Good morning my fellow Bloggers! Remember that snow that I bragged about missing last week? Well, it arrived in a big way here in the DC-Baltimore area on Wednesday night -- all 9 inches or so (and with drifting there was way more to shovel). And to add to the fun, I was without power for 15 hours. So besides shoveling there wasn't a lot to do except try and stay warm. Luckily, reading is the perfect activity when one is huddled under the covers trying to retain heat (also snuggling a nice big Labrador Retriever helps too). This is how I was able to consume a book in a single day which is unusual for me.
Apart from my snow adventures, the week passed rather uneventfully save for enjoying a fabulous meal at the Melting Pot and attending the annual World of Pets Expo. Dinner at the Melting Pot, a fondue chain, is always a highlight for me, but as it is a bit pricey I only go on special occasions. This week the occasion was Valentine's Day (yes I know only about three weeks early, but given that it was participating in the local Restaurant Week that was close enough). If you've never been and have a Melting Pot in the area, I highly recommend it. You won't be sorry, but you will need plenty of credit left on your plastic. As for the World of Pets Expo this is an annual outing that my dogs enjoy and a great place to see what is new in the pet world. I wound up ordering two adorable dog coats that I can't wait for my girls to model when they are finished.
I'm a reader/commuter in the DC Metro Area. My daily commute to work provides me with ample time to do what I love most: read! Whether its chick lit, literature, memoirs or other non fiction you can always find me with a book.
