|really? 2 umbrellas, a hat, jacket AND rubber boots? yes.|
Luckily, we stayed warm and dry during Hurricane Sandy. My thoughts are with the people that didn't fare so well.
I spent yesterday in the kitchen making pancakes, chocolate chip cookies, a stir fry for lunch, chicken, homemade guacamole, and baked tortilla chips for dinner. I made the mistake of telling Rob, "Ohhh, I could stay in this room all day." He rolled his eyes because it's so unlike me. It quickly turned into the catch phrase of the day. Every time he saw me in the kitchen he repeated the phrase in an exasperated voice. It's how we'll remember Sandy.
This morning we finally got out of the house to assess the damage in Riverside Park. We gasped at a few trees that were snapped in half, but happy to see most of our part of the park was in tact. Jumping in mud puddles only felt right after being cooped up all day.
My boots from LaCrosse. Review to come!
