These winter storm names are ridiculous…we didn’t really expect anything from this front moving through except for a little rain. I always expect the migraines that come and go with every low pressure cell that passes through the Arkansas River Valley, but that’s life for me. I would have named this storm Excedrin because I had to take quite a few of them this past week to keep the head buzz to a dull thud. Mother Nature laughs last.
I started out prepping wood bases on my deck for a few Etsy orders on Friday afternoon and hadn’t realized the temperature had dropped a lot! I had to come in after cutting out each board just to warm up my hands…the temp dropped to 23 by 1 pm. I came inside and base coated them, took a shower and when I came back to the kitchen, I was amazed to see everything was white outside…huge flakes coming down! And it didn’t stop until Saturday night…ending off with frozen rain and sleet.
finished painting my Etsy orders…ironic to paint neon colors on flowers when it’s gray and icy outside. My husband and I did our fair share on binging on “House of Cards – Season 3”…of course, we finished it up in one day in between cooking and painting!
we cooked some more, finally got out of our jammies and I started the big kitchen clean…like clean the toaster oven, coffee maker and inside of drawers kind of clean. Now it’s time for a nap while the boys watch boy movies! Have a good day!
