Digging out...kind of?

We have just enough of our driveway dug out to nudge our car into and away from the gravel lane. My son was able to get the car out yesterday evening to have an early dinner with one of his best friends at Wendy's. Teenagers can get cabin fever after about five minutes. Even my son who does enjoy being in his room, on his computer...with snacks. :)

We're headed into town this morning to purchase more cold medicine and Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat Tea. We could survive without it but more snow is on the way this weekend and I know Mothers can get cabin fever after a week so it is a good thing to get out awhile. Although, truth be told...I'm still enjoying being inside. The Winter Reading Challenge ends on February 28th and I have some serious reading to do!

Christopher has to work at the bookstore tomorrow so I'm packing a duffel bag for him in case he needs to spend Saturday night at our friend's house in town. It's beginning to look like travel by Saturday evening would not be wise, especially for someone who has not driven in these conditions before.

My hubby finally has his newspapers (three in the rural newspaper "box" by yesterday afternoon) but we still haven't received mail. We are at the end of a rural route so I expect it just hadn't arrived when we last checked. I am certain the children who attend our county schools are excited to have the snow day of their dreams!

I'm curious to see what the world looks like with all of this snow, so I'm off now to explore.

I've been out for a few hours and now I am home. All I can say is, there is a LOT of snow out there!

Hi Brenda, I have been lost in your blog for at least half an hour. I'm thinking the brownie cheesecake with a chocolate ganache topping recipe definitely needs to be posted on your recipe blog...So I hope you get a chance to try it out soon ;) You make me feel like baking!
