5:30 am, my alarm goes off, I check my phone and BEHOLD! A two hour school delay in anticipation of the coming winter storm.
I congratulate myself on picking up milk last night, and roll over to doze back off.
6:20 Joseph joins me (heaven forbid he sleeps in). I tell him the news, and he is giddy with plans of how we can fill those extra two hours.
6:45 I’m playing (and winning!) my second round of a card game with Joseph.
6:55 Gangs all here. Good morning my adorable cranky children! Why are you all awake if you are cranky?
7:15 I receive the good (?) news that school is closed for the whole day. I crank up “Let it Snow” on youtube and tell the boys
Joyful dancing ensues.
From there it is a blur
Hot chocolate after being out in the cold
(note: They fall through the cooling racks. Rethink these for next time.)
Fresh bread paired with vegetable rice soup
The snow is not here (is not coming?) but we do have freezing rain and icicles galore. Spirits are high, and I just turned on the fireplace.
This day can’t get much better-
And its only 1:31pm
