Snow weekend


We had snow this weekend and I am so happy that hubby was home to drive me back and forth to work. I only work 2-3 days a week and it seems the snow always arrives when I'm due for work. I wish for a nice snow to come when I know I'm off work for a few days and can stay home and enjoy it.... a big pot of soup, blankets on the couch, books, movies, staying in PJ's all day.... what a dream! Instead, it was dragging out in the snow... working at the nursing home.... short staffed.... but actually kind of fun this past weekend. Everything was pretty quiet.... very few visitors.... the residents enjoyed the snow and a few even put in requests for snowmen to be built outside their windows. Some of the staff tried to accomodate them, but the snow was too powdery to make a snowman. Maybe later in the week, they will get their snowmen built.

Hi Penny, this snow came on the weekend so I was off work. I'm staying home today, even though the roads are probably ok. There are some icy spots and my yard is a sheet of ice. I think it qualifies as a sick day since I'm mentally off when it comes to driving! I love to be home in the snow doing all the things you mentioned.

Sorry it fell on your work days.
How sweet to make snowmen for the people. Hope they can do it at some point. I admire people who work in nursing homes. It hard work. God Bless you. Hope you get a PJ day soon!
