my day in numbers

1 cup of coffee, 1 bowl of oatmeal, and 6 pieces of toast

2 lunches and snacks made and packed.

2 loads of laundry

shoveling the 4 inches of snow that fell last night


1 long driveway!


8 hearts hanging pretty


4 dozen lemon cookies for church open table

2 hours spent setting up dinner for 60


1 Chai latte

getting ready for a party for 30 of our favorite neighbors.

14 games of Go-Fish

bath, books and bedtime for 2 tired kids.

***this was a post i wrote last week….where did last week go????!!! thank goodness January is done….but i am a little bit afraid of February…you see…its snowing and they described this storm as a BLOCKBUSTER…yikes.  A 2 day storm that will leave 20 inches of snow and ice!

i really need to catch you up on a lot of things…..but first i need to catch up on this laundry.

It snowed here in Texas last night. Can't imagine this as a reality in winter! Those cookies look so good!

Wow...you do have a long driveway!
We are having another snow day here...it's starting to get old real quick!
Love your hanging hearts!
30 neighbors over...sounds fun!

you shovel that driveway by hand? You must really be getting in shape with all the snow you guys have gotten! We are getting pummeled right now. But we haven't had much snow, so it is actually fun for us:)

Kim said...

Do you shovel your own driveway?!?! No snow blower or plow? WOW! That is a TON of work!

Stay warm and cozy inside. I can't believe the amounts of snowfall going on this year. CrAzY!
