Woke up to a scene, much like the one pictured above! Crazy, overnight dusting of snow, left a final (hopefully!) Winter wonderland. Naturally, we had to be on the road for 7:30 a.m. as 2 kids had 8 and 8:15 appointments at the same MD. Worst was the iced over car. If I know there may be snow, I back into the garage, nosing out my car. No power last night meant no late evening news broadcast. We made it to our appointments on time, with no issues.
Immediately returned home, got the wood stove going again, as temps may not climb out of the low 30's, and the forecast is for record breaking cold tonight (24 degrees F). I've placed plastic grocery bags over my planters, to protect my recently planted Panseys.
Breakfast was naturally quick this morning-just the usual. Lunch is pizza leftovers and dinner is the spaghetti and meatballs that we didn't have last night. The CP is again simmering them.
I've done a load of towels, they are now drying. Today was my baking day, a bunch of black bananas have been staring me down for a few days. I made a batch of what I call "Monkey bars"-a banana-mini choc chip cookie bar recipe, as well as 1 loaf of banana bread (with the good 1/2 of a bad apple finely chopped as I didn't have enough leftover banana for the recipe), 2 loaves of pumpkin-pecan bread. This baking also keeps the home warmer.
Next up: the mountain of mending needs attending to. That's this afternoon's project.
