Although our snow storm didn’t leave us with as many inches as some of our snows, the nice sheet of ice under the snow – from the sleet beforehand – really made commutes home for many a nightmare. There were, however, some really encouraging news stories of people helping one another….like the couple serving hot tea to motorists stranded on the roads outside their home!
Yes, we had a snow day yesterday:) I don’t have children in school anymore. I don’t work at their school any longer but something about a snow day is just plain fun! I love the unexpected change of routine and the chance to stay home and snuggled in – which is especially nice when the family is snuggled in with me.
Thankfully, we all made it home safe and without too terrible of delays. The snow was coming down so thick – it was beautiful. I tried to get some pictures…..but they are from the back door as I was not willing to go outside. I am totally a “from the inside snow admirer”!!
Our snow day was very productive and, also, “one of those days!!” In the afternoon, our daughter loaded the dogs in the car – just for a run to Petsmart to get out of the house – and the car would not go…literally. Not sure what the problem was, but Hubbie was able to fix that one without too much trouble. A bit later, Hubbie wanted to “get out of the house”…..it is me who is content to stay inside:)…and wanted to run to Starbucks. I initially balked but he really wanted to go, so we bundled up and headed out. We made it to the garage. Yes, our car wouldn’t start. Not even a joke. Apparently, the cold weather killed our battery. Or, at least, I am blaming it on the cold weather. Hubbie fixed that one, too, but we had no lattes.
But that was okay with me. I cleaned. I cooked (or puttered in the kitchen is a better description of me in the kitchen). I read. And I caught up with blogs. That’s when I was inspired by Nellie to do some decorating simply with things I already have around the house. I worked for over an hour in our guest room – which we call Tyler’s room as furniture and some of his favorite things are in that room – and had the best time. Thanks, Nellie, for the inspiration!! I will have to take some pictures……
But I’m off to the vet – follow-up appointment for Mr. Rascal. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy these days of winter:) One of my favorite things about winter –
