I know I haven’t been here for a while, so this #7 is probably more like n√ļmero uno for me this year, but I saw a picture of a VW beetle and if you know anything about me you know I love VW bugs. and if you know anything else about me, you know I’m a nice person ūüėČ so ¬†I wanted to share.

Fast forward to Which Way…

So we heard it was going to snow today. ¬†But do we stay home? Of course not. ¬†We HAD to go to Trader Joe’s because I HAD to have their coconut Greek yogurt. ¬†Trader’s is about 25 minutes away so we detoured for breakfast and then off we went.

True to form, it snowed.  Traffic was stupid.  But I had my eye on the price.  Coconut Greek YOGURT!

The snow ¬†didn’t really look like a big deal.


After all, TJ’s had what I needed.

This is a really fun place to shop. ¬†You get free coffee and can taste samples of yummy food, they’ve got a great selection of cards for A DOLLAR and the cashier’s wear Hawaiian shirts – ALL YEAR ROUND!) ¬†The walls are decorated with fun, colorful pictures and it’s just a very cheerful shopping experience.. ¬†(Here’s where the VW comes in.)

This is the pic that makes me smile.

One if by land…


(But if you’re into canoes…)

And two if by sea (or river, or lake, or…)


So I grab up some coconut yogurt ( and mangoes and blackberries, sliced italian bread and chocolate covered raisins – all the essentials) then home again home again, jigging jig.


Traffic seems to have died down.  I suppose yogurt is not a priority with some folks.

Apparently we are in the grips of a polar vortex.¬† It doesn’t take a genius or a meteorologist to know polar vortex equals COLD.¬† My car is telling me this!

“C” is for COLD!¬† Which is just what it is around here.

The icicles hanging precariously from our gutters are another indication.


As COLD as it was, my son broke out the shovel and my husband, the snow blower.  Me?  I thought supervising Рfrom inside a warm, cozy house Рwas the smart thing to do.

Cover up, people and stay warm.¬† I hear it’s not over yet.

Ailsa, at wheresmybackpack, has presented us with a new challenge this week.¬† In celebration of peace, she has chosen to bring our attention to the UN’s International Day of Peace – Friday, September 21, 2012 – marking the 30th anniversary.¬† One of the ways to show support is by wearing white today – which I did – thank you, Ailsa.¬† For more information about Peace Day and to view other interpretations of white, please take a minute to visit Ailsa‘s site by clicking here.

Very white – but not just yet…
