Blizzard

Chapter 25: "My heart is beeping!"

The big news this week is probably the giant blizzard! For some time we had no snow at all and I was gloating. A lot. Thinking we were maybe getting into springtime... Silly me. I should have known better that's for sure. Steven warned me about the snow we were expecting, but as I left for work  there was no snow falling, no snow at all. I thought maybe the weather man had been wrong! I work in sort of a cave at work, because everything I do is so colour and light sensitive we work in a very dark room with no windows at all, I had no idea it was snowing, and snowing HARD. literally, the snow was going sideways. actually horizontal. Steven wisely chose to come home around 2 pm because He was starting to think he might not be able to get home if he waited much longer - the visibility was so bad. By the time I left work, we had almost a foot of snow, and the next day when it finally stopped snowing, we were left with probably more than 2 feet of perfect, fluffy, snow. I felt like we were living in a ski village on a ski hill somewhere! The cars parked on the road were completely buried in snow, like giant street marshmallows haha. Because of this blusteriest of weather, we felt like it called for a hearty soup. It was so perfect!

So Steven posted about my terrible disappointing no good haircut last week. Well this week I faced my fears and went back, to show the owner the terrible haircut. It was so traumatic and stressful going back that Steven decided I needed a pick me up. so... Kittens! We visited Le Café Chat L'heureux. Its pretty much heaven!! We got soup and cheesecake to share, and played with the three kittens and 8 cats who live in the cafe. We were pretty much in heaven!

Friday night, we started our search for the best fried chicken in Montreal. The place we went to was pretty hole in the wall greasy spoon eating, but the food was really good. Just exactly what we were hoping for in our chicken and fries. On our way back to Amber and Devin's after dinner, we stopped at McDonald's for some St. Patty's day treats! Everyone kept pointing at our McFlurries cups and wishing us a happy St. Patrick's day after that, we aren't sure why McFlurries have that effect on people haha. Is it a traditional St. Patrick's day treat now or something?? To really get in the St. Patrick's day mood, we watched some Irish dancing (yay!) and then a movie called "Brooklyn" about immigrants from Ireland to Brooklyn. All in all a festive day we think! I guess the fried chicken might not have been the most festive meal, but... no regrets here!

I was working all day Saturday, but Steven had lots to do! He spent the morning at a friends house, and did a bunch of chores at home. When I finally got home at about 7 pm, he was really wanting to make pizza. He found a pizza dough recipe, and started throwing it all together really confidently while I was cleaning up before our friends came over for a games night. I walked into the kitchen to see him kneading the dough, and took one look at it and said "Hmm. That might be looking a little dry huh?" He was like "I don't know.. Is it not supposed to look like this?" So long story short, Steven spent the next 45 minutes trying to kneed more water back into this rock of dough. Finally it was ready and we put it aside to rise. The pizza turned out great somehow! We made yummy pizza and played a bunch of games with some friends. All in all a really nice evening! We Definitely want to do more of those, and all this snow makes it hard to do anything outside... so we don't have a lot of choice in the matter anyways haha!

Anyways, This week flew by, and now that the show I'm working on is just about finished, time seems to be speeding up.

love, Heather

ps. One of our friends kids said the cutest thing today. He was running, and felt out of breath afterwards and said "My heart is beeping!" and when his mom said hers was too, he said "Oh good! That means you're letting someone in." Cutest. Thing. Ever.
