that the weather around here lately wasn't very Winter-like? Well, somebody heard, and decided to remedy the situation.
We had some snow, just a little, which is a bit of a rarity around here. The boys were so pleased, and I must say, so was I. Snow is nice when your cupboards are full, you have no where to, and the fire keeps the house so toasty. We've been reading The Long Winter as a family, so I think I've been exceptionally aware and appreciative of our ability to be warm and fed.
Other than snow, I've been trying to get myself organized around the house. I think, sometimes, when you live out of the way, and you know that no one is going to be stopping by, it is very easy to just let certain things go, like the kitchen, and opt to surf Pintrest for longer than I would ever publicly admit. So I bought a new planner. It was very, very ugly, yet very, very practical. I sewed a cover for it. Now it's pretty, and I'm filling it with lists, like, "clean the kitchen, do the laundry, and school with the kids", but deep down inside, I'm itching to sew something else.
Now I feel very rambly. Daniel is upstairs trying to finish up just a little bit more work, then we are going to watch Downton Abbey. With a gin & tonic. Summer in a glass. I hope he's done soon.
