when all else fails ...

When you can't take winter any more I highly recommend Disney -
just be prepared for the never ending "nationals" competition for cheerleaders.
We have yet to find a time of year when there are not hordes of cheerleaders at Disney.  They travel in swarms and speak in cheerleaderese 
 where their pitch raises at the end of each sentence.

I know it would appear that we were just at Disney, and we sorta-kinda-were.  Regardless, I always find new and different experiences:

Firsts trip where all pictures were taken with a cell phone; 
I actually had a hooded rain coat when needed; 
 Northface rather than Dri-Fit;
and so many new food explorations.

Skipper's Canteen /Magic Kingdom 
- chicken on rice.  
and skipper's beefy mac & cheese.

Boat House - Disney Springs
- chocolate ice-cream encased in roasted marshmallow.
"serves 4" - so true, if they meant 4 tables.  So much. 
(ps, the firecracker shrimp - so OMG good I didn't think to take a picture)

California Grill - Contemporary Hotel
- sugar-free coffee cheesecake.
Exactly the right amount sweet to finish an amazing meal.
If you are ever at Disney World and wanting sushi - I can not recommend California Grill enough. 
(and I've been to Japan - seriously, these people know their stuff).

song*ography | valley winter song ...

And it's been falling all day long 
What else is new 
What could I do 
I wrote a valley winter song 
To play for you

February | ...

and just like that, January is in the books.

the good, the random, the fun of it went in a flash;
from Rose Parade, 
California dreaming,
uncorking and Creating,
to Winter Storm Jonas.

Lets hope that with an extra day in February it won't zoom by quite so fast.

song*ography | brights lights bigger city ...

I been livin' for the weekend, but no, not anymore 
'Cuz here comes that familiar feeling that friday's famous for 
Yeah, i'm lookin' for some action and it's out there somewhere 
You can feel the electricity all in the evenin' air 
And it may just be more of the same 

But sometimes 
you wanna go where everyone knows your name 
So i guess 
i'll have to wait 
and see 
But i'm just gonna 
let something brand new happen to me 
And it's alright, 
Bright lights 
in the big city 
It belongs to us tonight

Good.brr.Random.brr.FUN | brr ...

the GOOD ...

the good thing about this whole Jonas bro-storm was that it was light and fluffy.
And we (fingers crossed until that last flake melts) maintained our electricity.
I can handle being snowed in provided I have electricity.

the RANDOM...

photo perspectives when committed to taking pictures from inside 
during a winter storm 
can be random (and fun). 

[the wall of snow that greeted me when I opened the garage door at one point 
- just begged for a floor shot] 

 the FUN ...

it was fun to see the Cardinal family. 
I took a few pictures (from inside) then yelled for them to fly way because it was just a matter of time until the herd of cats realized 
fresh chow.
