No School!

School is out tomorrow. Just look at the pictures below - this massive blizzard has us all snowed in and stuck in our homes.

I'm sure you Northerners are laughing at us. To be fair, our district is huge, and includes parts of the moutains toward the NC/SC border - and they did get 8" of snow. So that makes the whole district have to close down for the day, since busses can't run up there.

To celebrate an extra day with the girls, we made home made oatmeal cinnamon cookies tonight. They were simply delightful, and the girls loved them!


I finally have started to cataloge books that I own and have read using Goodreads. I'm forever searching for new books to read, and I figured this might help me stay organized. It is definitely a work in progress (I have a 7' bookshelve with books layered and stacked on each other). So far I've only entered about 150 books, and have many, many more to add. If you are on Goodreads, add me as a friend - I'm always interested in what others are reading!
