Another Artsy Snowday

We had another winter storm blow in yesterday and the schools and library were both closed. It felt like a holiday! I baked pumpkin spice muffins for breakfast and spent some time relaxing and creating the postcard, above, to mail to Quilting Arts magazine for their 10th anniversary. The girls and I played scrabble and worked on a jigsaw puzzle and enjoyed each other's company. It was a fun and pretty stress-free day.

But this morning the snow had turned to ice, and although the schools were closed again, everyone seemed to be tired of it all, and tired of each other! We have some dripping around the inside of two of our windows, a result of too much ice and snow damming up the gutters, but we never lost power, thank God. The girls really pitched in to get the ice and snow off the driveway; it was soooo heavy and we have to heave it up to the tops of the mountains lining the driveway! But it's done and we should have a couple of normal school days coming up. Let's hope the groundhog's prediction is correct this year!
