Wardrobe Wednesday

For the second day in a row, we're snowed in. Well, it's more like we're forced inside because of all the wind outside. School was called off yesterday, and today almost everything in southeastern Wisconsin is closed, so the Gardener is home today too. The only activity I've seen on our road today (a state highway) is the snow plow coming past trying to keep the road open and passable.

From what the weather people say, we received over a foot of the white stuff but since the winds were whipping at blizzard speeds for most of it, it actually looks like we have a net loss of snow in some areas of our yard. Our driveway only has a tiny drift in it and most of the front yard is blown clean but the orchard on the back side of our house is completely buried. Only the very tops of our apple trees are peeking out of the giant snow drifts.

Yesterday the girls and I spent most of the day baking and playing games and enjoying the day off but today the novelty of being confined to the house is starting to wear off. This morning was filled with fighting. "She hit me!" " Well, she took my toy!" "I had it first!" "NO, I did!" And on and on until I told them they were not allowed to play together if they were going to fight. Then something strange happened. They got out the dominoes and started building structures TOGETHER. It didn't last long but I did manage to snap a photo of them with smiles on their faces. Not any crazy outfits on this snowed in Wardrobe Wednesday but we're all warm and comfy. I'm not looking forward to venturing out in this crap weather to go to the farm tonight, but it is payday so that helps.

The linky I normally use isn't working today for some reason (I think our Internet connection is goofed up because of the weather) so if you have a Wardrobe Wednesday link, leave it in the comments and I'll add it to the bottom of this post.

Glad you're staying cozy and warm. Sorry you've got to head out to the farm, though. :-/

The Lizard King is at a training class in Boston. They're snowed in and today's session was cancelled. Crazy stuff, especially since we've barely had winter here in Portland.

I've got my WW up on my blog!

I'm glad it's not just our 2 girls that fight all the time!

As you saw I doubled up and did a Scavenger/Wardrobe
Wednesday post!

They are so cute. We are snowed in here too (2 days as well.) I can't wait for them to go back to school. Too much togetherness means fighting in our house.

A relative in Illinois wrote yesterday and said he planned on staying in until Thursday because of wind. Yikes.

So glad we only had one day off. It was nice.

It's so funny how sisters close in age like that can go from fight club to love in a matter of seconds. My two girls are like that as well. Even as older teens they do the same thing, lol.
