Snow Day - sans snow

Yesterday, we were all abuzz here in Houston about the possibility of 1 to 3 inches of snow falling on our beloved city. The decision was made at school Thursday that we would be closed today. That made everyone happy! (Doesn't take much) I woke up at 6:30 this morning, looked out the window and snow. What a let down.

All we got was a lot of ice. Black ice (not to be confused with the once abundant black gold in these here parts) all over the roads, freeways, driveways, etc. So many accidents reported around town. Some fatal. Its too dangerous out there people. Stay home if you can.

My mom decided to make vegetable soup last night. I was excited about it at first, then found out what was in it - cream style corn, white potatoes, carrots. Normally I'd be okay with that, but since I'm doing low carb, I was a little upset. I kept it to myself though and ate a bowl. It was really good, too. I didn't have any cornbread with it, but I know it was still a lot of carbs.

I'm going to clean house today and get it over with. I usually clean on Saturday, but tomorrow is supposed to be in the low 50's and sunny. Hoorah. Now I just need to stop munching. This cold weather makes me hungry.

Hope you're keeping warm and toasty and safe.


  1. If you like a low carb diet, but like beans too, you definitely should try 4 Hour Body. This morning for breakfast I had scrambled eggs with a side of black beans and some salsa. It was really delicious, and really helps with a sustained energy level.

    Be careful on that ice and keep warm!

  2. Well that's a first, disappointed over no snow. But it is pretty, isn't it? The ice - I don't like. Treacherous. Well, at least you got the day off.

  3. Hi can disregard the section of the 4HB book about sex (I have), I'm not sure why he felt the need to add that into the mix. It seems kind of stupid.

    But, you don't need to only have 10 lbs to lose. As I said, my hub needs to lose 100 lbs, and he's so far lost about 4 lbs in a week. Go ahead, try it. It only costs about $13 at Amazon.

  4. Love the graphic image! I'm mourning the loss of my MIL and so I think enjoying your mom's soup is the way to go. Life's short. No one ever gained weight eating soup.

  5. I was a little disappointed with the snow no show. I hate the cold but if it's going to be cold at least let it be fun, right?
    My car was covered in a layer of ice. Crazy stuff. And yes, I had to go out on the roads but never encountered road ice.

    Fortunately it's warmer now. Enjoy the sunshine and warmer days. :) Are you ready for spring?!
