I'm happy just reading about it!
I've always loved the little house books. As a child I spent countless hours in my dress and bonnet and I even had a nightcap imitating scenes from those great books. And I enjoyed reading about the Christmas snowstorm in "Little House on the Prairie". I enjoyed "The Long Winter" but I am no longer 10 and I can enjoy a good book without having to live it out. When I opened my back door a few minutes ago to let my poor short little puppy out to go pee (I cleared a small spot for her and told her she could go on the porch) I thought of those two things. Really, I'm ok with just reading about it. Wouldnt it be wonderful if I coudl just curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and read those today? Nope, decided I'm gonna get my house clean and if I get enough done, maybe naptime tomorrow. Although in all honesty I've probably read them enough times I coudl just think about them and replay the entire books in my head. So for those of you keeping track, our snow is currently coming down fast enough to turn a gray schnauzer compeletely white in under a minute and is at a depth of belly heigh to a schnauzer. I've been takign hourly pictures I'll post them whenever this whole mess is over and my hubby is safely home!
