The Winter Months


The New Year blows in snow, ice, cold, and more snow.  I may not be a big fan of scraping ice off my windshield before 6:00 in the morning (then again who is?) but there is something to be said for snow days.  In spite of the below freezing temperatures I personally was definitely able to make the most of winter - specifically by getting an entire week off work and spending it with my family, my cat, my blankie, my pajamas, and Jack Bauer in a 5 day tv marathon in front of the fire.  It was the week of hibernation I had hoped for, and honestly I think the forced extra rest did us all some good.

Sammy had a birthday - three years old now! We made the morning extra-special by putting candles on his muffin.| On one of the extra cold days, the girls had a day off and I didn't.  We made a nice and cozy fort in the living room, and yes, the TV was inside it. Several blankets, pillows, books, and movies made it in too!



I may have a problem. With buying books.  Maybe I'll buy more books to make myself feel better about my problem.


  1. Oooh, winter. I miss it so much, and flipping calendar pages into September is so exciting, because the snow is almost here again!

    I may~ sympathize with your book problem. Also, that overhead picture of Sammy playing with his barnyard is a/dor/able.

  2. Good afternoon!
