Yep, I’ve been pretty quiet lately – not by choice, but by season. See, my real-life job is weather-influenced…as in snow-plowing. Mother Nature has not been kind to us this year (I’ve used a few choice names for her…), and particularly on the weekends, leaving me little time to do much of anything besides wait for the phone call to come into work – and little things around the house while I’m waiting (like cleaning the basement…little things, y’know?).
That’s not to say I’ve been completely quiet:
- Christmas is my favorite holiday (in spite of the snow), and I was able to enjoy it a bit longer since I had my decorating done by the end of November.
- I was able to do some baking (strategically between snowflakes, of course): cinnamon rolls (the post-plowing breakfast of champions!), mini pigs-in-a-blanket to keep my dad happy, and this easier-than-it-looks pane bianco (already planning to make this again).
- I was given the amazing opportunity to live out a dream: I will spend the 2018 season as the stock car photographer at Lancaster National Speedway. Having grown up at the track and practiced photography in the stands for many years, this is an absolute #dreamgig.
- I’ve been dreaming that this winter will end soon…
(Is it spring yet??)
