Snowy Weekend

We’ve just had the most perfect snowed in weekend.  I’m so grateful that we never lost power, and all of our animals fared well.  The kids have been in an out, and it’s been messy.  But I learned that by bribing the older children with the promise of watching a movie, they could have everything cleaned up in minutes.  I did a lot of cooking and baking in the day or two leading up to the storm, so I didn’t have much work to do in the kitchen.  In fear of losing power, I also washed all the laundry in the house ahead of time.  That meant that there were huge piles of it to fold, but Jonny did all of that for me.  So, I have had a bit of a break to knit and to work.  We’ve watched the neighbor’s tractor drive up and down the street at regular intervals clearing the snow, and a car here and there, but we haven’t ventured out.  It’s been such a relief, knowing that there’s nothing to do but take care of the kids and the animals.  I think we’ve all done our best not to think ahead to this week and a return to regular life.  Not that it’s bad, it just feels like the end of a vacation, and I don’t think any of us are ready for that. Maybe we can stretch it into Monday….

p.s.  I’m all set for a shop update on Friday, 10 a.m. EST.  There will be lots of colorful yarn, and stitch markers too!  I’m pretty excited about this one.
