The Blizzard of '08

by Magnolia
Are you kidding me? Now, before you go and accuse me of being Ebenezer Scrooge, I do love snow days. I love staying home with my kids, staying in our pj’s, renting movies and just being lazy. Just not today. Today I was supposed to have a party for 50 people at my house. Oh well. Let’s just have it tomorrow, right? No worries. Well I do have one worry...can marinated cheese become too marinated?

But please just look at these pictures of the “snow”. I can practically hear the Yankees laughing out loud! There is NOTHING on the streets and barely anything on the ground. What up? Is the Superintendent of Schools trying to mess with me? Have they ever heard of going 2 hours late?

As many of you know, Dolly’s “Hard Candy Christmas” has become my theme song this Christmas. So much that Little E, who is our resident songbird, is going around the house singing “maybe I’ll dye my hair…” and Junior is asking “what exactly is apple wine anyway?” I’m not quite sure myself, but today might be the day I find out!

Happy Snow Day everyone.

Magnolia, Marinated cheese will be delicious tomorrow. Save me some apple wine.

Umm, snow day? LOL!! Be careful on the streets. Remember--slow and steady. :D

Oh yeah~ I love the long-time consensus of my warm town at the first glint of frost or flurry. Seriously, the super market shelves get cleared out at the first warning. It just takes one school to close and they all fall in line here with wink and a smile. I love it too except when it gets in my way.
