must be crazy

So yesterday my plan was to go do some shopping. I thought that buying a few new crafty toys would help jolt me into making something. I did a few things around the house until it was late enough that the stores would be open. (I got up a little early on my day off)
About 15 minutes before I was ready to leave I look out the window and see this


Want a closer look at what it's really doing?
Yep, that's right. It's snowing like crazy.
Did it stop me? No way. I still went out. A girl could suffer from serious cabin fever if she stayed in every time it snowed like that around here.
So what did Duke think of all this?

He told me to take it slow and don't forget to bring him a special treat.

Woof! Woof! That's great Ann ... but at the same time crazy. So what did you get? Did you really bring something for Duke. Hope it stops snowing ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

I can't believe you went out in that. You are the brave one and nice to know Duke looks out for you. Of course, I would brave the snow just to bring Duke a treat :D

Sandee said...

I wouldn't have went out in that. Oh wait. I wouldn't live in snow country. Just saying. At least Duke has a level head and he has his priorities straight too.

Have a terrific day. My very best to wise Duke. :)

Sharkbytes (TM) said...

Oh you tease! Duke is saying, "GO get some good stuff so we can show people!"

Can't wait to see what you got.

BeadedTail said...

I would have stayed home with Duke! Glad you made it home safe and hope you found the goodies (and treats) you went after.

livintheblues said...

I see we are bearing up under similar weather....

marie said...

Atta boy Duke! You know where your priorities are.

The snow looks beautiful ~ I know it can be a hassle but I sure wish we'd get a little.

Kloggers/Polly said...

Oh Ann - I can't believe you decided to venture out in that. Almost reminds me of that very old film 'The Trap' (Oliver Reed and Rita Tushingham) out in the wilds with all of that snow.
I don't think I would have been tempted out .... hibernation comes into mind!!

Duke ever the gentleman is assured of his seat in the House of Lords with all of that commonsense.

Grace said...

It snowed up your way Saturday? Yikes...me, I haven't left the house in over 2 weeks, but then I don;t have any where to go! Hope you found some new nifty crafty toys!

Sheri said...

I hear you! Just keep the faith that Spring will indeed be here before you know it. And I hope you brought back something for Duke.

Ginny said...

You went out anyway? How did it go? The driving would have scared me to death, you must have a four wheel drive. You are braver than me! It doesn't look like your roads were treated or plowed! I hope you got lots of good things to make the trip worth it. Yikes, don't let Duke out, with all that white he'd never be found in all that snow!

Anny said...

Ohhhhhhhhhh boy! You sure am a very tough lady. How do you drive in that weather. Even Duke looks worried there.. hehehe.. take care now Ann and enjoy the beauty of the white :)

Duni said...

Awww...Duke's face upclose looks so cute :)
Sorry about the snow...Glad you made it there and back safely!

FishHawk said...

Yep, you are, and methinks you have been that way for a while.

Catherine said...

Hmmm.... those photos look familiar ~ oh yeah ~ because it looks the same here! Nope, it wouldn't stop me from shopping either. :)

And how could you not bring that adorable little face a treat!!!

xo Catherine

Audrey said...

We had some snow yesterday too, but it wasn't snowing that hard. Will have to do some clearing again :(
Well - it is winter. I guess if we didn't want snow - we'd move south?

Marg said...

Duke, you got it all straight, the priority is the treats for you. Hope Mom made it home all right. That is a lot of snow. Take care and have a fun week.

Russ aka Grampy said...

We have been pretty busy with the snow around here. I have a post up today. I dig out five cars over here and it took me until Friday to finish the last one. Another Nor Eastern coming in for this coming weekend.
Duke is looking good as usual. Hope you got some goodies when you went out.
Have a good week.

Ann said...

audrey I don't want the snow so why am I not moving south...lol

marg yep made it home safe and sound and played with my new toys while Duke played with his new treat

russ oh my 5 cars? that's a lot of digging. You must have one aching back after all that digging

Donna said...

I think that was Duke's face that said "you are nuts for going out there!"

Sandra said...

kudos for being a brave soul and braving that snow... i would NOT have gone, i dont even go shopping in rain. if it is raining I stay home. good thing i don't live in Seattle or the UK. i think sweetie Duke was saying Are you kidding me? stay home mommy

VanillaSeven said...

I never seen the snow so thick, so beautiful! Maybe for you its no longer special and for me it is.

Donna said...

That's some SERIOUS cabin fever to go out in That!!!
Just don't think I could Ever "do" snow! What did you bring The Duke???Lol
hughugs

Bossy Betty said...

Duke has the right idea!

Did you get the special treat? Did ya? Did ya?

gayle said...

Your snow is beautiful! There is No way I would drive in it. I don't get cabin fever!

Out on the prairie said...

When the goings get tough, the tough go shopping is my motto.

Lin said...

Hahahaha! I love how Duke has his priorities straight!

Ann said...

donna either that or maybe it was "what do you mean you're leaving me home alone"...lol

sandra I don't like driving in it but sometimes when we've had a lot of snow I just need to get out before cabin fever sets in

vanilla seven it hasn't been special in a very long time...lol

donna yep, it was cabin fever alright. Duke got some chewies

bossy betty but of course he does :)

gayle I get cabin fever way too easy.

out on the prairie excellent motto, I think it's one that I follow quite often

Lin he knows that a little retail therapy for mom benefits him as well

Jille said...

The snow always looks so beautiful and I love it! Well, so what do you buy then ;0)

Jille x

Miawa said...

Very wise dog you have there, I'm sure he wasn't thinking of the treat at all - just go get it! and be careful mommy.

Country Mouse Studio said...

B Boys Mom said...

The good thing about shopping in a snow storm is the stores are not very busy. I hope Duke ended up with a nice treat.

allotments4you said...

Oh Duke...I guess you were a lot saner than Mum...but to be fair you are also a lot shorter..lol

Ann said...

jille it is beautiful when you don't have to go out in it

Miawa yep, that's my Duke :)

country mouse studio I'm so ready for some spring color

tahtimbo I think I'm too wimpy for a snowmobile, you have to be all bundled up and it's still so cold...lol

texas ranch for sale
