At first, Miikka wasn't sure what to make of the cold white stuff - Friday morning, he refused to potty outside, instead peeing on the carpet, but by mid-morning, he had the hang of it. The cold didn't seem to bother him a bit, as long as he kept moving, patrolling his borders and chasing the squirrels who came to pilfer bird seed.
This is the steep path up the side of our hill - we climb this just about every day. This weekend, Miikka had it a lot easier, what with his four-paw drive. We slipped along behind. Too bad he isn't really big enough to pull us up (although he does try).
And so, we enjoyed our time with snow and ice. I got my desk cleaned off and the papers stacked on it filed away. We made beef stew, and I baked bread and snack mix and granola. We watched lots of DVDs. Now, it is back to work and back to normal, thanks to the sun yesterday that cleared most of the roadways, although people are still driving as though they could spin out at any moment. Ah, Southerners...
