This week, I only posted once, because I had a lot happening at work and two members of our house came down with the stomach virus.
Sometimes you just need a break, you know?
Still, we had a lot of good things happen.
Our church had its annual valentines dinner and it was delicious. Look how pretty our church is at sunset (shot from the historic sanctuary on the hill).
Last week, we headed two hours west to my grandma’s house to celebrate her birthday with her. I’m not going to post her picture here out of respect to her, we saw some snow while we were there. We went out to lunch and had a blast.
We finally jumped on the air fryer bandwagon and bought an air fryer. We have enjoyed making delicious foods in it- my favorites were bacon, marinated barbecue chicken tenders, and a copycat Chick-fil-A sandwich with waffle fries. We haven’t eaten out all week. Yum!
We shored up our polytunnel and started our flower and veggie seeds. These will be planted in our garden at the end of April.
We hung these sweet Edison bulbs on our back porch last week. Our back porch is undergoing a bit of a transformation, so more about that later.
And lastly, a sweet friend of ours made us these shirts. Aren’t they awesome? Maybe some day we will sell merch.
Get ready to read the most boring “ what we’ve been up to” you’ve ever read. Why is it boring? Because my household caught Covid and we have been up absolutely nothing. Except resting, drinking fluids and trying to feel better.
On Monday, we woke up to one of the scariest storms I’ve ever seen. I live in North Carolina, so I have seen some pretty scary storms. The wind was howling and it was pouring rain. Mid morning, that turned into snow! It didn’t last long, but it was pretty. This was taken from my classroom window.
My ten year old no longer wants to wear hair bows, so she passed all of hers to my six year old. I had no idea we had so many bows.
We were invited to go skating last weekend by some sweet friends. The girls didn’t quite get the hang of it, but they had fun.
I had some gift cards to spend from Christmas, so I bought this picture. It has silkies on it, so it’s perfect for me. They look just like our chickens.
We are on the mend over here, but still quarantined. Thanks for sticking with me and reading to the end of that boring post. Hope to see you next weekend with a more interesting post.
