A little snow makes for a fun day. I got up early and put chili in the crock pot, made cornbread, and headed out to meet Holly and Darbee Rae for brunch. When I left home it was just beginning to snow. The roads were fine. Holly lives in town about 6 miles from home. Once I got there the snow/sleet was getting heavy and sticking. One little excited girl ran out to greet me.
You can see the snow had just begun to stick.
So what did we do??? We turned right around and went back to our house to get my chili and to pack an overnight bag so that we could stay in town for the night with the girls. Mr. P. would not have to travel the country roads to get home and to work. So..... we are staying in town for the night and having a snow day/evening with the family.
I know,,, just a few inches, but business closed early, even Mr. P.'s plant shut down at 1 o'clock, restaurants closed and town as we know it is like a ghost town. But before we settled in we had to get out and go roam around. Since we never get snow, just be patient with me as I show you a few pictures.
When we got back to the house, snow was covering the grass.
The road leading to our driveway.
Holly and Darbee Rae in the driveway.
The patio bricks were already covered in the white stuff. There was none about 45 minutes earlier. WOW!
Love the snow on this magnolia tree.
Wow, the roads got really bad on the way back into town.
Darbee Rae couldn't wait to go outside with Papa to "play". Looks like Papa is doing lots of work. She has plans for her and Papa all evening.
Here they are painting snowmen with "puffy snow paint" made with shaving cream and glue. They may even get Stacy in the floor to play with the later.
Holly will play on her new embroidery machine and I brought material. Can you guess what I will make from this?
Our crock pots are full of yummy comfort food and the house is warm and smells so good.
Hoping all is well with you and wherever you are you are warm and have a cozy feeling inside.
Until next time.
