This is more like it...

... it finally feels like winter.

It's been snowing since early this morning, and we're getting a pretty good covering of white. We may have as much as 8 - 10" by the time the snow stops tomorrow.

Brighty... snow covered because he refuses to go into the barn!


Things are slowly getting back to normal after the accident. R and I are still achy, and our backs are very touchy, but I think it will just take time for the soreness to go away...

We bought a car to replace our old Sedona on Friday. After looking at everything within 100 miles of us that was in our price range, we finally found a car about 90 miles north of us. It's another Sedona, same year as the old one, but red this time instead of green. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles our old car had, but it seems to be a decent car, has low miles, and was in our price range. I'm so glad we found it and got it home before the snow started!

  (it looks better without the snow! ;)

Today was a nice quiet day. I cleaned house this morning, and this afternoon we played Monopoly (the Irish edition :) ) and made necessity bags for the homeless to restock the car so we'll be ready the next time to go to Denver.

(We no longer make the huge number of bags we used to... We started changing the contents slightly depending on the season, so now we just make a dozen or so at a time so they don't last too long.)

It looks like we'll be snowed in for awhile, but that's fine... in fact, that's wonderful. I can think of nothing I'd like better than to be snowed in, get lots of school done, and enjoy just being home and together...

Stay warm!
