It is beautiful here today. Sunny and warm(er) and Abbey has been playing in the backyard all afternoon. I've even had the windows open! I love days like this. But...
A storm is supposed to blow in tonight and dump 4-8 inches of snow on us and drop our temps about 30 degrees. I was up at the kids' school this morning and everyone is talking "snow day" tomorrow. Teachers were even making contingency plans for their Valentine parties should they be cancelled due to the weather.
I don't get too optimistic about snow days anymore. Probably because we've had 2 as opposed to the ten we had used by this same time last year. But I'm wondering if today's lovely weather is the calm before the storm? We'll see.
We're having a friend for dinner tonight. I have Joanne's Minestrone simmering on the stove, bread in the bread machine, and the salad ready to toss. I need to sweep the kitchen and make sure the bathroom is clean and get the table set. Definitely more calm around here than it normally is before company comes. Is this the calm before the storm too?
