At about eight last night it started to snow and it continued most of the night. This morning around eight it started to sleet. It sleeted until this afternoon. It is cold outside - 21, cold and windy.
#3 could not wait to get outside, she had big plans. Since #1 and #2 decided to stay at school and get snowed in, she had to settle with her dad and me as her snow buddies. (Yay for me!) So early this morning I was digging through the cedar closet looking for snow gear that would fit me. I did finally end up finding some old ski pants and after five hours of layering, pulling, yanking and working up a sweat, I was ready to go outside.
We didn't get very far on our igloo because the snow was so powdery it wouldn't stick together. After we finally gave up, The Man shoveled off the front porch steps and #3 and I came inside and made hot tea and chili. We also painted a little. She has an art project due this coming week and I decided it would be easier for her to sit at the table if I sat and painted with her. When our projects are finished I will let you see them. I painted a sunflower and she painted a lilly. I guess deep down we are wanting warmer weather and spring to get here!
She has to enter hers into the Art Extravaganza at school for a grade,
thank goodness I do not!
