Half a Snow Day!

We got a little bit of snow on Sunday. But, we still made it to school this morning. I had a feeling it would be short lived.

Sure enough, by 11 o'clock, the decision was made to close school at 12 to get the children (and staff) home safely.

About an hour after I got home, the snow stopped, only to start heavily about 2 hours later.

So around 4, I got the idea to sit down, read a magazine, and sip on a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the snowfall.

What a life! So relaxing.

I just got the phone call. No school tomorrow. I guess I can have another relaxing day of quilting, reading, and drinking hot cocoa.

I did take some time to quilt on this quilt . . .

It has been 10 months since my mother died. Each time I quilt or pressure can food, I think of her and so want to call her up.

Monday evenings are when I sit with my dad. This week and last week, we had snow so I couldn't make it. Hopefully, I can get out tomorrow evening and visit with him, then.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. Many snow days for so many!!!! The storms have bypassed our area this year (the last 2 years were a very different story!!!) so only a very few "cold" days closed our schools. I am so sorry for your loss.......winter's coldness coupled with such can be difficult. Spring will soon bring a welcome warmth and show of fresh growth.........hang on-----it's coming!!!!! Hugs..........

  2. I always loved snow days when I was working ... they felt like such a gift! Even now that I'm retired, I still love a snowy day. My mom's been gone for over 8 years now (wow, it doesn't seem like it's been that long!), and I still think about calling or emailing her with updates and ideas when I'm quilting.
