Outside my window... You're not going to believe this... Well, actually you might. :)
A peek into my day... Because of the snow, (and lack of sleep) I declared a snow day today and kept the boys home. They're currently "skating" on the living room floor in their socks to The Nutcracker. The first thing they did when I told them we weren't going to school was to throw on their snow clothes and head out to build a snowman! It didn't last long, maybe half an hour, because this snow is just SO thick and wet, it's the kind that soaks through your snowpants in a matter of minutes. So we had hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows for second breakfast, and they've been delightful ever since. I'm pretty sure Joe is pretending to be Stephen's pet snowman...
I am thankful... I am thankful for online plant catalogs (dangerous though they may be!!), Skype, my family, my smartphone, my snuggly beast and sweet boyzenberries, my Geologist and my home. I'm SO thankful to live in Denver and not in Houston! I'd much rather have snow in May than no snow ever! I'm thankful for blogging friends and a Mom who almost always knows the answer, for re-discovering Jane Eyre with my sister, and for the gift of being able to plan ahead, because we aren't going anywhere for a while!
Just for fun: The Geologist and I had a day date down to Colorado Springs to help scout out new homes for my sister when my fam moves out here this summer. I love it down there, so many memories! We found some great options and stuffed ourselves full of yummy food. BBQ, with the best hot wings I've ever had, then a stroll around Old Colorado City, where we found THIS place:
Willy's Tea Room and EmporiumSo you know I had to go in! The front was full of fun, silly stuff, mugs and salt shakers and a whole wall of Doctor Who trinkets.
I am looking forward to... WEDNESDAY!! Our carpet is being installed on Wednesday!! I can't wait!! No more sweeping dog hair tumbleweeds, no more scratching the floor to bits, and I think Bracken might be a bit more comfortable too. She's been just a bit sore lately, and I never realized how tense she might be, walking on these slippery floors. Not to mention it's going to be pretty! :)
