It's Snowing Again, But I Have a Plan

Once again it is snowing outside.  I don't think it is going to be one of those great snows that you actually enjoy by going out to sled and throwing snowballs.  However, I could be wrong.  I didn't take the weather man very seriously this time.  Last time he said at least a foot of snow would hit, and we didn't even get enough snow to cover the ground.  I bought enough milk to last a whole week just in case.  Instead of playing in the snow we sat around drinking milk and playing cards.  This time I didn't even buy extra milk.  We are down to our last two gallons.  That means we have enough milk to last about a day and a breakfast  so we will probably be stranded out here for at least a week.  That is just the way it usually goes, but as long as  I have cream for my coffee I am good. 

I have tried for the last two days to get out in the shop to plant my seeds.  I have to get this done, and it just seems that there is always something more pressing that captures my attention.  Today my plan it to assign all the kids cleaning jobs upstairs.  That will free me up, and I will take one eager helper, and it will not be the 5 year old, to help me in the shop.  I am sure this will not line up with the snow day/school's out children's mentality.  But I am the mom and it is my plan and it will work if I can get them out of bed!!!

grace and peace,

LOL! Things always go according to "our" plans, don't they. I had just had to chuckle about that. We had a heaping amount of snow since last weekend. I think I'm ready for Spring now.

Joyful Blessings,
