I woke up today to single digit temperatures and mountains of snow. It’s days like these that I want to curl up in a cozy chair with large fluffy blankets and read to my hearts content (with snacks of course). My puppy on the other hand loves this kind of weather, he has to, his name is Snowball.
He also likes to play the piano if anyone is curious…

Some kids were grounded, but I never was. My mom inflicted a cruel punishment that I will never forget… she took away my books. I should add a note here: Hi Mom, I love you, you are the world’s most bestest wonderful mom. I just don’t agree with your parenting sometimes 🙂
