. Every day they groom each other. It's so cute. I love the 2nd photo where Yaffa's tongue is sticking out. Adorable! We got a ton of snow today. But I'm tired of talking about it and hearing about it. All day, all we heard was Blizzard of 2010 all over ever news channel. We are thinking about warm weather, enough of this snow!
Yaffa is never much of a cuddler. She doesn't like to be picked up and hugged. She gets all nervous and starts waving her arms if you pick her up. But on this day, when I was on the couch on the computer, she kept on jumping on me and sitting on my lap and sitting on my shoulder. Ahh, here she is sticking her butt in my face. Yuk. She can be a cuddler on her own terms. She is so sweet. Here she is giving head butts.
