I'm sure everyone is tired of us northerners whining about the freezing cold and snow. Actually, I'm tired of us northerners whining about it! I notice that the south is getting hit too. I won't say I smiled or smirked or even felt a bit redeemed..you know.."Well, now they understand how it is" feeling. Seriously, I won't say it..out loud. Frankly, this is just the way it is and it is Winter and if we don't like it, then move! (not south because we all know it's cold down there too..hehehe..oh, sorry) I welcomed the weekend with open arms. Last week was busy at work and I was beat by Friday night. Saturday the weather was nasty. You can't tell by this photo, but it was almost white out conditions off and on all day.
I was nervous about it because Jack had a seminar in Columbus all day and he left around 6:30am. I was happy when he called to say he arrived but I knew it would be worse coming home. And it was! Thankfully all went well and his little Jeep got him there and back...thank goodness for 4 wheel drive! I, on the other hand, never left the house Saturday! I did the usual stay at home things...like make breakfast for these 2 little monkeys!
Notice the candlelight? It looks lighter in the kitchen then it really was. Lexi wanted all the lights out so we could really enjoy the ambiance! The menu request was pancakes, waffles, bacon and smoothies....and they were pretty tasty! Later in the morning the girls headed out to visit their other Grandma and I cleaned and read and looked outdoors to see if a swim in the pool would be nice....kidding!
It's just one big icecube! Brrrr...
Grabbing a chair and sitting on the deck was out too! Yes, those are my herbs still in the pots from Summer....please don't judge! I did make the house smell really yummy with an apple crisp baking in the oven.
Jack appreciated it when he came home!
I took this pic, not because the sky is blue..which is rare around here, but because it was this light out at 5:30pm! Yes folks, the days are getting brighter, later! I notice in the morning it's a teensy bit lighter too. Hope springs eternal! January only has a few days left....whew. Today I'm home for a low census day and it makes my weekend a little longer. I'm not complaining about that. The temps will rise to 10de. but even with that heat wave, school was closed. I may actually leave the house...perhaps take Eddy to the Creepy Woods....but he seems content to stay close to home and play with is toys.
Yes, YaYa, these are mine and I have them lined up the way I like 'em! So back off!
