We got another 6-7 inches of snow in a blizzard that shut down Interstate 94 the length of the state from Minnesota to Montana. Some areas in North Dakota got 2 feet, so Fargo's was nothing compared to that!
It's a very heavy, wet snow. The plows were going all morning...scraping and digging out the parking lot.
Snow this time of year never stays on the ground long, though. ;)
Karma basically played with her bug, ate, and slept through the blizzard--LOL!
No cat worries for my girl.
I did finally renew my driver's license on Friday!! North Dakota has changed renewals from every four years to every six years, so I am good till 2019. Weird that they won't let you wear your glasses in the photos now? How can people recognize me? You know how coke-bottle-bottom-glasses people look like blind moles blinking with pinched eyes in the bright sunlight when you take their glasses away? Yup! I will look glassy-eyed and vacant--staring off into space--for the next six years--ROFL! Oh well. It is done. :)
I watched Life of Pi and Hitchcock this weekend. As I said, I read Life of Pi many years ago and was curious as to how they would approach the ending--but they didn't skip over it and left it in. I was so glad. That made the whole book for me. I'm sure a lot of people might not like it, because I remember a lot of controversy and discussion about the ending when the book came out. I don't remember every detail (and seeing the movie has made me want to read the book again), but I think they stayed fairly close to the book. I really loved the movie!
Hitchcock was interesting. A kind of personal look at him and his marriage over the time they were making Psycho. Since I am a fan of both Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren--well, how could it not be good!
I prioritized making up food and doing laundry this weekend over sanding davy board, but plan to get back to the journals this week. I also have been gradually visiting the blogs of my loyal commenters--and, as I have, I've been trying to find other ways of following you that would be easier for me than trying to keep up with the Blogger Reading List. To all of you who have the "follow me by email" box--bless you! Your posts will come directly to my email box and I won't miss any of them anymore! I wish everyone had that option on their blog.
A lot of blogs have down at the very bottom of the screen this "Subscribe to: Posts (Atom)" link. I click on it and have apparently subscribed--but does anyone have any idea how I ever get back to those subscriptions? I don't know where to find them? Am totally clueless. If anyone knows--help, please!
Well, that's it for a quick pop-in.
See you again soon! :)
"Refuse to fall down. If you cannot refuse to fall down, refuse to stay down. If you cannot refuse to stay down, lift your heart toward heaven, and like a hungry beggar, ask that it be filled, and it will be filled. You may be pushed down. You may be kept from rising. But no one can keep you from lifting your heart toward heaven."
