Oh, the weather outside is...

...distracting! I know it doesn't look like much to you northerners (nor does it to me--I've lived in Bavaria, so I've seen snow), but to my southern-born and raised brood, it is what they have been waiting for all winter. I could barely keep them focused on their schoolwork this morning and I was forced to finally let them out to finish up their work later on.

Twenty minutes of helping everyone pull on warm clothing, 30 minutes outdoors, then everyone will be in, shedding clothes and leaving puddles of muddy melting snow on the schoolroom floor and asking for hot cocoa. Fun for them. For me, not so much (except for 30 minutes of total quiet in the house).

Me, I am making my beef-vegetable-tortellini soup (recipe forthcoming soon) and baking bread. It is a perfect day for it in my opinion.

  1. Ooooh...snow! What a nice surprise for the kiddies! We haven't had a bit of snow yet. And I'm okay with that. I know my kids would love a little before the winter is over though.

    The soup and homemade bread sound wonderful!!
