#PolarVortex2014 Part 2

A few weeks ago, we were holed up at home, held captive by #PolarVortex2014 Part 1. And here we go again, Part 2. We've had FOUR days off of school this winter, a new record for a school district that only calls of school due to very dire weather events. As I write, at 10:36 a.m., the temperature here in Chicago is -6!

But it's warm and cozy in our home. And my daughter has set up the best spot in the home, a tuffet on the radiator, where she is working on crafts in the sunshine. Smart girl! Our dog, Gizmo, is looking out for her, making sure no rogue squirrels wander onto our property.


Here's what I made for breakfast this morning: pancakes, leftover from yesterday, that I transformed into bunny heads, spread with Nutella, and decorated with Cherrios, accompanied by bananas spread with peanut butter. We are thinking Spring!


As always, our thoughts and prayers are with everyone working out in this cold weather today. Stay safe and stay warm and think spring!
