I LOVE MY NEW SKI PANTS!! My sweet family knows that I do not care about fashion but boy I sure do love being warm when I am in and out all night long checking on my sweet one's and becoming a wet snow women.... So my wonderful new ski pants got their first test as I walked through the driving snow to get the barn doors closed for the night. After walking to all the pastures to check on everyone I came into the shop as warm and dry as I started out as - Way To Go !! Thanks Family
Next, when I came upstairs the dinner I started was ready and boy did it smell great. Spiral Cut Ham, Scalloped Potatoes, Cranberry Fluff, Hot Rolls from my DIL and finished the dinner off with Butter Cookies and hot Spiced Tea... A great way to get the energy to go back outside in about three hours to check on everyone again.
Then there is that I still have power!! I know most folks do not think about that but it is a common issue out here during storms - I am typing quickly just in case. I put away all the leftovers, did the dishes, folded the clothes and put them away... Then I made sure nothing was in the walking path through out the house so just in case we have no lights there will be no Graceful falls. Dry clothes are set out for the next animal check and a fresh pot of hot water has refilled the thermos. Most of all I am getting to watch my new Flat Screen TV that my loving family gave me for Christmas. I love it because I can move it around the house without breaking my back. You see my other TV is the size of a small vehicle having to use that special box just to see normal programs. Since I do not have cable I watch mostly movies but with this I can see my special shows like tonight I am watching BONES upstairs - I know it does not sound like much to most but it is thrilling to me...
So now that you know mine what are your pleasures during a storm???
