Life here in the 'burbs is a bit boring right now. We have had so much snow in the last two weeks that we sometimes have trouble getting out and about. The advantage of living at the top of a hill is not worrying about floods...the disadvantage, everything is downhill...down an icy hill...by a river. The upside is I have been forced to do a little bit of meal planning in case I cant get out easily....I actually planned, shopped for and cooked for three days straight! That's a bit of a miracle around here as I have often found it too hard to cook with the Little Prince around but he has learned to stay behind the kitchen table when I am opening the oven so now I can actually work in the kitchen without worrying about him.
Because I have been a bit snowed in I havn't been doing very much in the way of fun activities...no lunches, events, snooty pursuits. My babysitter even had to cancel on me for a couple of months as she has classes on the same night at my Rotary meetings so I have been absent for a little while now.
There is something to be said for January's cold snowy weather. There is always so much to be done in the house and the temptation to go out is squashed by -30 degree days. My closets are organized, the drawers are becoming less and less full. The laundry is all done and the Christmas decor was packed away weeks ago. The basement renovation has been coming along nicely as the contractors are happy to be working in a nice heated space rather than outside building house frames.
We have had to dig paths for our little dog to get around the backyard. I let him out the other day and he vanished in a snow drift. We have to keep shoes at the back door in case he gets 'stuck' with cold toes and cant make it back to the door. Yes, all the males in my life are a little tender and fragile. Scottish women are strong for everyone, keep families together and rescue cold dogs from winter.
I keep thinking I should be creating fun, but to be honest, I just dont want to! I am enjoying my hibernation and think I will limit my outings to one a week while focusing inward.
Dont miss my Valentine's Day giveaway!
Have a fabulous day!
