Getting fit for Life

It’s been a snowy and long winter even with going to Houston for two weeks in January; where it was cool and rainy (I jinxed myself before I left…telling the girls it would be like a Caribbean vacation of warm weather and palm trees). But one day I even had to use my room key to scrape frost off :o.

Seems like it snows every weekend…these pictures are from last weekend (Feb 9-10) where it snowed and blowed for two days…30-40 cms I think was the final tally.

Hot Tub

Who says hot tubs are all fun?

It’s never to snowy for steak!

As for Houston; I didn’t do too much in Houston (besides work) there was lots of rain and it was kind of cool (like around zero celsius) and I didn’t take any mittens with me; I did some shopping at Katy Mills (love that place) and laundry as I stayed there for two weeks lots of time to kill…on the way back from laundry spotted some hawks on the old Katy service road.

Even with a broken wing he can fly

I had a rental and needed gas; they have barely any full service gas stations (not that I am to prissy to pump my own gas…just had it blow up in my face one time…not fun) took me awhile to find one; he checked the tires and washed the windshield; he probably would have checked the oil too…I think they even had a red carpet at the pumps.  I did find it interesting that they have plenty of drive through restaurants and banks…Go figure :p
