Snowed In Day Two!

We so rarely get snow in the South...the snow and ice virtually shut our state down.  People rush to the store for bread and milk...I personally have a stash of chocolate...so I am good!  As I was dozing and debating whether to get up I heard the sound of THUNDER and thought great...no snow day for us.  I have never experienced thunder and snow.  I awakened to a beautiful winter wonderland!  Dear Husband and I had a good ole Southern breakfast after which he went downstairs to his man cave...I watched the multitudes of birds, watched Moe Kitty stalk said birds from his perch on the windowsill and took a few pictures.  I read some of the book club selection and some magazines, did laundry and took a most needed, wonderful nap!


I noticed over on facebook that many of my friends were getting cabin fever...two days at home...oh my!  Myself, I am thrilled to be home in my jammies...the cat and I are enjoying the birds, the silence (since dear husband went in to work) and the beauty of it all.  I think many of my friends are entertaining children or teenagers...been there, done that...I can understand their restlessness with all the noise and mess!



I have chicken and rice with mushrooms on the stove...lots of warm beverages...a toasty fire...a quilt...plenty to  read...Life is Good!  All the responsibilities of work will soon take over but for now...I plan to enjoy being "snowed in".

I don't get those who complain about being home for two days. Of all the places to be, I like being home the best! Though this is only snow day one for me.....

I hear you loud and clear! I have absolutely loved being at home the last couple of days. Yesterday we did exciting things like play Scrabble (with a real board and tiles!), watch a movie, and drink hot chocolate. And of course I managed to get a little reading in too! It was divine.

I was one of those snowed in friends tending to children. In reality that meant keeping said children from killing each other and/or lighting the house on fire. Georgia (7 yrs) has taken to "setting up" the fire. Thank goodness she only tried lighting the fire ONCE. (One of those cases where once is too many) - esp. since she used a good twelve matches during that one unsuccessful attempt. I know I will look fondly back at these days when I have reached maturity, but right now it's more like conquering Everest. Love the pics Connie -- you are a pro w/ that camera! XO
