Hunkerin’ down

Well, the rain is icy and the CDC is closed. I spent a couple of hours making sure that our families knew not to come in. (We announced it on Facebook and through email.) Measures have been taken so tomorrow isn’t too difficult: we have towels covering the car so it can be de-iced if need be, and there is a bag of ice melt handy. I am looking forward to not going to work… for work. (I bet we wind up going.)

The banner picture is of Tim showing his yo-yo to Emme Saturday evening. She likes him, which is unusual for our little scary-girl. Maybe later today I’ll put up some relevant ice picture.

    Enjoy your time off. In the spirit of a true snow day, you should do nothing but relax.

    Don’t go out the door, Lauren. You know what happened the last time you tried it. Boom on your bottom.

Getting prepared

IMG_4298

We are supposed to get some ice today and tomorrow. It’s enough that we are seriously considering closing the CDC on Monday, and we’re not so sure about how Tuesday is going to pan out, either. Of course, the weather could change and this could all blow over, too. After Tuesday’s fall, I’m none too […]

Serendipity Dolls

(Sorry for the scary faceless children. Privacy reasons, y’know.) My chop saw is broken, and I think that maybe God had a hand in it. Here’s the roundabout story. A new catalog came from Discount School Supply, and there was a picture in there that reminded me that I wanted to make some People Dolls […]

‘Leafs’, not leaves

IMG_4201

I got an email from our thermostat, so that must be the final confirmation that our robot overlords have taken control. The thermostat complimented us for being so miserly with the heat. Apparently we are in the top 10% of Nest users in our area, which makes us laugh heartily. What ‘area’ are we telling […]

Lauren fall down and go boom.

As I was eating breakfast Tuesday morning, I checked Facebook. Someone had posted that the roads were unexpectedly icy. I forgot about it until we were on the way out the door. I stepped out and said, “Be careful, the roads are bump bump bump oof ow.” Those last words were said as I slipped […]
