It's Tuesday and it's the first day of February.
Ready for coffee?
School was cancelled for today last night. Last night. That is a big deal where I live. We are in town,
not a county school and I live in Central Illinois. And our district just doesn't cancel very often.
We know how to drive in snow and ice here in Illinois...well, for the most part. We're used to it.
So anyway, it's a big deal. Still keeping fingers crossed that we don't lose power through all of this though.
So this morning I am sitting on the couch, under a blanket, by the front window, drinking my coffee,
while watching the snow plow go down my street. With my whole family at home.
Yay, finally a snow day!
It's going to be a day (or two... or three) of cartoons and movies and building forts and tea parties and projects and stuff. We are all stocked up and ready for it though. Well, I think so anyway.
If we were really meeting for coffee this morning-or this afternoon, or whenever you could squeeze me in- I would tell you that this weather has most likely caused an interruption in the husband's Birthday plans this week. We need to do some more birthday shopping and errands and baking and....yeah, not sure that's all gonna happen now. Hoping we are able to get all of it done later in the week.
If not, I guess we'll be celebrating a little late.
If we were really meeting for coffee this morning I would tell you that we watched The Social Network the other night. Have you seen it? I liked it, it was good...very, very interesting. It's amazing to me that someone so young came up with this whole facebook thing...I can't even make a blog button.
I like to try and see as many of the movies nominated for Oscars as I can. I am a movie nerd like that. Pre-children I saw a lot more movies then I seem to these days, bit I still love going.
I took this picture of these flowers in manual. And it turned out. Look at that. I was so happy with this. One of my goals is to learn how to use my camera, really use my camera in manual mode. So I am slowly taking it off of the automatic setting and trying different settings.
This just reminds me that I am so ready for green grass and fresh flowers. Real flowers, from a garden.
If we were really meeting for coffee this morning I want to know how you are.
What is going on in your life lately?
And how is the weather where you are?
Well I'm out of coffee. So I think I will get going. I've got some serious crafting to start on today.
What else are you gonna do when you're snowed in?
Happy Tuesday y'all. Stay warm or safe or cool...depending on where you are I guess.
Oh, since we are having coffee and talking about coffee this morning...check out this site that is
all about coffee, coffee, coffee.
She featured one of my photos the other day. Her goal is 1,000 cups of coffee.
Go check it out and if you have a cool coffee photo you should send it to her.
Thanks for joining me for coffee this morning and have a great day!
