Scenes from a snow day

22 Jan

It’s a good day when it’s a snow day…even though we have to make it up.
See look, we actually got snow.  It wasn’t pretend!

Love to drink coffee out of my Polish Pottery mug.  Fits perfectly in my hand.

Of course I have to include a picture of Bond.  I don’t think he was quite as enthused that I was home, but he dealt with it.  He is also keeping close tabs on that back leg of his…  It’s gotta mind of its own!

Apparently doing the snow dance yesterday worked because when I woke up this morning; I saw this…

I see baking, laundry, homework and general lounging around in my future.  Bless you Virginia Beach for not having any real way to remove the snow!

Wordless Wednesday

9 Feb

Hey, look at that!  I’m actually going to do a Wordless Wednesday on a Wednesday.  What a novel concept.

I thought I would devote this Wordless Wednesday to someone you may or may not know yet.  This person loves to dress up., likes his martini’s, and is very suave.  This someone is my cat Bond.  Yes, James Bond

We got Bond from the SPCA back in October of 2007?  I think that’s right.  We were looking for a black kitten who was like the cats both Leanne and I had left back in Ohio.  We looked around in the different kennels and saw lots of adult cats, not really what we wanted.  Finally someone from the SPCA asked us what we were looking for and we told him.  He took us over to a glassed in room with lots of kitties and said, “How ’bout that black one?”  We responded with, “Which one?”  He was pointing to a black and white cat underneath about 4 other cats.  Oh, of course, that one!  Enter Bond!

He’s grown up a little since then, but is still just as cute!

We tried a bow, he just wasn't having it.

He can be a little crazy, but we love him all the same!  I highly recommend adopting your pet from your local SPCA or ASPCA (My Bob Barker plug).  There are a lot of good kitties, dogs, and other animals that need homes.

School News

All you teachers out there in the Virginia Beach area have better be doing your best snow dance!  We are supposed to get some snow and I want at least a delay of some sort.  Come on teachers!  Dance with me!

I asked one of my students if he wanted the day off tomorrow.  He responded, “Yeah, because then I wouldn’t have to come to school.”  This doesn’t sound all that exciting, but he said this statement with a high leg kick.  That.  Was exciting.
