An early morning text let me know that schools had a 2 hour delay this morning. Since d-in-love is still feeling sick hubbie was supposed to take g-son to school this morning. This delay came as no surprise to me as last night when I took the dogs out for their potty break before bedtime the snow was pouring down and it looked like we probably had at least 1/2 inch on the ground with a mid 20's temp.
Hubbie and I got up on our regular 8am alarm schedule and got chores done in the windy frigid temps of the morning. The sun was shining so some of the snow had already melted but what was left was pretty.

Hubbie took g-son to school and walked him in at 10:00. He said he wished school started late everyday !!
After breakfast I got weekly laundry started and then Bernie and Dolly got long over due haircuts. Out came their sweaters to replace all that long hair on this cold day.
They both actually act like they like the warmth of these sweaters !!
I did three loads of laundry while keeping the downstairs wood stove stoked all day. I rearranged some of the storage shelves downstairs while hubbie was outside working on the fire wood piles.
He shifts the wood continually around so that we are burning the oldest driest wood first.
About 3:00 I got so sleepy but I have no idea why. I sat down to have a hot cup of green tea and almost dropped the cup when I dozed off ???
Maybe its the warmth of the wood fire but I had to keep moving to avoid an afternoon nap today.
After chores we had supper of yesterday's left overs with Aa who drove through the snow to get home last night and thankfully made it safely home around 11pm.
Early to bed for me tonight to try and catch up on the sleep that I felt like I needed this afternoon.
Thankful for the blessings of this day.
God Bless and Good Night.

Your snow is so much prettier than ours. Our is all dirty from the plowing and salting. Bernie and Dolly look so cute in their sweaters. Glad Aa made it home safely. He and Re are in my daily prayers. Any word on the progress of getting custody of their nieces?
