Winter Spring

DSC00563It’s been the usual crazy weather winter. We go from winter to spring and back in one week. It’s a wonder I haven’t gotten really sick with all the weather change! We’ll be back to warm weather this weekend though, so I’m looking forward to the nice days. I’d like for spring to come and stay for longer.

Yesterday evening, we had a good bit of snow, so I was able to catch Rio watching it before she realized I was taking her picture. She’s funny about having her picture taken and acts like we’re trying to snap her soul from her or something. Anyway, she still seems to be mesmerized by falling snow, while the boys couldn’t care less. They just want to lounge on their humans and steal their warmth.

Enter March

"I'm watching you, Minion. Now, get up and feed me."

“I’m watching you, Minion. Now, get up and feed me.”

 
March felt like it snuck up on me, much like my cat in the morning, only it was nice enough not to pounce on me with 14 lbs. of weight. However, it brought a load of snow with it, so I’m not very happy with it yet. Once it brings me Spring all will be forgiven.

Even if it’s still cold here in Missouri, I’ll have a break from it next week. My roommate and I will be heading down to Florida to visit my family and a friend, so I’m hoping the weather will be nice while Katie and I are there. I know it’ll be a lot warmer, but Florida tends to be a little too rainy when I visit. Instead of Disney World, since we went there last year (twice even, but two different countries), we’ll be going to Epcot, so I’m looking forward to that! I haven’t been there in over 10 years if I remember right. I’ll be sure to take and post my trip photos! Maybe even in a timely manner.

Warmth?

It seems like we finally have a break from the cold weather! It felt nice yesterday and, even though it’s raining today, it’s still warm, so I’m not complaining. However, it wont last because another cold front is coming through, so it’s going to get cold and snowy again. Spring needs to get here faster.

I give those around me permission to smack me if I ever start complaining about the heat when we get into Summer.

February

This is why I can’t get any work done.

So hello, February! January seemed long, but also like it went by fast somehow. This month is supposed to be colder than last month, so here’s hoping it wont be too much cooler. Everyone, stay safe and warm!

I have a lot of personal goals to get through this month, so I might not post as much as I did last month. I’m still studying for the HiSET and hopefully I’ll be able to sign up for Spring classes at our local community college. Aside from that, I have a lot of crafting to do for my shop and for my friends. That might take longer than I’d like due to it being so cold and clay being harder to work with in cooler months, but I’m determined to get them done! I’ll post the results as I finish them.

Back to work I go and if you’re caught up in snow like I am, stay safe!

Snow Again..

Woke up to the sound of shovels outside of my bedroom window yesterday. More snow! Again, I want to skip the rest of winter, even spring, to get to the warmer weather of summer. I would just skip to spring, but spring here tends to be up and down with the temperature, so that’s just not good enough.

Honestly, I don’t mind snow or very cold weather until I have to go out in it, haha. I used to go out in it to look for good photo spots, but even that I’m not fond of doing anymore because it’s just too cold.

Here’s hoping this stuff melts faster.

Snow and Ice

As expected, we woke up to tons of snow. At least 5 inches to start with and it didn’t quit snowing until the evening. As much as I wanted to go out and take a lot of pictures, my body can’t handle the cold weather like it used to be able to. I stayed inside all day, only cracking the door now and then to snap a picture and quickly closing it after I was done.

It’s too dark for me to check the yard stick that we put outside, but I believe we got well over 10 inches of snow total. This mess of snow is just what’s outside our front door on the 3rd floor of our building.

And these lovelies are hanging from the top. It would be a bad time for anyone who happens to be under those if they break.

It honestly feels like we’re encased in ice and snow. Here’s hoping it melts soon and doesn’t start up again, though, I think there’s more on the way..

Bravely Default

Pre-ordered my copy of the collector’s edition of Bravely Default today. I hadn’t played the demo yet, but I downloaded it as soon as I got home. After playing it all night, I’m looking forward to the full release even more!

Since it seems like we’ll be snowed in tomorrow, we braved the grocery store and got a few things that we needed. It looks like my day will be spent finishing up a few shop orders and presents and then gaming since we won’t be going anywhere.

If anyone else reading this is going to be hit by this incoming winter storm, stay safe and stay warm!
