Mikey Loves The Snow

…and sunsets.

It’s been excessively cold this winter.  The snow has been pretty steady too.  Mikey loves the snow and the cold.  Being the “undead” has its perks. You never get cold, lol.

The sunset was really pretty.  The pictures do not do it justice.  It made a band of pink throughout the sky once the sun set.  So very pretty!

Mikey is also excited that the Eagles are playing on Sunday.  We are all hoping they make it to the Super Bowl.  Bjorn…he’s excited about the Olympics and watching some Curling, Go Norway!

Let It Snow…But Just a Little

Winter Storm Inga made its way through our part of town today.

She was a nice Swedish girl and didn’t over stay her welcome.  We got about 1″ of snow and it’s fairly warm (34 degrees) so it wasn’t a mess out there.  I’m pretty sure we won’t even get to sled in what Inga left behind.  Oh well…maybe the next one, lol.  Bjorn out!

No Pants News

So I’m just hanging out having a beer and smoking my cigars and wham…accidental car fire.

That guy over there yelled at me to put some pants on.  Seriously?

Dude there is an emergency happening right now.  I’m just here to report it.

You don’t need pants to report the news.  Just interest in it.  Also, I’m glad there is a bar next door.  Have a good weekend you filthy animals!

Until the Cows Come Home

Hey looks…the cows are home.

The Roomie likes to spend her lunch hour watching the cows.  We don’t get it.

 

We all just smile for the pictures, lol.

Except Heat Miser…he’s still mad it’s getting colder again, lol.

Peak leaf weekend was last weekend.  Now most of the trees are bare.  There is still a little color here and there but for the most part we are banking into Winter soon.

We all love going into the forest this time of year though.  Well, everyone but Heat Miser.  He’s very cranky.

Seeing The Shrine

Saturdays in Autumn are for Craft Fairing.  This past Saturday was the mother lode of CF days.  We had multiples and one of those was at St. Katharine Drexel Shrine.  I had never been to the Shrine and neither had the Roomie so we thought this was a win/win.  The Campus is closing in January and the body of St. Katharine is being moved to somewhere in Philadelphia from the Bensalem, PA campus.  St. Katharine lived here for many years before her death and it was the Mother House for her order.

The Chapel is magnificent.  It reminded me a lot of the churches in Britain.  It kind of made me feel like I was back home again.

St. Katharine was an amazing woman who grew up wealthy and gave it all up to take care of her fellow human beings.  Her focus was to enable the Native American and African-American women and children a chance at a better life through education and endowment.  She founded colleges and schools and helped to provide medical help when needed to the poorest among us.  She used the money left to her by her parents ($15 million) to fuel her endeavors.

It made me sad that this beautiful campus has been sold.  Luckily her vision is still being upheld by her Order.  We were just glad we got to see all of this and to kneel and pray to her before she is moved.  Well the Roomie did that while I took selfies in the chapel.

I personally like the Park CF’s.  I get to play in the forest!!
