So, here are some pictures from the boys raking leaves the day before the ice hit.
And...here is today. Now that I am
Right now we have more ice than snow. They don't care. You can throw an ice ball just as good as a snow ball, apparently. They are happier than larks out there playing as freezing rain falls from the sky. And mommy and daddy are happier than larks sitting inside enjoying old people kind of things like electricity. We lazed around this morning under the covers until noon. Now that's what I'm talkin' about.
The heater is on in the bathroom and extra hot water is heating on the stove to add to the Jacuzzi for the de-frostbite-if-i-cation process when they decide to come in. And on the back burner, a tea kettle filled with the warm water for hot cocoa.
And on the agenda for tonight? A Mexican food fiesta. My mom's recipe for Chicken Enchiladas, nacho night for the boys who hate on enchiladas, and homemade salsa. Dear Lord, please let the lights stay on!!!
Now if I can just stop yodeling. We're going on a week strong of high on a hill was a lonely goat herd...this is the reason I can't buy the soundtrack. If I had it in my possession the yodeling would never end.
