February 1-7

 Even while I made my Sunday preparations on Saturday night we received notice that church had canceled.  I kept waking up during the night, but the snow didn't start until early morning.  Come Sunday the world was blanketed in white and SO COLD. I had to slip out for a picture or two but my face got so cold it made my eyes water . . . Still I love a good snow storm, particularly when I have nowhere to go.
 School was canceled the next day for Josh. He had a laid back day. August watched him get the shoveling done. We made a trip into Columbus for violin lessons mid day.
 Snow galore!
 And yet another snow day for Josh!  More snow Wednesday morning called for cancelled classes again, as well as all Wednesday night activities for the kids.  At this point, I was rather giddy with my life as a hermit. Josh continued his Narnia read-aloud with the kids. (Wonky picture frame disclaimer:  every time I look at that wall, I think I need to do some straightening, but you see they all need dusting, and I just haven't exactly been in a dusting mood so they remain wonky . . . you know, "If you give a mouse a cookie . . ." There is a snowball effect that will happen.)
A snowy sunrise.
 Josh and the kids departed at 7:15 for Arapahoe so that Josh could attend a funeral (and the kids wanted to see Arapahoe again and get ice cream at the pharmacy). ;o)  August and I had the day to ourselves.  We met a friend in Columbus for the GRAND OPENING of a beautiful new Hobby Lobby (I am so excited!). August took a nice nap upon returning home and I puttered about my super quiet house.  And then we had to meet up with the rest of the gang in Seward so we could head into Lincoln for a church activity.  It was kind of crazy, but there were pockets of quiet. ;o)
And a Saturday to recover from the crazy Friday.  No wrestling meet this Saturday (it was on Thursday). I think we could all get used to Josh having a two day work week. (2 snow days, plus an already scheduled Friday off). I have nothing overly interesting to say about this picture except August has a really big head, don't you think? ;o)

I have found that sometimes "Wonky" is just the best option! :)

I rather enjoyed all the snowed in days, too. I'm pretty good at being a home body. I suppose those are the kind of days that would be nice for tasks like dusting ;) tee-hee

Can't believe what a big boy August is turning into. Sniff.
