This was already going to be a crazy week schedule-wise and now it snows!  No school for the kids today.  We woke up to 3 inches on the ground today - I think it's been at least five years since we've had that much snow!

Glad the snow came today, though.  Yesterday I had a fun photo shoot for Lake Norman Magazine.  They're running a story on my book and the photographer, John Simmons, wanted to play up the "I Can't Cook" theme.  Slade had just spent the morning cleaning the kitchen and getting it camera-ready.  We spent an hour messing it up.

I'll post the pictures when the article runs and I hope they let me use a bunch here even if they don't all make the magazine.  We took a set of pictures with the classic powder-on-the-face pose.  I didn't put enough on, apparently, so Slade took matters into his own hands.  He tossed a handful right in my face!  It was hard not to just crack up.  Hopefully the pictures won't be too goofy.  I'm sure the pictures will be fine.. it's me I hope that's not too goofy!

I hope the snow is all gone by tomorrow because I have something else to do.  Our public television station WTVI decided to broadcast a fundraiser for the Foundation for the Carolinas.  This is the group that, among many other things, is helping people in need this winter with an emergency fund.  WTVI asked me to help host the special which airs Thursday at 8pm.  Turns out a lot of the people I used to work with over at Channel 3 here in Charlotte are helping out.  Looking forward to seeing some old friends.

I don't have any TV clothes anymore.. I was going to go buy something to wear today.  Oh well.  It'll be home to play in the snow with the kids today.  Take advantage while we can – it's supposed to be 60 degrees by Saturday!
