Snow Day!

Well it is the end of Spring Break and it snowed! I must admit that I was a little bummed about the cold weather, not because I don't like snow but because earlier this week I took our fleece sheets and heated blanket off our bed until next winter! So I bundled up in flannel pajama pants and a thermal top for bed and stayed cozy!

We did go out in the snow for a few pictures since we hadn't taken any snow pictures this winter! Unfortunately we have no hills here so we can't go sledding!

A sweet snow kiss!!

I couldn't resist taking a picture of my boots covered in snow!

We have spent the past two days being very productive! On Friday we woke up early and I cooked breakfast, ham and cheese biscuits, which were absolutely amazing! I love these biscuits! After breakfast we went to Lowe's, Hobby Lobby, and Wal-Mart because John David was buying supplies for a project he is undertaking! We had so much fun shopping together for his project!

When we got home from shopping John David began working on his project (I will publish pictures when he finishes!) While he was busy working I altered two shirts of mine for the summer (they both turned out great and actually fit now!) I also began cutting out an apron. We were both busy all evening with our fun projects.

This morning I woke up at early and I worked a little for Co-op. After lunch I began working on my apron, it is a garden apron for when I finally get my own garden, I cannot wait to use it! I was able to finish it all today and it turned out really great!

My garden apron! The pattern is from my grandma and John David's mom gave me the fabric (as soon as I saw it I knew it was going to be an apron!)

Now I am all ready for gardening, minus the garden! I now realize how much I took for granted living on a farm and the joys that come with that lifestyle. I always wanted to live in town and now that I am in town I find myself eagerly awaiting my return to a farm (or a least a backyard where I can garden!)

rmxrmGlad to see that you got your share of the white stuff. Ours is still here but melting quickly. Sounds like you had a great time being home during spring break. Your apron looks fabulous. I will let you work in our garden anytime that you like. Just bring that little apron home next time you come.

The apron is great! Glad you could recycle the fabric into something useful. You got more snow than we did. I hope you get that garden soon.

Hey, Rachel ...

I am very proud of you and all your sewing projects ...

You both always seem so happy ... both being together and in the "simple" things you do together ...

See you soon in Gatlinburg!
