Brrr, It's Cold Outside

The weather man said it would happen and it did.  SNOW in Greenville, SC.  At first I was a skeptic and didn’t believe it would come to fruition.  But when I woke up this morning, there was not just a dusting or the icky sleet and rain we are used to, this was fun powdery snow and about 7-9 inches to boot.   So what do you do when you are home from work and it’s snowing outside?  You go sledding!!  I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I went sledding.  We suited up and went to a nearby golf course (Along with half of Simpsonville) and hit the hills.  What a rush to get in the sled and fly down a hill.  I will say that it took me a lot longer to get back up the hill than it did to go down.  So much for hill repeats this week during my runs.   After sledding we headed over to the neighbors (A&K and G6) to have Shrimp & Grits and play some board games.  A new favorite of mine is now “Sequence".  We had a blast playing games.  Last winter we spent many friday nights with A&K playing board games.  So I'm always happy to find new games to put in the rotation.
Our Snow Covered House

Me and Lark

Sledding with one of my best girls...Amy

Can we say Snow Plow.....

Today was the perfect way to end Lark’s Birthday Weekend.  His birthday was yesterday.  We spent Saturday night in Charlotte and had a fabulous dinner with friends and family at "Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar".  I had “Burgushi”.  It’s a fusion of a burger and sushi.  Very Tasty!  Then again, anything with pimento cheese is tasty to me!  Lark had eel and more eel.  Delicious!!!    If you ever in Charlotte, NC, I highly recommend checking out
 After returning home, I made Lark’s favorite “Cherry Chip Cake with Cherry Icing”.  This year I actually made cupcakes so we wouldn’t be as tempted to eat a whole cake.  If only the office would open sometime this week so I can get the leftovers out of the house!!!

It looks as if tomorrow will be another “Snow Day”.  I think I will take this time to finish packing away the Christmas Decorations and maybe even clean out my closet. (Yes, I said packing away...all decorations have been taken down)  I just need to go to the attic.   It would be nice to get in a run somewhere but I don’t see myself getting on the roads while there is snow and ice still on the ground.  I’m trying to remain injury free…. I do have a half marathon coming up in less than 39 days. 
If you are out of school, out of work and have some snow around, embrace your inner child and go sledding.  It does a body good....oh wait, did i just find another bruise??
Happy Monday!
