"Snowflakes don't listen to radio. Snowflakes don't watch television."

It snowed all day yesterday. I was pretty excited about it. Schools had been preemptively closed, friends were running to the store on Tuesday to stock up on goods because they were sure they’d be snowed in for a week, and I was looking forward to being warm and toasty while the flakes flew outside. Sadly, our apartment isn’t that warm and it didn’t snow as much as I hoped. But on the plus side, several of Micah’s co-workers worked from home to avoid the storm, so his boss bought lunch for those who braved the 3 inches to come in. (Free lunch! Hooray!) And I popped popcorn and watched Ratatouille with Simon for the 786th time. (Favorite quote: “You’re the one gettin’ fancy with the spices!” Micah and I can’t cook together without one of us saying it.)

I also used some of the time to learn to use Manual mode on my camera. Here are a few photos (which I subsequently tinkered with in Photoshop — is that cheating?) from the endeavor.

(I think the world would be a better place if everyone wore red long-johns, don’t you?)

  1. Yay for pictures! You should let me know what you learn about the manual mode-although Micah can attest that I'm not very good at remembering.

  2. Very nice pictures, good job! And good choice in movies, that's one of my favorites. Our favorite quote is, "I don't like food, I love it. And if I don't love it, I don't swallow it!" Sheer brilliance. :0)

  3. I am totally impressed with your talent. I keep telling myself to take our camera out and just practice, but I also keep telling myself that I don't have anything to shoot! Love those long-johns!

  4. So fun! Great pics! I laughed out loud at the vision of you and Simon goin' to town in the kitchen quoting Ratatouille! I'm making it my personal mission to pop popcorn and watch that movie from beginning to end today (it's a sick day). I've heard the thing playing in the car, I've seen snippets here and there, but never the whole thing. I'm really glad we bought it, but it would be nice if I actually got to watch it.
