And, just like that we are halfway through February! I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and others here today! As I am typing this on Sunday late afternoon, we are expecting an overnight snow of 1-3 inches and then a break and another 4-8 inches before the end of today. We shall see. But, winter, I am over you! What good is the snow if it doesn’t lead to a snow day anymore? Ha! I am a little bit bitter!
But, what I am not bitter about is…
Our boys have been home all week with the exception of a Friday class for Jack! They had no classes on Wednesday of last week, then Thursday they had classes cancelled for the weather. Mason has zero classes on Friday!
Here is Jack playing one of our many instruments!
I was off on Friday and lit my winter candle, drank my coffee, and stayed in my pjs until noon! This is not normal for me, even on the weekends.
A morning chat with Mason! We all fight over this chair, including Ernie. I start my day in this chair and then I let others use it – ha!
I made perfect pancakes one day for my crew! I use the Heart Healthy Bisquick and then I have an electric non-stick skillet that makes perfect pancakes and grilled cheese sandwiches. I keep in in the box in a spare closet when I don’t use it because it is big!
And, I made Jack a perfect grilled cheese one day.
Oops, he caught me!
Ernie loved having them home, too.
Tom’s company gave him a Christmas gift card for anything in a gift catalog. He gave it to me and I ordered a cappuccino maker with a frother. I had fun learning how to use it Saturday morning!
I also picked up a heart shaped tray of chicken minis Saturday morning. I met a friend at Trader Joe’s to try to show her the ropes and CFA was close by so I thought why not?
Saturday night we had salmon, shrimp, green beans, mashed potatoes, and bread made by me.
I still haven’t finished my second attempted book of 2021 but I picked this up on Saturday and started it. It involves Nantucket, a restaurant, and three sisters.
For my Sunday Valentine’s activity, my Valentine took me to Homegoods.
These two Rae Dunn mugs were next to each other on the shelf so I had to get them. Her mugs are huge!
These are my boys’ first names.
I also picked up cotton candy for a champagne drink! And, I have been thinking about this tea and found it for like a third of the price, and the cute napkins will be part of my March decor which I plan to do today.
I made a pot of chili for chili for dinner to be served with a grilled cheese with a heart on top! It is so cold that a simple meal sounded good. We don’t like to go out on major holidays anyway but hopefully we will go out sometime soon.
We did cards. Tom almost always makes mine. He chose a template that can’t even spell Valentine correctly so I had fun with that!
As usual, it went by entirely too fast!
I have virtual parent teacher conferences today and hopefully I will have some time to dedicate to planning and making some class handouts. I’m sure I will be looking out the window to see what snow comes our way, too.
How was your weekend? Any highlights?
Thanks for reading!
