Yesterday I worked in the morning with the 18 month to 3 year olds at MOPS and then did all the shopping. I then met Chris and Heather on my way home in Palouse to get the little boys and bring them home with me so that we could watch them while Chris and Heather went to a movie. I had picked up a pizza for dinner because I knew that I had a really long day by that time and was really tired. Well, the dog literally ate the whole pizza so we had LIttle Smokies sausages and homemade russet and sweet potato jojos instead. We had so much fun with the grandboys and they enjoyed being able to hot tub with their parents when they got here. It was a really good day and one that I totally enjoyed...despite the dog eating the pizza. 😉
This morning I woke up with no voice and thankfully had nowhere I had to be. The temperatures took a dip into the single digits last night and it is a beautiful, if not frigid day outside. We are expecting back to back days of snow starting tomorrow. Luckily I got all that we needed from the grocery store yesterday to see us through.
Rufus and I have been seeking out the warmth of the pellet stove. He of course wants to be as close to it as possible, especially after he has taken a quick trip outside because he is a finicky cat that still thinks he NEEDS to go out on the back porch, even if it is just for a few minutes before he decides that it is just too cold and then goes and sits in front of the stove to warm up.
I've been curled up on the couch wrapped in a new fuzzy bathrobe with a blanket that my mother made for me. Netflix has been entertaining me while I watch a marathon of the old TV series "It's a Different World". I loved that show when it first aired and am enjoying it all over again now. I am trying to get caught up on the laundry since it is something that is never ending and I can fold it all while just sitting here. To be honest, that is about all I can handle today. I'm not sure if I am getting the virus that has been plaguing my husband or if I have just pushed myself too far again (or possibly both). Either way, I am listening to my body as it tells me to rest and take care of myself.
