It’s a blustery day here!
So, it seems our Chicago friends are all under snow right now. You all are so lucky. We had an ice storm last night that covered everything. The trees had an inch of ice on each branch. The driveway was a complete sheet of ice (unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of Michael taking the sled and going down the driveway. It was quite funny). Even our dish was covered, which meant my TV went out a few times. Yes, of course I tried to get my dear husband to go out there and fix it. Which, God bless him, he did try (ladder on ice, not a good combo…trying to spray hot water on the dish).
Today, all is well except for some wind (and an icy driveway). It’s TJ’s birthday (the DOG). Kids were sad that I didn’t plan any special baking or treats for her, but she is just lucky that we have let her live here for 5 years, haha! Especially since even this morning she was naughty, and chewed a hole in Alyssa’s coat. Apparantly there was a little leftover bite of granola bar. Dumb dog.
Last night we had a delicious dinner. I made some blackened salmon and some pico de gallo rice pilaf. It was delish! Here are the recipes if you are interested:
