Cold and Wet Long Valentine and President's Day Weekend

Monday is the President Day so it is another holiday and a long weekend for some (including us i.e. Michael). The next public holiday will be in late May! Sucks huh? And to make this last long weekend/holiday before May even more fun, it is going to be cold and wet. We have been getting on and off nice days for the whole winter and a few storms too. This is hopefully the last storm for this winter. Of course I am thankful that we are not getting -20F or -50F but you know how much I 'love' too cold or too hot weather. And those rain. Sigh .... let me just say that if I were to get sick, it will be during rainy season.


Tomorrow is a Valentine's Day. We don't really celebrate it but nevertheless would still wish each other on that day. I 'forbade' him from buying me flowers during this time of the year. I told him that he can buy me flowers (not that he buys me flowers too often. Men! :P) anytime of the 51 weeks in the year for half or 1/3 of the price that he would have to fork out during this 1 week period so why bother. Me stingy? Nah. Frugal? You betcha! So tomorrow, what we are going to do is have a poker day/night with some friends and neighbours. His friends of course have to ask him 10x if he knows what day it is when he invited them. They don't want him to get into trouble. I guess that is my Valentine 'gift' for my Baby. *wink*

Happy Valentine's Day my friends and have a great weekend!

2009 Winter Holiday - Yosemite National Park II

Can you see me? :P

To get this view, we had to walk through a forest-like area with slippery ice path and climb a few big boulders.

Tired after all the walking and holding on for my dear life. Walking on ice sure ain't easy!

Trying to find the best way to get pass the boulder

The icy path to get to the falls

This one looks like we're in Narnia

This is the beginning of the icy path. It was cold as hell too.
