Snowy Days

This morning I woke up to the beautiful sound of my alarm clock at 5:30.  I snoozed until 5:45, figuring that would still leave me enough time to get ready and packed up before my trip to school starting at 6:45.  An hour- yes! I could do it. Fixed my hair, washed my face, ate my breakfast, undressed.... and I got a text message. School's closed today??? Wait, did it even snow??!! I look out my window, knowing that the forecast last night said "zero percent chance of precipitation" and it was mostly right... the cars had only a light dusting.

So I put my pajamas back on!

And now I have enough time in my day to play catch up from this weekend, which was amazingly fun, but left me lesson planning like a mad woman last night.

Friday I pulled in to my driveway after school, blinked, and my grandparents had arrived. Yay! We had a very fun evening going to Disney On Ice to watch my cousin skate.  I would post pictures, but I don't think I'm allowed to say online what characters my cousin skates... plus none of them really turned out because its difficult to capture on film the zippy skating talent that we saw. But we had fun! And then gramma and grampa took us out to dinner with my cousin and we had a fabulous time. (o:

Saturday we relaxed, coffee in hand, with gramma and grampa after a much-needed sleeping in.  But after they left to go home, we had to get back down to business: laundry!  I then proceeded to make a grocery shopping list, but the day somehow slipped away from me and I never got the chance to go. (Something I think I'll add to today's list!)

Sunday morning church was great. The assistant pastor had a good message and the bell choir played an amazing piece. We were invited to lunch at our friends' house, which was very enjoyable. Around 3:30 we headed back to church for youth group - it was MINUTE TO WIN IT night!!!! Adults and kids alike had so much fun playing games requiring the most interesting skills (anyone know how to blow a greeting card across a table and have it hang off the edge by one side in less than 3.2 seconds??? Apparently, our youth group is so talented!)  Then it was 6:30 and we rushed home to finish lesson planning and to watch the Jets lose their chance to go to the Superbowl... it was a sad ending to an otherwise amazing day.

Now it's Monday and you're all caught up! Now it's my turn to catch up with myself - today's to do list: everything that I set out to do and didn't from last week!

A recent recipe of mine: pizza rolls! Pretty easy: my mom's pizza dough recipe, divided up and folded into little pizza pockets. This was what held us over before the Disney show. (o:


  1. ooo - the pizza pockets look yummy!! :o) recipe, dear?

  2. Easy!

    Pizza Dough:
    2 TBSP yeast
    1 1/2 cups warm water
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 tsp salt

    Add 3 1/2 cups flour and knead just until mixed well.

    Divide into little balls, let rise for 30 mins.
    Flatten with rolling pin and top with pizza stuff, then pinch it together like a little pouch!

    Bake at 375 for 15-20 mins!
