The children were supposed to go back to school on Monday as was the Engineer. Here it is Tuesday and everyone is still home. No one is sick. We are just having very wintery weather. Monday was a snow day. We had lots of snow and blowing snow. It made the roads very unsafe for driving, which means the buses don't run, which means, the kids don't have school. It often also means that even if we wanted to, we can't get out of our lane. That was the case yesterday and today, for the Engineer. Today though, the children are home because this is southern Canada and in southern Canada people don't know how to dress for -25 Celsius weather or - 37 if you take into account the wind chill. We're in the midst of what the weather world calls a polar vortex. Even though we had the laneway plowed yesterday, it filled in again just enough overnight that the van got stuck this morning. So, everyone is home for yet another day.
I'm not complaining though. We have had a very wonderful holiday. Puzzles, board games, all day pajama days, hot chocolate, snow fort building, sledding, book reading, movie nights, lots of sleeping late, slow lazy days.
I've been in my craft room off and on the last few days. Soon I will post some photos of what I have been doing. A lot of it is finishing up unfinished projects that have been laying around for years. Yes, some of them have been waiting to be finished for a few years. I will post a bunch in the next few days or so.
Stay warm everyone! Blessings!
