Well, no school again today, and the road is still a mess. Our high yesterday was 28. The kids said when they were out yesterday they saw several cars struggling to get up the hills leading out of my neighborhood up to the main road. I wouldn't attempt to go anywhere.
Mother asked the kids yesterday how they felt about this 3 day enforced snowcation and they both enthusiastically said they loved it.
My cousin Lesleigh said she's been out playing in the snow at her apartment complex and having a "snowpalooza" of a time.
The little song I wrote yesterday was just for fun. In all truthfulness, there have been few raised voices, and very little quarreling in our house. We're all getting along remarkably well. This is the first time the family has been all together in one building without going anywhere [except outside to play for a couple of hours at a time] in, like, ever.
Now, yesterday I texted Michael while he was sledding and told him to come home and eat lunch at 3, as I had made egg salad. He had been bugging me to make egg salad and I had done as he asked. At 3:05 he calls from Colton's house and says he has already eaten lunch and can he stay longer. Well, I was very ticked off and said no, you have to come home. If he had called and told me what was up before he had eaten I probably would've said OK, but waiting until afterwards....
I have wondered whether or not across the south we will see a "baby boom" nine months from now, due to everyone being stuck inside this week. [wink wink nudge nudge]
Since we've had no Netflix mail delivery, there was no movie watching last night. The kids got in my bed and watched my little TV, and Mother and I watched a PBS program on the big TV on Carol Burnett, which was excellent. I then watched a PBS program on Jeff Bridges, which was also terrific. I can tolerate PBS because they don't have commercials.
Here are some shots from yesterday, but the first two were made by my cousin Mark, a wonderful photographer. I told Mark the one below would make a lovely Christmas card.
Mark also took the one below, which I love because it has such an amazing abstract quality -
These two I made on the back patio, because I was so intrigued by the icicles.
