I am kinda at loose ends these days after Christmas. I cleaned out the fridge, and cleaned out a Christmas ornament box that I had not seen the bottom of in years. I also had a meeting to attend…I hate meetings…much ado about nothing.
Far Guy started gathering “stuff” for me, we hope to put his Military career in a scrapbook. I have the book and the pages and papers galore. I started a folder for photos. Gathering is the first step.
I need to make a list of all the things I want to accomplish in the next few months.
It is too cold to venture out of the house/yard. The wind came up yesterday late in the afternoon and the artic blast arrived. Friday it was almost 30 degrees and felt like spring could come any moment and now we are plunged back into the deep freeze. Old Man Winter will do that to you…give you one marvelous winter day and then a week of bone chilling cold just to remind you Minnesnowda weather is not for sissies. Besides that it keeps out the riff raff.
We have gotten about 35 inches of snow so far this winter ( She who sees robins first is keeping track). It has snowed a little every day for many days. The snow stick shows about 11 inches. Snow settles. Chance even found one of his lost balls on Friday in the warm up. Up here in da nort even a ball found in a snow bank is good news.
We will probably de-decorate the downstairs tree for a bonding indoor activity today.
This is our Rachael and Chad Ornament. Rachael had all the supplies out on a table at the wedding reception and Far Guy made an ornament for our tree. There is red and silver tinsel and a slip of paper inside that says: “So they are no longer two but one flesh, what God has joined together no man can separate.” It was a nice activity for people indoors whilst everyone else was tubing or taking photos
