Taking Care of Business

This winter has been long, cold and icy.  The supposed Polar Vortex enshrouded the Midwest in snow, freezing temps and high winds.  Normally, I would welcome the heaps of glorious snow since my kids love to play outside and it wear them out, thus reducing cabin fever.  That is not an option when the temp drops to negative degrees.  Baking cakes and roasts was a great way to heat the house and the boys loved eating cake late at night!  We all love our cozy cottage of a home, but it feels really, really small when we have been trapped inside for weeks on end.....

Here is a picture of the little guy building "machines" with his wooden blocks.  Our new cat, Roger Wee, enjoys watching him from under the stool.

Stay warm!
