We ran out of premix stuff the other day, so I went old school. I followed the recipe on the box of cocoa powder, and it resulted in the most divine cup of cocoa our home has ever known. It probably didn’t hurt that we added a few handfuls of white chocolate chips-you know, just in case.
Also? The Olympics. I'm trying to get into it, but I'm just not there for some reason. I anticipate a plethora of reading while my family glues their faces to the screen for the next two weeks. And I think that's okay.
The kids are off to school now, and I can’t help but look at the window at the steady snowfall. My sympathy goes out to those teachers who have antsy kids all cooped up in the classroom today. The forecast calls for more of this, and my entire family is welcoming it with open arms. Literally, because my kids stand in the road daily with faces upturned and arms wide. They look like the cast of some kind of redemption themed movie.
And now if you are any one of my parents, please enjoy these pictures of the snow in our backyard, taken from our living room window. Because I was not about to go out there. Period.
And for good measure, one of a happy (albeit freezing kiddo.)
I will never get over the monkey hat. That she's been wearing for years now.
Have a safe and warm weekend friends. I'll be here, with my face glued to the window and a donut in my hand.
