A little taste of the weekend

It snowed! Quite a bit, actually! I went to a wonderful party with a very good friend last night at another couple's house. It was supposed to be a snowflake cutting party complete with using old journal articles (Jenny is a grad student in the School of Journalism) from their research. Moe and I did not participate in the snowflake stuff, but stood in the kitchen shooting the shit with Jenny's husband and someone that he didn't know, but had a lot in common with considering they were both from the Region. I drank almost an entire bottle of wine, played a game called Scribblish, and then my DD (Moe) drove me home in a very light dusting of snow. It was beautiful and I can say it was probably the most fun I've had in awhile. I don't get to go out with friends very often because I feel guilty leaving Lex and D at home, but it felt good I won't lie :-)

Today, the light dusting of snow? Was quite a bit more than a dusting. I think we might have gotten around 3-4 inches. It was the first time that Lex was able to understand what snow is, and he asked to go outside to play. It was so much fun. He took his little car outside and ran around, threw snowballs, fell in the snow, giggled and played. It was joyous, and some of the pics were beautiful...particularly this one.

When he finally went down for a nap, I left to go workout, but before I go to the rec center, I stopped off at work to take some gorgeous shots of the Kirkwood Observatory so that I could get something good for the departmental holiday card. I have a pretty generic camera...nothing fancy, but I was certainly pleased with how they turned out...

I apologize for the crappy formatting of the photos...It's been a long time since I've used HTML. And I'm kind of drinking, so my patience for that kind of shit is WAY limited.


  1. I think that I like the first photo of the observatory best, but the one of Lex needs to be blown up really huge and put on a billboard on your way to work. That way you can smile during rush hour. :)

  2. Thanks! I think I used a variation of the one with the wreath on the lamppost. I submitted it to my boss to see what he has to say about it!
