Shopping In The Snow


One thing nice about going out Christmas shopping late in a snow storm is that there are only a few other shoppers dumb enough to be out late shopping in the snow, as well.  By the time we headed home about 10:00 pm last night, Corrales Road was snow packed and we had two inches of snow at the house. I ventured out late this afternoon, and once I got out of Corrales, I couldn’t tell it had snowed last night.

Parrots are known for their longevity in captivity, but their average lifespan in the wild is around 6 years. They say it’s because of predators, but I think it’s because they don’t get regular breakfasts of cereal, milk and caffelatte, and other staples like green chile enchiladas, carne adovada, chocolate covered coffee beans, toast, cheese, eggs and filet mignon in the wild.

Puck was up to no good, threatening to knock stuff all over the floor if we didn’t let him out. He often knocks the pencil box on the floor, scattering pencils all over when we don’t let him out. What’s even sillier than Puck knocking the stuff on the floor, is that we simply pick up everything and put it back in the same place so he can knock on the floor again.

    • Wolf. The bird loves filet mignon, as he does most meats. I’m cooking hot Italian sausage for jambalaya — the bird started ringing his bell and asking for sausage. He’s enjoying a bite of sausage as I write.

  1. The snow pic was so good–it almost looked like a painting. Also loved the commentary about your animals–furry and feathered.

  2. Yes… i meant to be looking at parrots, but there is something about that shot of the lonely shopping cart. Something anticipatory and magical. Well done! 😀
