My back yard Thursday morning.

The title of this post refers to the light snow we received Thursday morning and not to the household chore I despise.

(For the record, there is not one single household chore I do not despise. I do, however, love all types of snow, even if it's only light.)

It was my day off from work, and the Chesapeake Bay Children had no school. After a blissful morning that included sleeping well past my normal time, I spent the day cooking--homemade turkey vegetable soup; Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes, cookies, etc.

We ate well.

(By the way, in my opinion Salisbury steak is just a fancy word for hamburger with gravy and onions.  However, it does sound better than hamburger with gravy and onions.  Still, to call that steak is a bit of a stretch.  Poor Man's Steak would be a better label.)

The Thursday night basketball game against West Point was cancelled due to schools being closed.  The girls play tonight/Friday at West Point assuming we don't get more snow, which they are calling for Friday afternoon.  If that game is cancelled we play Saturday night. The previously scheduled Saturday game over on the Eastern Shore has been cancelled.

(If you don't understand the above paragraph, don't worry.  I barely do either.)

Personally I am hoping for lots and lots of snow, much more than a dusting.  We shall see.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend.

sounds like you had a relaxing day with your children...everything sounds so good. I like salisbury steak, yum! If I ever decide to go grocery shopping, going to get the fixings for beef vegetable soup.
No snow here, envious of you!
Expect to get a few inches tomorrow tho...have a fabulous weekend!

We didn't have much snow here either. But it was 16 degrees out. And I locked my keys in my van while pumping gas and had to call the tow truck. I wish the snow was happening early enough to be able to say I wasn't going in to work. I need a day. I'm thinking I should buy the Wolf Trap Lighthouse and live there (it's currently for sale for something like $250,000)

My mom used to bake haddock and called it Poor Man's Lobster.

I'll send you snow in a thermos, by air mail, okay? If I can find a really BIG thermos, you can have ALL our snow.
I have enough trouble with my husband's basketball schedule. Your daughter's confused me thoroughly, with all the ifs, ands and buts. However, if she plays, I hope she wins!
And I hope you don't get lots of snow. It can be much less exciting than a dusting.

We only have a dusting here as well. I was hoping for more too. But I'll take this. xo
