Brrrr, I feel wimpy whining about the snow and cold but it's much colder than we're normally used to, polar vortex aside.  I was skiing the past few days and braved the drive home last night. Actually, it's not the drive but the other drivers that made it treacherous.  It's funny because I see people speeding by me and think they're lunatics but slow drivers are overly cautious--it's a matter of perspective!  I can't get over the number of drivers who go 25 mph on a clear freeway, though!  I'm taking a rest day today from all that skiing/teaching.  I'm not sure what'll happen the rest of the week w/ the snow.  We didn't get that much but enough to stop activities here. What are you all up to? I think a number of us were hit by the storm. Well, except GR. She probably has enough warm weather for the rest of us!

all this talk about food motivated me to make a good dinner last night, I made a moroccan chickpea and lentil soup which is becoming a staple for us, we had some crusty bread, and also a kale/potato gratin (cheeseless but I caved and grated some Parm. regianno on top at the end) and roasted asparagus.  Guess what?  Even my 14 yo ate with gusto though I was priming myself for the typical moaning and groaning.  I was glad because that is a lot of effort for a weekday dinner.  Then we settled down to watch a couple of episodes of West Wing and then I did pilates and knee exercises while dh walked both dogs by himself.  It is just too cold for me.  Negative anything is when I throw in the towel!  LOL, it was -1..I am not usually so fixated upon my weight, but I have decided to get on the scale every monday and thursday for a while to see what is happening there and stay on top of it.  I am one pound down from monday so that is a little something to keep me moving.  I find that when I know I have to weigh myself every week or so, i am more motivated to stay on track.

Add me to the HGTV addict list. I love it and watch it almost daily! One of my favs is Love it or List it and House Hunters International. I am not a big fan of the Hawaii show but that is probably because I have never really had a desire to live there.

I just checked and there are full episodes of HH and HHI online, on the HGTV site,  which is great news because I do miss that show having ditched the satellite.  Cool!
