Movie/Food/Book Junkies

Hi friends!

No work for the second day in a row (not counting the weekend). Atlanta (and the surrounding metro areas) are piled "high" with snow, so much so that the roads turn to slush and the re-freeze overnight. There hasn't been much a reprieve from the cold weather, not counting the great fun we had sledding in Freedom Park today! I slid down the hill with Pierce and then, when I got brave and decided to go head first, face-planted in the snow. Our adventure became more fun when we let Bella off her leash so she could play and run a bit, but then she thought we were playing when we called her back. She kept hunkering down with her booty in the air and, when we'd get close enough to clasp her leash, she'd take off running and bounding down the hill. Hardy har har, Bella! It was only cute for the first five seconds. After a few minutes she finally understood that Pierce's serious voice was, in fact, serious, and we got her back on the leash. Success!

Since Friday evening we've watched bunches of movies, and I've been reading a bit of A Soft Place to Land. Here's what we've watched so far:

Ramona and Beezus
Eclipse (once by myself...I fell asleep...and then hubby and I watched it together)
Knight and Day
It's Complicated
The Shawshank Redemption

...along with many SNL Digital Shorts, such as "Lazy Sunday" (which fits perfectly not only with our cabin fever, but also with our love of The Chronic(what?!)cles of Narnia), "I Just Had Sex", and the always-good-for-a-laugh "I'm On a Boat"....ah, snow days...

In just a little while we're going to watch Easy A ( which I saw in theaters, but couldn't hear half of it because of a lovely, sweet group of girls who paid ten dollars to TALK ALL THE WAY THROUGH IT! I'm trying to use Jesus words here). I think Pierce is only watching it with me because Emma Stone is hot. I'm not arguing...

We've also managed to consume inordinate amounts of chocolate, soda, pasta, and (surprisingly) water. I have an excuse to get to the gym! But playing outside has been good for the cardio, no lie, so I'm not too worried about it. We did get out of the house for a bit to go to Deckard's and eat the best onion rings I've ever hard...that was another adventure, which I do not wish to repeat (the driving, not the eating) until the roads are completely clear.

I heard that 49 of the 50 states are currently experiencing snow in some way...darn you, Hawaii.

I have much more important things to discuss at a later date concerning our small group, our worship, our church, and our growing relationship with Christ, but I want to write about that when I will not be interrupted. For now let me say that I am in awe of what He is doing in this season of our lives.
