Daybook - January 10th: SNOW!

Outside my window ... the snow has been falling since 3 this morning. They say it will snow all day!  We've got about 4 inches on the ground as of early afternoon.

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!

Oh, if the kitchen fairy shows up, let her know we need her at our house, too!

By all means! I will certainly let her know she is needed at your home. Sadly, she has yet to make an appearance. Maybe later tonight after a glass of wine. :)

I love those snow days. ; ' ) well, I love them when we have power. Hot cocoa, warm fires and snuggly socks are some of my favorite things, too.

Amy - this will be our first real snow storm in the new house - out in the "country". If we loose power (a real possibility) we'll be without water - no power to run the pump. So, losing power now is a real issue unlike when we were in the 'burbs! (Is that how it is at your house?)

We enjoyed today because we did have power...but we'll see what tomorrow brings with the ice we are expecting tonight.
