After 6 months of discussion this blog of ours has finally come to fruition. And it is all thanks to the ice and snow storm we had this week – Taylor has been at home for 5 consecutive days since school has been closed and I have worked from home all days but one. The Super Bowl is tomorrow and Jerry Jones has commandeered all the snow plows for himself. In short, we have run out of things to do in our apartment so we are finally creating this blog.
Our apartment faces a courtyard that looked quite beautiful yesterday morning right after the snowfall.
Unfortunately this pristine snow was marred by all the people in our apartment complex including:
1. French students that started out with a playful snowball fight and ended with a petite French girl slapping a French boy and calling him “un enfant” after he smashed an epic snowball in her face.
2. Why is it that when you want a dog it seems like everyone else has one? Every single resident in our building brought their dog out to romp in the snow and take pictures. There are 6 courtyards in our apartment but they all seem to want to come into ours to rub it in our faces. Especially that Great Dane.
3. But the best of all was this:
This man must really love this woman. Yes he is wearing a moose hat. And yes that is a hairless cat he is holding (who is wearing a sweater that you unfortunately can’t see at this angle). The cat was absolutely livid for numerous reasons probably including the eager dog you can see in the top right corner of the picture. I unfortunately did not get a picture of when the woman was holding the cat and LAYING DOWN IN THE SNOW. A ground floor apartment has truly offered us views we could never have dreamed of.
God Bless Texas.
