The northeast of the United States, including many of the Atlantic states, is under watch for a tremendous humongous record-shattering snow storm. I find myself secretly wishing that I could be there - to have the marvelous muffled quiet of the snow, the glare and the cold, the quick sweat of shoveling, and the excuse to bake 8,000 muffins.
This small mountain of snow was found upon the kitchen counter in December of 2009. I have always been entertained by what the young Offspring have done to enjoy the rare snowfall here in this desert land.
NinjaHead resides with a muffin-baking woman known herein as Herself. Herself has a Beloved Husband, with whom she shares three nearly-grown Offspring. When she is not writing Things, Herself nurtures a visceral fondness for small furry creatures. The household menagerie, which has varied in size and composition over the years, presently contains a minuscule middle aged chihuahua, a most mild-mannered senior chihuahua, and a very small hamster who, due to the prominence of his gonads, seems to need trousers for decency.
