These shadows on the snow in our back yard intrigued me. I felt compelled to capture them.
I can't believe that February is almost over! Winter hit full force after our weirdly warm January. We had several -15 to -20F nights. We have also made up for the lack of snowfall and have over 2 ft on the ground.
I guess I've skipped the winter doldrums associated with this month by staying busy. I feel rejuvenated after tackling some cleaning and organizational chores I've been avoiding.
I've managed to clear the clutter in our bedroom and den. I even made dresser scarves from the material I bought 6 months ago. The den is now an organized area for Z to study in, complete with a new computer monitor that doesn't fade out every few minutes. I also sorted and filed Z's completed assignments. I still need to file the future assignments that I have prepared, but who wants to be too organized?
L and I thoroughly cleaned the fridge and the oven. The guys have even been making an effort at keeping their clutter off the kitchen counters. Z has been picking up after himself in the living room, but his room is worse than ever. I guess his room will be our first March project.
I read The Chronicles of Narnia, and enjoyed them much more than I could have in grade school.
I re-started my search for L's adopted brother. I'm actually getting somewhere this time. I'll keep you posted if my search is successful.
Last fall I had my boss' contractor figure an estimate for a GARAGE. He finally gave me the figures last week. The figures are well within our expectations, so we're on their construction list for this summer. Now I have to get a building permit. Hopefully we won't need a variance.
Z and L have been cooking one dinner, every weekend this month. Since they can't always agree on what to cook, they have decided to cook dinner on BOTH Saturday and Sunday nights. That way they each get to choose a menu. YES!!
Hopefully, our ambition will continue through March!
