SNOW!

I actually slept in this morning! I couldn’t believe I slept until 8:30 this morning. The first thing I did when I got up was looked outside.. and take a look at what we found..

We have over a foot of snow.. I shovelled out the sidewalk so our poor dog had something to walk on and an area for him to pee in. If it keeps snowing like this I may have a snow day tomorrow.. I can’t imagine the roads and stuff will be cleaned out. If they don’t plow out our road there is no way I’ll make it. We paid someone $20 to clean out our driveway but that was 2 hours ago and its already blowed in and the snow is back up agains the garage where my car is parked.

I have no energy today just lazy and don’t feel like doing anything.. I’m glad I got everything cleaned and made yesteday. All I had left to do was make bran muffins, and thats just out of a bag and I just add water and an egg I think.. super easy.. I think I may just have to take a nap this afternoon before I start supper. I’m starting to get cabin fever though.. I need to do something with myself and Dan is starting to drive me nuts!

Oh well.. I really hope I go back to work tomorrow… haha

only 2 more days!

So yesterday morning Dan’s mom called and decided to switch her Christmas to tonight. Which kinda screws up my plans but ok.. so last night I had to clean, pack, make cookies, do laundry and clean up a bit more.. then Dan and I exchanged presents.. he got me a wii! I’m kinda excited about that and I’m thinking about getting maybe not the wii fit but something along those lines. And then just a whole bunch of little stuff that I had picked out at the craft sale we were at a month ago. When we plugged in the wii we thought we should play a couple games before we went to bed and Dan got maybe a bit to into it and hit Kato over the head with the remote, totally on accident of course.

And the cookies I made are by far my favorite cookies ever! I’ve seen them alot of foodgawker. I call them:

Chocolate Snowflake Crackles
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp oil
1 square bittersweet chocolate, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
confectioners sugar

In a mixing bowl combine sugar, egg, oil, vanilla and chocolate. Combine baking powder, salt and confectioners sugar in a seperate bowl and gradually add to the creamed mixture. Chill dough for 2 hours and then shape dough into small bite size balls and roll in confectioners sugar. Bake for 9 minutes at 350F.

And thats that… the best cookies ever. I tripled the recipe and made enough for my parents, Dan’s parents and the a small bag for me to enjoy here! YUM!

I also got my car back yesterday! AND I got a letter in the  mail.. apparently I have a package policy on my car that covered it! So I don’t have to pay the $700 deductable and I would have had the option to rent a vehicle and have it paid for! If I would have known that… lol.. I feel so stupid I honestly can’t remember adding that package to my car.. but I’ll go with it. I don’t feel so broke anymore haha!
