This is just going to be a quick post to say "hello" and to let you see what northern living in April is like...
Isn't it lovely?...
What began as a serene snow storm has upgraded to a blizzard and we are snowed in!
Snow drifts as high as our fence, oh my!
The poor birds must be so thankful for Micah, who keeps their feeders well-stocked in weather like this...
Old man Winter is pitching one of his temper tantrums again. He hates to let Spring have her way.
But we won't let him get the best of us, right?!
Come on inside where it's warm and cozy... I have tea...
You may remember from one of my past posts that we were given a new barn cat recently.
Well, we brought her inside for the storm.
I just couldn't bear the thought of her suffering out in the cold.
She's been getting properly spoiled here in the house...
And trying out all the soft, cozy napping spots...
She's been a very good girl, so I don't mind.
I have put to good use these snowed-in days...
Using it as a chance to sort through games, toys, and books...
Purging what we no longer need, and tidying what we wish to keep...
It sure feels great to get organized!
It's like a fresh, new start!
I can get so absorbed in my little projects, that I don't even notice what's going on outside.
And before I know it, it'll all be over and I'll be expected to leave my house again.
(Being snowed in is an introverted homebody's dream life! Haha!)
I found out the other day that we are expecting overnight company in the very close future.
They will be with us for two weeks!
I have much to do to get ready for their arrival, as I'm sure you can imagine.
I don't know when I'll be able to blog again, since I still have to keep the homeschool and housework plates spinning, plus our family room project is still not complete. I really wish to make their stay with us as comfortable as I can, so I'll be busy as a bee with that!
(Any advice you can give me for hosting long-term company, I would greatly appreciate!)
So anyway friends, wish me luck, and say a prayer for me. I will need it! Also, feel free to leave a comment. I LOVE hearing from you! Your comments make blogging much more fun!
