The Winter, It Is Here

And Bria still refuses to wear tights.

She also refused to wear a coat of any type to church today, and that dress she's wearing has short sleeves.  Crazy girl.  It's actually amazing that she bothered to put one on for our Sunday photo today.

As you can see, winter has officially arrived in the Keweenaw.  It's been so cold this weekend, that I have been wearing my coat around the house.  And to sleep in.  And, unlike Bria, I would have worn three coats to church if I could have figured out how to do it.

But, be proud of me.  Because yesterday I had a million errands to do, and even though when I woke up and looked at the weather on my phone and saw this
The red exclamation point was a winter weather warning for lake effect snow.  We were supposed to get ten inches.  Thankfully, we didn't even get half of that.

I still got my butt out of bed, bundled up, and went out to shovel the driveway so I could run my errands.  (Joel totally would have done it for me but he was picked up by a friend before I was awake to go play basketball.)

The only thing keeping me from staying in bed is that it really is my favorite time of the year as far as holidays and family traditions go.  As far as the weather goes, well, I will tolerate it until Black & Blue January.

Happy Sunday!

  1. I love how your phone says, "Today is a bad day for outdoor fitness". Ya think?

    How did we ever survive Eastern Europe? I lived in my big puffy coat, fur lined boots and long underwear when I was in BG.
