What a cold and rainy day. Where on earth is the sun hid away?



So much to say, so little time. My job has been hellishly busy but actually pretty interesting as we bring aboard the different countries. I'm getting my hair highlighted today so I need to finish about 6 days worth of work in the next 4 hours. Here is a photo recap of my week

SNOW!
It snowed last Sunday. It was a steady beautiful snow that's all gone now. It was sorta winter's last hurrah (she says tentatively) as the temp is going to be near 60 tomorrow. There's apparently this big fire ball in the sky called the sun and today it's decided to grace us with it's presence after many months away.


1st movie
Took the girl to see her first movie; Doogal. I got 2 words to describe this flick-God Awful! It had big name stars but it was just plain dumb. The Girl gave me a look like "The Boy's first movie was Shrek 2 and I get THIS crap?" D took her out to the lobby for the last 15 minutes while the Boy and I watched the end. SIR Ian Mckellen and DAME Judi Dench were prominently featured and if I were Buckingham Palace I would revoke their titles just for being associated with it.


Went to Ikea and besides some stuff to redo the Girl's room I bought a bunch of plants.

Plant from Ikea
I haven't had time to repot this one so it's sitting in my dining room.

I helped my sister redo her condo. It's a nice place for 2 people considering she and R are hardly ever home. We bought a new rug and some pictures and hung her mirror and some photos. I told her that she doesn't have any kids yet so there's no excuse for the mess and clutter.

Also, there wasn't too much we could do with the furniture placement because they have this huge media cabinet holding their big-ass TV.

After pictures:

After View from the kitchen

After New shelves with wedding pictures

Finally, I had a request to post more pictures of Chutney.

IMG_3241 Just to give you a little perspective on how big he's gotten he can reach the kitchen counter with little effort.

The picture isn't really clear but sometimes Chutney thinks he's in a rodeo. He jumps up on his hind legs as if he were riding off into the sunset. In the background you can see the kid's tent which Chutney used as a doghouse for a few days.

Every once in a while when he's not spasing out or eating socks Chutney will come and lay in my office while I work.

These pictures make him look deceivingly innocent.

That's all folks. I'm in California next week so I'll post if I can. Have a great weekend!

Jeezuz yuor dog is MASSAIVE. He's very... gangly, isn't he?

The only piece of furniture I own is a bed, and I didn't even buy that. -sigh-

You have hardwood floors! (or what looks like em anyway). I love those. My dog lives indoors too though considering his tiny size, it's quite amazing he lords it over us so completely. Your sister's place looks nice (jealous glare).

Actually when did Chutney become so slim? The last time I saw his pic in your car Chutney looked chubby...

- IKEA: uniforming the world
- chutney might be a rogue, but he's adorable!
- that tent is exactly, like my nephew's in Delhi! considering he was given it by an aunt from the US, I won't be surprised if it is the same make

Hey Chutney Chutney Chutney!
Hey boooyyyy!!
He's SOOO CUUTTEE!!

Don't worry about the gangly-ness. All puppies are like that if they're not overfed. My Sunshine is about Chutney's size too!

And babe, you could've been an interior decorator or something. *dreams of my own pad... with a nice big lawn for Sunshine to run in.*

OMG PUPPY wheeeeeeeee!!!!

God I love dogs with big floppy ears. I wish I could have one.

Dammit.

Btw your photo links don't work when we click on them. I get a message from flickr that says "You don't have permission to view these photos."

Sigh.
