I am sitting in my office and it is still dark outside, but outside is blanketed in snow and a few minutes ago my phone buzzed with a school alert - no school today due to inclement weather. I look out and watch the snow fall in the glow of the street lamp. There are few cars passing by and have only seen a plow pass a couple of times. The street lamp goes out as its sensor is likely covered in snow and when the light comes back on a guy in shorts, yep, in shorts, jogs by. That is insanity, not dedication. I think, go back to bed dude - it's a snow day.
I am not sure who is most pleased, me or the girls. Teachers like snow days as much as students and we are a house of teachers and students. The girls will cuddle in, stay in pajamas all day and watch movies and dance with the Wii. I made a late night might-be-snow run to the Stuff Mart last night and picked up mini marshmallows for hot chocolate, a few favorite foods, and a new movie to surprise them with when the I am bored whine begins. I have a crafty idea as well. We will keep busy. I would love to cuddle up and work on a special crochet project in progress, but know that a day off school also means a few hours of work at home. Maybe I will make myself a deal - work and play. In the meantime, I wish you a happy snow day. I am heading down to the kitchen to make muffins to warm up the house and my family's tummies.
The vintage potholder is made with crochet and ric-rac. It is one in my collection I do not believe I have shared before.
