We are home schoolers. We have no need for a snow day! But, that’s exactly what we’re taking today. Because I am a pushover. And so is my husband, because ultimately it was his decision. My kids were begging to be let off and I bravely passed the buck to our “principal” for the decision.
Of course, you’ll probably not hear a whole lot of complaining from this teacher. So far, I’ve had a relaxing breakfast, read my Bible, did some writing, took pictures of husband and daughter and snow, and read a bunch of blogs. Now, husband and I are eating dark chocolate M&Ms and watching Bonanza episodes on TV Land–because some times you just gotta!
We did get a lot of snow yesterday afternoon, evening, and through the night and combined with the winds it created some huge drifts. Most everything around here is shut down today. We aren’t going anywhere, but we have everything we need right here, so I don’t mind. Last night I made chicken vegetable soup and it makes great leftovers for lunches! Every second spent over a hot pressure canner last summer was so worth it as I emptied a jar of potatoes, carrots, corn, and green beans into my soup.
My parents and brother on the West Coast called, and so did my sister in FL to see if we were surviving in the storm. I told them we were quite warm, safe, and content. I’m so very glad we didn’t lose power!
Here’s the pictures I took this morning:
And now I am going to watch Enchanted with my girls.
