1. Today marked the sixth day in a row of no school, hence no work. Teacher conferences, the weekend, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and today, A SNOW DAY! Three or four inches of very wet snow made a pretty landscape and created a mood of hibernation.
2. I made a wonderful recipe of French Onion Soup for dinner. My favorite part of this soup is the toasted French bread croutons, rubbed with garlic and melted with Gruyere, then set afloat on the soup to get all soggy and chewy. It reminded me of our college days when Steve and I would go to Holmes and Watson (Troy, NY) for the best French Onion Soup ever.
3. Being snowed in, I decided to box up the rest of Daughter #3's things and clean her bedroom. It was a bittersweet task to handle 4H ribbons, photographs, books, and a multitude of animals and horses that still resided in her room.
