Snow day


Just another picture from my back yard; sorry!

We had a snow storm last Thursday and Friday which left us with 7.8 inches of snow.  That is the largest November snowfall recorded in Boise since they began keeping records in 1892!  It gave the kids a day off from school on Friday, and gave me a nice opportunity to rest.  I even got to take a nap in the afternoon, a rare treat.  

The picture was taken before the majority of the snow fell.  I have some from after which I'll try to share later.  Everything was fully blanketed in white.

I remain extremely busy, but it promises to slow down soon.  My friend has found an apartment which she will be moving into this weekend.  We are scheduled to complete the purchase of our new home next week.  We've decided to go to a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner in order to alleviate the pressure of preparing the feast.  It will likely just be my immediate family.  My brother who lives in town recently became a grandfather and since 2 of his children are married it makes sense that they have their own expanding family to entertain. My Dad recently drove his friend to Arizona and it's unclear whether he'll be back in time for Thanksgiving. For his sake I hope he stays in the warmth of Arizona!

Stay warm!

Beautiful shot. Cuddle up, and my kids are extremely jealous of your lovely snow. I don't mind the view from here. :)
