the day after christmas

i saw it in the post so i knew it was true . . .  a blizzard.  the city is supposed to get 16 inches and i’ll be stuck out in jersey! missing one of my very favorite things – snow in the city on a sunday.  sunday is the best for snow because it stays whiter longer and it soooo quiet when it snows in the city.

i think jersey has about 5 or 6 inches already & it’s supposed to snow through the night and into tomorrow -but it’s not as bad as it could be . . . i have ivan with me and a brand new exceptionally cool  armadillo that my brother  & sister-in-law  gave me for christmas.  here he is:


thomas’ kids scored high in the most excellent gift department too.  here is my new favorite necklace of all time:


yes, christmas was insanely good in the present department and my new ipad was an awesome gift from my parents.  and, the sound of music which is the #1 best movie of all time is on television, making the whole trapped in nj thing as good as it could be.
