For two days now, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to put on the kids socks, shoes, coats, gloves, and hats. Every couple of hours, they want to go outside again and I repeat the whole process for each one. To keep it all dry, I am throwing everything into the dryer between each outing. It’s one of the downfalls to getting snow in the south; it melts as quickly as it fell. The kids know they have to soak it up while they can, hence the constant in and out.
Other than that, I am delighted to see the white stuff on the ground, even if it is mostly sleet. It’s also nice to finally feel the cold air and actually have a chill in the house worthy of my old friend, (electric heater) to warm my cold toes. This weather slows down my days too. It has been nice. And hey! It’s even inspired me to start a new knitting project. I’m stepping out of my beginners comfort zone on this one so we’ll see how it turns out.
And thankfully (Praise God!) our electricity hasn’t been disrupted. It goes on and off every few hours, but nothing permanent.
