winter stuff

We got hit with a snow storm all day yesterday. Got about a foot of snow.  Haven't had much of any snow this winter. Last year it seemed like every other day we were cleaning up snow, lots of snow. It's been nice this year to have a break from all that white stuff. So this morning we had to dig ourselves out! I milked while My Man plowed. I decided not to lug water out until there was a path for me to walk in! The kiddos were excited to have enough snow to make some tall snowbanks to make snow forts and slide down. I see a visit to my parents soon to get some sledding and snow boarding done. They have an awesome hill! Although it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow. Gonna make a mess. So we shall see.
This has been a very busy week for us. Sunday we went to my in laws, Monday we went to my BIL and SIL for supper. Matthew helped with the addition they are putting on their house while I got to visit! Tuesday was my in laws anniversary and FIL birthday, had a family party, Wednesday was the day that wouldn't end for me. Started around 7 am, although my body thinks it's time for the time change and my eyes popped open around 6ish. I didn't get up, and I didn't sleep either. Hate when that happens. Then I did all the chores while my husband went to get hay. We can't store all of it here because we don't have a place to keep it. He wanted to get extra with the storms there were supposed to come (and did). One of the kiddos had a Dr's appointment, did some more shopping, got home, cleaned up the mess from the morning I didn't have time to do before I left. The girls were a huge help with the house work. They helped me the rest of the afternoon cleaning. My boy was off working with Daddy for the day. Started supper, had to stop, go pick up my boy at Cub Scouts, back at home, finished supper, went and did chores because Matthew wasn't going to be home in time, then had company over for supper. Fell into bed around 10:30 that night. Days like that don't happen very often:-) Thursday it snowed all day. The wind was terrible, and I wished the animals would feed, water and milk themselves. But since they don't we did the work together! I was glad for an early night too. We were home in the evening together and we had a game night of it. All warm and toasty in the house while the snow and wind whirled around outside. I have no idea what tonight will bring! But I did just realize I forgot to put supper in the slow cooker and will not be done even if I did try! Drat! Guess I better go and think of something else to eat tonight!!
A few pics of this morning! Never mind the date on there. Just noticed it's wrong, guess I should change that!

Me milking.

My Man on the tractor! Love watching him! 

My boy waiting for the snow bank to get bigger!!
Happy Friday all!

  1. Wow, what a week! Looks like the kids were having fun in the snow! I hate when I forget to get the slow cooker going or defrost something for dinner and have to punt! ;-)
