This morning I need to finish my homework (taking sign lnaguage interpreting classes) for class tonight and clean my kitchen. Yesterday everyone was going somewhere different at different times so food was cooked and kept warm most of the evening. When I got home after 9pm just put leftovers in fridge and went to bed.

DH bought a whole rib-eye yesterday for $5.99 a lb. and he's getting ready to cut it up into steaks for the freezer. Chloe dog is standing by for scraps.

I was on my feet quite a bit yesterday...got my hair done, went to the store and out to lunch with Kim...and am pretty sore, so I'm spending the day in my rocking chair with my PC.

Hip, hip, hooray! The sun is out!! Haven't seen it in so long I was wondering what that shiny thing in the sky was this morning when I got up. Even though it's sunny, it's cold. Only about 25 degrees. The high is supposed to reach about mid 30s. Tomorrow a bit warmer.

Poor outside kitties. Their water bowl was one big ice chunk. They were thankful for fresh water. I'll probably have to stir it several times today to keep it from getting solid all over again.

It'll be quiet here today. I decided to put my oven on "clean" cycle this morning. It hadn't been cleaned since just before Thanksgiving and after a couple of turkeys and some other roasted goodies, it needed it. A good thing to do on a day that's so cold. Warms up the kitchen a bit.

I need to give some organizing attention to my desk. It's beginning to look a bit dysfunctional. Not good...for me. I prefer to be organized. I also need to search for a nice container to use for a floral arrangement I'm making for my MIL for her birthday. She'll be 93 on the 29th and she's very challenging to buy for. She always likes the arrangements I make for her so I thought some pretty flowers would be cheerful during this goopy, gloomy season. I have the flowers, just need a container.

Mainly just staying warm today. That'll be the biggest job.

We're taking it easy today. Aidan is sick, I think he has croup but he's not as bad as last night. He isn't lethargic but is having a hard time sitting still to get some rest.

I've a productive day so far though. I've been super cleaning the kitchen. I need to give myself a pat on the back. Super cleaned the stove (I took off all the elements and drip pans are soaking), scrubbed all the cabinets, cleaned out and am in the process of washing the refridgerator, bleached the sink, and scrubbed the floorboards.

Hopefully the kids will stay in good spirits for the rest of the day.

Thanks everyone! I did manage to find the energy to precut the veggies for a stirfry I'm making tonight. LEFSElover had me wanting meatloaf but no ground beef to be found in the refrigerator. Its freezing cold outside. I noticed the ice on the gutterd downspot when I got home from picking our little one up from school. Sure will be nice when spring comes.

Both boys are asleep, can you believe it?!
Of course, this might mess up bedtime but who knows.
I'm making myself some tea to enjoy the peace but as soon as it's ready, one of those boys will probably wake up. lol.
