I just don't know what to say! I had an unexpected and somewhat surreal 4-day weekend.
It was a blizzard, actually, called Evelyn, and she howled from Friday night 'til Sunday night, laying down 20-24" of snow/ice/sleet in my area.
I had two solid Pajama Days in a row -- unprecedented!
We got a few things done. Taxes, for one. Some quilting, some sewing... and I think I'm almost ready (arm feeling well enough) to try some knitting! Rusty even Kon-Mari'd his closet -- which is actually an antique knock-down walnut wardrobe -- and who knew you could fit so much unneeded stuff in there???
He's also continued working on the above-the-fridge cabinet -- he painted the interior last week and installed the doors on Saturday morning.
Door catches and a rack for vertical storage are all that remain!
The kids all managed to make their way over on Saturday evening for dinner. I think... did we have dinner together (this is where it started to get a bit surreal). Ali had come by earlier in the day to drop something off and (bonus!) Jun was with her, and I'd kept him for a while!
The baby's sleeping! So exciting!!
Crafting with Gin! Dancing to her own drummer, and definitely working outside the box -- and behind her back!
But travel for even a short distance was nearly impossible on Sunday. Not to mention just getting out of your house. Though my husband did venture out onto the roof to shovel off some snow!
The view out Kate's door.
I had a snow day yesterday, as did most -- at least for part of the day as we all dug out. Venturing out later to go to the grocery store, etc., with a stop at the coffee shop & Rusty's gallery.
Then went over and watched the kids for a while so Ali & Rod could run a couple of errands.
So now I'm rearranging the rest of this week, and dreaming of warmer weather...
...like it was on this day, 31 years ago, when Ali was brand new! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALISON!! It was around 70°F and I watched leaves pop out on the trees from my hospital bed. As of now, our best hope is next Tuesday and 60°F... and I'll take it!
