SNOW and More SNOW

These blizzards have reaffirmed my convictions that I can never home-school.  I don't have the required discipline, I am much too "oh, well."  I have had the valentine stuff out for two weeks and not one of us has completed them.  Valentine's Day is going to be buried in snow at this rate anyway. 

We got out of the house yesterday and met friends at the movies.  We saw the "Tooth Fairy" and if you go in with low expectations.....it can actually be better than you thought.  We are all really excited to see "The Lightning Thief".  If you haven't read this series then you should.  It is a great series for kids and adults.  Riordan really
brings greek mythology to life!

The Lightning Thief (Movie Tie-in Edition) (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)

I have almost finished a quilt I started at MAQ in 2008.  It is called "Ned's Redemption".  I had been sewing on it steadily and got to the bottom corner and a block was missing.  I marched downstairs and gave the kids "the I don't care who did it, just return it" rant.  Of course, they all vehemently denied seeing the fabric.  Later I caught Ned pinning the fabric to it's spot.  The cheeky little bastard actually said, "mom, you should thank me for finding your fabric."   It is almost done, but I have goofed it up and think I may have to cut the border off.  The entire quilt is on the bias and so the border really stretched.  It is frustrating to be almost done and have it looking ratty.  I am pondering this dilemma. before I do anything.  I think I am going to stick to small quilts, by the time I finish a large one, I don't like it anymore.  This quilt isn't even that big.

I made a batch of cookies, a day stuck inside is a day that requires chocolate chip cookies.

  1. I don't even HAVE kids and homeschooling sounds like hell to me. Being inside over the weekend was okay, but by Monday morning I wanted to get away from 1. Thomas 2. The dogs and 3. The house.

    I don't have what it takes for agoraphobia.

    When will all this snow end?
