My aunt is visiting us all the way from Los Angeles, so we had a big family get-together on Wednesday at my other aunt and uncle's house. We had all kinds of fun listening to music, playing with the dogs (there were three) and eating Korean food.
And then the power went out.
It had been snowing pretty hard since we had arrived, there was about ten inches by the end of the evening. We didn't have electricity for about 14 hours, and the roads were too snowy and slushy for us to get back home. Thankfully we were prepared for the snowpocalypse and had brought sleeping bags in the car, so we just spent the night. By morning the snowplows had cleared the streets, so we could finally go home. The funny thing is that while my aunt and uncle's entire neighborhood had no power for hours, my neighborhood (about 15 minutes away) only had a short power-outage for about ten minutes.
On the bright side, I had tons of fun running around with my little cousins. Hide-and-seek is a LOT more fun when the whole house is dark.
This morning it snowed another inch or two, so I went out to play in all the lovely white fluff with my dog, Rico. Our backyard is just bee-oo-tiful right now because of all the snow on the trees, I want to take some pictures with my really nice camera once it stops snowing.
|I am wearing one of my Dad's old ski sweaters. I have a thing for chunky, oversized sweaters, but this one is by far my favorite. It's deliciously huge and warm, and I love it. Also, the color reminds me of oatmeal.|
The only thing that I don't like about snow is that it turns to slush in your shoes and sometimes burns when your dad rubs a handful it in your face. I also don't like it when it's yellow. Among other things, it kinda ruins the monochromatic-ness, y'know what I'm sayin'?
Anyways, on to the relevant part of this post.
Today my mom came downstairs wearing the most lovely colors. I convinced her to let me take a picture, but she doesn't want me to include her face ("nurr I'm old and hideous," she says.)
The colors in this picture are a little bit off. In real life the cardigan is a bit more olive-y, and the shirt underneath is a little more mustard-y. At any rate, I loved the combo so much that I ran upstairs and put together my own mom-inspired outfit. I just realized that I'm out of daylight and probably can't get any decent pictures, so I'll have to try again tomorrow.
Until then, see you later.
