Two Snow Days for the Teacher.... A Seasonal Thing

Ok, you gotta know the teacher loves the snow days as much as the kids. Got the call at 5:30 am, but the dogs had already gotten me up at  5:00 am, the usual time to go outside and then  eat. So, after two cups of wonderful vanilla caramel coffee, and two hours on the computer, we were all ready to go back to bed. The dogs sleep on this old loveseat and keep one eye on me while I am on the computer.

As soon as I said, "Let's go back to bed," they were ready. I like agreeable companions. In order left to right, Tilly, Oscar, and Roxy.
I stayed in my pj's until 2:00 pm! But I did get a lot done. I played wtih dishes and made a list of what I need for some different table settings. I did lots of  laundry AND put it away. (yes I did, Mama)

The only reason I got dressed was because, I must admit, I have a hard tiime staying home all day in the winter. I think it is something about not supposed to be out on the streets, and I just have to get out and try it. But first a walk around the back yard.

In the summer when I can work in the yard all day, I don't leave the place for a couple of days at a time. Oh, summer......  

So, after getting dressed, I drove over to Mama's house, and filled her bird feeders for her. Then I went to BB&B, Pier One, and Michael's, as they are all lined up in a row. I didn't buy a thing! Oh, well, I tried.

Today is ANOTHER snow day.... really? Up at the usual 5:00 am, etc. Checked the library online to see if any books I am waiting on are in yet, of course not.  I have some good cranberry orange bread just out of  the breadmaker, smelling good.

A walk outside to see if there is anything new.

Looks like we got about 8-9 inches of snow total.

Tilly's path is about covered over.

I have already called a teacher friend to see if we should go to an antique store today. I could scrub floors, clean the basement, or something else boring...... naaaahhhh.

My, I remember those snow days! Now we have hurricane days, weird, huh? I hope you have good luck at the antique store. Your hutch (below) is beautiful. I really like the tray behind the milkglass ;). Hugs, Kim

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comments! I'm loving your blog. We're snowed in as well.

Have a great week!

Oh, what a fun day, and your companions are all ADORABLE! Are they chihuahuas or toy fox terriers? We lost our two girls a few years back, and I looked at two chihuahuas yesterday. They were SO cute, and I keep thinking about them. My husband is out of town, and I didn't think I could spring two new dogs on him when he returns. LOL! But I'm SO tempted!

Stay warm and have a Happy Outdoor Wed!

I love the snow, but I'm not sure I'm the type that can LIVE in it. Where I live, was 80 degrees on the soccer field yesterday.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Stay warm.

Sounds like the perfect snow day! I love that your furry friends happily followed you back to bed. Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

Pat, I had to come back and look at those pups. They are SO cute and of course, not a bit spoiled. ;-)

I don't get too many snow days, so some days I just pretend. That means lighting a fire, staying in my jammies, reading a good book and sipping hot chocolate and hoping the phone doesn't ring!
