He gave me hydrangeas this morning.

I love hydrangeas...they are one of my favorite flowers.

Today we were supposed to get back to our normal routine..start school again.
The high temperature for today...-13 (-46 this morning with the windchill, it's warmer now...-27)
All public and private schools are closed in the area.

Our school room was dangerously cold...especially near the sliding glass doors.
{Mostly} cancelling was really the only option we had.

This gave the teacher more time to organize and plan ...she was happy.
And it's the teacher's birthday today. And the principle is home from work! (this is a gift in itself!:)

The boys are working on math.
The girls are working on art.

Jeff said because it's my birthday we can do whatever I want today.
My definition of "whatever I want today" and his are not one in the same.
I found this out when I suggested we open up a doorway and knock out a wall this afternoon.

My construction company owning/building/remodeling husband became negative...
...talking about needing material and taking out duct work and moving electrical wiring...
He always makes everything into such a big deal.

I mean, sledge hammer a little, you sawzall a little, you shop vac a little...
Bingo! Project complete.
I'll just settle for a game of Scrabble.  ;)

Hope your week is off to a great start.
And if you live in the midwest...stay warm!

Happy Monday.

  2. I'm laughing! You are so cute and funny! :)

    But BRRR that is cold!! It's below freezing here all day in the south, and everyone here just can't believe it. It almost always goes up to 50 degrees! :)

    I like your snow day at home. And especially since it was your birthday too! How fun you could all be together. That sounds so perfect.

  3. Happy belated Birthday! Your temps make me feel warm (almost!). We had a high of 6 on Monday and Saturday is supposed to be near 60! Yay! I am not a cold weather loving girl.

  4. yes, when they say you can do "whatever" you want that whatever is very questionable - especially if it involves a hammer for them!! ;))

    happy birthday again here. pretty flowers and hope your day was fun filled and you were loved on good.

  19. I can't consider all the things we get side tracked about
    in our lives makes a difference. On a regular basis put in taking into consideration the different
    things that we deal with every single and every moment is
    undoubtedly really important, as no other woman will probably deal with existence for any of us.
    I feel that citizens need to be more mentally stable. Knowledge is marvelous, but so much of whatever you think about is
    indeed abstract. Having a cup of coffee is a zen activity
    that takes one back to the present moment in time. We must become more in the here and now, without being overcome
    by our lifestyle and the theatre we deal with each day.
