snow snow snow snow!

even though thursday wasn't our first snow, it def felt like it. it was the perfect flakey, fun, light snow that draws children and adults alike out of the houses and into the snow banks. everything smelled wonderful and wintery. i was smiling so much on my walk from the bus in the snow that i actually laughed out loud. there is something romantic about stepping knee deep into snow while tipping your head back to catch some flakes on your tongue. you feel very young. 
today, it is snowing again. but it is an angry, harsh snow. the kind that hurts your face and makes the sharp snow banks that grab your legs when you step into them. this is the type of snow you can hear against the window. needless to say, there will be no leaving the house today. it is days like today that make me wonder out loud how the native americans survived here for so long. 
here are some pics from the last few weeks:

one of the panini we made when we were too lazy to cook one night. i sautéed some red onion, zucchini and red peppers with thyme and basil and added provolone cheese as a binding agent. it was amazing. panini has been on our weekly menu ever week since then. on a side note, my sister would like everyone to know that there is no such word as "paninis" since the plural of panino is panini.

sasha, y-h and tarah at pops for a girly catch up dinner! it was one of those dinners were we laughed so hard that we stopped conversation around us. check out my yelp review for the meal run down. so so good. another gem in the south end. sigh - i love eating out.

(this was the dessert at pops.... you can see how get an idea of who rich the tart was - the dish was not that deep but could still support the spoon. the dish next to it was filled with whipped cream. double sigh.

and here are some shots from my walk to the bus stop friday morning. i was tempted to take some of copely when i went to run errands, but was pressed for time. so you get my humble street and will have to take my word about how wonderful the city looked.

today is the stay in the house, cuddle and watch tv kind of day. we dined on waffles and breakfast hash this morning and will be roasting some squash later on for a soup. all those smells mixed with the tree and this morning's coffee are filling every room. so few people can claim to live with so much content.
