That was a LONG one.

This has been a crazy day.  I had two appointments one after the other but before I left I had to shovel out the van.  And there was a LOT of snow to shovel.  I actually only did the front of the house.  I will have to do the rest tomorrow so the mailman will deliver to us again.  I am NOT looking forward to that!

This is my yard on Sunday . . . Bright, beautiful, sunny.


This is my yard today . . . Cold, bright, snowfilled, but at least the storm is over.


When I got home I had to put the stuff away, take care of all the Little Prince stuff that only I can do.  Then I did homeschool with the girls before making pancakes for supper.

It has been a full day of me running around and not sitting down but it was a good day.  Now that I am finally sitting down, I'm resting with a cup of herbal tea and going to watch a show with Prince Charming.

The kids loved the books I brought home.  I love how much joy they get from books.

Well . . .It's Here Now

Winter has well and truly arrived now.  We are in the midst of a big snow storm.  I don't really mind as long as we have power, food, and heat I am fine.

I took this picture soon after the storm started, there is a LOT more snow out there now.

In the meantime, we spent the day having fun together.  Even with the storm, it was a good day.

Gratitude Sunday

Gratitude Sunday
Sundays heart felt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful.

I have lots of reasons to be grateful this week:

1.  Watching my girls be creating, drawing pictures, coloring, cutting and pasting.  I love their quiet, creative souls.

2.  The sweet way that Princess Magpie declared Elmo her best friend when she realized all the cool things this toy could do.  She even had him sit at the table for supper with her (on a booster seat of his own LOL)

3.  Sunny, lovely, warm days in February.  Something inside me sings when the sun shines.  This has been my favorite winter of all time.

4.  The sweet way my boy has bonded with his therapist.  I am so lucky that autism hasn't hidden the sweet loving person that my boy is. 

5.  Having creative ideas of where to go with my front porch.  I just know that over time, this is going to be so cute!

Wow! That's Ugly!

I  just watched "Grease Live".  It was so much fun!  I really enjoyed their take on one of my favorite movies of all time.  I love that Prince Charming watched it with me and enjoyed it as much as I did.

I was given the world's ugliest couch.  I have decided that it is too ugly to live in my house.  It is okay for a play room or a basement and it will be joining my table and boxes in a storage unit.  It did make me realize that a nice one would look good there but I have never seen an uglier couch in my life!  And I have owned some ugly hand-me-down couches!
