Snowing! 2015

It is really, really, really snowing here.  The weather forecasts say that we may get 15 inches of snow. I think it's fun for many reasons.

  • It's beautiful and it's unusual.  We almost never get that kind of a snowfall, usually an inch or less. I'm cooped up in the house with some very nice people.  
  • The electricity is still on.  
  • I work at home and also, I don't have to work today. (!)
  • I know that Mom is being taken care of and I don't have to worry about her being alone in her house.
  • I have a new afghan I just started and plenty of art journaling supplies.   
  • Though I don't like to get out in it a whole lot, I like to watch the kids have fun.  
This weekend we've done all kinds of wintery weather fun indoor things.  We've watched Frozen and Leap Year, probably 2 of my favorite movies of all time and very appropriate for this time of year.  We've eaten Valentine chocolate and all kinds of crock pot veggie soup and we started playing Shanghai, a game of progressive rummy that I learned in childhood and haven't played for a long, long time.  It's been fun introducing the kids to it.  

Scraphgan 2 is finished and is now on Mom's bed at her assisted living facility.

The kids learned to write in Elvish runes yesterday.

It's so pretty!

That is so cool to see the Elvish! My kids did that a while back too. ;-)
