Winter Wonderland

Six inches of snow fell late Sunday evening, and it has since turned to ice.  Our boys have been out of school all week, and won’t go back until Tuesday due to MLK Jr. holiday.

It was fun the first day, sledding, throwing snowballs, and hiking mountain trails in the snow.

The second day it was still fun, but the ground was icier:  better for sledding but more difficult to get around.

The third day the ground was covered in ice.  It was my son’s birthday, and he was stuck at a friend’s house after spending the night.  He couldn’t walk home because it was too icy (the snow was powdery enough to walk to his buddy’s house the day before).  He waited until the sun came out and tried walking home.  He fell a couple of times, but was slowly making progress when some friends picked him up in their 4WD Jeep and gave him a ride home.

I’m now officially over it.  I ran out of Coke Zero yesterday (a true emergency), but we still have milk, eggs, bread, and other staples.  Cabin fever has set in, and the kids are grumpy.  I got out all kinds of art supplies, science project books, and anything else I could think of to keep them busy.  They’re tired of sledding (as am I), and my husband can’t convince any of us that this is fun anymore.

Sounds like a great day to quilt, doesn’t it?  How has the snow affected you and how have you coped?  I’d love to know!

    Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, wonderful blog!|

    I like to get my inspiration from really meaningful phrases said by truly great people like ???Happiness lies in virtuous activity, and perfect happiness lies in the best activity, which is contemplative???, do you know where I can find thematic compiltaions of those?

    I must get across my admiration for your generosity in support of men and women who need help on this one issue. Your real dedication to passing the solution up and down was really practical and have without exception enabled men and women much like me to attain their aims. Your own warm and friendly hints and tips entails this much to me and further more to my office workers. With thanks; from each one of us.

    Sorry for off-topic, I am thinking about creating an informative web site for individuals. May probably start with posting interesting facts just like”The Brimstone butterfly (Gonepterix rhamni) has the longest lifetime of the adult butterflies: 9-10 months.”Please let me know if you know where I can find some related information such as here
