Brr... it's a chilly one out there this morning. When I got up at 4:30 with Dear Hubby to pack his lunch and send him off to work this morning the thermometer read -20 ~ add the windchill on top of that and we're looking at a minus 30 degree morning. That's even a bit on the frosty side for me!
Yesterday afternoon, when I went outside to fill the woodstove ... I couldn't get the front door to open. I was locked in the house. The mechanism in the door was frozen shut. Luckily, the sliding side doors by the dining room worked and I was able to go through those. After some wiggling and jiggling I finally got the front door to work. At least I was on the inside looking out and not the other way around :)
Last weekend - when we had our tropical heat wave of 20 above zero Fahrenheit I got in on some of the fun in the snow with my eldest and my youngest, Staci and Sam and two of my Grandloves, Brooke and Bailey. We went for rides in the sled behind the snowmobile through the trails in the woods.
I did some of the driving ... but more riding. The kids just giggled with excitement that I dressed up and came outside to play in the snow with them.
What the pictures don't show are the SCREAMS coming from Brooke. She was hollaring up a storm the whole time she was in that sled.
It was fun for me too ... I know there were smiles behind those masks and goggles.
It was a joy too that my baby boy Sam ... who's in his 20's ... but still my baby no matter how old he gets ... was out there being a fun and loving uncle letting Bailey drive the snowmobile for him.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
