Not a Fan!

I'm not a fan of the snow! I've blamed my last few years in NYC on this hatred. I mean snow there becomes dark and dirty in just moments and makes walking around just near impossible.

But I thought maybe I would it enjoy it again at home...ah think again.

Apart from meeting a friend for lunch in downtown Philadelphia I was pretty much stuck inside for the night.

We decided to eat at Marathon Grill, where I had a trio of sides. Beets with goat cheese, brussels sprouts, and wheat berries. Everything was great and perfectly cooked!!

I ate at the restaurant a few years ago for brunch but didn't remember the restaurant having so many healthy choices. We randomly chose this establishment since we didn't want to wander too far from the train. The snow was beginning to fall pretty fast and it was windy which made it hard to walk and see.

By the time I made it back to my grandmother's neck of the woods, it was a mess outside!

I went to bed preparing to shovel the next morning. I haven't had to shovel in years and I was kinda making out the experience to be romantic.

Well once I opened the door on Monday morning I realized it was not going to be fun...and over an hour later, yeah, not fun. I never want to see snow again! I'm really hoping this year's winter is not a repeat of last year's, or I might just cry. Spring, please come quick!

Thankfully my mom has 4 wheel drive and was able to pick me up after I dug my grandmother out. And after staying in the house for the most part of the day yesterday we're going on a little road trip for my sister's birthday, should be fun!

I also need to do some strength training today...maybe I'll make use of Exercise TV on demand? Hoping the snow will clear enough by tomorrow so I can go for a little run.

Catch ya later,


  1. I cannot imagine snow like that. An inch or two is enough for me. I have never had wheat berries, but they look delicious!

  2. oh boy...i thought we got a lot of snow :) yes to exercise tv! my parents have it, too (i don't at school) and i love it!!!
