The calendar might say March but it’s still “officially” winter. One only needs to glance out the window around here to know that. Two and a half weeks until spring “officially” arrives.
My boys are off school yet again for a cold day this time. Sub-zero wind chills, not safe to let the kids hang out at the bus stops. Our road also doesn’t look great after Saturday night’s snowfall. The cold apparently makes the melting salts not works as well.
Lucky (?) me, I still get to go to work later. And for a full day. Let’s see if I can squeeze in planning my week with Sandra over at Diary Of A Stay At Home Mom before I need to leave.
Already discussed it some. Current temperature is -1 degrees but windchill is -13. News said 50 degrees below normal for our area at this point in the year. We are supposed to climb our way up to a balmy 37 degrees by Thursday but there’s a…wait for it….chance of more snow that day as well. I like seeing the 54 degrees and thunderstorms predicted for Saturday, that’s normal, I think.
Right Now I Am
Trying to get this post typed up before I finish getting ready for work. Also, drinking coffee and thinking about what to have for breakfast.
I always think of great things for this category in the evenings and think, oh I should share that. And then, by the time I write my post. I’ve forgotten! Maybe I’ll start writing my thoughts down in draft form so I can remember what I’m thinking about each night.
On My Reading Pile
Started reading Crucible by James Rollins since the library sent me a courtesy notice about its due date on Friday. New release so no renewals. I had a bit of trouble getting into this one but now I’m enjoying it enough I’d rather stay home and finish my book than go to work!
On My TV
God Friended Me was finally on again last night so I took a break from the Z’s of Z-Nation over on Netflix to watch it. Maybe it means Seal Team is set to return soon as well. Been watching The Voice with my husband, I wasn’t sure I would but I do like John Legend as a new judge.
Favorite Blog Post
Found this article entitled: Gratitude for My Teenager-Even When She Is Difficult to be thought-provoking.
Something Fun To Share
This Margarita Bark recipe made me think spring thoughts. I’d like to try it (probably sans the Tequila).

Looking Around The House
Unmade bed, covered kitchen table, muddy paw prints on the living room floor….still stuck inside and still winter outside.
