We are on our third day of being snowed/iced in, and if you know me, I am loving it! I was quite surprised to get out on Thursday; I figured we would have go in for a few hours, and then they would close as the weather got bad. Imagine my surprise when I woke up to a text from my boss that we were closed!
So I went back to sleep for an hour. I have a hard time sleeping in when I know we are having winter weather because I want to watch it and measure it and touch it and walk it. Oh, I so LOVE it. Once I got up, I started editing photos, cleaning, and catching up on TV shows. The sleet started early but didn't really start accumulating until mid-morning. Once Zach got up, he played video games while I continued my cleaning. We drank lots of hot cocoa and tea, watched the snow begin to fall, and played & snuggled with the kitties. In the evening, Zach built a fire, which was lovely. Here's how we spent our "snow days:"
sleet starting to collect on everything
The cats enjoyed having us home!
This is probably the coldest it's been in Arkansas since I don't know when!
It's a tradition for me to drink out of my snowflake mug on snow days. :)
night fall, snow fall
When I got up on Friday, we had EIGHT inches! It's now over nine. :) I wasn't sure if my guess was correct (eight inches), but I was right on the money when this photos as taken!
On Friday, I watched Christmas movies and prepared for our late Fall Feast. And, of course, watched the snow continue to fall!
Since we moved up here, I've used these birds to measure the snow.
They have been quite snuggly with the cold weather.
Yes, I know, we
make beautiful children raise beautiful cats.

I love our home in this kind of weather. it reminds me a cabin! Also, those bows used to hang in our stairwell during Christmas, but Dinah tore them up pretty good last year, so I shortened the tails and decided to use them one last year--outside.
Selfies in the snow are hard, especially when it is well below freezing.
why we named our home The Owlery
Our landlord's little lady statue looks like a gnome in the snow!
It's hard to see here, but there are some animal tracks in the snow. Deer, maybe?
Last night, we had our Fall Feast, and I invited Amy over since she made it safely back home from her friends' house. But I'll tell you more about this on Monday!
