I am listening to ... my daughter and her friend playing with the King Louis. They are warming up from a couple of hours in the snow.
I am wearing ... jeans (imagine that), tan knit top, bright robin egg blue top over that (layering, you know), a gray wool sweater, and a pretty blue, tan, purple scarf to keep my neck warm.
I am so grateful for ... snow days, homemade hot cocoa, warm fires, and snuggly socks.
around the house ... did not get Christmas taken down this weekend, I think this might be a perfect activity for a snow day. Guess I'd better get started. My kitchen is in serious need of the Kitchen Fairy. I think she has taken a snow day, too.
from the kitchen ... pot of broth simmering on the stove for soup tonight. Hopefully some homemade bread, too.
one of my favorite things ... our new fancy coffee press. (old one hit the floor and shattered a couple of weeks ago)
recent milestones ... Baby L's newest phrase is "Me, too?" which we hear anytime someone asks if they can do something. Pretty cute. We like to make up silly, but awful things to ask and see if she'll say, "Me, too?" "Can I go have my ingrown toe nail extracted?" "Me, too?"
a few plans for the rest of the week ...
a lot will depend on the snow - we may be home quite a bit this week but if not....
:-: meeting at the church office Wednesday evening
:-: ballet and tap for E on Thursday
:-: some friends over for dinner on Friday
picture thought ...
|Little E and hubby (out of the frame) clear snow off the car. Didn't last long, within a few minutes it was covered again!|
