Snow Day!

For the first time in three decades, IU was closed for the entire day. We got a little over 13 inches in a 24 hour period, so the plows were not able to keep up on clearing the roads. It was nice to have a day off, although I can't say I did much. I baked a rum cake and tried to make sugar cookies. (Anyone out there have a good cutout recipe for me because I have tried several to no avail!! The dough always turns out too sticky to roll.) I also watched a movie I have been wanting to see. Seriously, that is it. We were under a snow emergency, so we were not supposed to be on the roads, which was fine with me. I am not excited about taking my new-to-me car out on the snow-packed, slippery road. The picture above is the table on our deck. It is actually pushed up against the house and sits slighly under the overhang on the roof. Yet, it is still covered - amazing!
Below is a short clip of the dogs running in the snow last night. You can see Murphy run off at the end. The neighbor's dog came outside and Murphy made a break to play. He is not supposed to leave the yard, so I had to stop filming for a little scolding.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Did you like it? I loved it in the theater and then Jack bought it for me and it wasn't anywhere near as funny as I'd remembered...

I thought it was cute. Todd watched the last hour and laughed a lot. Shocking! But, we both like the main guy that is also on How I Met Your Mother.

It's crazy how much snow we got! Do you refrigerate your cookie dough before rolling it?

I didn't like the movie so much, but do like the main guy (and LOVE HIMYM)!
