Project 365 ~ Week 4

Well as weeks go this one was about half and half. Because of the MLK holiday that kids did not go back to school until Tuesday. I was very glad to see the buses roll again. The snow finally began to melt and by Thursday it was all gone, by Saturday it was business as usual, that is until the next predicted snow which may be in the forecast for next week. But I am optimistic that we may have weather our worst, let hope so anyway!

So HERE we go!

A little bit of sunshine make all the difference in the world!

What does it look like when you have been out of school for eight consecutive days?

This! She was taking full advantage of her last day off with the already schedule MLK holiday, the dog was taking full advantage of the situation as well!

With the snow from last week beginning to melt away I was super busy on Tuesday and Wednesday. We had to cancel our weekly Disciple One class last week so it was double duty for all involved. I had to figure out a way to condense two weeks of bible study into one extended session. We managed to cram 5 hours worth of study into three jammed packed hours. As I walked out to the car on Wednesday afternoon my head was swimming and I felt a bit like I had been run over by a semi truck carrying a load of bibles.

I have to brag a bit. The DD is such a good student. She missed being in the top 100 by only 12 points at her school. She has set herself a goal to try and move up in the ranks over this next semester. I very rarely have to tell her to work on her homework, she comes home most afternoons and sets herself up at the counter in the kitchen and works her little fingers to the bone…well not really but she at least does it without having to be asked. For that I am very thankful!

When things finally began to thaw last week Skoots1mom and I went to Goodwill. I could not help myself when I saw this sweet little white porcelain pitcher for only three something dollars. The handle was a bit cracked but after an application of super glue it was fixed right up. I am not tablescape obsessed like Sandra Lee but I do like to set my table for what ever meal we are having. For years it has bothered me to set my 1.99 plastic pitcher on the table to serve my orange juice. Well not any more. This sweet little pitcher now has a home in my kitchen, I love setting it on the table and it even matches my dishes!

Well if it has to be cold and dreary outside the least we can do is enjoy a small bit of sunshine. I had never tired Clementine's until a few years ago. I will admit that they are a bit pricy but if you can afford them they are with every sweet penny!

It makes you forget all about the frigid temperatures while you are enjoying the sweet little sections. These were on sale at the Ingles so I picked up a box. I am not sure why they package them in bulk like this but I have never seen them sold by the pound where you could just buy a few. But they are so small and sweet and wonderful well I just scooped up the box and placed it in my cart. I have already had three since I came home from the store. This box was very good!

I just love them!

Well that’s it for me this week.

For more P365 y’all head over to Sara’s and link up!

Living in the west, we don't see any snow days..I do miss that (coming from MI) but i do not miss the cold! Too funny about the snow in your yard vs the snow across the street! And I would take full advantage of any day off...your daughter had the right idea! And that little white pitcher is so very classic...loving it! And yummo to clemintines...i heart them!

Love the pic of your yard and then the one across the street. You are right about how a little sunshine makes all the difference.

You daughter just had to live up the last day home while she had the opportunity. The dog may as well enjoy it too, right? :)

It's -11 degrees here right now, I'd kill for a look at grass, lol!

Love the white pitcher.

Our street has the same effect, with houses on one side all melty & the other side still covered in snow.

Those clementines look great! I've been getting regular tangerines but I'm tired of dealing with the seeds.

I was so laughing at the doggie under your daughter. Now THATS gotta be a warm place to sleep! :)

We have areas in our yard where the sun never gets & the snow melts when Spring finally arrives
