It's Snowing Again!

It never fails. My husband travels for business and we get a snow storm. To be fair, we've had more than one storm while he's been home, but there have been at least 4 or 5 times this winter that I've been dealing with the snow alone. It makes me crazy.

Anyways, we made it to and back from basketball, gymnastics, and the supermarket, so we can all hunker down for the evening. Kids' baths are on the agenda, and after that I might either 1) start house-cleaning for the social worker visit we have on Tuesday afternoon (our first post-placement report for China) or 2) start the rag quilt I've been planning for an auction donation. Here's the material (upside down!):

The "little piggies" will be the top, the blue flannelnette the backing, and the cream flanellnette will be the filling. It will be a simple quilt, but I think it might fetch a few dollars for the playground equipment at preschool if it turns out halfway decent. Oh, heck, the housecleaning can always wait!!

Those are the dogs at the patio door a few minutes ago, after a very quick trip to the backyard. When they don't want to stay out, you know it's nasty!

Here's hoping there's better weather somewhere....

I feel for ya girl! It has been like spring here, playing soccer outside in February in the sunshine, what a treat. Well, today it sprinkled a bit but then stopped and the sun came out we saw sun most of the week and it has filled my head with thoughts of spring. Little buds are already appearing on the trees and the crocuses are pocking out...Yippeee!

I am soooo done with this winter too! We have been treated to a few days of beautiful sunshine, but then it's supposed to go back down to -13 by Wednesday. Ugh!

Can't wait to see the quilt. I love a good excuse to avoid the housework!

We have another storm on the way too. Hang in there! And I think the quilt will be darling.
