It’s snowing here today.

I’ll be heading out to work in just a minute.

I’m crossing my fingers for pizza.

Stay warm.

Head below the fold for a few additional photos and a salad that is worth making any day, not just on a snow day.


More Snow

16 Dec

I was really hoping to post these pictures last week, to show you what the year’s first snow was like when we woke up the next morning.

But have you had this cold/flu thing that’s going around, at least here in New York City?

I was so sick. I lost my voice for a week and spent two solid days at home.  I swear,  I haven’t been that sick in years.

I’m thinking that possibly I had a case of what we’re calling “the oinks” around the office, you know, like swine flu?  Journalists are so funny … or something.

You just have to see what I picked in the garden, from beneath the season’s first snow. Below the jump.

Pork Store

7 Dec

Are there any two more beautiful words in all the world than “Pork Store”?

If there are, I’m unaware of them.  And it was these two magical words that came out of Isaac’s mouth early Saturday afternoon as we were bandying about what to cook for dinner.

I wanted a pork roast, he wanted a roasted chicken, and then somehow in searching the Internet, Isaac stumbled upon Rolf’s and all our wants and needs were forgotten.  All we could think of was sausage.

So we jumped in the car and headed north and as we drove it became snowier and snowier.  But we didn’t care! There were wursts and schinken at the end of the highway!

Sausages and schiken and snow oh my! More after the break.

Snow Birds

For a minute there, I almost believed that winter had forgotten about us up here.

Isaacs Lavendar Today

I was watching the status updates on facebook of my friends down in the city: Playing in the snow in Brooklyn! Cozy inside watching the snow fall.  Snowball fight!

And we were up here, in the great snowy north, with no new snow.  It was mystifying.

And then, as soon as I dared to mention something to Isaac, oh?  What’s that?  A flake.  Followed by another and another.  By the time we got home from the grocery store, it was snowing in earnest.

Time seems to be jumping all over me these days.

Snow, Reflection

I start each day fully intending to finish every last thing on my list. And then, by the time I get home, if I’ve got one thing crossed off that list, I’m satisfied. I’m sure every one of you out there is nodding your heads, thinking to yourself, “Yep, Ann, that sounds like life!”

Snow, Shadows

So I hope you’ll all sympathize with me when I admit two things; that a. I never found the time to get a “real” post together this week, and b. I completely and utterly missed the fact that The Granny Cart is now two years old. How did that happen? I have no idea. Time, she’s gotten the better of me.


It’s kind of embarrassing to follow-up what has to be my favorite post ever (and someone very special feels the same) with such a cop out, but, I just haven’t been able to find the time or intelligence to come up with anything exciting, funny or even resembling English to share with you this week.


So, until I find a moment of stillness in which to cogitate and write, go enjoy this post on My New York chock full of pretty pictures from our recent snowfall.

Sometimes it’s best to let images do the talking.
