Currently February

Oh Boy! It's February! I'm linking with Farley to stop for a minute and take a pulse on life.



We have had almost 24 hours of snowfall, and it's not supposed to taper off until tomorrow morning. Everybody is clearing it away every few inches so the task is doable.

Got notice just a bit ago that we don't have school tomorrow. How do you spell teacher happiness:
S-N-O-W  D-A-Y!

I found the cutest heart garland to make for Valentine's Day. You use only the heart suit from a couple decks of cards. I bought cheap cards at Dollar Tree and Valentine ribbon at Target's Dollar Spot a while back, so maybe the snow day is the excuse to make it. I think it will look festive hanging from the mantle with some little lights. You can see it here.

Okay, like the rest of the world I'm following up on New Years Resolutions to eat better and exercise more. Sort of getting sick of the same old food choices though. I have sugar snap peas to use up so I think I'll stir fry them as a vegetable side dish.  And my doctor and physical therapist have recommended a recumbent stationary bike to use for strength training and cardio even with my bum knee. My PT cinched my decision to buy it when she said the best thing about it was that you can multi task while you ride, and hence people use them more than other pieces of equipment. Should have it up and going by next weekend. Yippee.

Not going out in this mess of snow, so tomorrow I'm going to plan as much for next week as I can from home. And, yes, the age old issue of taxes. "Ugh" about sums it up.

This post is as close as I'll ever get to a pageant, so I guess I'll chose Ms. Multi-Task. I ALWAYS have multiple "stuffs" going on. It's both a blessing and a curse.  sigh.

  1. Oh I am jealous of your snow day! As long as you do not have to make it up. Enjoy the day off. How do you make your heart garland?

    1. We have six days built in each year for snow days. This will be day three, so we're all good. You can bet we count them though. We go until mid-June and no one wants to go later... though it is not exactly in our control :) Check my Seasonal Pin Board for the garland. There are several. The one I'm doing is with the playing cards. I made a link on this post. Thanks for stopping by. Kathleen

  7. Hi Kathleen,
    Snow days are the best! I used to call my sister when she was working as an electrical engineer in Texas and sing her my snow day song every time I had one while teaching in Virginia. It always made her laugh. I hear you about getting tired of the same old recipes. I feel the same way sometimes. Have you discovered 100daysofrealfood.com? It's one of my faves. I can let you know some of the recipes on there I've tried that are really good. Gosh, that reminds me. I need to get cracking on my taxes too! Luckily we have a guy who does them for us. Just have to gather everything, scan it in, and email it off to him. Then the follow-up phone calls. Ugh too!
    Happy snow day!
    Joya :)

    1. WHAT is your snow day song?? :) I will absolutely check out that recipe site, as no I haven't heard of it before. And yes, do tell your favs! As to taxes, we are under an earlier deadline as we have to fill out the FAFSA for our kids in college. I will be SO happy when we don't have to do that anymore. See ya later. Kathleen

  8. What I wouldn't give for a snow day...except that I don't want to have to shovel it...lol. I guess I just really want an extra day off to get stuff done. I have found some good, healthy recipes on Pinterest. The card garland is super cute. Love your pageant title! Have a great week!

    1. Yep, cooking up new recipes is a favorite activity on a snow day. It put me into a cooking mood and I made ratatouille yesterday- mmm, love it. Thanks for stopping by. Kathleen
