Here we go again.
Obviously, the company that supplies the oil which we burn in our furnace is involved in the conspiracy to keep spring away.
Last week was all hustle and bustle. We had company coming, and I had cleaning and cooking to do. You know the kind of cleaning that you put off doing until you are expecting visitors, and then you panic.
Yeah, that kind of cleaning.
I didn’t find even a minute for sewing, jewelry making or any kind of creative endeavors.
Today, we are turning it down a notch, Mr. Cottage and I are enjoying a snow day together.
Mr. Cottage is the breakfast chef in our house. This morning he made us Irish waffles.
Bisquick brand gluten-free waffles, which the chef adds a splash of vanilla and a dash of cinnamon, and this morning a drop of green food coloring for fun.
The snow feels welcome after a weekend filled with high winds, and low humidity. Amazingly with all the snow, and ice we have had, our area was issued a fire warning. We heard sirens all weekend, fire trucks blaring past, and the forestry bulldozers rumbled down the road. It has been about 17 years since Mr. Cottage worked for the Virginia Department of Forestry, yet when one of the employees drive by they still throw up a hand or toot a hello honk. We are saddened there have been so many fires around us, and thankful for those on the job.
I hope you have the luck of the Irish on your side on this St. Patrick’s Day!
I’ve had a dream for as long as I can remember, of someday going to Ireland.
Four days until the calendar says spring!
See you later, Bye!
