Holy Snow Batman! Our streets are covered deep with snow, and stuck cars. I have had the huge blessing of being able to stay inside and hibernate. Well, maybe hibernate is the wrong word, but not going out in this snow monstrosity is pretty nice. My hubby even drove me to the grocery store last night, so I didn’t have to brave the roads. Monday, was a complete, stay inside all day kind of day, Tuesday we stayed in besides that quick trip for groceries. Alas, it must stop, time for kids programs tonight. I may actually have to get dressed and drive somewhere. Gasp! Staying inside, cozy by the fire has its benefits, and not just staying warm. we have listened to many Christmas Carols, really getting us ready for the holidays. And we have also been baking away! Although muffins don’t last long in this house, and these will be long gone by the holidays, it was still nice to have a cozy muffin and some tea by the fire, on these cold, cold winter days.
