Forget the Snow! Time for Ice Cream!

I've lived here for more than four years now, and I must admit I've become pretty assimilated. For instance, tonight, as the snow was gently wafting over the burbs, my husband and son said they wanted ice cream. I'm still adjusting to daylight savings time (exhaustion has overtaken my every thought), so I suggested picking up some Ben & Jerry's on the way home from our tasty dinner at Sichuan Garden II in Woburn. (Amazing mushi pork and beef war bah, by the way.)

"It's just as fast to stop by Bedford Farms," said my hubby. "We'll get it to go if you like."

Other than my creeping fatigue, I didn't bat an eye at the thought of heading to an ice cream stand while the snow fell. Heck--the calendar says it's spring, dammit! That means ice cream at an outdoor stand! We joined several others who stood patiently, literally shivering while waiting for our orders to be filled.

New flavor, too--chocolate mousse. Mmmm.

Besides, the flowers really need the final April snow in order to bloom nicely. And we've had such a dry winter.....

This is the pretty kind of snow. And the kind of snow that doesn't quite bother you when you're standing in line for ice cream. :)

Exactly! Although I stupidly didn't check the weather this morning and didn't realize it was going to snow. Came to work in Mary Janes instead of my trusty snow booties. But it seems to have stopped now!
