My Photo Diary: February 2015

February 2015 Photo Diary | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

What comes to your mind when you look back at February?

For me, it's cold and snow...
And more cold.
And more snow.
It was the coldest February on record here in the northeast,
and I think it snowed every Sunday night, and in between, too.
The snow that fell in January is still here,
and I, for one, am sick of looking at it.
At least I didn't have to commute into NYC for work.
Other than the weather, the month was uneventul.
I'm good with that, but I am really looking forward to spring. 
Farewell, February!
Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

Superbowl Sunday! Prepared tons of game day food for Junior Goo Shoes and his friends. Wings, pigs, pizza bites...and antipasto on a stick. Recipes coming!

Groundhog saw his shadow today, and we got lots of snow. Second year in a row it snowed on Superbowl night, closing schools the next day. Even Mother Nature thinks Monday after Superbowl should be a holiday.

Discovered a great organic cafe...True Cafe, in Nyack, NY...the place that inspired my carrot-apple-coconut muffins.

Can't get enough Middle Eastern food. Hummus bowls with mushrooms and onions with my good friend. Clearly, this cell phone picture does not make it look appetizing.

Yeah, so I bought this cannister at Home Goods, and broke it before I even got in the car, by hitting it against the door.

It's a bit nippy. I know I'm not getting any sympathy from those of you experiencing sub-zero temperatures, but this is COLD for NJ.

An avocado a day...that's what they say. Oh. Well, anyway, 
that's what I say. Kind of counteracts the gummy candy.

Aw, shucks! Somebody misses me!

Two good things to look forward to:
one week until we change the clocks...
and three weeks till spring!
Happy March!

  1. Well, someone's been busy!!
    We bought the new Keureg as well. I am afraid it is going to start up and go into orbit, taking us with it.

  2. That has been a busy, productive fun month. It's always nice to look behind when beginning a new chapter.

  5. Lots of pictures! Love it- I really love the next to last one. It makes me think of the old Coneheads on Saturday Night Live. xo Diana

  6. Hahaha - cone of silence. That's a keeper and now I will always think of that at the salon. We are on puzzle #3 since Christmas. This one is slow going. Love your monthly pics as always. xo

  7. I didn't know salons still had those cone head dryers!! I don't go to a salon because my daughter is a hair stylist at a high end one and I can't afford her! She does my hair at home. Fun post!!

  8. I love Miss Sadie Snow Face! So sorry you broke that glass canister. Now, if my dentist was located where yours is, I would not dread going as much--mine is next to Publix and all I have to look forward to is a trip there after!

    Amy, I hope your March photo diary will bring a true beginning to you and all of us!

  9. I always enjoy seeing your month in pictures. Love that selfie under the unusual shaped hair dryer! I think it's so cool that you do so much in the heart of NYC! I can't believe your dentist is right across from the NBC news studio too!

  12. That was a very snowy month! I agree with your "an avocado a day" idea.

  13. Love your photos. I love looking at, playing in the snow...but you're right. I've over it! Thanks to your new partnership, I've been trying to cook more...Last night...epic fail! Hopefully, I can get better at this!

  14. It's always fun to view your photo diary for the month! :)

    Well I checked our forecast and it's more of the same...with a bit of freezing rain before the next round of cold and snow. Variety! :)
