nothing like a beautiful blanket of snow to cover the crustiness of winter brown. it's beautiful.
the first day.
we are on day three of winter shut-down, and school is already cancelled for tomorrow. not that i have to worry about that since my kiddles are no longer at home.
all is quiet.
bamagirl left a day early because of projected nasty weather coming through. huntsville got a foot of snow. tuscaloosa just got rain… the freezing kind. about 1/2 of ice. niiiiice. so thankful she left early. she missed it by a day. whew!
boywonder went back on sunday and made it back in plenty of time to receive 8 inches of snow. school was cancelled on monday, and they won't be heading back on wednesday either.
the three low-riders are not fans. we had to shovel a place in the grass so they could pee.
we let them out the front so they could frolic on our way to the mailbox… they frolicked. briefly.
then they were shivering so we had to go in. should have cut some holes in a few legwarmers and made little body socks for the dogs.
it's quiet here. blanketed by a beautiful snow. alone in our empty nestedness. i like my empty nest. i do. but every january… it takes me a day or two to get used to it again.
we just came in from dinner. the ground is sparkling with the crystals of ice and new snow is flurrying. i don't think it will amount to much… other than another day off for the kids tomorrow.
here's where working from home is not an advantage! no excuses!
