I am stuck finishing projects that are due tomorrow. Talk about miles to go before I sleep...bah. I guess you have to pull an all-nighter at least once a term, right? Haven't been out to the barn since Sunday, probably won't go out till Thursday.

Crazy cold weather here in the PNW. All schools in the district had a snow day today - not the UO, of course, because they haven't actually closed due to weather since some ridiculously long time ago, I think 1954. Apparently my dog was outside running around our backyard like an idiot at about 3 AM playing in the snow. Silly kid. Every once in awhile today he'd go outside, run around for awhile, and then come back inside all excited and proud of himself. The cat, who is much smarter, spent almost the entire day inside curled up on my lap or on whatever convenient soft surface I stuck him on when I needed to get up.

My barn owner put this picture up today on Facebook:

I know. I know. It's like half an inch of snow. It's just that we don't really get snow here, so even an inch or two and a little ice and basically the whole city shuts down. There was more in town, though, and roads are supposed to be pretty icy tomorrow because tonight is going to get very cold.

But. Look at McKinna! She is so cute. Look at those fuzzy little ears all pricked forward and excited to go outside. And the puppy running alongside. Can't wait to go out and ride later this week.

Sigh. Back to the grind. Project is due in almost exactly 12 hours.

Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving weekend!

Is that a cute little Rottie bum in the picture?

Get back to work and have a great Thanksgiving!

We only have an inch or two of snow, but it's solid ice underneath. I'm not even sure I want to risk going to the barn and making my poor horse walk on ice (though I'm sure she'd prefer that to staying in her stall/run).

Happy studying! You'll graduate soon enough.

Whew. It all got finished (barely). Didn't have time to proofread the big creative writing assignment, so hopefully my poor tired brain didn't make any crazy mistakes ;)

He's actually an Australian Shepherd. Fuzzy little thing, going to turn out pretty big - he's already as tall as his mama and he's still just a puppy. Sweetest boy ever.

I just talked to our barn owner and apparently the horses enjoyed galloping around the snowy pastures. I guess they like to play in snow too!
