Up and out in the 20 degree morning. At least the wind has died and the temps didn't get quite as cold as the predictions.
After breakfast I baked 2 chocolate and 2 pound cakes for orders. With the weather predictions moderating at bit for in the morning, market may be better than I expected but I'm not going to go crazy baking because I don't want a bunch of left overs with the snowfall that might come next week and cause market to close.
I collected all the things I bought for the Valentine party in g-son's classroom today and headed over to school at 12:30.
I met up with the other grandmother that was helping and I got the party set up while she ran home for added supplies while the kids were at lunch.
There was no shortage of sweets.
When they returned from lunch they were all happily surprised. We played a game then they got to eat their goodies. Then all the students got to hand out the Valentines they had brought for their classmates and teachers. G-son gives the teacher's assistant a valentine.
I came home after 2:00 and had some lunch then went to make a cake delivery for an early Valentine party tonight.
The temperature of the day made it into the low 40's which felt nice in the sunshine.
Tonight is supposed to be around 20 again without wind but as I look at the 25 degree temp at 10:30 I think it will be closer to mid teens for lows tonight.
The really cold and high wind isn't suppose to get here until tomorrow evening now .
The long range forecast looks like we could be set for our first big snowfall of the season as moisture from the gulf runs into the cold temps next week.
Where the snow line will be and how much snow will fall is still up in the air but it looks like next week could be very very interesting !!!
Tonight after chores I iced my cakes and blogged so I can get to bed a little earlier tonight.
Bringing to an end the first of three "Friday the thirteenths" in this year. Three is the most any year has ever had. I was reading a news story about how the bad luck idea of Friday the thirteenth got started and one of the beliefs is that it was because there were 13 people at the Last Supper, Jesus and his 12 apostles and Jesus was crucified on Friday so the number and the day have been linked ever since.
Anyway in another 1 1/2 hours this first Friday the 13th will be part of the history of this year for me and my family and so far all is well.
I thank God for this wonderful day for me and the blessing of being able to see g-son in his school class so happy and healthy. I am prayerfully grateful for my health and the opportunities that it gives me.
Good Night and God Bless.
