Well, we had a winter snowstorm--mostly Tuesday night--tada!!
Leah and Ian made it over for their visit on Wednesday because it had let up a lot. Leah put the charger on the Paseo and they came in for a nice long visit. (I even have videos today!)
Ian usually gets into Karma's "toy box" every time he comes over.
I think he mostly likes to take the top of the plastic box off and on--LOL!
I don't know how to move videos once I have them already on the post so the Ian videos are at the end.
We got the Paseo running! I had been out in the garage moving things on Tuesday, Leah finished moving the last of it, and once I could move the Paseo over there is now room for Dagan and Leah's Galant--tada! So, I don't have to worry about the Paseo keeping a charge or driving it on the snow and ice. Happy, happy me!!! They'll drop the Galant off in the garage before they leave for Henning on Tuesday (Dagan's dad's). What a relief! :)
Woke up Thursday morning--opened the blinds--and look what I found!
There had been quite the jackrabbit party during the night--LOL!
This isn't the clearest picture but the wind had blown a patch of grass near my patio half clear so that grass showed through the snow.
Quite the overnight feast for the jackrabbits, I guess.
I would have loved to see them cavorting about.
It must have been quite a sight!
All this evidence of bunny dancing...
...delighted me most of the day...
...until the snow and wind covered up most of the tracks.
Caught Miss Karma all fascinated by the noise in the hallway.
I think it was the blind lady in the wheelchair who lives across the hall. Maybe Karma thought Shirley might tap lightly on our door again to ask me if I could find something she dropped in the hallway. (I've helped her a couple of times and told her to come knock any time if she drops anything.)
And then this cloudy, dark morning...
...yup! They were back!!
Large ones--LOL! So I know for sure these are the huge jackrabbits I see on occasion--who are almost pure white now.
Guess we've got a regular Jackrabbit Nightclub thing going on out there while I'm sleeping.
I wonder if Karma has clue?
Does she peek out through the blinds to observe the shenanigans?
I rather doubt it. Because I think they'd flee if they saw Karma in the patio door. Doesn't look there was any fleeing involved. Yup! Jackrabbit Nightclub.
Now--on to the videos. :)
Got a super short one Leah sent me of Ian trying to figure out how to hang ornaments on the tree.
I took one of Ian on Wednesday.
Leah took one, too. (We had no idea she'd be recording the on-off game--but Leah mentioned the light and Ian ran around my chair--LOL!)
Well, just wanted to pop in and say hi. Doing laundry. It's 10 degrees out there! (That's -12C.) Dagan and Leah have seen the new Star Wars movie twice by now (last night and this morning), the sun has come out, it's a pretty day, and the Jackrabbit Nightclub is open for business tonight. ;)
Oh, Dagan's stopping by later after a doctor appointment to pick up the last DVD of Better Call Saul from Netflix. (They only have streaming anymore, but I knew they'd like seeing this now!) Were any of you Breaking Bad fans? Have you seen this prequel series? I'm really enjoying it.
Anyways, Dagan will give me a thumbs up or thumbs down on Star Wars.
Dagan saw the first Star Wars movie when he was three. His very first trip to a movie-theater, too! My first serious boyfriend from high school (we were and are still friends), Alan, had just seen the movie. He was soooo wound up! Told me Dagan just has to see this movie and offered to take us--right now! I wasn't sure Dagan was old enough to go to a movie theater but, to be honest, both Dagan and I were totally infected by our first exposure to StarWars fever and I agreed we'd go.
That's how we ended up having, literally, a front row seat to an experience we have never forgotten. No, I've never watched a movie that close up before or since, but the theater was packed and it was either that or sit way in the back row. Alan said the back row was not acceptable for this movie...and he was right. That opening blew us away!
I've also never been to a movie before or since where the audience oohed and awed--and screamed--and booed--and laughed...and then stood to clap and cheer and hoot when the force was with Luke!! Not like any proper Minnesotans I had even seen. I loved it! Dagan loved it! I hope this new one is pretty decent. (None of the rest of them have ever lived up to that first one IMHO.)
Anyways, have a great day--and may the force be with you. :):)
