Due to a thick layer of ice, several inches of snow, and below freezing temps, school was canceled for 4 days last week (Tues-Fri). Several people suffered from cabin fever, but I was perfectly content. Here's what I did to keep busy:
Day 1- Tuesday:
We jumped in the car (outfitted with snow tires) in the morning and headed out to take pictures at Fort Phantom. Here are some of my favorites.
Day 2- Wednesday:
I stayed in the sewing mode and whipped up a 2nd apron from a couple of Dad's dress shirts and scraps left over from Tuesday. This apron is reversible.
On this day, I tried out another Christmas gift. I received this beautiful pasta roller attachment for my mixer from my brother.
The rest of Thursday was like Spring cleaning. I did some of those chores that I only get around to about twice a year like vacuuming the blinds and baseboards.
Day 4- Friday:
I did a little more cleaning and Super Bowl food prep, and then we ventured out to see if we could make it to town. Roads were clearing up, so we ran a few errands. Hobby Lobby was one of our stops and helped me on 2 more little projects. Josh discovered this as we were looking for hooks for my new aprons:
Day 5- Saturday:
Bath day for Titus. I also did my normal weekly cleaning, and our washer drain pipe finally thawed so I could catch up on laundry.
Saturday night I went out with a couple of friends. We ate at Carino's and saw The King's Speech. It was great!
Day 6- Sunday:
Church as usual then Super Bowl party! We hosted a party at our house this year and invited young marrieds/singles. We had a really great time and appreciated everyone braving the weather (it rained and snowed again) to join us.
So that was our 6-day weekend. Josh kept the fireplace going which kept us nice and cozy. Of course we went outside and played in the snow and took walks around the property every day as well. Titus is wiped out, and I think he was glad to see us leave for work this morning. Now he can get back to his regularly scheduled 10-hour naps.
