Zoey is the most dedicated snow watcher in our house, but this storm is wearing her out. This is Zoey's favorite sleeping position when she is super tired and we refer to it as "the face plant". She starts out laying down with her head up and looking around. Then ever so slowly, it seems as if her nose gets heavier and heavier until it has landed directly in front of her with her forehead mashed on the ground. The whole process is very cute to watch but I think the still picture still captures how tiring it can be to be a kitten sometimes.
So what snow has she been watching so diligently?
Here it is: day 11 of snow in the rainy city and we are officially out of produce in Zoey's kitchen which has made cooking a little less exciting. Zoey's dad is planning a trip to the grocery store later today to pick up some essentials (KALE) and I am hoping that works out because I am getting a little tired of pasta and cous cous. Granted, we have enough grains and beans to last about a month but I am craving fresh produce like crazy.
The funny thing is that when we heard a storm was coming 12 days ago, the only "essential items" I thought to pick up at the store were items for holiday baking. In my defense the storm was only supposed to last 2 days and yet, it continues on. So the only "green" I have eaten in the past 24 hours are these cookies:
By Montana standards, I might consider this a normal winter day, but here in Oregon there is no hope of getting out until it melts.
