Just a dusting?

The weathermen all said we'd just get a "dusting"....nothing more than an inch or so. Boy were they wrong! I've been out of school for 6 days!! We ended up with a bottom layer of thick ice and then about 6 inches of snow!! Does this look like a light dusting to you? Don't get me wrong......we had a FABULOUS time playing in the snow, watching movies, crafting, playing on the computer, making cookies, and napping. And when I say "we", it was just me and Big Daddy and Pippen. No children. But a snow day is a snow day! Pancakes and bacon for everyone!!!

But now, Monday is close by and there's lots of work to make up. I've been the grasshopper playing all this's about to catch up with me. I'm ok with that, though. Usually I'm the ant, always working.

Did you have a "light dusting" where you are? What fun things did you do?

Day 4 and counting............

Tomorrow will be our 4th day off from school this week due to "inclement weather". Unbelievable!! Ice is everywhere and temperatures are barely going over 20 degrees today. A "warm spell" compared to previous days!

All of those "snow days" in Spring have flown away now. Spring Fever will be even harder this year since we won't have any breaks. The big question still far into June will we be in school? When you start school in August, that makes for a short summer.

And time keeps ticking away.............


P.S. I just love clocks. My parents bought this one for my grandfather when they were newlyweds, stationed in Berlin in the '50's. Don't know why I'm so attracted to old clocks.......especially when I don't like being a "slave" to time. Hmmmmmm........way too many random thoughts today. Interesting.........

Arctic weather........brrrrr!

Arctic weather came blowin' through last night. With the wind chill it was 0 degrees in Dallas today. Ice school!!! And they've cancelled school for tomorrow, too!! Since I did all of my chores today, I think tomorrow will be a creative day. I just bought a bunch of new card making "stuff", stamps, glitter, etc. Think I'll turn up the music and PLAY!!
Hope everyone is staying warm! It's definitely is going be a two dog night. I need another scottie!!!!
