We got snowed in and didn't go anywhere for five days. It was a nice, relaxed five days. I fixed something in the crockpot each morning and made homemade bread each afternoon. Pizza soup, country lima bean and cabbage soup, creamy chicken noodle soup, white chicken chili, and Mexican meatball rice soup. By the end the boys (who truly do love soup) were like, "Why do we eat soup every single day?". I think they were getting ready for a revolt. Luckily, we also had homemade pound cake and brownies and marzipan cake, and one day I made grilled cheeses and fried eggs in a cast iron skillet on the wood stove, even though our power never went out. Always good to practice the homesteading skills.
The bob sled run made a return this year, much to the boys' (and the dog's) delight. We read through all our library books, and the boys did individual research reports on T-Rexes, spies, and computer coding. We kept the wood stove going and the kettle on for tea and hot cocoa.
I don't like winter and cold and I don't like snow, but in the end it isn't so bad being snowed in for a few days.
Readers, how do you feel about winter?
