Cabin Fever Cures


Friday and Saturday, the winter blues were encroaching. Then my friend Kelly sent me flowers at work to thank me for helping winter suck less. πŸ™‚

“Thank you for helping me embrace winter.”

AWWWWW! How sweet is that?? Thanks, Kelly! You brighten my winter, too. πŸ™‚

The big gravel pit banks looked kind of intimidating to the 5Β  year-old, so I broke out the food coloring and some spray bottles. Also reeeeeeeally brightened up the winter landscape.

Names in the snow. Hygienically.

I always wanted to write names in the snow...

Also, there was some awesome sledding on the gravel pit banks.

Hear the fire crackling in the background? We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows.

Everybody wants to kill that one bush in the gravel pit…

Also, Jill stopped by to model her newest in Funny Farm Fashion. πŸ˜‰

All in all, it was the perfect day to ENJOY winter. 30 degrees above zero was reason enough to celebrate. On a related note, the Finns allegedly have more words for “snow” than the Inupiat. Check out the link…Finnish words for snow.

As usual, please like, share, or pin to spread the joy. πŸ™‚

    That looked a lot more fun than shoveling my roofs.
