Thank You Mother Nature!

What is it about snow that is so calming to watch?

I made a last-minute store run for necessities and the snow began falling on the drive back home. I watched as it fell diagonally at the windshield, trying hard not to be mesmerized by the patterns whirling right in front of me as I drove.

Once inside the warmth of our home, I was safe to enjoy the view from our many kitchen windows as I prepared a dinner of corned beef and cabbage with lots of carrots and onions. JB made his famous cornbread.

School is cancelled tomorrow! A reprieve--at last.

I'm worse than a teenager in high school, I know. But I promise I will make good use of the extra time.

But for now, I think I'll grab that over-sized afghan the city-girl daughter made for me and pile up with her on the couch to watch a movie.

"Good use of time...hell no...not unless that's code for that blankie, hot chocolate more chick flicks and food with no nutritional value. Please tell me you have footie pajamas.

Sounds wonderful!

We've enjoyed watching it from our windows too.

Beautiful picture! Snow days are fun when you don't have them often. Is everything back to normal today?
