Second Snow Day. Cabin Fever Coming Soon.

Snow Day #2!

We had a foot of snow!  I am so thankful for this little hometown of ours.  A good friend, knowing the Hubby is working in the city, came by last night with his snow blower.  Bless You, KP!  Unfortunately, with the high winds leading to blowing snow...the driveway drifted again.  I spent most of the morning on the couch with Charley dog, drinking out of my giant coffee mug trying to work up the courage to get bundled up and head out to shovel.

The current temperature here today is 4°.  Four degrees, people.  Wind chill is well below zero.  In just over two weeks, the Hubby and I will be in Miami.  Current temp there?  79°.  Yes, I'm doing my best to envision this while sipping my coffee.    

The two little boys, daughter and I will be having Grands Biscuit Pizzas for lunch.  I have leftover spaghetti sauce so that's my substitute pizza sauce.  Always looking for ways to use what we've already got!  

We had some oranges in the fridge that weren't getting eaten as quickly as they should so this morning I peeled and segmented them and put them in a bowl in the fridge.  Maybe they'll get eaten faster if they can just grab a piece or two.  But let the peels go to waste?  No way!  I put a few oranges worth in the crock pot with two cinnamon sticks and a dash of ground cloves and have it simmering.  It smells so good in here.  It's like I'm inside a cup of autumn tea.  

Oh, yes, I put the rest of the peels in the freezer and will do it all over again soon.  Waste not, want not! 

Have a great day, bloggers!  Stay warm!
