If it's [insert your favorite day here], it must be snowing

It has been snowing in fits and starts since yesterday afternoon, which means the roads are very slick and  there's an inch or so of accumulation. Just enough to be incredibly annoying.

Will. This. Never. End?

Punxutawny Phil lied, folks!!!!!!!

Ahem.

It's Friday morning. I have summoned all of my creative powers this morning and will be treating you to..... my random thoughts.

I knew you'd be pleased.

Random 1) Email traffic at work slows down considerably on Friday afternoons. We must all be staring blankly at our computers, dreaming about the weekend to come. It's like a collective sigh of relief.

Random 2) The puppy is a 50 pound monster -- at only four months old. I am thinking of putting away the antiques until he is older and there is not so much romping around. I calculated our dog food bill the other day and it stands now at $80 per month for the two dogs (it used to be about $30 for just Hank). I'm told that Charley's mother eats 12 (TWELVE!) cups of dog food per day. Charley is up to seven cups. And the "little" pup is STILL growing.

Random 3) Charley has taken to sleeping as close to me as he can get -- which means he is under the bed at night. Tim refers to him as a Mama's Pup.

Random 4) Number 4 will be arriving from Canada in just over a week and will be here for most of the month of March. Wedding planning, crafting, card-making, cooking, racquetball -- all are on the agenda. Can't wait!

Random 5) Grandbaby #9 is due in just a couple of weeks!! Each baby is unique and it fascinates me to see the traits they develop as they grow.

Random 6) I am now the proud owner of a Droid X. I am in love with it.

I never thought I'd say that about a cell phone. 

Random 7) It never ceases to amaze me that the dogs can stand perfectly still together at the door for several minutes while waiting to be let in the house -- and then commence another round of wrestling, snarling and romping as soon as they tumble inside.

And now, to work.

We've had rain today and weird fog. There is snow/icy mix in the forecast for Sat night into Sunday. I so hope they are wrong wrong wrong.

OH. MY. GOODNESS!! 12 cups?

9 grandchildren? Lucky you! It is fascinating to watch them grow up and see their unique personalities develop.

I love the random posts!

Have a blessed weekend!
