Ice Day 2 

Yesterday was another great day. Rick and I both slept in. It's not unusual for him but for me - yes.  I did a little paperwork to get ahead since I'm going to be gone next week. Then I made myself some broccoli cheese soup using fresh broccoli. We've enjoyed the warm fire that has been going and also watching the little critters around the place.

Justin walked over while he was checking on his new little chickens. They have all survived this winter blast so far. He and his dad have it going with those birds! I have got to venture out soon and get pics of the new chickens!

 Snow Ice Day

Everyone got the call relatively early last night.  NO SCHOOL!

Teachers and kiddos slept very well if I was guessing. Not sure about parents.

 I got excited, and I didn't even have to be there. This morning brought more sleet as the clock ticked off the hours.


All sleet! 


Jonah slid over first this morning. He stayed until after lunch. The checker stacks tell how I faired in the game!


After lunch it was Glory's turn to slide over through the pasture. She beat me in cards. 

She wanted a few minutes out in the white stuff. It was cold!!


Now it's just Rick and me by the fire.

Other accomplishments for the day have already included:  taxes done and Shutterfly prints ordered! Oh yeah!

BTW the call has already come through this afternoon. Another Snow Ice Day tomorrow!

What a Difference

Saturday was an unbelievably warm 74 degrees. Today was 34 degrees. Yep...it was a perfect day for firewood, a pot of soup and some quilt-fabric cutting! Can't wait to see what tomorrow's weather will bring.
