Ponytail and glasses kind of day!

Today is one of those days where one wears their most comfy clothes (not necessarily pjs, in this case, I have on my favorite pair of yoga pants and LSU sweatshirt), hair is in a ponytail and glasses instead of contacts!

Yesterday and today was supposed to be the "big" ice storm!  Instead it just turned into very cold, overcast, rainy days.  Schools, businesses, and state and city governments are closed down.  As I write this, I am looking out my balcony window and I see a very heavy fine rain.  Ok, maybe there is some "winter mix" in it but it just looks like rain to me! 

It's been a movie kind of day so far.  It's only 11:30 and I've already watched Moonstruck with Cher and Nicholas Cage and Mr. Deeds with Adam Sandler and Wynonna Ryder.  Up next, Cutting Edge!  I know, very odd assortment of movies but entertaining none the less! I haven't had to pull out any DVDs yet! 

Since I am stuck inside for the time being, I am working on my stitching, the laundry, and may even pick up a book to read a chapter or two.  I FINALLY finished Trinity, the book that my Dad wanted me to read.  It was totally out of the norm for me to read that type of book.  It was historical fiction, which I do read but it had very little romance in it.  Well, it shouldn't.  It was about the Irish Republican Army.  I'm very glad I read it and it gave me great perspective on that particular movement but it was very HARD to get through it! So now, I have moved on to Lord of the Rings.  Or at least I am trying to.  I just finished the prologue and am posed to begin chapter 1.  And yet again, I am just not getting into it!  My friend Jill is currently also reading it and enjoying it.  I just don't know what my problem is with that book.  It is like I have an aversion.  I'm going to have to just sit down and start reading it and hope I get past the first chapter.  It is one of the books on my list of those that need to be read!

It has been so cold that Duke will go out only if his sweatshirt is on.  That's a biggie.  He is not a "clothes wearing" kind of dog.  Despite my efforts to dress him in cute stuff.  He is just too macho for that! LOL
Here he is in his Harley Davidson sweatshirt. He's even taken to wearing it in the house. 

I have been stitching on The Kiss by Mirabilia.  I should be working on other projects but this one is such an easy stitch.  It is quite enjoyable to work on it and see the image slowly appear on the fabric. I am hoping to finish up the bottom portion this weekend.

All this yucky weather and posts from my friends who live up north, make me so glad that I do not live north of I-10!  I couldn't imagine having these super cold days for more than a week at a time or not be able to leave the house because of huge drifts of snow!  I hope that those who are currently experiencing all of these snow storms that you are safe, warm, and dry!!!
