In Kansas and in much of the Midwest, a blizzard has come through, swept through the streets and houses, living it in a Winter Wonderland. It looks something like this:
This photo was taken two Christmas's ago at my aunt and uncle's house when we got a massive blizzard. It's days like this that I know I'm living in another country. I went for a walk this morning in 80-degree weather wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Here's a view from my side of the country:
Sunny and actually hot. I still can't believe I live here.
Ducks are a pretty common sight in our neighborhood, and I spotted this little guy on my walk. Due to my last encounter with a duck who looked a little too happy to see me, I was a little apprehensive about approaching this one. But when it comes to getting the good shot, you gotta take one for the team.
On another note, I'm pretty sure I made the best chicken of my life last night. I wish I had taken a picture of it now... it was monumental. I mixed some bread crumbs with garlic powder, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper and used that to coat the chicken. I then mixed up some noodles with sesame, soy and lemongrass. Although I'm not really supposed to eat pasta or lots of salt, I did have a small portion. I couldn't resist.
