Snow Pictures

Here are a couple of snow pictures I took this morning while I was walking to work, unfortunately it has started raining, so it is just a big slushy mess out side right now!

Snow Snow Snow

I know, I post way to much about the weather... but it just looks so pretty outside right now! I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post! It was so nice this morning, walking to work with a light snow fall.

I really do miss being able to see the ocean all the time like we did when we lived in San Diego, but I think I may like the snow even more...

Just doesn't seem right

Procrastinating here - I really should be working on other things, but I just couldn't get this off my mind. So, I guess I'll blog about it. On Monday a colleague of mine did something really terrible. I didn't know him that well, but had been to a group miniature golf outing and dinner, and I see him around campus all the time (I work at a University). Seemed like a very nice guy. This week it seems that he 'lost it' and literally mowed down two students at Washington State University.

He hit two students early Monday morning, in two separate incidents. He hit one person in a side walk, then kept going and hit another person on the sidewalk, kept going and finally pulled over and got out of his car and was ranting and raving, still in his pajamas even. The police even had to taser him to subdue him. The students are alive, but injured.

I can't even begin to tell you how surprised I am about this. From what I knew of him, he was a hard worker who was involved on campus and in the community. Apparently, this may have been his downfall. The judge has ordered him to be evaluated for mental competency, because I guess he's even acting out in court. It's all just so strange.

Here is an AP article about the incident.

It's just one of those things... either, it can happen to anyone... or maybe you just don't know people as well as you think you do?

How cute is this kitten???

It's not my kitten but I just fell in love with the video! So darn cute!

Missing in Action!!!

Once upon a time, I actually wrote things on this blog. Updates about our time here in Idaho, information about our fun trips and excursions... now.... I forget its even here. So sad :-(

It has been a bit of a rough couple of months in the Jones' household. Mike has been sick and coughing for literally months now which makes studying difficult. We've both battle the flu and sinus infections... We are so ready to feel better!!!

But now the holiday's are upon us. Hopefully we will soon be in the Christmas mood. My brother brought over all our Christmas decorations as we store them in my mom's garage. The boxes are piled up in the living room...

We've started to get some holiday cards, with beautiful pictures of friends & family. They are on display on our bookcase at least!! I've even finished my Christmas shopping, now I just need to wrap & ship them all out. I wonder if that's why I'm a little down... I know that we are shipping almost all our gifts, which means we won't see the people who are getting them?

This particular post seems down... and I don't mean for it too. Just saying, I'm working on getting in the holiday spirit and I'm determined to get there - just probably not until next week. ;-) Happy Holidays y'all!!
