where did the week go???

last weekend was a blast the kids were so excited to sleepover friday night. we had pizza for dinner and played a bean bag toss game and watched movies together until bed time. the kids finally fell asleep around 11:30pm and i finally fell asleep as well. in the morning we all went out for breakfast. then we went home and the kids explored the yard and watched tv. we also baked chocolate chip cookies. my neice helped me to mix and bake and my nephew was happy to eat them. in the afternoon my brother and sil came for an early dinner and then they all headed home. after they left and we cleaned up my boyfriend and i went to hear the band he was in play. boyfriend only wanted to go for a little while and leave early. we ended up getting home at 3 am after i dragged my boyfriend to the car. sunday was just a nice relaxing day to recover before the work week. this week flew by. wednesday's snow and ice kept me home and the break was a treat. i love snow days. i spent the whole day in my pj's and never even set foot outside.

fun in the cold

next time the temp get to zero in your area try this. boil a pot of water, take it out side and throw water into the air. you get instant frozen vapor cloud and no water. so cool. boyfriend found this online and of course we had to try it. next time i will have to take pictures so cool

is it spring yet

i am so ready for warm weather and it is only january. this week in pa we are getting an arctic blast. yuck!! the only good thing is having the fireplace lit 24-7. gotta love having an insert and being able to heat your house. we have lots of dead or old and dying trees on our property and the boyfriend is planning his use of his newest toy the chain saw. while not ready to tackle the giant trees on our land he has been tackling the smaller ones. although even that is not always easy. at least the indoors are a balmy temp if the outdoors is nearing zero. yes zero this week.

i think i'm addicted to facebook

my sil got me to join facebook i did but that was as far as i got. today i decided to poke around a bit. wow i found friends i haven't talked to in a while and even my college roommate i lost touch with years ago. now i finally understand why people love this site so much. i am having fun (much needed) catching up with old friends and even family. people i used to bump into once in a while i can now chat or leave messages anytime. now that i got it i am in trouble. i will be on there everyday. good thing it is slow at work i will have time to reconnect and revive old friendships. this is just the thing i have needed lately. i love boyfriend but i miss having friends to talk to and regret letting friendships drift away. now i will have a chance to change that.
